Two big NFL news stories today, one good, and the other not so good. The good news is that the Arizona Cardinals are the first franchise team to hire a female coach. In fact, Jen Welter broke right through a barrier, becoming the first female to get hired to a coaching position in the NFL.

Welter will now be part of the select “Big Four”, women who have broken through stereotypes and are at the forefront of professional teams, like Becky Hammon, an assistant coach with the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians seems to be pleased, as he states that coaching is nothing more than teaching, and anyone can be good at teaching.

On the not-so-good news, we have the NFL going up against Tom Brady, who is still waiting and trying to get the four game suspension lifted before the season starts. Brady and his lawyers have tried different strategies including paying a heavier fine, taking blame and apologizing, and a slightly more aggressive approach, threatened to sue the league; that wouldn’t end well.

We do not have enough evidence that Brady was a participant or knew of the actions and didn’t report them, but he won’t take it lying down. He has stated that he doesn’t want any bench time, especially with the Patriots first football game being against the Steelers.
