1. KC needs Defensive help. So he allows Al Saunders his offensive coordinator sign with Washington today.

2. He keeps a horrible Gunther Cunningham as Defensive Coordinator.

3. He alienates Priest Holmes and gives away his cards by announcing Larry Johnson as the starter. In January..great strategy Herm. Summer workouts won't be as intense because they are not working toward any goals.

4. Dick Curl is on his staff as clock guru.

Meanwhile...with the Jets


Eric Mangini is getting rid of all the black coaches. I saw the picture of the 5 crackers running our team. I hope he keeps a diverse team. One thing is for sure the coaching staff went Anglo in a hurry!

That last line gave me a little laugh, but I doubt Magnini is racist.

And that's cool. So do I, and so do I think most people rooting for the Jets. But just because those people hired are white, doesn't mean a whole lot. It could just mean Mangini thought those "crackers" were the best qualified.

By the way, I'm white, and I say cracker all the time. biggrin.gif

Rich, I thought last week you were saying that Herm was hired because of affirmative action. Now you want to keep the coaching staff more diversified? Please tell me that your just takin the piss.

Cracker n : a poor white person in the southern US [syn: redneck]

The origins of the term are uncertain. the term may have come from the word corncracker, which describes someone who cracks corn for liquor, a common practice especially in early Appalachia. Wilton writes, "The song lyric 'Jimmy Crack Corn' is a reference to this. In the song, a slave sings about how his master got drunk, fell, hit his head, and died. And the slave 'don't care.' (This was a pretty subversive song for its day.) This usage, however, is probably not the origin of the ethnic term cracker"

Clarence Major, in his Dictionary of Afro-American Slang, lists an interesting idea about the origin of the term. The first is that a "cracker" was a slang term used by 19th Century Georgian slaves to refer to the slavemasters. If this were in fact, true, then the term would come directly from the cracking of the slavemaster's whip. This is quite a peculiar theory, because it would immediately explain the negative connotation that the word has taken. However, there seems to be little or no support for this theory, and no other source that was studied mentions it.

Before the Milwaukee Braves baseball team moved to Atlanta, the Atlanta minor league baseball team was known as the "Atlanta Crackers." The team existed under this name from 1901 until 1965. They were members of the Southern Association from their inception until 1961, and members of the International League from 1961 until they were moved to Richmond, Virginia in 1965. Ironically, an Atlanta team in Negro League Baseball was known as the Atlanta "Black Crackers."

Good stuff Canuck Jet.

On the main point of the article, don't you say that "Donnie needed to go" in another topic Rich? Considering that you belive so, and that the other coaches who were let go were in charge of underperforming units, I don't see how you could honestly believe that race played any part in it.

If you are just saying we need to be careful, I agree. While I don't believe race plays any part in Mangini's or the team's thought process they still need to be careful that the public doesn't get that impression.

Unfortunately, I believe the term "Cracker" is a degrogatory term used to describe a "white" person. AKA Whip "Cracker" "Slave owner" I don't believe that believe that mr richkotite2006 meant it as friendly term. Maybe Mr RK2006 can refrain from using the "Cracker" term on this site. Any derogatory term used towards ANY Race is UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! Jetbag knows this!

This asswipe definitely needs to go. The only reason he posts anymore is to incite something to cause trouble knowing that his posts are inflamatory.

What the hell does the fact that he's letting Donnie go have to do with race? Mangini was the DC in New England. I'm thinking his philosophy is different than that of Donnie, so rather than bumping heads, he released him to pursue a position elsewhere.

I don't like the decision myself as I think Donnie wa sdoing a great job with this Defense, but I'm not about to go accusing the man of being a racist without having something to back up my statements unlike some other people here that need to be on a permanent ban. Ban his IP address already!! Although the numbskull is probably on dial up therefore has an ever changing IP.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

Cracker was originally a pejorative term for a white person, mainly used in the Southern United States. In recent years (as of 2006), the term has gained some currency as a prideful or jocular self-description. With the huge influx of new residents from the North, the term "Cracker" is now used informally by some white residents of Florida and Georgia ("Florida cracker" or "Georgia cracker") to indicate that their family has lived there for many generations. (The term "White Cracker" is usually not used self referentially and remains a slur.) Usage of the term "Cracker" generally differs from Hick and Hillbilly, because Crackers reject or resist assimilation into the dominant culture, while Hicks and Hillbillies theoretically are isolated from the dominant culture. In this way, the Cracker is similar to the Redneck.

As an insult, cracker was and is used most frequently in the South, especially in Georgia and Florida. It is invoked typically against poor, white Americans without formal education and of rural backgrounds.-

However, today the term is commonly used as a racial epithet against white people throughout the US, regardless of socio-economic status, ethnicity or geographic origins.


Etymology
There are various theories about the origin of the term "cracker." The term has been traced to the 1760s, when it was used by the Earl of Dartmouth to refer to frontiersmen who were "great boasters." It may be derived from the Gaelic "craic," meaning "entertaining conversation."

A folk etymology claims the term cracker originated from piney-woods Georgia and Florida pastoral yeomen's use of whips to drive cattle. The word then came to be associated with the cattlemen of Georgia and Florida.

Other theories include references to cracking a whip over oxen when driving cotton to market, the 18th century practice of cracking corn to make liquor, or to poor whites having had to crack their grain because they couldn't afford to take it to the local mill to have it ground. Others suggest that "cracker" derives from the white overseers who cracked the whip to intimidate black slaves. There may also be another possible origin - the first residents of Georgia were British convicts. In this setting the word takes on an illegal or criminal context. The term was used by Charles Darwin in The Origin of Species to refer to "Virginia squatters" (illegal settlers).

Lets see...Eric Mangini gets hired and he's white. He fires 2 black coaches and keeps the 1 white coach. The black defensive coordinator was far superior than the white offensive coordinator in every possible statistic.
The white offesnive coordinator doesn't even want to be there! He should have fired everyone!

It is all about race. Only those people who dismiss it are the ones that are blind and do not want to see.

Head Coaching Hires

Jets: Mangini is white
Saints: Payton is white
Lions: Marinelli is white
Packers: MCarthy is white
Vikings: Childress is white
Bills: To be determined white person
Rams: Linehan is white
Texans: to be determined white person
Raiders: to be determined white person

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that everyone is afraid to hire a black head coach becuase Herman Edwards burned bridges.

What about Dungy, Edwards, Lovie Smith, Marvin Lewis, Denny Green and Romeo Crennel then? Shut up about race because nowadays it isn't an issue in HC hiring. Tim Lewis, Ron Rivera,Donnie, Mike Singletary and Jim Gray are just a few guys who are hispanic or black that will probably be HCs soon and all (and others) were interviewed for the current vacancies.
