    Jesse agitated and everybody told him to shut up, but black coaches started getting interviews, began moving up to coordinators, a few black coaches get hired. One of them, landoffreeandthehomeofthebrave, is even a mediocre coach. THAT is a reallyreally good sign.

    This offseason, have 6 jobs opened, each one filled by a deserving white candidate, and no black candidates even mentioned.? were all 6 jobs filled by folks with no HC experience? is that what happened?

    Give me a break. Put this on the political board. I'm sick and tired of the race card being used, teams should hire whoever they want to.

    It IS a legitmimate question when the NFL and Tbu have almost made it mandatory to have a look at black coaches...it DOES seem like that has been ignored by the teams.

    Is this really political, I don't know. If it is then it should be moved.

    If the question is one of equity rather than politics then maybe it should be address on this board.

    If we have to count,we have as a head coaches in th NFL now, Dungy, Smith, Crennel, Edwards, Lewis, & Green. Did I miss anyone? That is 6 out of 32 teams. A few of them are very good coaches, a couple are average, and a couple are bad. Just like any other 'group".

    So, what is the problem? Why should this even be an issue now. I remember a few months ago someone starting a thread asking if the Patriots were the only team who had an all 'white" OL.

    That was a dumb thread then and this is a dumb thread now. We will never get over race if we still keep looking a people by what color they are rather than who they are.

    ilduce, relax. I don't know how to delete, but having the thread up here is not that big a deal. OK, it's a bit political, but it's also all about football. RAC is near and dear to everyone here and we know he had a tough time getting his first HC gig.

    If people can't handle this one thread hanging out in the Pats board, then the heck with 'em.

    For the record, I'm not remotely a fan of JJ, but I do believe in enforcing the league's interview requirements. They don't tell people who to hire, they only tell people to at least consider minority hires. It's not that big a deal.

    wow


    I didn't see that one--seems really stupid to me to ask that question becuase we all know that BB will put the best person at each position (no matter of race)! If you can't do the job, then you're parking cars!

    Rumor has it, that Art Shell may be back in Oakland. He may be the best/worst case scenario for black coaches. I can't remember but he may have been the first African American HC in the NFL, back in the late eighties. I thought that he did a more than comendable job. But he never again got another sniff at any other HC jobs.

    But then again, KC actually gave the NYJ a draft pick for Herm!!!! So there goes that theory!
