In preparation for Sunday’s Patriots/Broncos game in Denver (where snow showers are expected), head on over to Patriots Daily, and check out Trading Places – Chatting With The Mile High Report.
We’ve also got a little piece entitled Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics – Pats at Broncos. Check in later today for the Worry Wart.
Mike Reiss is worried that Josh McDaniels might be able to exploit some Patriots weaknesses with his knowledge of their personnel and how they do things.
Fred Taylor had ankle surgery yesterday, and while some reports indicate it isn’t a season ending procedure, at the very least he’s going to be gone for most of the year, it appears. All the coverage is available over at PatriotsLinks.com.
The Bruins were also dominated by a team from Anaheim last night, as the Ducks came into the Garden and laid a 6-1 whipping on the Bruins. Get the game stories over at BruinsLinks.com.
The latest set of radio ratings are out, and Chad Finn notes that the new WBZ-FM scored a 2.5 overall for the month of September, compared with a 5.2 for WEEI. Jessica Heslam notes the demographic breakdown, where 98.5 got a 4.0 share in the male 25-54 segment, while WEEI took the top spot in that demo with a 7.7.
I think the numbers by WBZ-FM aren’t getting quite the attention they should. Finn says it “wasn’t a massive leap” – but really it was. The numbers by WBZ-FM blow away any numbers that a previous WEEI competitor had ever been able to grab. Perhaps this was just a case of people checking out the new station, but I think it’s more than that.
