Pro Football is a man's game. You also don't see any women playing in the NFL either. Some jobs are just not meant for women, even though I believe any woman is very capable of doing any job a man can do.

A GM evaluates talent. You don't have to play the game to be able to do that. I'm not familiar with many GM's, but I'm sure there have been successful ones who haven't played football.

That's true. Anybody can become a good GM if they understand the game and can recognize good talent. I've never held a front office position in the NFL, but I've been watching the game for 30 years and can evaluate talent when I see it at the high school or collegiate level.

A woman can definitely do a good job as a general manager in the NFL provided she has been following the game long enough and knows what to look for. It's just like a woman can become an owner of an NFL team, as there have been quite of few of those powerful women in the game already.

Jerruh Jones is proof that you don't have to know anything about football to be a good GM.

This question is like asking why would you hire a fat slob to be your nutritionist or your trainer.

Women have no business taking over a position like that in this sport. Could they potentially do it? Sure, but that doesn't mean it should happen.

Women don't play football. It's a man's sport and it always has been.

The fact that women don't play football shouldn't have any impact whether they could run an NFL organization. These guys are current NFL GM's and have never played football either.

I thought the owner of the Rams, whats' her name, was also the GM?

I could be wrong, but I thought when the Rams made their run in '99, they did a story on her and she also did GM duties...

Georgia Frontiere. Don Klosterman was the GM. Ironically the Rams went on to the SB under her (vs Steelers) but she is one of the most hated owners ever.
