TWO NFL TEAMS WITH PERFECT 7-0 RECORDS LED BY BLACK HEAD COACHES WHAT DOES 26 + 6 EQUAL = RACISM

LOVIE SMITH IS PERFECT

Well how about this !

isn’t it SWEET

only TWO undefeated

NFL Teams are left

and it isn’t any of

26 White NFL coaches

with NO Defeats NO

it’s Lovie Smith &

Tony Dungy

Of course that brings as it does again and again us to the Theme of how few African American head coaches there are in the NFL. In 2006 there are 6 Black head coaches out of 32 NFL head coaches. And now the ONLY head coaches with PERFECT records are BLACK. What does that tell you ?

We know what it tells us the Screw Job continues.

For those of you who don’t know but should. The 6 African American head coaches are in addition to Smith and Dungy: Cleveland’s Romeo Crennel, Arizona’s Dennis Green, Kansas City’s Herman Edwards, and Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis. Their combined record so far this season is 25-18 or a .600 % WHICH MEANS BETTER than 22 of the 32 NFL teams.

Yes the 6 teams have a variety of success

While Chicago and Indianapolis are perfect and in 1st Place in their Divisions, Arizona and Cleveland are both mired in Last Place in theirs. While Kansas City and Cincinnati are only ONE game behind their Division leaders. YES it is possible 4 of the 8 Divisions could be won by Black head coaches.

Sunday the Chicago Bears romped over San Francisco 41-10 and against a tougher opponent the Indianapolis Colts prevailed over the Denver Broncos 34-10 both teams preserving their Perfect Records. The only 2 left.

How about that !

If you had to pick the early favorites for the next SuperBowl with about half of this season over it is definitely the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts. Wouldn’t that be something the FIRST SuperBowl EVER head coached by TWO African Americans. That’s sure not WHITE grandpa’s NFL.

Of course the Irony is – IRONY another name for RACISM here – as good as 6 Black head coaches are doing collectively and even if the SuperBowl features 2 African American head coaches there ae very unlikely to be any more than the “record” (sic) SIX Black head coaches currently next season.

In fact both Cleveland’s Romeo Crennel and Arizona’s Dennis Green may be in jeopardy of losing their jobs by the end of this season. So in spite of the impressive successes of Black head coaches only 4 are a sure thing for 2007 ……

Even if 2 African American

NFL Head Coaches

Battle in the SuperBowl

the situation for

Black head coaches

will remain Dismal

Racism takes so

many Forms

in the NFL

( and everywhere )
