  2. DALLAS COWBOYS SIGN AFL STANDOUT GREISEN 12/28/2010 10:21 AM TULSA, Okla. – After winning the 2010 Arena Football League’s Russell Offensive Player of the Year and leading the Florida Tuskers of the UFL to a Championship, Quarterback Chris Greisenwas signed to the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys (NFL). “Chris has been a good quarterback at every level he has played. He has displayed a high level of success through his collegiate career to be a draft pick in the NFL, through his AFL career,and most recently, in the UFL. He is a smart player that should be able to grasp the offense if he is needed,” Cowboys Director of Pro Scouting and Former Dallas Desperadoes Head Coach Will McClay said. Greisen finished the 2010 AFL season with the Milwaukee Iron ranking first in total offense (5,156-yards), total passing (5,146-yards) and pass efficiency (.679). Following the season, Greisen signed to the Florida Tuskers. Greisen spent five seasons in the AFL (2005-10), two in the UFL (2009-10), one in the af2 (2004), and one in NFL Europe (2003). The Arizona Cardinals drafted Greisen in the seventh round of the 1999 NFL Draft. From 1999-01, Greisen was a member of the Cardinals and completed 7-of-16 passes for 69-yards and one touchdown in spot duty. In 2002, Greisen was released after training camp and signed to the Washington Redskins.
  3. 2006: ArenaBowl XX champions In 2006, despite their first losing record of 7-9, the Rush got into the playoffs, receiving the #5 seed in the American Conference. In the playoffs, the Rush managed to pull off key upsets. In the Wild Card Round, the Rush defeated the fourth-seeded Nashville Kats 55-47. In the Divisional Round, Chicago managed to pull off a huge upset by taking down the defending champion Colorado Crush, 63-46. In the Conference Championship they upset the second-seeded San Jose SaberCats 59-56, giving the Rush their very first ArenaBowl appearance in franchise history. In ArenaBowl XX, the Rush defeated the Orlando Predators, 69-61, to give Chicago their first Arena Bowl title. Quarterback Matt D'Orazio was Offensive Player of the Game, wide receiver/defensive back Dennison Robinson took Defensive Player of the Game honors, and fullback/linebacker Bob McMillen was named the Ironman of the Game. With the win, the Rush became the first team with a losing regular-season record to win a championship in any sport since the 1937-38 Chicago Blackhawks.
  4. They’ve peeled the tarp off the floor of Soldier Field, revealing the grass field that’s in fairly good shape for the Jets-Bears game that’s about to be played on it. Snow fell lightly in the neighborhood last night, leaving some thin residue here and there in the proud stadium on the shores of Lake Michigan, but except for a few flurries, it’s expected only cloudy, cold (30 degrees) and gusty (13-26 mph winds) in the Windy City. It’s not like the weather back home at the moment, just your normal welcome to Chicago. The 10-4 Jets want to wrap up a playoff berth today and avoid a win-and-they’re-in scenario next week at home against Buffalo. They can do that by beating the 10-4 Bears or by a Jaguars home loss to Washington (1 p.m. ET kickoff) or a Colts road loss in Oakland (4:05 kickoff). They’ll take any of the three, but a win over the brawny Bears would be the most satisfying. But the Bears, who have already clinched an NFC playoff berth, still want to nail down their conference’s No. 2 seed, so they’ve got a bit to play for as well. And their fearsome front seven will want to get after Mark Sanchez. The Jets QB suffered a sore right shoulder on a hard takedown sack by James Farrior late in the first quarter of the win at Pittsburgh. He was limited in practice all three days this week but he finally threw well on Friday and head coach Rex Ryan proclaimed him probable for today’s game. Sanchez has not yet come out to warm up, while backups Mark Brunell and Kellen Clemens have. Does that mean anything? We’ll let you know how Sanchez looks when the full team comes out. Update: 12:10 p.m.: Sanchez jogged out onto the field with Brunell and Clemens at 12:07 ET, jogged the length of the field and half of it back. He was flexing and rotating his shoulder, nothing extreme, and is now soft-tossing with Braylon Edwards along the Jets’ sideline. His motion seems fine. Inactives The Jets inactives today are S Eric Smith, LB Jamaal Westerman, T Damien Woody, DT Jarron Gilbert, TE Jeff Cumberland, DT Trevor Pryce and DL Matt Kroul. Dwight Lowery will get his second start at safety in place of Smith, who made progress in practice this past week but is still sidelined with a concussion. The Bears inactives: S Craig Steltz, CB Joshua Moore, RB Kahlil Bell, G Herman Johnson, OL Edwin Williams, TE Desmond Clark and DT Marcus Harrison. Caleb Hanie has been designated the third QB. Starting SLB Pisa Tinoisamoa is active but has been replaced in the starting lineup by Nick Roach. Gameday Captains Ryan’s gameday captains are CB Marquice Cole, G Brandon Moore, DT Sione Pouha, FB Tony Richardson and RB LaDainian Tomlinson.

  10. As the days in 2010 dwindle to a precious few, so do the playoff scenarios. And the Jets’ win at Pittsburgh did a world of good in minimizing the amount of things that will keep the Green & White out of their second consecutive postseason grid under head coach Rex Ryan. Specifically, there are three simple scenarios under which the Jets clinch a berth: Scenario 1 — Jets win (or tie) at Chicago at 1 p.m. ET. The Jets would then rise to 11-4. No other wild-card challenger could then catch them at 11-5 and bump them via tiebreakers. Or … Scenario 2 — Jaguars lose (or tie) at home to Washington at 1 p.m. ET. This outcome would be helpful, if the Jets stumble at Soldier Field, because Jacksonville is the only team that could catch the Jets for the last AFC Wild Card berth. That would happen thus: If both the Colts and Jags win out to finish at 10-6, the Colts win the AFC South. And assuming a Jets win at Chicago and loss to Buffalo, then both the Jets and Jags would be 8-4 in the conference and Jacksonville would edge the Jets on records against common opponents (4-0 to the Jets’ 4-1, with the loss being that assumed L to the Bills on Jan. 2). Or … Scenario 3 — Colts lose (or tie) at Oakland at 4:05 p.m. ET. If Indy loses, this guarantees that the AFC South runnerup will have at least seven losses, either the Colts or, if both IND and JAX finish tied at 9-7, the Jags. The AFC West is not a factor for the Jets. Even if they finish 10-6, they would edge Kansas City at 10-6 based on conference record (8-4 to the Chiefs’ 6-6). If KC won both of its games to go 11-5 and SD won both of its games to go 10-6, the Jets and SD would be even in conference (8-4 each), common opponents (4-1 each) and strength of victory. But the SOV calculation assumes the teams the Jets defeated finishing with the worst possible records and the teams the Chargers beat finishing with the best. If that were to happen, both the Jets and Chargers’ SOV would be even at 64-96. But it’s not going to happen. And if it did, the Jets would still squeak out the spot based on the next tiebreaker, strength of schedule. But as always, it’s best not to rely on the tiebreakers. No loss of confidence in the locker room, no demeaning media and fan talk about backing in. For the Jets on the day after Christmas in Chicago, the best advice is: Just win(d), baby. Jaguars Play at 1 Colts Play at 4
  11. Something else in the Jets’ favor today in their major climb is the state of the Steelers’ health. Their inactive list has just been distributed here in the pressbox and as rumored for a few days, S Troy Polamalu and TE Heath Miller have both been deactivated. The loss of each is a small blow to a Pittsburgh side that is not only trying to extend its hex over the visitor from the East but also is trying to keep ahead of another Eastern Seaboard team, the Ravens, in the battle for the AFC North title and a possible wild-card bye week. Lastly is the Jets’ own sense of well-being. They were feeling good about themselves and their postseason chances until suffering difficult division setbacks at New England and home against Miami. But they have talent and today we will see if they have what it takes to get up, dust themselves off, end their multiple schneids and get back into the thick of the postseason conversation. Inactives The Jets’ inactive list today: S Eric Smith, LB Jamaal Westerman, T Damien Woody, TE Jeff Cumberland and D-linemen Jarron Gilbert, Trevor Pryce and Matt Kroul. Kellen Clemens again is the third QB. Besides Polamalu and Miller, the Steelers’ inactives include CB Keenan Lewis, RB Jonathan Dwyer, T Chris Scott, DT Steve McLendon and DE Aaron Smith, with Charlie Batch designated as the third QB behind Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich. Ryan Mundy gets the start at SS for Polamalu, Matt Spaeth at TE for Miller
