Lynn Redden, superintendent of the Onalaska Independent School District, made that comment shortly after Watson basically ran the clock out at the end of the game against the Tennessee Titans that resulted in a 20-17 loss. “That may have been the most inept quarterback decision I’ve seen in the NFL,” Redden wrote on a Facebook post promoting a Houston Chronicle story about the game. “When you need precision decision making you can’t count on a black quarterback.” He would later delete the comment, but not before somebody got a screen shot. Redden told the Chronicle he wishes he never shared that sentiment. “I totally regret it,” he said in a phone interview with Chron.com. Redden told Chron.com that he has not faced any repercussions from the post as of Monday afternoon.
