Mike Watts and Mack Rosenberg are joined by Fordham Coach Joe Moorhead who breaks down some of the key plays in the Cincinnati game and shares some things his team has gained from playing a top-ranked FBS school. With the Rams headed into the bye week, coach Moorhead talks about the things the players and coaching staff will be doing to prepare for their next game against Holy Cross.
Mack and Mike break down the Giants loss to the Eagles. Giants beat reporter Eric Mollo gives listeners the latest injury updates and sound from Big Blue. Jets beat reporter Joe Vitiello has the latest on the circus that is Gang Green. Then Jets writer for the New York Post Mark Canizzaro joins the guys and gives his insight on what the team needs to do to turn it around.
Give some credit to the New York Red Bulls. They won again without Thierry Henry (hamstring), Rafa Marquez (due back from suspension by injured his ankle in training), Stephen Keel (back sprain), Teemu Tainio (right knee sprain) and Wilman Conde (left groin sprain). Somehow they found a way to win starting rookies at three back line positions. I hardly imagined New York picking up three points against the Houston Dynamo with a lineup featuring a 5’5” rookie left back (Connor Lade), a center back with 225 minutes of playing time in the MLS (Tyler Ruthven), a four year pro who never seemed to latch on with D.C. United (Brandon Barklage), and a rookie keeper fresh out of college (Ryan Meara). Admit it, you didn’t expect a win either. And even if you did think they would manage to pull out a victory, you had to know it would come in another 1-0 affair.
