Clemson Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson said he has long been stereotyped as a run-first quarterback because hes black and is an effective runner. Kareem Hunt Chiefs Jersey .In an interview posted on Bleacher Report, Watson said the label dual-threat quarterback is a code word.People think, Oh, hes a black quarterback, he must be dual-threat. People throw around that word all the time. Its lazy, Watson told Bleacher Report. The one thing I learned early on as a football player is people have their opinions, and I cant change them. But I can show them what theyre missing.People have assumed that I have to run the ball before I can throw it most all of my career, all the way back before high school. Its a stereotype put on me for a long time because Im African-American and Im a dual-threat quarterback. I dont know why that stereotype is still around. Its about talent and the ability to throw the ball, not the color of your skin or your ability to also be a dangerous runner.Watson told Bleacher Report it annoyed him when he was younger.In his two seasons at Clemson, Watson has emerged as one of the best quarterbacks nationally as both a passer and runner. Hes 18-2 as the Tigers starter, and in 2015, his first full season, he became the first FBS quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards and rush for 1,000. He was the Tigers first Heisman Trophy finalist, finishing third, and led Clemson to an ACC title and appearance in the national championship game.Against Alabama, Watson completed 30 of 47 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns. He added 73 yards rushing. Clemsons 550 total yards were the most Alabama allowed all season in a single game. The Crimson Tide finished 2015 ranked No. 1 in adjusted defensive QBR.Then everyone said, Well, lets see how he does against the Alabama defense -- the defense everyone thought was the best, Watson told Bleacher Report. I think my teammates and I proved we can throw the ball.Watson was the No. 1 quarterback in the 2014 recruiting class after breaking several state high school records in Georgia and leading Gainesville to a state championship. He held offers from Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, Ohio State and USC, among many others.Early projections have Watson as the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL draft, if he elects to forgo his senior season. As a sophomore, he threw for 4,104 yards and 35 touchdowns and rushed for 1,105 yards and 12 scores.Injury concerns followed Watson into the 2015 season after he suffered a torn ACL late in 2014 -- his third significant injury that year -- but he remained healthy throughout all of last season. He told Bleacher Report he doesnt think his injury history will scare teams.Not at all, he told Bleacher Report. I think I proved last year that I am durable and can take the punishment. Ive put on about 16 pounds of muscle this offseason, and Im more prepared than I have ever been to handle the hits.He told Bleacher Report a national championship is his main priority after losing 45-40 to Alabama in January. It was the SECs eight national title in the past 10 seasons.Watson said he does not see a disparity in talent between the SEC and ACC. Florida State won the 2013 national championship and made the playoffs in 2014, and Clemson nearly went undefeated a season ago.We had the No. 1 defense in the nation last year. I practiced against the No. 1 defense every week. When we played Alabama, there was no difference to me, Watson told Bleacher Report. Im not saying that Alabama doesnt have talent -- they do. Theyve got some studs over there. But I truly believe theres no difference between the two leagues. Its not overwhelming or shocking to play against the SEC, like most fans think.

The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. DENVER -- Its hard to say what was more shocking: Nolan Arenado failing to come through in the clutch or the Gold Glove winner committing a throwing error.Neither happens happen often to the All-Star third baseman, who is generating some MVP buzz for the season hes having.Arenados errant throw paved the way to a game-altering inning as the Colorado Rockies lost 5-3 to the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. He also lined out to end the game with the potential tying runs on base.That spoiled a fine outing by Tyler Anderson (5-6). The rookie allowed five runs -- two earned -- in seven solid innings and is 5-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 12 starts at Coors Field.He ended up getting through seven, so it was a good outing, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.The slick-fielding Arenado made a costly throwing error in the fourth with the score tied at 2. Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez then delivered two-out, two-run double, and Matt Carpenter added a run-scoring single.We have seen (Arenado) make that play. He makes it look easy and that wasnt an easy play, Weiss said. And then the throw was a little high. It was a tough play.In the ninth, pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn hit a solo homer off Kevin Siegrist to make it 5-3. After allowing a single to Charlie Blackmon, Siegrist struck out DJ LeMahieu before walking Carlos Gonzalez.That brought up Arenado, who flied out to left field to end the game.Arenado drove in a run earlier, giving him an NL-best 124 RBI. He also leads the league in homers (38), which is why Weiss believes Arenado should garner some MVP votes despite playing on a 72-78 squad.One of the best players in the league, Weiss said. But I dont think this will be the last time hes in that conversation.LeMahieu finished 2 for 4 to raise his average to .349 and take a slight lead over Washingtons Daniel Murphy in the NL batting race. Murphy is hitting .348.Martinez labored most of the game. Not with his pitches, but catching his breeath.

Martinez, who turns 25 on Wednesday, gave himself an early birthday present by holding Colorado to two runs while striking out six. The right-hander is 9-1 on the road this season.The altitude affects everybody a little differently, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. It affected him today, for sure.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: There are no plans for surgery on the broken left hand of 1B Mark Reynolds after he was hit by a pitch Sunday, ending his season. Its a tough break for Mark, Weiss said.HOLD THE ONIONSA launched baseball in batting practice left a burger joint in quite a pickle.The Helton Burger Shack located behind the bleachers in left field was closed Monday after a ball broke the glass protecting the prep area.No official word on whose liner actually broke the window pane -- Twitter conversations credited injured Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday -- but it wasnt the restaurants namesake; Todd Helton retired after the 2013 season.BAD BLOOD?The Rockies have some history with Martinez. In July 2015, things got a little heated after he hit LeMahieu with a pitch.Martinez didnt think there was any purpose to a pitch that plunked him Monday night, even though it did sting.I dont think it was any retaliation. That happened last year. Its a new year, Martinez said through a translator. I wouldnt like to think that. I think it just got away.Anderson downplayed it, too.It was a ball that cut and hit him in the shin, he explained.UP NEXTCardinals: With 132 wins, RHP Adam Wainwright (11-9, 4.51 ERA) tries to move closer to tying Dizzy Dean (134) for sixth on the teams career list.Rockies: LHP Jorge De La Rosa (8-8, 5.22) is 4-0 with a 4.01 ERA in four starts against St. Louis at Coors Field.
