School superintendent on Texans star: 'You can't count on a black QB'

Redden referenced the last play of the game in which Watson held onto the ball in the final seconds.

"That may have been the most inept quarterback decision I have seen in the NFL".

Redden told Chron.com that he has not faced any repercussions from the post as of Monday afternoon. "When you need precision decision-making you can't count on a black quarterback", he wrote, referring to Watson holding the ball for a lengthy amount of time as the clock continued to tick and time eventually expired.

Redden maintains he wasn't aware that the post was made public, later deleting the comment and expressing his regret afterward telling the Houston Chronicle, "I totally regret it".

In an interview with the Chronicle, Redden says he regrets posting the comment.

The Onalaska educator insisted that the post disparaging black quarterbacks was not meant to be racist.

And beyond just having to fight a "normal" fire, crews in this video contend with what Schidlowsky refers to as a fire "tornado". While fire tornados, or whirls, aren't uncommon, it's rare to see one so close.

He would later delete the comment, but not before somebody got a screen shot.

Redden says he based the comment on what he calls the "limited success" of black quarterbacks in the NFL.

Watson threw for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns in seven games previous year. His feat came after Doug Williams did the same for Washington in 1988.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson became the second black quarterback to lead his team to a Super Bowl title in 2014, helping defeat the Denver Broncos. "It's important to make sure disgusting words are met with consequences, especially for those in powerful positions with influence", the resident, Matt Ericksen, said. The comment was posted to a Houston Chronicle Facebook page, and the official said he thought he was responding instead to a private message from a friend.

The Onalaska school district has about 1,020 children.
