Once again, a young black quarterback has been the subject of hand-wringing over an incorrect report of a bad score on a largely ridiculous and largely irrelevant intelligence test. 21st-century racism is so complicated!
Days ago, a report emerged claiming that new Oakland Raider Terrelle Pryor scored a seven on the Wonderlic test. The report was later revealed to be a false one, but questions about your intelligence are the last thing you want to deal with if you're the 11th-string quarterback whose duty it is to back up Jason Campbell, Kyle Boller, Trent Edwards, Sebastian Janikowski, Hue Jackson, Jeff Hostetler, Mark Vlasic, Paul Tagliabue, the dad from ALF, and Steve Bedrosian.
Today's Football Guys follows. It's only the second installment of Football Guys, so please enjoy the hastily-developed one-dimensional characters while they last!

TerrelleGhostbusters: Hi, everyone!
BarksdaleWeakToday: COACH COACH JAMARCUS RUSSELL IS HERE AGAIN
/makes shooing motion with broom
TerrelleGhostbusters: What? No, I'm Terrelle Pryor.
ResemblingABoss: yeah he's smiling, he's definitely not jamarcus russell
BarksdaleWeakToday: /makes welcoming motion with broom
HueJackCity: settle down, everyone. this is Terrelle Pryor, he's going to be our fourth-string idiot moron clipboard-holding doofus nobody
TerrelleGhostbusters: Wait, what? Is this about the Wonderlic?
HueJackCity: yes. now let's get you to work. gonna have Kyle put you through some clipboard-holding drills.
BOLLER: OKAY SO YOUR INSTINCT WILL PROBABLY BE TO KEEP THE PEN IN THE LITTLE HOLE THING ON THE METAL HINGE PART OF THE CLIPBOARD. DON'T DO THAT! IT WILL FALL OUT!
BOLLER: DON'T STAPLE YOUR PAPERS BEFORE PUTTING THEM IN THE CLIPBOARD. IF YOU DO, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO RE-ARRANGE THEM!
BOLLER: WHILE YOU'RE HOLDING THE CLIPBOARD, DON'T FLOP YOUR ARMS AND LEGS AROUND LIKE A DINGUS. YOU'LL DROP THE CLIPBOARD AND EVERYONE WILL TACKLE YOU OFF OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM.
BOLLER: DO NOT JUMP OUT OF AN AIRPLANE WITH THE CLIPBOARD
TerrelleGhostbusters: look, this isn't really necessary
COACH, DWIGHT GOODEN ISN'T SHOWING ME RESPECT
HueJackCity: kid, shape up and show some respect. kyle boller is a super bowl-winning quarterback.
TerrelleGhostbusters: Wait, he is?
HueJackCity: lol no but you totally believed it for like three seconds
we drafted him in 2009 out of the middle of a Cub Foods parking lot
TerrelleGhostbusters: Look, I don't deserve this. The Wonderlic is rigged. They subtracted 15 points from my score because I got one question wrong.
HueJackCity: what question was that
TerrelleGhostbusters: "hey you're not a black guy who's trying to be a quarterback, right"
TerrelleGhostbusters: once I answered that one, the rest of the questions were basically just 15 ways of asking, "if you ever hang out with Ving Rhames do you think I could come along please"
TerrelleGhostbusters: I said I wasn't friends with Ving Rhames, and they gave me a seven.
HueJackCity: OK, well, you're done in this league unless you can go into full "damage control" mode
HueJackCity: seriously, go produce a rap album with Bon Iver immediately
