With the season finale on tap for Sunday, Donovan McNabb and the FOX Sports Live panel discussed NASCAR and drivers’, particularly Jimmie Johnson, standing in the sports world as “athletes.” McNabb declared point blank that Johnson was not an athlete, prompting rage in the Twitterverse & social media. Of course, it raised the age-old topic as a point of discussion on sports talk radio, and I even got into the fray on FOX Sports Radio Sunday morning.

Johnson claimed his sixth Sprint Cup Championship on Sunday afternoon.
