Black sports fans and black pop-culture media (not sports media) have created a loosely-formed-but-influential social-media and talk-radio information bubble for black QBs. This network of groupthink roars on sports-talk radio, black-owned radio stations, Facebook and Twitter, pumping out the message that Newton, Griffin and others can do no wrong and any criticism of them is rooted in racism. Fear of backlash from this network of well-intentioned enablers causes many mainstream sports analysts (media and fans of all colors) to avoid being totally honest about black QBs.
Thats how a career-killing, information bubble is formed.

As a Cowboys fan, I am afraid of the quality of QB that RG3 might become, but as of right now he has a VERY weak arm.
He is a good athlete, and with time, he may become a solid, truly threatening QB, but I have seen him attempt to chunk that rock for a last minute play and it barely went 40 yards.
He will HAVE to work on that.
