    TBH I have not reflected on this before. Isn't it basically a "business" position with input from the coaches and scouts and with the Texans a "cap" guru? Not all GMs have played the game so that is not a requirement. I am surprised that a woman has not applied or maybe one has and I am not aware. Your thoughts?

    Those positions require no use of the kitchen and/or vacuum cleaner..

    No college coaches are women to my knowledge but in basketball there are. Not sure why. There are many women running businesses succesfully so that is not an excuse.

    It's a man's game, you think a NFL head coach is going to be OK with answering to a woman whose only link to the actual game in her life might have been in a cheerleading outfit?

    Even if you leave off the "man's game" comment, plenty of men have failed at coaching because they didn't play the game or play at a high enough level.

    For the record, I don't endorse that position. I think women have a role in any NFL front office, as long as they understand they're not really in charge of anything. :kitten:

    Maybe no women HCs. But I know there have been female college assistant coaches coaching male teams. I remember at least one that was a kicking coach. I'll need to research who that was. I do also remember a woman as a men's football HC at the HS level.

    I bet Texans Chick would make for a great GM.

    As I pointed out, the GM does a lot of things that has little to do with deciding if a pass or run play should be sent in. I am not deemphasizing a head coach but how much does a GM have to know about Xs and Os? Anyway, I am not making any kind of statement just asking questions.

    Doesn't Mike Brown have his daughter as GM? I recall her negotiating contracts on Hard Knocks.

    I wasn't trying to insult you or anything, sorry if it came out that way. Just don't see a head coach really feeling the need to justify how he's using his players to a woman who never played the game. I'm sure there's a lot of GM's who didn't play pro football but I doubt that there's one who hasn't played at any level ever.

    Did a little digging for you, and surprisingly came up with ONE interesting exception.

    Mike Brown is his own GM. His daughter holds one of the higher up administrative positions.

    Oh, I wasn't offended, but appreciate this comment. Have there ever been football coaches or GMs that have not played? I know in NBA our own Daryl Morey comes to mind.

    Maybe their attention was diverted by homosexuals comparing their issues to the struggles of black Americans?

    Al Davis hired Amy Trask as the first, and only, CEO of an NFL team. That's even better! Right?

    If Rick can be a GM, I cant see why a woman couldn't be a GM.

    What exactly does Rick do? I sure hope Gary doesn't have another sleep apnea surgery during the combine. We saw how that went when Rick was left to his own devices.

    Doc, sleep apnea isn't a reocurring condition? LOL
