Top 5 NFL teams in desperate need of a Christmas miracle

The holidays are a magical time of the year. Families come together, communities help the needy, and almost anything is possible. Including miracles. Several NFL teams are in need of such a miracle, whether for a playoff run or long-term future of their franchise. Here’s a run-down of which NFL teams are in need of a little magic this holiday season:

7 NFL players and coaches in need of a Christmas vacation

Much like Clark Griswald in the holiday classic, Christmas Vacation, many NFL players and coaches are in need of a few relaxing days all to themselves (and that Christmas bonus!).

And probably a large glass of egg nog.

Live from Tahoe: Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt itching for camp, talks joint practices

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt has spent the last couple days in Lake Tahoe, playing practice rounds for the tournament that begins tomorrow. He’s been chill and relaxed, talking with fans and hitting the ball well. But if it looks like his mind isn’t on football, well, that’s not reality. Whisenhunt told me this placid demeanor is kind of a facade. Football is most certainly whirling around in his noggin. He’s amped. “There’s not much on golf,” Whisenhunt told me. “I mean, this is a great event, it’s a lot of fun. For a guy that can’t play football anymore, it’s great to compete in another arena. But I’m thinking about football. We got a lot of things coming up in […]

Three and out: Shonn Greene will get more carries

Happy Friday everybody! I know it was only a four-day week, but somehow it made me more ready for the weekend. That said, let’s hit the ground running here. In the Greene: Sometimes I just can’t help myself with some guys and I draft them when I probably shouldn’t. That said, I’m excited about Shonn Greene this year for the Jets. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano told reporters Greene was going to surpass 253 attempt this season. Which was already a lot. When you think about how Reggie Bush rebounded with Sparano in Miami, I’m excited about Greene this year. And with quarterbacks like Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, you can understand why the Jets will run the ball a lot […]

First and 10: Lockout ain’t over ’til it’s over

Reports of an imminent labor deal between NFL owners and players might have been exaggerated. Or maybe not. The players — or, more accurately, the NFLPA’s executive committee — are in Washington, where they could vote on a proposed labor deal Thursday. The owners are meeting in Atlanta, examining the deal on their end. Keeping it all straight for you are NFL Network reporter Albert Breer and NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.

Kirwan: Some deals might already be in place

In his weekly chat, senior analyst Pat Kirwan addressed a number of questions about what different teams might do when the free agency period gets started after the lockout ends. Kirwan said to expect things to happen almost immediately, because teams will already have spend significant time talking to agents.

USO tour ends with troops on Fourth of July

What better way to conclude the NFL Coaches USO Tour than by spending the Fourth of July with the troops.
