First and 10: Oprah, Favre and Arnold … oh, my!

That’s right, no reason why we here at shouldn’t join the rest of the free world in paying tribute to Oprah Winfrey as she celebrated the end of her talk show this week. In the 25 years, she’s had all kinds of guests on her show, and Oprah even talked to the occasional football player. So Football Friday seems like the perfect time to offer up a photo essay chronicling some notable NFL appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

Here’s what else is on tap today:

  • It’s a bonus photo essay day, and you’ll enjoy this one: NFL lookalikes. Tom Brady and Justin Bieber? Charlie Whitehurst and Barry Gibb? Ed Hochuli and Arnold Schwarzenegger? The photos don’t lie, folks.
  • In Game No. 11 on our list of the Top 20 Games of 2010, the Ravens edged the Texans on a Monday night. But as Elliot Harrison explains, he actually looked at this battle as a win for Houston.
  • Last week,’s Pat Kirwan stated his case for why Eli Manning was robbed when left off the NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2011 list. Today, speculating that it looks as if LeSean McCoy might not make the cut, he states his case for the Eagles running back.
  • Really only two words needed to tell you what this is all about: Favre Watch.
  • It’s Football Friday, and that means it is time to chat with’s Vic Carucci at noon ET. Submit a question now.
