Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Cheat Sheet

George Wenschhof

On the morning of Super Bowl Sunday, NFL Commissioner roger Goodell will be a guest on CBS "Face The Nation".  Hopefully, a serious discussion will take place on the brutality and dangers of the sport which has become the national pastime.

CNN "State of the Union" will also take up dangers of the violence in football with Super Bowl XL MVP Hines Ward and former Senator and football player George Allen. 

Sure to receive commentary will be the anti-gay statements and subsequent apology tour by San Francisco cornerback Chris Culliver.

The less than confident testimony given by Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel will surely be a topic. A number of Republican members, led by Senator John McCain (R-Az.), grilled Hagel when he appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey, chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will come to Hagel's defense when they appear on NBC "Meet The Press" and "State of The Union" on CNN.

They will certainly also discuss the decision announced by Panetta to allow women in combat, along with the swearing in of John Kerry as Secretary of State and the retirement of Hillary Clinton.

The pressing battle in Congress to produce a bill to address gun violence in America will receive attention when NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre appears on Fox News Sunday along with former Arizona Representative Gabrielle Gifford's husband, astronaut Mark Kelly.

LaPierre has been confrontational in his position to do nothing other than to provide security and arm teachers in schools.  Look to see Kelly win this skirmish.

The failure of the Senate to make any meaningful changes to filibuster rules will take center stage when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Az.) appears on ABC "This Week".

The scheduled guests follow below.
