Black QBs Lead NFL Players OTW For 1st Time, Oakland Raiders Get Josh Gordon? Las Vegas Stadium

ONN – Black QBs Lead NFL Players Of The Week For 1st Time, Oakland Raiders Get Josh Gordon? Las Vegas Stadium Update, Livestream Talk On Zennie62 YouTube

Okay. What is it that Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson, Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes, Indianapolis QB Jacoby Brissett, Dallas QB Dak Prescott, Seattle QB Russell Wilson, Tampa Bay QB Jameis Winston, and Arizona QB Kyler Murray have in common? All of them make up a group of NFL black quarterbacks who were all 2019 NFL Players Of The Week through Week 7, and more than any other NFL player for the first time in league history.

Of the 14 NFL Offensive Players Of The Week named for the AFC and the NFC through Week 7, 9 were African American Quarterbacks, and five out of seven times in the AFC, and 4 out of 7 times in the NFC.

Encapsulated in the historic mark are two time NFL Offensive Player Of The Week winner Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans, Cardinals 2019 NFL Draft 1st Round Pick Kyler Murray, the Bucs 2015 NFL Draft 1st Round Pick Winston, and two quarterbacks that veteran retirements made room for, Prescott (Tony Romo) and Brissett (Andrew Luck).

This is a historic statistic that should be shared all around. Too often, the media (which is still dominated by white male voices) focuses on negative news about NFL black players. Arrest reports, false rumors of violence, and disagreements with coaches, are just a few of the many bad items that get focused on, even if they turn out to be unfounded.

Meanwhile, many NFL black quarterbacks were the focus of false news and fake reports about everything from their pro days to their perceived attitude. Remember the fake news media reports about Teddy Bridgewater’s Pro Day, or how now Oakland Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock said that now Carolina Panthers, then Auburn Tigers QB Cam Newton didn’t have enough heart to be a number one pick? And then, of course, there was the media attack on Jameis Winston for an accusation he was never found guilty of committing against Erika Kinsman.

Others in the media questioned Deshaun Watson’s intellectual ability to run a team in the run up to the 2017 NFL Draft. And no one save for the Colts and Andrew Luck and a few observers (like me) gave Jacoby Brissett a snowball’s chance to do well in replacing Luck.

And what about those who said that Lamar Jackson should be a wide receiver? Where are they now?

Will all of those in the media who contributed to this ever apologize?

Stay tuned.

Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
