Should Condoleezza Rice be NFL Commissioner?

It was reported that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice under consideration for the open Cleveland Browns head coaching position. While both sides have downplayed the rumor, Rice's level of leadership has many fans thinking she can run the NFL better than Roger Goodell. If she can manage the Department of State, the NFL should be a piece of cake. Others think the NFL is a completely different monster that she would have trouble controlling. What do you think?

No one should take the Condoleezza Rice-Browns rumors seriously. Not because it's out of the realm of possibility, but because being a head coach is beneath her. If anything, her experience managing high-stakes negotiations and managing overblown egos in the federal government would make her perfect for the NFL Commissioner position. Here is Roxanne Jones of CNN with more:

Here's a woman who sat on the National Security Council as director of Soviet and East European Affairs -- in the Cold War '80s. She was George W. Bush's national security adviser, then his secretary of state for four years. She's brokered Middle East peace deals and ceasefires, stared down drug lords and terrorists, expanded democracy around the globe.

It's ridiculous, and the epitome of chauvinism, to question whether a woman of her caliber could handle leading a team of 53 men in tights to win football games.

Hey, remember when Condoleezza Rice oversaw one of the worst boondoggles in American history with the war in Iraq, was accused of lying about the pretenses behind that decision and was generally a polarizing Secretary of State? While the current state of the NFL might welcome that kind of failure, they should look to move in another direction. Let's not reward someone for doing a bad job. Condoleezza Rice should stay out of the NFL.
