D.C. reunion a possibility

Terrell Owens can campaign all he wants, but it will take a desperate team short on wide receiver talent to agree to sign the 36-year-old malcontent.

Slippery slope

By issuing suspensions to players who have not been charged with crimes, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is in danger of becoming Big Brother

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.

A question of where, not if

LaDainian Tomlinson should land somewhere in 2010, the only question is where.

It's in LT's hands

This could be LaDainian Tomlinson's best shot at a Super Bowl, but first he must accept a reduced role.

Right place for new start

Given Ozzie Newsome's track record, I'll give the Ravens the benefit of the doubt and assume that the Stallworth signing will help the Ravens get to the next level.

Potentially cursed?

The Ravens will settle for good, not great. In fact, they'll be very happy if he even approaches Mason.

Is Shanahan right for the job?

Will Redskins coach and vice president of football operations Bill Shanahan be able to turn the team around.

Patriots and Colts as rivals? Please! Maybe friendly rivals.

Harmony is key

Having a strong general manager and a strong head coach who can gel is how you win a Super Bowl.

Does it matter?

The Browns are so messed up that they will be nearly impossible to fix anyway.

Owner is king

The most critical person is the one who hires the coach and GM.

GM trumps coach

Control over personnel is the overwhelming key to any team's success or failure.

GM has it easier

Put Belichick back in a Browns hoodie and he'd be lucky to go 5-11 again.

Strange Happenings This Season

More than one-third of the league is unbeaten or winless a quarter of the way into the season. That's not normal for the NFL.

All About Quarterbacks

The reason for the wide disparity in winning teams and losing ones comes down to one thing: quarterback play.

Not So Shocking

If there are still a few undefeated teams at week 12, or a few winless teams then, we can talk then.

NFL Cap and Switch

Young, impotent coaches and a non-meritocratic salary cap are pushing NFL parity towards oblivion.

It is not a coincidence that there are zero winless teams on the West Coast or in the Northeast.

Cleveland is well on its way to being an 0-16 team.

Fail to the Chiefs

With each passing week, it's looking like the Chiefs' January 3rd trip to Mile High might be a battle -- a battle to go 1-15.

Have to Score to Win, Cleveland

Do I think any teams will go 0-16 this year? No. If I had to pick though, I'm sad to say my Browns look like the best bet

Torture on the Cuyahoga

The Brown's offense has scored one garbage time touchdown in their last eight NFL games. Isn't touchdown deprivation against the Geneva Convention?

NFL Doesn't Help Books

The League could always do better job but I don't believe the NFL is interested in accommodating sports books or any Fantasy Leagues.

Play It Safe

Maybe it is better to only play those players who can do so without pain or potential for re-injury.

Hiding Behind HIPAA

The NFL and individual teams manipulate the injury report policy for their own benefit, then hide behind HIPAA.

He's Not a Murderer

Donte Stallworth drove with a buzz on, which makes him a criminal, of which the NFL has plenty already.

Not Fit for the NFL

How as a fan am I supposed to root for a guy like Donte Stallworth again?

Not Michael Vick

Let's stop comparing this incident to the Michael Vick case, and please let's stop putting this situation in the same window of everything else that goes wrong in the "failed moral behavior of athletes" category.

Consistent Punishment

If Roger Goodell is going to drop a hammer on Stallworth then he has to act equally as strong against every other NFL player who is arrested for a DUI.

By Les Carpenter | June 19, 2009; 12:23 PM ET | Comments (8)

Rosenhaus Responsible?

"Suspended indefinitely" certainly does not mean "banned for life" and Stallworth can expect to have a chance to return to football at some point.

Goodell Should Channel Judge Landis

If the Ginger Hammer wants to prove there's a new sheriff in town, he must punish more adequately than the justice system has.

Goodell Went Too Far

The NFL commissioner has pushed the punitive bar too high, to the point of inappropriate excessive.

Goodell Will Be Fair

Once Goodell has reviewed all the facts we fully anticipate a just resolution

Goodell Must Be Tough

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.
