New Year’s Resolutions. You hate them. No one ever keeps them, and making them is a tiresome chore that reminds you every year that you are not the kind of person who follows through on things. It’s a horrible way to start any New Year. Ah, but what if those resolutions were to be made in a satirical manner about certain NFL figures and imbued with a healthy dose of mirth? MIGHT THAT BE AN IMPROVEMENT?!

Yes, it’s time for everyone in the NFL to sit down and write their New Year’s resolutions. So, without further ado, here are some of the more notable ones:

Roger Goodell: Dye hair brown. More people take you seriously if you’re a brunette

Josh McDaniels: Land coveted job at Radio Shack

Tim Tebow: Convince schedule-maker to have Broncos play Texans every week

Marvin Lewis: Retire to Acapulco, drink many drinks

Bill Belichick: Win fourth Super Bowl. Celebrate for six minutes by contorting mouth into straight line.

Peter King: Meditate.


The Metrodome: Explode

Chris Berman: Jokingly thank self for reporting news tidbit (every darn year)

Sal Alosi: Stand back at all bus stops and subway stations

Rex Ryan: Purchase stock in Dr. Scholl’s

Jerry Jones: Find least subtle way of circumventing Rooney Rule

Donovan McNabb: Learn two-minute offense

Matt Leinart: Just chill, brah! DON’T TAKE LIFE SO SERIOUS!

NFC West: Recruit TCU to join

Jimmy Clausen: Buff Andrew Luck’s shoes to proper shine

Peyton Manning: Throw interception in playoffs, tell everyone, “I can’t do this all by myself, folks!”

Vince Young: Learn multiplication tables

Norv Turner: Stop being so darn assertive with people, gosh!
