Super Bowl 57 had a lot of storylines. Andy Reid will be Facing Franchise which he once led to the biggest stage of football. Travis and Jason Kelce are make history like the first brothers fight each other in the game. Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts are the first two Black midfielders to appear in the headlines. And then there’s the extra episode everyone is ignoring – the fact that the Kansas City Captain has won five AFC Championship Games and three Super Bowls. since Eric Bieniemy took over as offensive coordinatorand he hasn’t been invited as head coach yet.
The Days After Kellen Moore”agree to break up” with the Dallas Cowboys as their offensive coordinator, he was hired by the Los Angeles Chargers to do similar work in another example of how NFL franchises love to keep hiring the same white people from this time to that time.
This is not about Moore or his race that is why he will continue to be productive until he decides to hang it up. It’s about what Moore stands for, it’s the passion that teams have for putting white coaches first – ignoring the often overrated Black candidates who have waited wait longer to get promoted.
“You know how I feel about Eric,” Reid talked about Bieniemy in 2020. “I think he will be great. There’s a team out there – I don’t know that team, but there’s a team out there – that could actually use him. As the leader of men like him, you won’t find anyone better than him in that category. And above all, he is a sharp attacking mind. So I’m a big fan. Don’t want to lose him, but the reality is, chances are it will.”
Over the past few years, Bieniemy has been interviewed nearly 20 times for the position of head coach but has yet to receive an offer. It’s amazing how the Captains have started this historic race after he and Mahomes became the architects of one of the most intriguing raids in league history.
