NFL seems to be the main topic of discussion, week in and week out. This week we take an opposing position to the quality of NFL games over the past few weeks. The quality of game play and the quality of match-ups have made for some disappointing entertainment. In a given week, there are typically 5 to 6 games that are intriguing. Week 6 and 7 produced a handful of games that provided the usually entertaining, cliff-hanger type football game. What’s the cause here? Perhaps an offensively driven league is creating a greater divide between good and bad teams… Perhaps it’s just a strange three week period in the league where last year’s match-ups aren’t living up to this year’s expectations… Dave coins this season “The Year of Uninteresting Games.”
What we wouldn’t give up to be in Saint Louis right now!! The Fall Classic has proven to be, once again, a blockbuster hit for MLB and sports fans. We have seen flashes of dominant pitching, the power of sluggers, and the amazing managing ability of personnel. We have seen Ron Washington field a host of unfair criticism since the Divisional Series. We set the record straight on the managing ability of the Rangers skipper. La Russa isn’t without fault in the series and has had to answer some tough questions along the way as well. Join us as we breakdown the Fall Classic from several angles on this week’s Sports Unleashed podcast!
