The San Francisco 49ers’ loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday caused quite a bit of commotion today, so Grant started the show by discussing the game and giving his analysis on what went wrong for the 49ers.
NFL rules analyst Mike Pereira of FOX Sports came on the show some key plays in the 49ers game.
Pereira explained that the safety call that went against the 49ers should not have been ruled a safety, why Jim Harbaugh did not challenge the safety call and his uncertainty regarding the roughing the quarterback call that went against the St. Louis Rams.
Kenny Albert of FOX joined Grant to talk about the 49ers and Rams game as well.
Albert talked about the 49ers loss in St. Louis on Sunday and preparing for another possible tie, the safety that shouldn’t have been called, the stability that Jeff Fisher has brought to the Rams, and because he’s also a New York Rangers broadcaster, Albert gave his thoughts on the NHL lockout.
Bill Macatee of CBS Sports joined Grant today.
Macatee announced the Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns game on Sunday so he discussed the Raiders’ ineptitude on the defensive end and the patience Raiders fans should have with the team’s rebuilding process. Macatee also touched on the success of this year’s rookie quarterbacks and the lack of an American golfer who is ready take over the dominance that Tiger Woods left behind.
Former Oakland Raider and Stanford Cardinal Jim Plunkett was Grant’s final guest today.
Plunkett discussed the Raiders’ poor defensive play, the need for fans to stay patient with this Raiders regime, Head Coach David Shaw’s impressive tenure so far at Stanford, the all-black Stanford uniforms and this year’s crop of rookie NFL quarterbacks.
