Why pick second best?

Diversity isn't celebrated in the NFL. Wins are, and each team should pursue that opportunity to win as it sees fit.

Diversity, a progress at work

For diversity initiatives to really succeed in the NFL and NCAA, a system must be in place to make sure underrepresented groups are not disproportionately excluded.

Synder cop-out?

Sadly, far too often team owners pick their man, add a token interview of a minority candidate to comply and never deviate from their first choice.

Trickle down equality

There is no doubt, in my mind, that many NFL teams treat the Rooney Rule as a formality but it still has value.

Think of Tomlin

Did the Redskins make a mockery of the Rooney Rule? Absolutely. Does that mean it should be abolished? Absolutely not.

Worth keeping

Until some ideal time, the NFL needs it. As it trickles down to the NCAA, so much the better.

You can't force equality

The Rooney Rule represents a great idea in terms of creating equality, but it does little in actuality.

Value in debate

Diversifying front offices is going to remain a slow, frustrating process, but at least the NFL has a process in place.

Take it slow, Brian

Let's hope for his sake, his future doesn't pay for his present.

By Anthony Stalter | December 16, 2009; 1:42 PM ET | Comments (0)

He will play

If every test shows he's putting himself at no greater risk, he ought to be allowed to write his own ending.

Be deliberate, Brian

Part of properly communicating a decision is about communicating the process that brought you to that decision.

Brian's choice

It's his career and his future, whatever he wants to make of it.

He's cleared, let him play

If the best neurologists in the world say he can play again, then I'm fine with him being out there.

By Jason Brewer | December 16, 2009; 11:15 AM ET | Comments (1)

His choice, but...

He has clearance and knows the risks than ultimately it's his choice... let's hope you makes the right one.

Brian, STOP!

Fame is fleeting, brain injuries are forever. I implore you, keep out of the game.

By Brent Boyd | December 16, 2009; 10:57 AM ET | Comments (1)

Know when to walk away, know when to run

I think the wise professional and medical recommendation would be for Brian Westbrook to call it quits this season.

A train wreck

Hopefully, Brian will decide when enough is enough, before he meets that ultimate wreck

Moss fails to lead

Randy Moss needs to remind himself nothing is to be taken for granted in the NFL.

By Roman Oben | December 15, 2009; 8:08 AM ET | Comments (1)

Give Moss a break

Great players, like Randy, need to dog it sometimes. That's price of all that talent.

By Keenan McCardell | December 14, 2009; 6:25 PM ET | Comments (8)

Superstar attitude

If he did quit, this is the first I've seen him regress to his me-first behavior since joining the Patriots.

Fair-weather Moss

Whether Moss likes it or not, whether it's true or not, fans believe that he only tries when things are going well.

By Doug Farrar | December 14, 2009; 9:49 AM ET | Comments (2)

It's Moss's M.O.

Did Moss dog it? Yes. Is it his fault the Patriots won't win the Super Bowl? No.

By Dave Goldberg | December 14, 2009; 9:40 AM ET | Comments (1)

Moss slowing Patriots?

Is receiver Randy Moss holding back the New England patriots?
