Featured Game on CBS

It seems odd. The 2009 Colts that started 14-0 and went to a Super Bowl was not the featured broadcast on CBS till they got to the AFC Title game that season. I think it speaks to their just not being a lot of good AFC games this week. The best one is on MNF with Peyton and the Chargers. The Texans game is on NBC although it would be Fox if it was not a prime-time game. The Ravens are also on Fox so that just leaves the Pats who are playing the Seahawks as about the only other realistic choice and I am guessing whoever makes these decisions for CBS probably listened to Nantz and Simms who would rather stay on the east coast than going all the way to Seattle. I guess you could argue for the Bills and Cardinals but again I think CBS sees a major media market in the Jets vs. a team who people want to see the top over all draft pick coming off a huge upset and who frankly kinda been a major story in the NFL since this off-season. I think people around the country are curious to see what the Colts look like with Luck after all the talk about Manning leaving this off-season.

It's an interesting game. It's a must win for the boisterous Jets and the media circus they are, and we made a HUGE splash last week, and a win this week could turn us into the Cinderella story of this season.

Not to mention the media is hungry to see Luck put on another show like last week's so they can feast on that for a while...

Anyone remember when Simms (who had criticized Luck's arm) was on the Grady and Big Joe show?

Really fun to go back and listen to what was said after last season.

I can't wait to hear what Simms has to say this week. And as far as "zip on he ball goes" ... Andrew has it. and more.

Maybe they'll know a few of the Colts names. We've been getting some really bad teams announcing. I'd synch up the radio but it would have to be redone every time I change the channel during the breaks.

I do that all the time... delay kinda sucks but... wat the hey...

I don't really know about featured game. It is Jim Nanzt and Phil Simms, but it's at 1pm, and CBS doesn't have a doubleheader this week, Fox does, Dallas @ Baltimore and NY @ SF regionally speaking and will be much more popular games.

"Featured" game simply means it will be broadcast to the largest portion of the country by the network covering the game (in this case CBS). Nantz and Simms are CBS number 1 announce crew and will announce this game, their games aren't always the featured game,

Yeah that's what I was saying, CBS doesn't really have a featured game this week because they only have a singleheader, Fox has the big games this week.

    • Can’t blame the general manager when there aren’t quality backups on the team? Can’t blame the head coach for poor play calling and game management? Are you upset that people aren’t happy the Colts are terrible this year and weren’t prepared to play a long season.   The Ravens had a ton of injuries (a couple season ending) to start the year and they are playing well. It’s Ballard’s fault for not having quality backups pieces (and the Colts DO NOT have many) and it’s Reichs fault for allowing the Colts to lose these “winnable games” So yes, it is their fault.   Also, Colts are middle to high in the league for injuries every year, sometimes it’s not “unlucky” sometimes it the way training staff and medical staff handle the players.        
    • The 53 man roster was extended when the 10-man PS became 16.    But, the NFL needs to do away with trimming the 53 to 46/47 on game day.   This has never been a good idea.    Ive read in the past that the weaker franchises are in favor of this rule as they think it helps them be more competitive with the better run franchises.    It’s time to man-up and play all your players. 
    • Yeah, and I don't think Frank Reich is necessarily embracing this approach. If asked, he would still tout the 'run to set up the pass / play action' line that every coach has been saying for 40 years.    I just think the early situations dictated it. The first drive is an example. Successful pass play, first down. Then play action (which I love, I want to see more play action after successful pass plays, even twice in a row), which resulted in a sack because Wentz had nowhere to throw the ball and refused to throw it away. Now it's 2nd and 16, and we know what the situation calls for. I don't think they intended to not call a run play on the first series, they just got behind the chains and couldn't get that second first down.    But, maybe analyzing that approach will impress something on Reich's mind, and the early scripts won't have to be run heavy out of a sense of duty to the run game. Just call good plays, execute, and get your offense going. The run game will take care of itself. We have a great RB, and the OL is doing a reasonably good job run blocking (still struggling in short yardage), so we don't have to force it.
    • Because your think they just announce the restructure the same morning we find out about Blackmon. I doubt that. 
    • Some of us were talking about maybe converting RYS to FS.  I'd actually love to see it.  I could see him being a Holy Terror at FS.  Knocking the pizz out of guys in front and corner skills behind.  I could see Rock being a perennial Pro Bowl type at FS if not All Pro.    We obviously have Corner issues, but man I really think this kid might just be playing out of position in the NFL.  Too slow for corner.
