NFL Open Thread - Week 4 Late Games

Sunday, September 28, 2008


Only three games this afternoon, and if you're in St. Louis or the close-by area, you're really dicked, as you're getting stuck with watching the Rams get beat up by the Bills today. Choo Choo hopes Trent Green survives the game with his head intact. I'll be flipping back between the SD/Oakland game along with Skins/Boys, because I have three Chargers in my fantasy line-up.

CBS:

San Diego at Oakland - Jim Nantz, Phil Simms
Buffalo at St. Louis - Ian Eagle, Solomon Wilcots

FOX:

Washington at Dallas - Joe Buck, Troy Aikman

Do it to it, everybody, and stay tuned for the Eagles-Bears live-blog!

Update: Here's the Boldin vid. Pretty scary, but word is that he's moving all of his extremities at the present time. Hopefully he and Bronco receiver, Clifford Russell, make full recoveries.

I just moved to St. Louis and this is the second time, I think, that we've had only two games during the day, instead of three. Do you know why it is they're not showing Dallas-Washington here? It's bad enough having the Rams on one channel; it's basically unbearable when there's no alternative.

The NFL stupid television rules prevent any game from being televised against the home team in the primary market. This causes a lot of problems when the home team stinks and never appears on national television.

The problem is biggest in the Bay area, where most weeks are two game weekends, and both almost always involve the 49ers and Raiders

"The Jets will move up in the BCS standings" - Joe Buck after a update on Jets / Cards, and it was pointed out on PFT earlier that the
Jets throwbacks look like Favre's college uniform.

I swore I heard Buck say Packers during that, but not sure.

If what Anon 4:13 said is true, how is Skins / Boys not blacked in Oakland ?

jg said...
Sep 28, 2008, 4:28:00 PM  

@ jg



It is blacked out actually.......however if the Raiders game isn't sold out, they get the Cowboys/Redskins.

Man, that sucks. Thanks for the answer.

Everybody, please cross your fingers and hope Buck doesn't get Seahawks/Giants.

Thanks the maps published early in the week did not show a blackout in Oakland.

"Maybe the Cardinals shouldnt have stayed on the East Coast" - Buck commenting on Jets / Cards

Predictably choking, SS. Stupid bullpen.

Anyone see the hit on Boldin? I'm hearing a possible broken neck.

Up is down, the Redskins have an offensive line.

"They are going to steal that all day." - Aikman on Dallas TE Witten scoring a TD on Skins LB Marcus Washington.

From the NASCAR race :

"Penalty for being too fast in and out of the pit" - Jerry Punch (I think)

That was BS no horse collar on Randle El

Boy, did I fuck up this "starting Phil Rivers instead of Tony Romo" today. Yikes.

At least that last TD from the Raiders gave us some NORV Face.

"Who's coaching the Raiders today ?" - Aikman

"Maybe you have to threaten to fire your coach to get the team to perform." - Buck in response and ntoing the Rams / Bills score.

Please dont give Danny "Boy George"
Snyder any ideas.

Just some quick announcing updates for week 5:


Seahawks/Giants will be Kenny, Moose, Goose.


Redskins/Eagles will be Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

Stupid Philip Rivers. Fumble and a pick.

AA must be running around like a mad man now as Washington takes the lead.


Pretty impressive stuff.

SS 5:15

Yea they do, if they can maintain it for the whole game

I've always thought Jason Campbell could be scary good if he ever got used to a system again.

Signal to Noise said...
Sep 28, 2008, 5:20:00 PM  

Well done New York Mets, the final game at Shea Stadium is another loss to the Marlins.

SS - there will be a post on this later. I need to recover first.

Ya Gotta Bereave!

Supposedly, this versiion of the WCO is similar to what Campbell ran at Auburn in his senior year when they went 13-0.

That concept of time and math really fails Washington.

SS 5:33

I would love to see that also, but the complaining from the papmpered media types about having the SB there would be unbearable. It could be unseasonably warm and the media would still cry about the cold.

WTF ? Skins you shut the Cowgirls down for most and now you go into a prevent

I will be so upset if Washington blows this.....even though I picked Dallas, I think my stance is pretty clear on Dallas.

Buck is trying to enact the announcer jinx on Campbell by continually saying he has no turnovers.

Buck's money must be on the Boys.

I love prevent defense.........not!

433: Had the Raiders not sold out CBS would have aired Bills-Rams in and around the Bay Area. Fox could only show one game (49ers-Saints) in Frisco.

How bout the play Carlos Rogers made on Terrell Owens that the fans wanted to see as Interference, no call. Troy Aikman: THAT WAS A GOOD NO CALL BY THE OFFICIALS. Please people, this is more proof that Aikman is NOT pro-Dallas.
