Redden blamed Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson for the loss. "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.
In an interview with the Chronicle, Redden says he regrets posting the comment.
He said he could see how people would interpret his comment as racist, but he said he was talking about the lack of statistical success of black quarterbacks in the NFL.
"Over the history of the National Football League, they have had limited success", he told the newspaper. His feat came after Doug Williams did the same for Washington in 1988.
According to the Chronicle, Redden quickly deleted his comment, but a Houston-area resident captured an image of it and alerted the newspaper.
"It's important to make sure frightful words are met with consequences, especially for those in powerful positions with influence", Ericksen said.
Erickson added that while he didn't have children in the Onalaska district, he was concerned about what he saw as an overtly racist remark made by someone in Redden's position. Redden told the Chronicle he wishes he never shared that sentiment.
Redden said he hasn't faced any repercussions from his Facebook comment.
