If Brian Flores, Duce Staley, Eric Bienemy and Byron Leftwich were all in a group chat, I’d pay big bucks to read the things they’d probably say about the horrible Denver Broncos head coach. Nathaniel hacker and head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders Josh McDaniels have been this season.

When the Pittsburgh Steelers lost 29-17 to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night, you might have recognized that Brian Flores was on the sidelines. It serves as Pittsburgh Senior Defensive Assistant/Linebackers Coach because it is the the only job he could get because of his class action lawsuit against the NFL for its racist hiring practices.

Flores – joined by Ray Horton and Steve Wilks – defends the Staleys, Bieniemys and Leftwichs of the world, as they are tired of being underpaid and neglected when it comes to hiring processes, while bums like Hackett and McDaniels – and many more – continue to have opportunities to show us how underqualified and mediocre they are in coaching football.

Despite all that has been written and discussed regarding the plight of black coaches in the NFL for decades, the last week was a clear example of how intentional blackballing by black coaches has always been intentional, which has never happened. been only exacerbated by how laughable coaches like Hackett and McDaniels have been in recent weeks.

Wednesday, The Washington Post released his series on how the NFL blocks black coaches. This is an examination of the amount of hate and racism that has always been in the NFL’s DNA, which has led to the unfair hiring practices we see on the sidelines and in the offices.

Check out this part of WaPo Columnist Jerry Brewer:

“The descendants of four owners who were part of the black exile still control franchises. George Halas paid $100 for the Bears in 1920. Tim Mara spent $500 on the Giants in 1925. Charles Bidwill paid $50,000 for the Cardinals in 1932. Art Rooney was billed $2,500 for an expansion of the Pittsburgh franchise in 1933. Although they made Black players disappear for a dozen years, they left their families with integrated teams that today are worth billions.

Another section of the Posts report goes on to explain how analysis of three decades of data has shown that since 1990 only 11% of full-time head coaches have been black, as there were 154 white coaches during that time compared to just 20 black men. He also revealed that black coaches who win nine or more games are fired as often as white coaches who only win six or more. The numbers have always been there. However, they have become even more important when you see what is happening on the ground.

In Week 1, Hackett decided to throw a 64-yard field goal instead of fourth-and-fifth with Russell Wilson – a Super Bowl-winning quarterback the Broncos just decided to pay $245 million.

He followed that up in week 2 with a group of time management snafus scratching their heads and even let his tight end perform the option. Denver is 1-1 as they have scored 16 points in their two games. And the only thing the head coach of one of the most disappointing teams in the league had to say was“I have to do better at making decisions, faster and faster and passing that information to the quarterback.”

And in McDaniel’s case, he leads a winless Raiders team that just made history by dropping the the biggest lead the franchise has ever seen. Somehow, Las Vegas lost to Arizona after leading 23-7 in the fourth quarter. They would go on to lose as the Cardinals scored 22 unanswered points, winning the game on a 59-yard fumble return in overtime. During his two stints as head coach (McDaniels led the Broncos from 2009-2010), McDaniels has a combined record of 11-19, but still has a job somehow.

Black coaches don’t have opportunities like this. They’re not allowed to suck as badly as Nathaniel Hackett, or get rehired like Josh McDaniels – who has proven himself better as a coordinator. On Sunday, some of you will probably wonder why your team sucks or doesn’t live up to its abilities. Well, this week answered your questions because it showed us once again that NFL owners would rather lose with white coaches than win with black ones.
