The San Francisco 49ers have suspended radio analyst Tim Ryan for 1 game for saying Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson is hard to stop because his dark skin is the same color as the football.

Ryan made the incendiary remark on Monday during a show on the 49ers' flagship radio station KNBR, according to CBS News.

Ryan was describing Jackson's fake handoffs that usually result in the potential MVP keeping the ball and running it in for a touchdown. Jackson led the Ravens to a 20-17 win over the 49ers at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland on Sunday, Dec. 1.

"He's really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson," Ryan said on the radio show Monday.

"But when you consider his dark skin color with a dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see that thing. I mean you literally could not see when he was in and out of the mesh point."

 

Jackson's exploits on the field this season drew comparisons to another famed dual-threat quarterback, former Atlanta Falcons superstar Mike Vick.

While many are happy that a Black quarterback is the frontrunner for the NFL league MVP, others are bitter and hateful.

Many Twitter users defended Ryan, saying they didn't see anything wrong with what he said.

One Twitter user wrote:

"He points out that it's difficult to see someone with dark skin holding a dark football and all black. There is nothing racist about this. It's just a fact that the contrast with the background made him difficult to see."

Another user tweeted, "He's right. I can barely see the football!"

And a third Twitter user wrote: "One game suspension means they know he's right, but they have to pretend for the idiots".

Some Twitter users suggested making the football a lighter color.

Richard Sherman

Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman may hail from Compton, California, but he insists he is not a thug or a gangsta -- despite his thuggish rant in the most talked-about post-NFC title game interview ever.

Most of the country is still buzzing about Sherman's post-game interview with FOX Sports reporter Erin Andrews, in which he disses San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree for disrespecting him after the game.

"I'm the best corner in the game!," he shouted. "When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you gonna get! Don't you ever talk about me!"

A befuddled Andrews asked, "Who was talking about you?"

"N-- Crabtree!," said Sherman, who caught himself just as he was about to blurt out the N-word on national TV.

San Francisco 49ers defeat Atlanta Falcons

San Francisco 49ers defeated the hapless Atlanta Falcons 28-24 after falling behind 17-0 at halftime in the NFC championship game Sunday. The Falcons' momentum faltered after fumbling the ball twice in the 3rd quarter.

The 49ers scrambling quarterback Colin Kaepernick, 25, rushed for only 21 yards in the game. But it was the mere threat of him running that discombobulated the Falcons defense. Kaepernick passed for 233 yards and one touchdown to earn himself a shot at winning his 1st Super Bowl ring.

The Falcons had a chance to win the game in the final seconds of the 4th quarter. But the 49ers defense held quarterback Matt Ryan and the Falcons on 4th-and-4 to win their first trip back to the Super Bowl in 18 years.

The 49ers will face the Baltimore Ravens in the big game that has been dubbed the 'Beyonce Bowl' in New Orleans on February 3.
