On Headline Sports with Jerry Feitelberg:
#1 Jerry, the San Francisco Giants signing of Brandon Belt for one more year at $18.4 million is something the Giants are glad to get settled on. Belt had such a great 2021 at the bat and in the second half of the season and was key for the Giants push to get to post season.
#2 Jerry, San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler did what many didn’t think he could do when he first came to San Francisco and that’s win a Manager of the Year Award his chief accomplishment winning 107 games in one season surpassing what former Giant manager Dusty Baker did in 1993.
#3 The San Francisco 49ers shocked and upset the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football 31-10. You couldn’t recognize the 49ers after they had lost four straight games and came into this game and took control in the first half with a 21-7 lead later to blow the Rams out including two Jimmie Ward interceptions and a return.
#4 The Las Vegas Raiders after winning two straight dropped two straight most recently to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football by a landslide 41-14 how much would you say the drop in performance is alluded to the Henry Ruggs and Damon Arnette crisis and do you think things could carry over into this Sunday against Cincinnati.
#5 The Golden State Warriors picked up their 12th win against two loses on Tuesday night in Brooklyn against the Nets 117-99. The Warriors Stephen Curry didn’t score 50 but ended up leading the Warriors in scoring with 37 points former Warrior and current Net Kevin Durant finished with a season low in scoring 19 points.
#6 Jerry, I know you have covered a number of Big Games for us and this one is no exception in terms of excitement for both the Cal Bears (3-6) and the Stanford Cardinal (3-7) and no matter where they are in the Pac 12 it’s always a great turn out and good TV ratings. Last Saturday The Bears are coming off a 10-7 loss in Arizona on Sat Nov 6 and Stanford got worked over by the Oregon State Beavers (6-4) 35-14 . Sat Nov 13.
