Rush Limbaugh has entered the football analysis game again. The liberal web site Media Matters for America has audio of Limbaugh's comments this week. Limbaugh said:

And before we go to the break here, folks, I've got to get something off my chest. You know, the game was the game. And the game was what it was. But I - I can't handle anymore press criticism of Rex Grossman. They're writing his name W-R-E-C-K-S. They're just -- worst quarterback ever to play in the Super Bowl. And it's been like this since the Green Bay game -- actually since the Arizona game, a little crescendo of it in the Green Bay game, the last game of the season for the Bears. And it's just unrelenting! It's just -- they're focusing on this guy like they don't focus on anybody! And I tell you, I know what it is. The media, the sports media, has got social concerns that they are first and foremost interested in, and they're dumping on this guy -- Rex Grossman -- for one reason, folks, and that's because he is a white quarterback
I'm dumping on Grossman, although I've also been known to dump on Michael Vick, so I don't think I can be accused of dumping on him solely because he's white. This is hardly the first time Limbaugh has opined about the NFL. He recently said NFL games look like fights between the Bloods and Crips, and he resigned from ESPN in 2003 after saying the media had overrated Donovan McNabb because they wanted to see a black quarterback succeed.
