Not many of either compared to how many teams ther are in the nfl.


Black NFL head coaches:

Lovie Smith - Chicago Bears
Herman Edwards - Kansas City Chiefs
Tony Dungy - Indianapolis Colts
Marvin Lewis - Cincinnati Bengals
Dennis Green - Arizona Cardinals
Romeo Crennel - Cleveland Browns

Black NFL QBs:

Michael Vick - Atlanta Falcons
Donavan McNabb - Philadelphia Eagles
Aaron Brooks - Los Angeles Raiders
Byron Leftwich - Jacksonville Jaguars
Daunte Culpepper - Miami Dolphins
Again, I know you are looking for racism here. But you are off the spot.... again.

Only one of the five black quarterbacks in the NFL are in the top 10 Quarterback Rating (Donavan McNabb).

Shoot, Aaron Brooks isn't even listed among the top 30 quarterbacks.... and there are 32 teams!?!

23% of the teams have black coaches. Not bad considering blacks are 13% of the United States population. Just because you can play doesn't mean you can coach.


Right--that's why I forgot him, because he is a dinosaur. Smile

Anyway, you are right--black coaches in comparison to the US population, are in great numbers, but considering that the athletes in the NFL are 67% black, that is a disproportionate difference.

Even coaching this league is different than in college. Not all successful coaches in the NCAA Football College (or that matter, basketball) is successful in the NFL. In fact, very few of them are.

True--but I'm looking at it strictly from a numbers' perspective.

True, yet deceptive. You are looking at targeted numbers that are favorable to viewing the situation, as a whole, as racism applied by the NFL.

I am looking at it from a Talent perspective.

So am I hearing you say that the number of black head NFL coaches is fair? If so, I disagree, as the amount of black head coaches is too low of a number and does not assess the talent of blacks in the sport correctly.
So you are saying that Larry Bird and Michael Jordan are the greatest coaches in the NBA?

Both players are great. Jordan even greater than Bird. Bird was a good coach,... hardly great. Jordan... as an part owner of the Washington Bullets.. *couch* Wizards, really screwed up.

Your assessment of great players equal great coaches is way off the mark.

I never said that great players equal great coaches. I'm merely saying that the number of black coaches in the nfl is not indicative of the pool of those who are qualified. You assessment of my assessment is what is off the mark.
