Absolutely!

If at some point there is a woman good enough to play in the NFL fine.

I will draw the line at pygmies, dwarfs and midgets though. ;)

There is actually a quote by some general (I think) that I cannot find right now. Goes something like: "I don't need any __________, nor pygmies, dwarfs or midgets."

My younger sister could probably have played high school football. She throws like a guy. Great spiral.

It will be a long long time before we get a woman in a top tier or head NFL coaching position.

If anything it's going to be the NBA and it may be soon. If Pops gets his way in San Antonio, Becky Hammon could get his job.

We should be better than this.


Hey no offence to any of the women on here. Just my opinion

Marquette King fits everything above but he is a punter, not a coach, but at one time he played in the NFL ... does he count?

I wish the Raiders would have kept him

Jack, you make this person out to be a token. I hope this isn't the intention of the team from Washington.

Actually I was wrong about the SF coach being a strength coach. She's an offensive assistant.

The woman with Tampa is not a trainer with the medical staff--she is an assistant to the strength & conditionaing coach, a position that is always listed under "coaches."

Tampa also has a female assistant DL coach.

I saw the article, and posted it. No, it was not an intention, because the team was from Washington. She worked as an intern for Ron Rivera in Carolina.

Didn't you already have an avatar with professional women football players? Or am I confusing you with somebody else?
