Some football teams can fall far behind in a game, and come back to win. There are other teams—even good teams—that don't have that capacity.
If NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was a football team, he would be one of those latter types of teams.
I saw most of his press conference this afternoon.
Rhetorically, Goodell runs the ball. He plays it safe. He doesn't throw long. He leans on his defense. He relies on size. He's neither speedy or agile. He's not a guy who can score a lot of points in a hurry.
If Goodell is going to win this one, everything has to go right from here on out. And the way things have been going, that's not the way to bet.
Based on Goodell's wooden performance today, I predict he won't be commissioner of the NFL a year from now.
What's the line on that in Vegas?
