Stress Can Be Good

Players and coaches should be more honest about the high level of stress in the game.

Is This It For Favre?

Brett Favre's "last stand" and Manny Ramirez issues with performance-enhancing drugs.

Little Reason to Believe

Another neat redemption narrative has been ruined by chemical analysis: Manny Ramírez tested positive for a banned substance.

MLB Steps Up

Of course, if this were a linebacker in San Diego in the NFL, he'd just get a four-game suspension, make the Pro Bowl and everybody would shrug.

If a tree falls...

Shock and disgust has devolved into "so what?" and "who's next?"

Should We Be Surprised?

At this point, positive tests really don't affect my perception of sports at all - I had assumed for years that almost everyone in baseball was juicing.

Produce and It's Forgiven

These days, it seems fans are much more forgiving of a player embroiled in the steroids mess so long as he performs at a high level.

Pity Jason Campbell

Campbell could well have the futures of as many as 10 men, along with their wives and children, riding on every pass.

Manning More Than Sanchez

The greatest pressure, however, falls upon Tony Romo and, to an even greater extent, New York's Eli Manning.

Romo's On the Hook

With a new stadium, a non-stop reality show around him at all times the quarterback with the heaviest weight to carry is Tony Romo.

No More Excuses, Romo

Tony Romo better take Dallas deep into the playoffs or risk getting stamped the A-Rod of football.

May 4 Winner: SPORTTC

He should do what he wants. If he still wants to play, then play. If not, then find something else. I believe that's how it used to work in this country.

A Helpless Hurt

We understand that the chief motivator here may just be love of the game. But we love the game too, and we don't want to see you trip in the outfield. Again.

"I'll Hold the Ball, and You Kick It!"

Hearing about Favre coming back to the NFL makes me feel like Charlie Brown being abused by Lucy.

Don't Board Viking Ship

Brett, for the sake of your legendary status in Green Bay, please don't turn the Lambeau Leap into the Metrodome Mount.

A Comeback in Non-Sequential Bills, Please

We've seen this show before. And each time we see it again it gets more predicable and that little part of us rooting for the robber wanes.

Hamlet Worth the Drama

Let's all urge Favre to come back for the Vikings, so we can enjoy the best in reality TV.

By Gene Wang | May 4, 2009; 6:02 AM ET | Comments (3)

Let It Go, Brett

After all the hype and fanfare, Favre's comeback would not be poignant or heroic. It would be like "Rocky" ... "Rocky 6."
