    Truth is Rush often says things that ruffles others feather’s. He can come across very abrasive sometimes and yes, he probably could have, should have, positioned the McNabb comment a little differently. But was his comment right and the truth? Many would say yes and defend it. Even the ESPN vice president defended Rush’s comments at the time, as did Chris Berman, just not the way he said it. McNabb himself admitted he was not playing well, certainly not as well as the media was portraying it, and said he did not fault that part of Rush’s comment. Anyway, the point is, they knew what he meant and that Rush’s intentions were good.

    The fact is, it was not a racist statement but it was interpreted as a racist statement by many who know better. This is the big problem, as I see it. If we continue to hold on to the past and see things through that prism, then of course we could interpret what he said as racist. Those people, including Sharpton and Jackson, need to move on. It is their over sensitivity to everything and anything concerning anything racial that makes this the problem, not the fact that Rush said what he said. And yes, Mr. Goodell should realize this as well. Can we not just move on?
