The NFL says it's just in case the Phillies make the World Series, 'cause they'd host Game 4 at 8 pm EST that night. Somehow, I don't think Fox exactly put up a huge protest over Favre vs. the Packers @ Lambeau Field being moved to the national broadcast slot.
I think that's a shame about Sherman getting fired. He didn't seem like that bad of a coach, and this season makes sense given that the team was decimated by injuries. I should have remembered Norv Turner.
