Behind The Mike Presents BEYOND THE GAME SPORTS TALK

This evening we took a break away from all the day to day news and political banter and took a look into the world of sports (specifically MLB and NFL).

First up in the NFL we discussed some breaking news regarding Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles. Andy Reid (Head Coach) announced that Michael Vick will start on Sunday 26 September 2010 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and for the foreseeable future. This move has nothing to do with Kevin Kolb's recent week 1 concussion but more to do with Michael Vick's performance in week 1 after coming into the game for the injured Kolb with a 20-3 deficit to work with and came back in the loss 27-20 with 175 passing yards and 103 rushing yards. Then starting week 2 he had 284 yards with 2 touchdown passes and a win of 35-32. What will happen if Vick takes the Eagles all the way to the show this year???

Other topics covered were the NY Jets and their big talk leading up to week 1 and they lost that game and looked very bad in the first half of week 2, plus the controversy with the female sportscaster dressing skimpily now wanted to complain about the gawking...can you give us a break. Finally, 23-year old Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Kenny McKinley was found dead at home of a supposed self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

In MLB news, we covered some of the injuries that plagued some of the teams including two major injuries to Atlanta Braves 3rd Baseman Chipper Jones' season ending injury as well as Washington Nationals Starting Pitcher Steven Strasburg who will be out for 16 months to have Tommy John Surgery. We also updated the current postseason picture and reviewed some stats plus Don and Joel had a friendly argument regarding a possible rematch of the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees in the World Series.
