Audio: The Grant Napear Show – September 16, 2011
Grant’s last show before week two of the NFL season provided one final chance to catch up on the latest injury updates and fire off any pent-up opinions towards this weekend’s matchups. San Francisco vs. Dallas remained a popular subject, with San Francisco looking to start 2-0 and the Cowboys searching for their first win. Grant asked callers to chime in with their picks for a lock and an upset.
In the UFL, the Sacramento Mountain Lions are preparing for their season opener this weekend against the Las Vegas Locomotives. Head Coach Dennis Green discussed how he’s been motivating his guys and talks about some of the players to watch.
Rounding out the first hour, 49ers’ radio voice Ted Robinson looked ahead to this Sunday’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Robinson raved about Donte Whitner and points out a few of the ways that the Niners can keep the game competitive and put themselves in position for the upset. Robinson also weighed in on Serena Williams’ recent difficulties and the potential of Novak Djokovic.
Leading off the second hour, boxing analyst Bert Sugar explained why Victor Ortiz could take down Floyd Mayweather. Bert, in his own uniquely entertaining fashion, also said a Mayweather/Pacquiao bout would be the most financially lucrative fight that the sport has ever seen.
For Grant’s Rant, Tedy Bruschi’s recent verbal lashing of Chad Ochocinco for his Twitter-crush on Tom Brady was in the crosshairs.
Later, in the 6 o’clock hour, former Raider QB and CBS NFL analyst told us why the Bills looked unstoppable against the Chiefs. Gannon also lined out how the Raiders can bring Buffalo back to earth and revealed the one weakness in Aaron Rodgers’ game. Gannon also riffed about the explosion of the passing game and the inflated numbers through the air in week one.
