Who's the Boss?
Peter King

Given the way the NFL usually plods along, there's been some skepticism that the league's owners will be able to decide on a successor to outgoing commissioner Paul Tagliabue before the start of the 2006 season. But one source close to the league's eight-man search committee, which narrowed the field to 11 candidates on Monday, is confident that a decision will be reached by the end of the Aug. 7--9 owners meeting in Chicago. (The strong front-runner remains NFL chief operating officer Roger Goodell.) Whatever the case, Tagliabue has let it be known within league circles that he and his wife, Chan, have planned a trip to India in early fall, a not-so-subtle hint that the owners better get the job done soon.
