Yes, yes, "It's a Wonderful Life" parodies are hackneyed and obvious. Stick around and I go completely off on the coaching history of the Cardinals.

Here's to the possibility we live in a slightly better universe than the one so eloquently described. A future where the Chargers do what they need to, and the 9ers don't, so the Seahawks may visit the cruel ghosts of playoffs past upon Saints.
Man, I know I haven't been following the Panthers that closely, but they're 13-1?! Talk about quiet success!
Every time a bell rings an independant certified athletic trainer calls a team doctor to cover the NFL's collective ass from any potential concussion-related liability. Also an angel gets its wings.
Great article but I'm pretty sure that Kirsty McColl died a few years ago, unless the Eli-Sanchise free universe somehow prevented her from being hit by a speedboat. It's entirely possible that Shane McGowan has been dead for a few year too, how could anyone tell?
"Correction: December 23, 2011
An earlier version of this post incorrectly listed the Carolina Panthers as having a record of 13-1."
Another alternate universe?
'Alex Smith often rolls his arms at the line of scrimmage in a peculiar gesture that suggests “false start” or “please wrap up this budget presentation.”'
One of new favorite Tanier lines.
Is that a diacritical tilde above the "T" in T.J. Yates's name? Olé!
Sorry to reply to myself, but it appears that T.J. Lang gets the same treatment. Perhaps we've identified an error in the N.Y.T.'s web layout, rather than an irrational expression of south-of-the-border exuberance over a rookie QB struggling to keep his head above water.
If Peyton Manning winds up as described, don't the Pats win the SB in 2006 as well?
The Bears do, and Rex Grossman is a superbowl winning QB.
I'm not sure I could live in such a universe.
Incidentally, one of the funniest Matchups in a long time.
Makin picks yonight so stuck around fireplace for jolly old tale s from Santa Raiderjoe
The Steelers aren't playing Leftwich because he went on IR in preseason. Dennis Dixon will take his spot on the single.
slrry ciuld not make earky pcks in time.
