What do you want under your favorite NFL team's Christmas tree this season?
While it may be comical to picture Commissioner Roger Goodell, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones or even someone like New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork up on Santa's lap, some of their wish lists for this time of year might be even longer than Sally's from A Charlie Brown Christmas. With the playoffs and draft season just around the corner, it's time to separate the naughty from the nice.
For the league overall, health might be at the top of the list, as the aftermath of looking past the concussion issue continues. With expanded rosters and a closer eye on head injuries, it seems like every week has been more of a M*A*S*H unit than a football squad.
Lots of teams will be looking for a little help for their playoff chances and seeding in Week 17 as well. More will be looking for a few balls to bounce their way once those playoffs start. Others will be hoping their draft pick pans out or that a prized free agent decides to give them a discount.
One thing is for sure: No matter how many wins or successes each team had this season, 'tis the season for wanting, and there is much to be desired heading into the most important time of the year for each and every team.
