The calendar has now officially turned to the date when football becomes the focus of gamblers everywhere, and tonight the NFL gets a chance to shine in prime time with the Monday Night Football game between Denver and Green Bay.

The Green Bay Packers had a tumultuous off season with rumors swirling over whether Brett Favre was coming back for another season, or retiring. Favre must have known something when he decided to come back as the Packers have been one of the biggest surprises in the league so far.

The Broncos started the season slowly, but have seemed to correct their problems and again are looking towards competing for the AFC West title. They know that they must win tonights game if they are to continue the momentum they started last week when they beat the Steelers.

Gamblers could have difficulty with this game as the Packers have looked vulnerable the past few weeks, and the Broncos have been inconsistent, one week looking like World beaters, and the next looking terrible.

The Packers can open up their lead in the division with a win after both Chicago and Minnesota both lost on Sunday. The Broncos also must win because the Chargers appear to be playing back at a championship level.

Game time will be moved from 8:00 to 8:30. The game was originally scheduled for 8 to accommodate the World Series, but now that the Series has ended, the game will be moved back to its original start time of 8:30.…

The GM meetings are coming to a close and the baseball off season has gotten off to a slow start as, besides a few rumors of who is available to be traded, not much happened this week.

Alex Rodriguez is the big story of this off season and his agent Scott Boras did have a few meetings with GMs during the week, but these were just preliminary cordial talks before the real negotiations begin.

The Mets, Angels, Red Sox, and Dodgers all listened to what Boras had to say during the week, but it is unlikely any of these teams will move quickly in trying to sign Rodriguez.

Miguel Cabrera was a hot topic this week as there was speculation that he might be available in a trade, but nothing more than conversations took place on this front.

It is likely that the trade talks will heat up in a few weeks, as next week is the first time that teams can make offers to potential free agents, and once a few of these free agents sign, teams will have a better grasp on what their areas of need are.

Jorge Posada is one of the few top free agents that are out there and the chances are that he is staying in New York. Which New York team he will play for is uncertain as both the Yankees and the Mets are pursuing him strongly.

The winter meetings will be the next time all the GMs will be together as they will be held in December, and much more should come out of those meetings than the ones that took place this week.…
