  1. I think the “feel good” about Incognito comes from people having long memories, and this guy saying and doing the right things to atone for his past issues, whether they were real or perceived. If he slips again, he’s TOAST. But if he stays a solid citizen, it’s a great redemption story.

  2. Incognito shouldn’t even be in te league–period;

    he could save half a dozen kids and their mother from an overturned van on fire at the edge of a river down a cliff and it wouldn’t matter;

    the fact that he not only is but is being touted as some kind of supposed “feel-good story” by the league only further underscores the NFL tacit approval of the kind of behaviour in the recent Bengals-Steelers game Incognito’s recent past only mirrors;

    no other place of employment on this Earth–save the cleveland and Ferguson and NY PDs–not even MLB, would’ve tolerated his behaviour, let alone re-hired him;

    this is not at all the NFL i was once a fan of…

  3. Incognito deserves some love after what the media did to him in Miami. His teammates never turned on him because they don’t think he did anything wrong. Unfortunately, the front office caved to the media hysteria and drove him out of town, leaving the ‘Fins with no guards and another crappy season. Well, done, Dolphins, well done!
