“The Eagles are the interesting ones (in the NFC East) because they’re the hardest to predict in my opinion. The other two (Washington, New York) are coming on. Are the Eagles dropping down? Or are they going up?” said Romo. “I’m worried about their offensive line. That’s a huge deal in the National Football League. That’s a very good division and I think you’re going to see that division hasn’t been as talented, the Eagles will go win, the Cowboys are really talented, but the other two haven’t been up in a long time.

In the last few years, domestic violence, deflated footballs, culturally insensitive mascots, and player safety have threatened to derail any positive stories coming from what’s happening on the field. It’s the NFL: There’s always something. The big story to keep an eye on, I’d wager, is the widespread sexual harassment in the Washington Football Team organization — a story that still hasn’t quite caught widespread traction outside of the world of sports but absolutely has the potential to. (And very much should.) The NFL has an owner in Daniel Snyder who has fostered a dangerously sexist workplace environment, discouraged a thorough investigation of his organization, and reportedly tried to coerce one of the team’s cheerleaders to go to a hotel room with one of his friends and one of the team’s financial investors. And yet he … [Read more...] about The NFL Is Returning To a Different World. Can It Adapt?
