    Christmas is two days away. Have you finished your shopping yet? No? Well, what are you waiting for, man?! GET ON IT! Don’t you know that Christmas will be ruined and the world will collapse upon itself if you don’t run to the mall right now and fight off bloodthirsty tribes of suburbanites in order to procure a Suncoast Pictures gift card for your aunt? Don’t even deny it won’t happen, because it will.

    The holiday had me thinking about the NFL, and what certain coaches and players might have on their respective wishlists. Now, it isn’t easy to shop for NFL icons. They already have so much, including that platinum hot tub (three in Ocho’s house alone). So what do you get the NFL’s biggest names? I have a few ideas.

    DeSean Jackson – NFL field reduced to 99 yards in length

    Randy Moss – Gift certificate to Golden Corral

    Michael Vick – New puppy (NOTE: Designated for Christmas 2011 by order of a Federal Court)

    Donovan McNabb – 800-word Mike Wilbon column explaining how classy you are and very subtly hinting that race may have played a factor in your exit from Washington
