Earlier this season, before returning to play at Philadelphia for the first time as a visitor, Washington's Donovan McNabb joked about accidentally coming out of the home team's tunnel. Minnesota's Brett Favre might say the same thing about playing the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. After all, Favre has started 118 games at that legendary stadium, tying him with Denver great John Elway (118 at Mile High Stadium) for the most starts by a quarterback at a given venue.

It's understandable the men leading the top two college football teams into the sport's top game would be considered candidates for several NFL vacancies.

"I don't have any unfinished business in the NFL," Saban said at Saturday's media day at Sun Life Stadium.
