The College Schedule is coming, but is still being worked on. The ASU-Oregon game threw everything and everyone for a loop. I don't think ESPN knows where it's sending half of its teams.

Phil Simms + Tom Brady = me throwing things at the TV.

Did you ever think you'd see the words Phil Simms on the same line as Cleveland past Week 9?

Nantz and Simms calling a Browns game?

I would've laughed at you had you said that in August.

Hey stranger things have happened. I remember Nantz and Simms called an Arizona Cardinal game last year (it was pretty late in the season too).

And look at the geniuses at FOX - they sent their #2 crew to probably the worst game of the week.

Fox only sent the #2 team there because of the whole 'market size' approach you don't see as much anymore.
To be fair, Fox doesn't have an appealing game this week aside from Green Bay-Kansas City (maybe).
And congrats to those luckless people who get a 4 p.m. game instead of the Pats-Colts. Go get Sunday Ticket now.

All of California with no desire to pay DirecTV will likely be saddled with Houston/Oakland on Sunday. Fuck you, NFL.

Ah, beautiful Sopcast, please don't let me down this weekend.

I feel for the people in Cleveland.

The people in Cleveland get Cincy-Buffalo, Seattle-Cleveland (which in and of itself isn't horrible, but no Pats-Colts).
At least those people who get Houston-Oakland get Gus Johnson screaming about a five yard completion on 3rd down that's 7 yards short of a 1st in the 1st Quarter.
Sam Rosen? Is Fox gonna show a football landing in a lake like they did the entire Lions-Bears game?

I just thought of something that could make you cringe...wouldn't it be funny to see Jim Lampley and Larry Merchant do a football game with Howard lederman as the sideline reporter. wow im bored.

We here in Cleveland may not get pats/colts, but we at least get to watch the Browns in HD - which is more than CBS gives us.

Yeah. Cleveland doesn't have a good record, and Seattle isn't a division leader.

But it's New York, so it's important, right?

And I'm surprised that Denver/KC isn't the marquee game next week. CBS usually goes ga-ga over Denver when it has no good AFC East or Indy games.

Oh yeah. And Carolina is a divison leader, and Tennessee is, what 5-2?

But God knows it's more important for Fox to blow the "Jets Controversy Angle" out of proportion for one of their two opportunities to show the team.

FOX sends Buck and Aikman to a non-nfc east game. Man walks on moon.

Fox wants to finish sucking off Favre. ESPN didn't quite do enough of that on Monday night.

If you can get over the bad QB play, the Chargers/Vikings game at least offers LT vs. Purple Jesus. Not a bad game at all.

And the Jacksonville/New Orleans game features the best running back in the 2006 NFL Draft.

And he's playing against Reggie Bush.

(Insert rimshots here)

That's insane...the best running back in the league is playing week 10 in the Jaguars/Titans game...and he's playing against Maurice Jones Drew....

(insert rimshots here)

And don't worry...Buck and Aikman have Giants/Boys the following week so the world will get back to on its axis.

"CBS usually goes ga-ga over Denver when it has no good AFC East or Indy games."

I guess being three Jason Elam kicks away from 0-7 isn't a big draw anymore.

"Fox wants to finish sucking off Favre."

So they send Aikman to do the deed? I bet it's not the first time that's happened.

Will Aikman explode when Favre gives his team 6 when he pounds it in?

Like the Patriots against the Jets in week 15 this year, it's just too easy.

I don't get all the FOX complaints. There are 3, and only 3, decent teams in the NFC with the Pack, 'Boys, and Giants. Why would Buck/Aikman go anywhere else???

If you don't like it, root for a better team.
