Coach Mike is in the house today. And he's got the chalkboard out and he's talking X's and O's. We've all commented about how Mike thinks he knows a lot about football strategy and gameplanning. And since he has never been employed by an actual football team in any capacity, it would be fair to say that he doesn't know much as he thinks he does. But that isn't stopping him today. He is in coaching overdrive. He's already gameplanned what Eagles D Coordinator Jimmy Johnson will do..."He'll go man to man on the Giants receivers and walk up the safeties to the line to stop the run." And he's also had some thoughts for 'Spags'..."I don't want a linebacker on Westbrook. I want a safety on him."
Usually this type of banter happens when Mike is trying to impress a person who actually knows about football, such as a coach or player. But today he has basically opened up the phone lines to all callers to discuss the 3-4, mike linebackers, cover 2, throws in the flat, etc, etc.
The hilarity of this all is that Mike Francesa just questioned Matt Millen's credibility as a TV analyst because Millen was associated with an 0-16 team. Millen could forget more than Francesa will ever know about football, but yet he doesn't pass muster as analyst.
