I just have to get this off my chest.
I was out at the bar watching the game yesterday, and from the first snap, I couldn't believe the misinformed, racist garbage spewing out of the mouth of one of the patrons at the table next to ours. As soon as Denard came out onto the field, I immediately overheard this guy complain, "I don't understand why they're still running that idiot out there at QB. Last week proved that he can't play QB. They need to put Tate in."
For a while, he kept to himself, but as soon as Denard threw that interception (his only interception of the day, mind you), he started mouthing off again, "What a dumb throw. A chimp could do this guy's job. In fact, this guy is a chimpanzee." WTF?
Naturally, Tate came in and had a pretty good performance, no doubt, but it was particularly frustrating hearing, "Look at how much better we look now" despite the lower completion clip and two picks that Tate had on the day. Even after Tate's second pick, the guy kept going on, "That's okay, we should leave him in. Denard needs to move to cornerback; it's obvious that's all he ever was."
It's bad enough that there are people who blame the quarterback no matter what is going wrong with their team (especially with THIS team), but it's just beyond frustrating to overhear this type of misinformed, racist garbage in this day and age. We have a quarterback shattering records left and right who has been very good throwing the ball, but some people would rather just adhere to misconceptions of how football "should" be played and what a QB should look like.
