I think he should be allowed to play, but only under an assumed name.

If a team picks this PR disaster up, it will probably be Philadelphia.  They've proved to be "tin-eared" in the past to player character issues.

I enjoy MMQB and Peter's written articles, but I don't enjoy his video segments - they are simply opportunities for advertising dollars with little meaningful information. Too much time consumed with little benefit. I understand Peter wanting to explore new media innovations, but this video has crystallized a growing dissatisfaction with his videos. So from now on, I'm simply going to pass on his videos.

Of course Incognito will play in the NFL this year Peter. Since he has no morals, he will be snatched up by the morally corrupt NE Patriots with Belicheat leading the way.....If it doesn't work out, they have a spare bunk in Hernandez's cell he can use....

I don't like videos either. The page said s.I. writers, that is what I expected. I don't want to watch a commercial, followed by a video, unless that is how your writing your stories now.

Wonder if Peter wrote a script before he talked on this video...wouldn't that be ironic.



Echoing the comments on this thread.  Please pass on the video.

Maybe the Jets will sign him. With the signing of the sociopath Vick they have demonstrated they have no moral compass.

Gotta agree with the majority of comments here, I was expecting a written article and not a video so I passed. Not sure what it says about me but I'm kind of disappointed, don't really care for the video stuff. Just my ridiculously worthless 2 cents! lol

Please put a camera icon for video articles. I hate bait and switch garbage sites like ESPN and CNN do, which is why I quit bothering to go to those sites

Please provide a transcript...if I wanted video I'd go to espn's rubbish website.  Some of us still prefer reading.  Watching people talk....ugh.  Is it okay for me to type this comment or should I get my webcam and make a video.  I mean how will you understand this sans video?

I think Richie's fallen outta' the top-ten, "NFL topics," this is.  Maybe that's just wishful thinking.

@BillRobinson Agreed.  I stopped clicking on the videos as they simply are more likely to disappoint than not.

@Buck2185 Wait, Incognito murdered someone?  I hadn't heard - can you post the link please?

@Buck2185 Who is Belicheat?  I thought their coach had a different name...

@WilyCoyoteSuperGenius  He killed dogs not humans.  A sociopath doesn't care about humans.  Vick is a convicted criminal and a bad person but not a sociopath.  Aaron Hernandez is a sociopath.

You understand this is a video, right?

@89RedSox @Buck2185 It's something people write because they think they're clever, not realizing that they're just copying the same old tired cliche that's been floating around for 10 years. Apparently it makes people feel manly or something to drop an old joke on someone.

@Chris10 @WilyCoyoteSuperGenius   And Vick went to jail, did his time. I wish he'd had a little suspension on top of it. Don't tell me he had a two-year suspension – that coincided with his prison term. He never missed a day when he was available to play. As far as Incognito, I don't think we need a fancy psychological term. He's just an jerk.

@scowsa @MikeHarrison  not on the SI page there isn't.  this thing was lumped in with other written articles with no sign that it was a video

Thank you Chris. Even today, on the homepage, there is NOTHING to denote that this is a video post. That's all I want, something on the homepage that shows it's a video post.

They have it for the news column on the right, so why not for the MMQB section?
