Roger Goodell needs to publicly take the heat if he expects redemption for himself and league, Tim Keown writes.
There's simply no justification for Adrian Peterson's behavior or the Vikings' decision to reinstate him, Tim Keown writes.
Apparently, it takes a special kind of person to make it as a head coach in the NFL. Does Mike Shanahan have a secret ingredient that Wade Phillips and Brad Childress don't?
Mr. Childress, sir, you are Brett Favre's supervisor. You are the one who decides who plays and who doesn't, and if you don't want interceptions, you're free to start someone else.
To put it bluntly, the NFL is no place for a 40-year-old Brett Favre with a balky ankle and an ego that makes him believe he no longer needs to train year-round.
Brad Childress cast his lot with Brett Favre this past summer, and it's too late for do-overs, even if the time is right for a change at quarterback.
The circus of indecisiveness that Brett Favre created has finally moved him into the realm of the irrelevant.
The NFL should take a page from the NBA's code of conduct before it's too late.
Why is everybody so excited about the Vikings? Because they are this year's trendy preseason pick. Happens every year.
