If you were Sam Bradford, and you had other options, would you want to come back to the Eagles? I might. If you were Sam Bradford, and you had other options, would you want to come back to the Eagles? It would depend a lot on the options, which are hard to evaluate right now. If the Houston Texans, who have DeAndre Hopkins, Bill O'Brien and J.J. Watt, would like to pay me the market rate for a starting quarterback, and the Eagles' aren't gonna franchise me, then hasta la vista, Haddonfield, N.J., point me to the correct exit off Houston's Southeast Freeway for River Oaks.

ISSUE | MENTAL HEALTH Profile in courage Penn State junior Caroline Crasnick is a marvelous young woman to have the guts to speak openly about her bipolar disorder and a sexual assault by a male student in her freshman year ("On campus, going public with private pain," Monday). Too bad that male student and others like him do not have the courage of Crasnick and the other female students who have told their stories in campus media. The men should man up, admit their offenses, and deal with the consequences of their bullying behavior.

The Inquirer, the Daily News, and Philly.com have had occasion over the past decade to try out a wide array of what are politely termed "ownership models," from publicly traded corporations to vulture capitalists to political power brokers. For all their diverse approaches and agendas, these many masters have consistently reduced the company's complement of journalists and often brought about turmoil and uncertainty. H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest's newly announced transfer of the company to a nonprofit foundation holds tremendous promise in light of this dark recent history - not only to end the endless ownership shuffle, but also to prevent further deterioration of the company's power to produce independent, responsible, robust journalism, as well as position it to keep doing so in a rapidly changing business.
