First and 10: Barkley backs Packers for repeat

So we’ve been hanging out all week in Lake Tahoe at the celebrity golf tournament that’s chock full of NFL players (okay, “we” haven’t been there, but NFL Network cameras along with senior writer Steve Wyche have). And we’ve spoken to guys like Tim Tebow and Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo. But it’s not just football guys in attendance –- and you know it can’t be a legitimate celebrity golf tournament without the inimitable Charles Barkley. Then again, Barkley is a football guy — and he explains how in this video clip. He also talks about James Harrison, the lockout and even makes his Super Bowl picks for 2011.

But wait, there’s more! You can also catch a talkback with Barkley Friday night on “NFL Total Access” at 7 p.m. ET.

Here’s what else is on tap Friday:

  • It’s “Arena Football Friday” on NFL Network. With two games remaining in the regular season, the top two teams in the East Division of the American Conference face off tonight at 8 p.m ET. That, of course, means the first-place Cleveland Gladiators taking on the second-place Pittsburgh Power. But you knew that, didn’t you?
  • Get your football Friday rolling with a live chat with analyst Bucky Brooks, who will join us at 3 p.m. ET. Submit a question now.
