    In between the pissing match about morals and marriage and everything else on those two McNair threads, there were actually some good discussions comparing Warren Moon and Steve McNair and it got me to thinking -- who is the best black quarterback in NFL history.

    I think it is pretty interesting topic but there really are only four legitimately in the discussion if you ask me -- Moon, McNair, Randall Cunningham and Donavan McNabb.

    If I had to rank them, I think it would be Moon, McNabb, McNair then Cunningham, though I'd take any of the four.

    What are your thoughts?

    I think I'd do McNabb, then Moon.

    I am shocked, shocked, you didn't include Tarvaris Jackson ;)

    If we're going it that way -- McNabb, an alive McNair and neither of the other ones :D

    The only black man that won a Super Bowl from under center isn't even on the list.

    Doug Williams weeps.

    Doug Williams needs to be in this discussion somewhere.

    Why does race even have to enter the discussion of who is the best black quarterback?

    Not Randall Cunningham? I once dated a girl who was in love with him. Yeah, that went nowhere. :)

    He is in the discussion -- he is fifth behind the other four.

    Zag, winning the Super Bowl scores him major points in my book. Plus, didn't he take Tampa to an NFC title game?

    He might not be flashy, but he sure did top out in a season or two.

    From the Avis group, I would take McNabb.

    No, and really probably not McNabb or McNair either. I rarely am involved with guys who aren't underweight, let alone guys with like muscles and stuff (even reasonably attractive ones).
