The Tim Graham Show: Is Tyrod Taylor held to an ‘unfair’ standard because of race?

Tyrod Taylor said in Sunday's Buffalo News he is held to an "unfair" standard because he's a mobile, African-American quarterback.

Buffalo News senior columnist Jerry Sullivan has heard enough from Taylor and his rationale.

On this week's edition of "The Tim Graham Show," co-host Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, Polo Kerber from The Heyyman Studio, Sullivan and I huddled in the Sports Radio 1270 The Fan studio for a chat on the matter.

For the record, I still think Taylor is a good quarterback. Sully doesn't agree.

Kerber accurately noted the color of Buffalo's quarterback doesn't matter; Taylor's measuring stick is influenced by 17 straight seasons without the playoffs.

 

Tyrod Taylor unfiltered: 'When we win, everything's great. When we lose, they want to crucify me.'

"The Tim Graham Show" airs every Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. on 1270 The Fan. Listen to archived episodes and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
