Recently we have often been asked: What if your daughter had been in Janay Rice's shoes, wouldn't you demand stern justice? As the mother of a daughter, the answer is that of course I would. However, I am also the mother of a son. Why don't we hear the question: What if your son had been in Ray Rice's shoes? If my son had been in that position, I would demand stern justice as well. However, I would demand justice to be rational and consider that - by all accounts - there had been no pattern of abuse and that, also certainly relevant, there had been a long-time and consistent pattern of exemplary community service and outreach by Mr. Rice.

America, it's time to call it quits on the witch hunts. As my husband wrote on Facebook recently, more people have spent way more time hating Ray Rice than they have spent hating the ISIS folks who beheaded two innocent American sons ( "NFL investigation into Ray Rice video raises more questions ," Sept. 11). If it weren't for an elevator camera, no one would know about this particular bit of human ugliness between Ray and his wife. I can tell you right now that I thank heaven for the lack of elevator cameras in some of my moments in life.

Who slipped the "flawed Ray Rice" pills to Sun sports writer Mike Preston ( "The fall has come quickly for Rice," Feb. 17)? Mr. Rice and his fiance were apparently involved in a situation at a casino where slaps were traded, but the couple left the casino together. The way Mr. Preston worded it, Mr. Rice has morphed into quite the nasty monster. While I believe that striking the fairer sex is never acceptable, I also feel Mr. Preston is being particularly scathing in his assessment of Mr. Rice.

In his first public comments since his February arrest following a physical altercation with his now wife, Ravens running back Ray Rice apologized to fans Friday. But most sports columnists felt that Rice should also be sorry for his awkward apology. Eric Edholm, Shutdown Corner blog, Yahoo!

Ray Rice was in elementary school the first time he sat down in front of a chess set. He was 9-years-old. His fifth grade teacher, Calvin Heyward, believed this small boy from New Rochelle, N.Y., was capable of great things, but Rice - whose motor never stopped running - needed structure. He needed guidance. He had a wonderful mother at home, Janet, and she worked tirelessly to provide for her family all by herself after Rice's father was killed in a drive-by shooting when Rice was just a year old. But even a woman as strong as Janet Rice could not make her son sit still for long stretches.

Ray Rice was one of three Ravens who took a break from the team's offseason workout program Tuesday to chat with reporters. He appeared to be wearing black pajama pants, so maybe a nap was next on his agenda. Before he took off, he was asked about Torrey Smith, who is expected to be the team's top receiver in 2013. In his second NFL season, Smith caught 49 passes for 855 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns. His 17.4 yards-per-catch average was among the highest in the league in 2012.

Looking back at it three and a half years later, the 2008 NFL draft produced a strong crop of running backs. Darren McFadden, Matt Forte, Rashard Mendenhall and Jamaal Charles are all starters now. Jonathan Stewart, Tim Hightower, Felix Jones, Tashard Choice and Steve Slaton have each had their moments. And then there are Ray Rice and Chris Johnson, two of the very best runners in the NFL, whose skills will be on display Sunday afternoon when the Ravens travel to Nashville to take on theTennesseeTitans.

A lack of big plays in 2010 prompted the Ravens to overhaul their passing attack (again) this offseason. They cut ties with veterans Derrick Mason, Todd Heap and T.J. Houshmandazeh; brought in speedy veteran wide receiver Lee Evans; drafted a pair of rookie wideouts in Torrey Smith and Tandon Doss; and went with youth at tight end, where second-year players Ed Dickson and Ed Pitta have both spent time with the first-team offense. But the absence of explosiveness wasn't limited to the passing game.

While Ray Rice deferred the final decision to coach John Harbaugh, the Ravens running back said he is healthy enough to play in Sunday's AFC North showdown at the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rice continued to show no sign of a limp in the locker room and practiced for the first time since sustaining a contusion on his right knee. "I feel great," Rice said in his first comments to reporters since injuring his knee Sunday. "I'm sure I'll be ready to play. " Rice is the only player to gain over 100 yards rushing against Pittsburgh in 38 games.
