In the United States, it’s festive week with the traditional “Thanksgiving”. The menu is packed, both at the table and when it comes to football. Some, like the New England Patriots, are successful and are likely to savor the moment. Others, like ex-New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, will find the turkey indigestible. Not easy, life in the NFL, even in the middle of the week of the festivities.
Garrett, who made a name for himself during his long tenure at the helm of the Dallas Cowboys, has just been shown the door in his second season as the Giants’ offensive coordinator. He is the first coach sacked this season. Is he a simple scapegoat paying the price for the dire situation at the Giants or has he earned his fate? Our analysts give their answers.
Meanwhile, life is much better with the Patriots, who have won five in a row. Now they’ve taken over the lead of the American Association’s Eastern Section from the Buffalo Bills, something that seemed unthinkable just a month ago. They have to be taken seriously, but to what extent?
Many are already seeing Bill Belichick shaping version 2.0 of his empire to propel him to the Super Bowl next February. “The Pay Zone” comments on the odds of the “Patriot Way” making its way to Los Angeles on February 13.
Several leading teams are in trouble. In some cases it’s just a bad week, while in other cases it may be a cause for concern. Now is the time to speak out on the troubles that are eating away at some suitors.
New this week, “La Zone payante” also answers listeners’ questions submitted by social networks. More and more of you are interacting and we thank you.
Finally, the game of predictions continues with an analysis of the matches of week 12, while the section “At the Bar!” still hits so hard. Good listening!
