    The attitude that black men can't play quarterback had been around for a long time, but by the time Limbaugh got himself in trouble, that had long since ceased to be taken seriously even by the racists.

    Sure, there are people who thought that black men SHOULDN'T play quarterback, because they preferred having a white quarterback as the public face of the team, but that had nothing to with winning football games.

    In Limbaugh World, all NFL teams would refuse to have black quarterbacks, and thus no team would be at a disadvantage. But once teams picked the best player for the position, regardless of race, Limbaugh World fell apart. People like Limbaugh were OK with having black players on the team, so long as the team was led by a white quarterback.
