So much for MAGA.  That really irks many who were told and believed Africans Americans couldn't play that position at the college or pro level.  African Americans never brought into that thesis but it prevailed during the Bell - Rozelle era of NFL,  If Mahone had come along 40 years ago, he and the other starters would not have been drafted as QB but as WR or DB or not at all.  The AFL, an upstart league, broke that mindset  needing wins and butts in the seats to survive started knocking down walls and  glass ceilings.  Those irked will jump at the opportunity to criticized decisions on each play on TV including personal family events.    It is still sublime but there.   Prescott!  Great example.
