When Hall of Famer Warren Moon vented to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com regarding the perception of racial bias in criticisms of quarterback Cam Newton, it seemed like Moon was talking specific about the damning assessment of Newton from Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly.
Nawrocki responded to Moon’s argument on Thursday’s PFT Live.
“I think it’s absurd,” Nawrocki said. “I mean, anybody that is familiar with the publication, you can go back and look at what was said about [Notre Dame quarterback] Jimmy Clausen. It was some of the same things. He came across as very scripted and disingenuous in interviews. . . . We treat every player the same. We’re just trying to get to the end result. . . . Evaluate the character and get the evaluation right. I think the best evaluators in the NFL are colorblind in their assessments, and we treat it the same way. We’re not trying to take shots at anybody. It’s all about getting the evaluations right.”
