Goodell had to do something

It's hard to find a fitting punishment when the full extent of the offense remains unknown, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had to take action against Ben Roethlisberger and the four-to-six game suspension is about the best he could do.

Moral vs. criminal code

Roger Goodell's decision to suspend Ben Roethlisberger for six games protects the integrity of the NFL's moral standards without overstepping his bounds as commissioner.

Not about the number

It's not the length of the suspension dolled out to Ben Roethlisberger that matters. It's how he uses that time to recoup his image and grow up.

Crap shoot at QB

Taking a quarterback at No. 1 is a crap shoot, but if the St. Louis Rams select Sam Bradford, I'm not going to argue.

Make it Suh

The Rams may have their sights set on quarterback Sam Bradford with their No. 1 pick, but Ndamukong Suh provides just as much talent and possibly a bigger pay off in the long run.

It's a QB league

If the Rams see Sam Bradford as a potential franchise quarterback, they've already made their decision.
