A guy that almost goes underfeated and wins the Super Bowl in his first year of coaching? A guy that outcoached Belicheat in the AFC title game? Nobody? Andy Reid was a better option? lolok


Late to the party.

Very few coaches have ever won anything with a bad QB. A Dungy built team under Gruden, the Ravens with Billick and Dilfer, .....Fox came close with Delhomme. Every one of those teams were built on deense, not the Colts. To blame Caldwell for the failure of the entire franchise being built around Manning is just not being honest with reality, Was he really supposed to make Curtis Painter a winner? Could Bill Walsh make Clausen a winner? Let's be serious here.

The NFL needs more white running backs and Asian safeties. Maybe instead of hiring players and staff based on merit they should just fill certain positions with the best of a certain race.

In European soccer leagues they often allocate a team to have a certain number of European players, then a certain number of players from anywhere else in the world. They also have a mandatory number of Germans or Spanish, whatever the home country may be (race not considered, just nationality).

What if the NFL created a policy where a certain number of coaches, players, etc had to be white, black, asian, etc.

This is basically what blacks are asking for, only they only want it applied for their race and want to tell everyone else to screw off. That way if a lot of players are black, it's great for them and in other areas where there are a shortage of blacks, they'll never have to compete or worry because there will be mandates.

Nobody is saying hire crackheads off the street. But yes, blacks are tired of being qualified to do something, and getting turned down. Im sorry if that pisses you off, but...well actually Im not..

Being qualified and being the best available candidate is not the same thing. This is one of the big points of friction between white and black workers. Blacks are quite happy to receive a job based on skin color that they qualify for but may not be the leading candidate for. Simply meeting the minimum requirements does not entitle anyone to a job.
