The great Ken Rosenthal from foxsports.com gives us the lowdown on the teams that are in search of a new manager and who are possible candidates. Will the Cubs wait for Joe Giaradi? Will the well regarded Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell be under consideration for jobs? What will the Mets do? All of these questions are answered and more in this edition of Rosenthal's Full Count.
This week's edition of the Monday Night Football preview presented by Castrol features an AFC East rivalry as the 2-1 New England Patriots are going back to Miami to take on the 2-1 Miami Dolphins. The Patriots are coming a closer victory over the Bills then it should have been while the Dolphins are coming off a hard fought loss to the Jets last Sunday night. Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski, and Jon Gruden will be on the call for ESPN. Cue Hank Williams Jr.
It's time for the Week 4 Sunday Night Football Preview sponsored by Moe's Southwest Grill as the undefeated Chicago Bears head to the New Meadowlands Stadium to take on the reeling New York Football Giants, who are 1-2 and have lost their last two in a row. Al Michaels & Cris Collinsworth have the call on NBC but in the meantime we shall be serenaded by Faith Hill.
Now that's good stuff. Let's get to the preview!
The game that you, me, them, everybody, everybody (and FOX) has been waiting for; the return of Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb to Philadelphia. McNabb, a beloved figure during his tenure with the Eagles, was traded to the Redskins by Andy Reid on April 4th as Reid wanted to start the Kevin Kolb era, which Clay Matthews postponed indefinitely in the opener. Michael Vick stepped in, played very well against Green Bay, then went on a tear the last two weeks (against rather feeble opposition however in Detroit and Jacksonville), causing Andy Reid to pull a Mitt Rommey and flip flop over who would start. They will play at 4:15 on FOX.
I will predict the winners of that and every other game, plus add announcer pairings (from Awful Announcing)and coverage maps (from The 506).
College Gameday will be in Eugene, Oregon at the Autzen Zoo as the #9 Stanford Cardinal will take on the #4 Oregon Ducks Saturday night on ABC or ESPN2 in what looks like one of the best matchups of the 2010 season thus far. These two teams look like the class of the Pac-10 and this could decide who goes to the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.
I will predict this and all the other exciting games of week 5 of the 2010 college football season.
Very little has gone to script this NFL season. Who would've thought that the Bears, Steelers sans Big Ben, and Chiefs be the only team without a loss this season? Or that the Seahawks and Cardinals be tied for first place in the NFC West while the 49ers are 0-4? Or that Tampa Bay is 2-0?
Anyways one thing we have learned this season is that you just can't figure the NFL. What else did we learn last week?
It's week 3 in the 2010 NFL season and we here at B-Flo 360 have got you covered. The schedule for this week's slate of games is above.
