Spoiled for Choice

For me this question should read: Which falling star should you hitch your wagon to?

Image Is Everything

Matt Leinart and Vince Young are doing and saying enough of the right things to give coaches and fans a glimmer of hope

Leinart Has Less Baggage

Leinart is preferable to Young now, and only because of what's happened off the field.

Thanks, But No Thanks!

Given the choice between Leinart and Young, I'll choose Option C -- whatever that may be.

Is There a Third Choice?

By all accounts, Leinart just needs to grow up. Young may really need help.

Young Trumps Leinart

What's happened off the field is a push but Young beats him on numbers and talent.

Wilted Roses

To be perfectly blunt, is there is anyone drafted from the two powerhouses in 2006 that can consistently enjoy success in the NFL?

Depressing Conclusions

While it is accepted that cognitive and mood changes can result from head trauma, there is still great uncertainty within the medical field about how to define brain injury and even greater about how to treat it.

The NFL Ignored Us

Just as the tobacco companies fought like hell to deny links to cancer; the NFL is desperately, and corruptly, trying to deny liability for the carnage left behind by decades of head injuries.

We Didn't Know Any Better

In the 70's and 80's coaches didn't know any better -- players would get knocked out in the first quarter and be playing in the second.

Study Film, Damage Brain?

The league makes concussed players leave the field, but could studying tape the next day be just as dangerous?

Never Safe Enough

The NFL is doing what they need to do, but need to keep doing it, even after players retire.

Teams Keep Quiet When Players Have Their Bell Rung

The NFL has done a dismal job of identifying and treating one of the major post concussive symptoms, depression.

More Needs to Be Done

It is time for the football, from Pop Warner to the NFL, to make significant and drastic advances in the handling of concussions.

By Peter Schaffer | June 10, 2009; 8:33 AM ET | Comments (1)

Very Little Has Changed

Concussions need to be handled by an independent physician in as objective a manner as possible rather than a conflicted team staff.

Teach Your Children Well

A parent coaching football is no different than a parent coaching swimming.

A Doomed Court

Modern athletes shouldn't be like Babe Ruth, they should try to be like country musicians.

They're Doing The Time

I don't think they're treated differently at all. If they were, folks wouldn't be going to jail.

Are NFL Players Treated Differently by Our Legal System?

You decide if our legal system treats NFL players differently than everyone else

Players Get Gamed

Justice should be equal for all but we've now overcompensated to the point where celebs get a less fair shake.

A Walk and a Wink

Whether we like to admit it or not, there is a separate and unequal class of people who get away with things that the rest of us can't

By Doug Farrar | June 8, 2009; 7:06 AM ET | Comments (5)

June 8th Winner: OZPUNK

NFL players are certainly not above the law, but they are subject to a more lenient justice system because we the fans don't want to be disillusioned and are awfully quick to forgive.
