Here’s what else is on tap Thursday:

  • Speaking of Ward, he was of course a guest in studio last night, and he also stopped by for a live chat. In that chat, he was asked if he’d rather get into coaching or broadcasting after his playing days are over. Ward was not on the fence with his answer. You can check it out here.
  • You can also find a few video clips on from Ward’s appearance on “NFL Total Access,” including his breakdown of the game’s top wideouts.
  • We mentioned yesterday that it’s time to brush up on your fantasy knowledge for the 2011 season. Fantasy guru Michael Fabiano checks in with this week’s fantasy mailbag, which leads with his high expectations for Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles.
  • If it’s Thursday, it’s also time for another chance for fans to help program NFL Network. Here’s your chance to vote for which episode of “America’s Game” airs next Saturday. Vote early and often!
  • Speaking of voting, the home page poll on asks you where Plaxico Burress will be playing in 2011. As of early this morning, only 9 percent of voters think he’ll return to the Giants. Leading the way is Philadelphia -– 45 percent of you think the Eagles will land Burress. Agree or disagree? Get your vote in now.
  • NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora stopped by for his weekly chat yesterday, and he was asked about the rebuilding plans for the Washington Redskins and the future of troubled Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth. La Canfora had some specific thoughts on the matter, which you can read here.
  • That said, La Canfora did not have specific thoughts when asked to name his top contenders for Super Bowl XLVI. So he promised to mull it over, and he will have a detailed breakdown on later today.
  • And speaking of chats, today’s will feature analyst and co-host of the Cover Two Podcast, Bucky Brooks, who will be chatting at 2 p.m. ET. Submit a question now.
