And right now is almost a pariah in Baltimore because people are trying to decide, you know, whether Lamar Jackson should be the quarterback now or next year or the year after he will be the quarterback eventually Alex Smith of who I hate what has happened to him in the last few weeks.

But in underrated quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick because a fascinating story got a degree in economics from Harvard was the two hundred fiftieth picking the NFL draft and he's still going in his fourteenth season with seventeen Andrew luck who was dealing with what he thought could be a career ending injury, which is very much a part of playing quarterback. Again, look at what Alex Smith is going through right now and Doug Williams because I want I needed an African American voice in the. A book because even to this day being an African American and playing quarterback is different than being white and playing quarterback.

He's got a great arm because he can run fast or because he's African American. Apparently, you know, some people still think that way, unfortunately, so Doug was great to have first African American quarterback to win a Super Bowl and really really smart insightful guy.

Always a pleasure.."
