The State of the Black Quarterback
Five of the top 10 quarterbacks in terms of total quarterback rating (QBR) are Black. A Black quarterback leads the NFL in passing yards, passing touchdowns, QBR and passing yards per game respectively. The top two MVP candidates by most prognosticators are Black.

"The Ringer" staff writer Tyler Tynes joins Daniel Tran to talk about the Black quarterback and whether they are treated fairly by the league that employs them and the fans who root for them.
