Whicker: NFL isn’t broken, but here’s how to fix it

We’re told millions of Americans swore off the NFL this season.

A mid-morning attempt to find a parking place at any grocery store Sunday indicated those disgruntled folks have been replaced.

So did the hand-fighting along the shelves, although most offenders claimed they were going for the chips and the contact was incidental.

Brace for doom-and-gloom over Super Bowl ratings, which receded by three percent from last year. Actually the game drew 95.17 million viewers. The next highest-rated show, from 7-10 p.m. Sunday, was “60 Minutes,” with 3.05 million.

The NFL tried to goose the excitement with an unannounced Super Bowl ban on

Tennessee has not announced its full list of candidates, or when interviews will be completed.

LaFleur, 38, just completed his first year as an NFL coordinator. He was credited with helping quarterback Jared Goff

NFL playoffs preview: AFC and NFC championship game predictions, TV info, analysis

LAST WEEK AGAINST THE SPREAD: 2-2

PLAYOFF RECORD: 3-5

FINAL REGULAR SEASON RECORD: 120-126-7

JACKSONVILLE AT NEW ENGLAND

Kickoff: 12:05 p.m.

TV: KCBS, Ch. 2

Outlook: Blake Bortles is one step away from a Super Bowl. Just like we all predicted. The only obstacle standing in the way of him and the upstart Jaguars is the greatest postseason quarterback of all time, the greatest postseason coach of all time, and the rest of the New England Patriots. No sweat, right? It may seem like an impossible task on the surface, but there’s precedent for a team like the Jaguars giving the Patriots issues. The Jets and

Rams special teams genius John Fassel may hold keys to playoff success

Thirteen years before he was handed the reins of an NFL franchise in the final weeks of a failed season, John Fassel was given his first and only other chance as a head coach. It was decidedly less glamorous.

New Mexico Highlands University sits in the dusty foothills of the Rockies, in the small, ironically named town of Las Vegas, New Mexico. The campus is “basically out in the boondocks,” Fassel recalls, the polar opposite of its glitzy Nevada counterpart. But when Fassel was hired as head coach in 2003, he didn’t mind. He was wide-eyed, 30-year-old, just beginning his

Photos: Rams go to 8-3 with home victory over Saints

Redskins top Giants in lackluster Thanksgiving win

Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes to compensate for a pick-6, and the Washington Redskins beat the New York Giants 20-10 on Thursday night on a drab field in a drab game between two injury-depleted teams that did not look ready for prime time.

The two NFC East rivals combined for more punts (nine) than points (six) in the first half, which ended 3-all on a pair of short field goals — from 30 yards by New York’s Aldrick Rosas, and 28 by Washington’s Nick Rose. The big play on Washington’s lone scoring “drive” of the half? A 37-yard flag

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn thinks it’s ‘an honor’ to play on Thanksgiving

COSTA MESA — Anthony Lynn has been a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams, moments that he still claims as the highlights of his football career.

His third-most memorable game might have happened on Nov. 22, 2001.

The Chargers head coach was in his second season as a Denver special teams assistant when the Broncos visited Dallas on Thanksgiving – a game the Cowboys nearly stole thanks to three touchdowns in the final nine minutes .

This Thursday, Lynn will be back in the city again for a holiday kickoff at 1:30 p.m. This time, he’ll face the Cowboys as his Chargers
