One of the headlines of the 2010 television season is the dominating nature of the National Football League. Bill Carter of the New York Times wrote about the subject last week, in which he gave these astounding stats:

“Of the 20 highest-rated telecasts of any kind so far this television season, 18 have been N.F.L. games on CBS, NBC or Fox. In terms of the best of 2010, nothing else comes close. Of the 50 highest-rated programs during the calendar year, 27 have been N.F.L. games, including 8 of the top 10.”

So as 2010 comes to a close and we look towards the 2011 PGA Tour season, it’s time for one last look at 2010, and my top 5 shots of 2010 in this week’s What It Means:

5. Jim Furyk’s Bunker Shot to Clinch the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup at East Lake: 18th hole, par 3, pouring rain, tee shot in the bunker, $11.35 million riding on the line. Easy circumstances, right? Not so fast. But off hard-packed sand he hit a sterling bunker shot to a couple feet, converted the par putt, and won it all — clinching PGA Tour Player of the Year in the process.

Really quick here — the defense played utterly atrocious on Sunday. If they don’t fix that, the Jets are going nowhere in the playoffs. That’s all you need to know about the loss to the Bears.

Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold (both starters), and D’Brickashaw Ferguson were named to the AFC Pro Bowl team today from the New York Jets.

One person that wasn’t: Brad Smith. The AFC Kickoff specialist: Marc Mariani. Who?

Thought so.

Protect Sanchez, establish the run, play tough defense, win the game, get in the playoffs. That’ll make me a very happy man. I say the Jets win.

Monmouth Head Coach Kevin Callahan will be the first to admit his team’s 3-8 season was frustrating. Callahan’s 18th season in charge was a turbulent one for the Hawks.

“I think from a won-loss record standpoint it was disappointing. We went into the season with much higher aspirations than 3-8,” Callahan said. “We thought we were going to be in a position to compete for the league championship and to compete for the automatic bid that goes along with it, and unfortunately that wasn’t the case. I will say that I am still very happy with the way our players continued to prepare and how hard they played despite the last couple of games we knew we weren’t going to be playing for a championship or anything like that.”

Monmouth was plagued by close losses all season long. Four of the team’s defeats came by one-point in 2010. Callahan looks to use the past season as a learning experience going forward for everyone involved.

“I think what we can do is to continue to coach to put yourself in a better position to win those tight games. And I think a lot of that comes from confidence, a lot of it comes from being in tight games and winning them. What I think you can try to develop is the mentality of mental toughness, and [when] we can get into those tight situations, you’re very confident that you’re going to win. We think that those things you can start to develop throughout the winter and the spring.”

Mark Sanchez’ ailing shoulder has made enough progress where he was throwing it well in practice and will start on Sunday for the Jets against the Bears, barring a setback, according to the NY Daily News. Rex Ryan announced that earlier today at Jets camp.

Needless to say, this is good news. Now just win the game and get into the playoffs so they can rest everyone next week.
