FOX 1pm:

RED: NY Giants @ Philadelphia Eagles (FOX, 1pm)- Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, Tony Siragusa
BLUE: Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys (FOX, 1pm)- Dick Stockton, Charles Davis

Unless something changes, this will be the smallest distribution a Cowboys game has gotten in four years (week 8 of 2005).

Also, I'm surprised that 49ers at Colts is going to such a large area with an all-NFC East matchup in the same slot.

Aikman's not doing the Cowboys game?

Teddy Mac, most of the Eastern Seaboard will be getting Giants-Eagles, while outside California and the Midwest most of the area getting Niners-Colts is rather rural. I bet in terms of population Giants-Eagles is going to a pretty big chunk of the country, and I wish The506 would calculate those numbers.

Do Jim Nantz and Phil Simms ever NOT cover the Patriots or Jets? Jesus Christ!

Yeah, I know. They scheduled them at the beginning of the season...blah, blah, blah. Seriously, the world would end and it would be a logistical nightmare to send them a couple hundred miles south to cover the game that deserves the #1 crew?

Who says they set their broadcasters to games at beginning of season? They usually set them about 2 weeks ahead of time. I agree they should be calling Den/Bal instead of fish/yets game.

If they actually have started doing that, then it is even more inexcusable, because that meant that somebody decided after the fact that the Patriots vs. the horrid, winless Titans was worthy of the #1 crew.

Giants/Eagles is going to 40 percent and 49ers/Colts 34. I bet most of us thought 49ers/Colts would only be shown in 49ers territory, Arizona, and AFC South markets.

Colts games are often shown in the New Orleans market if there isn't a conflict with the Saints. Like this weekend.

Maybe CBS is getting sick of Nantz/Simms. I would rather have Gus Johnson on the A team because he unlike Nantz shows enthusiasm and interest in the game. The Nantz/Simms pairing so far have done no "true" no.1 games on singleheader weeks and even on doubleheader weeks Gumble/Dierdorf got a game with similar appeal to the no.1 game. I agree with having Nantz/Simms do MIA vs. NYJ because that game has appeal. What rivalry do the Broncos and Ravens have? As far as FOX goes any week without Joe Buck is a good week.

My early games - Browns vs. Bears and Lions vs. Rams. Wow lucky me. I guess I might use that time to study for an exam.
