The Nov 1st game at Philadelphia has been moved by the NFL from a 4:15pm scheduled start to a 1pm start. The move was made to accommodate any potential conflict with a possible World Series game that is scheduled to be played at the home field of the NL champions.
The Phillies will face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS beginning tomorrow night. Should the Phillies win that series (perish the thought), they would host the AL champions in Game 4 of the World Series that night.
I might be losing it, but when did they start scheduling WS games in November....?
Either way, all you out-of-market Giant fans get gypped. The Giants-Eagles game was to air nationally on FOX. Now it will only air regionally. It will be replaced by Minnesota at Green Bay. How convenient.
Giants Playing Second Fiddle to Quasi-Contender Jets
Giants-Saints should be the dominant NFL story this week, yet the New York Times did not run a Giants column today.
The fact that it's a game featuring two undefeated teams alone should draw daily interest, but the Times decided to run two Jets articles instead.
When did the Jets become an elite NFL team, again? That's right - they're not. It's this false bravado that Rex Ryan has been spewing that has everyone thinking they are.
Newsflash: the Jets got exposed two weeks in row. Last week in New Orleans, their rookie quarterback made rookie mistakes and cost them the game. Monday night, the Dolphins rolled over their defense in the last quarter to win the ballgame. FYI, Rex: the Dolphins are a Parcells team - they don't get intimidated. In fact, they usually intimidate your team - which apparently they did.....
