Chargers’ Cromartie To Packers: Only If Price Is Right

Antonio Cromartie

The San Diego Chargers need a running back. LaDanian Tomlinson, who will turn 31 in June, is likely to be released by the team after gaining only 730 yards and averaging 3.3 yards per carry in 2009.

McCarthy Coach of the Year Candidate?

Mike McCarthy

Those are the last words I ever thought I’d write in this space, but it appears, at least in some circles, that Green Bay Packers boss Mike McCarthy is a legitimate candidate for the NFL’s coach of the year.
