So…maybe you missed the actual action on the football field this week. Well, The Schwab caught up with Pro Football Guru Russell Baxter to catch you up on everything that you missed. How good is Eli Manning, really? Can we really tell anything about the season so far? Are the Patriots suspect on defense? What are some stats to look at here? How important is the role of the running back this season?
And in terms of Colin Kaepernick…nothing off the field, just his chances of being signed. What are the football reasons that might be holding him back? Is he only a Starting QB for teams who can adjust around him? Or could he adjust?
This week The Schwab Speaks with current Nationals broadcaster (and former ESPNer) Bob Carpenter on whether this will (finally) be the year for the Nationals. Will Bryce Harper be ready? Will Ryan Zimmerman be a lifetime Nat? Will the bullpen hold up?
And The Schwab has some heated thoughts on the Triple G vs Alvarez fight, the Giants and Eli Manning, the key matches this weekend in College Football, and even the NHL pre-season.
The Schwab Speaks about the start of the NFL season (hear his picks for the Super Bowl!), this past week in college football (the upsets! the comebacks!), and has a few choice words for Caroline Wozniacki and her comments on Sharapova. This is a great podcast with Howie sounding just like the Howie of the ESPN newsroom in the days of old.
So…today The Schwab Spoke with Dick Vitale on everything BUT college hoops. Instead, they talked about some of Dick’s other sports passions…Tampa Bay Bucs, Tampa Bay Rays, Notre Dame football as well as some childhood memories of being a Yankees fan.
Will Yu Darvish take the Dodgers all the way? Should the Astros have done more? Was John Urschel, the Raven who took early retirement to pursue a PhD at MIT, the last true recruit of the tragic Joe Paterno? A few Beano Cook memories, the late, great college football analyst, particularly on his interview with a Heisman Trophy winner who turned down the NFL…and more.
Let’s face it-the Home Run Derby is really the interesting part of the All-Star Break. So…chill tonight (or tomorrow) and listen to the one and only Howie Schwab on the first half of the baseball season, which NBA teams are making smart moves in the off-season, his beef with the NY Jets, and why tennis needs to reworks its ranking system. Oh and that is just for starters.
