“This was a discussion on what’s wrong with the Eagles and what’s wrong with McNabb. And from that, why, you would think that I had gone back and wished for the South to have been successful and everything that goes along with that. I mean, it’s literally incredible.”
“I was comparing McNabb’s reputation on the field to his reputation in the media. The media has portrayed Donovan McNabb as a great quarterback, and they have credited him almost exclusively with the Eagles’ success, and I’ve always thought that there were more components to the Eagles’ success than just the quarterback.”
“At one point we didn’t have enough black quarterbacks. Well, now there are quite a number of black quarterbacks and it’s my opinion that the sports media, being liberals just like liberal media is elsewhere, have a desire that black quarterbacks excel and do very well so that their claims that blacks are being denied opportunity can be validated.”
“I guess if you listen to the elitist liberal sports media, I nor anybody else who hasn’t been somehow close to the game or played it or whatever, shouldn’t be on a program where these items are discussed.”
“Fans are often wrong. Everybody disagrees with everybody when it comes to opinions expressed about practically everything, including sports.”
“If anybody is entering politics into this, it’s the sportswriters, not me. I have studiously avoided it because I know people are laying in wait for it.”
“You know, the critics here have a little bit to explain themselves. I think they have some questions to answer. Who is entitled to speak about these things on the media or privately or publicly? Who decides that? What is the criteria for determining somebody’s value or worth in this regard?”
“These are the people who claim to be the most tolerant among us. This is the compassionate left who claim to have the biggest hearts and the biggest degree of understanding, but they’re the ones who are the least tolerant.”
“You think I’m all wet on this. So what? I’m all wet. In your mind, I’m all wet. I’m wrong. Whoopee-doo! You know, why not leave it at that? People who think I’m wrong, think I’m wrong. But it’s gone way beyond that.”
“They can make all the references to the race of athletes and what it means to the community and what it means to the black population of the country and how many kids look up to them. They can do it all day long, but nobody else can.”
“My point Sunday on ESPN was that the defense of the Eagles, I think, deserves a lot of the credit for this team’s success. It’s a sports opinion, for crying out loud – and I think it’s an accurate one.”
“For those of you, by the way, who are saying, ‘Rush, what were you thinking?’ I thought about this the night before. I weighed it, I balanced it, but you know what I decided? Look, they brought me in to be who I am. This is what I think. It’s a sports issue. It’s a sports opinion.”
“This is not by any stretch of the imagination the end of the world. None of this stuff is. To start balancing and weighing what I say versus the political correctness requirements that are out there? Why, I don’t do that here so why should I do it anywhere else? Let the chips fall.”
“You know, this is such a mountain made out of a molehill. So much needs to be said here. I guess at the top of the list would be that we supposedly have freedom of speech in this country, but if you don’t say what people who consider themselves the Arbiters of What Can Be Said agree with, then they want to come after you with everything they’ve got and try to humiliate you and take a stab at your reputation and otherwise get your mind right.”
