First and 10: Packers are presidential hopefuls

There’s not much the Green Bay Packers can do about the debt ceiling. Or is there? At the very least, the defending Super Bowl champs would like the chance to offer President Obama some suggestions in person. There’s an awful lot to do in short order now that the NFL lockout is over. The Packers would like to find just a little time to visit the White House, normally a rite of passage for all Super Bowl winners. But, as we said, there’s plenty to do and not enough time to do it. Stay tuned.

Here’s what else is on tap Tuesday:

  • In case you missed it amid all the end-of-lockout news yesterday, here’s what the NFL calendar looks like between now and Sept. 20.
  • Did we say things would happen fast? Sounds like the agents for first overall pick Cam Newton expect a very quick deal with the Carolina Panthers.
  • In case you missed this great story yesterday, both sides of the CBA battle paid tribute yesterday to Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who was such an important part of the negotiations even as his family was in crisis.
  • Look, we apologize in advance for this, but as long as Brett Favre is evenly remotely a topic of conversation, we’ve got to hit that.
