The Bears travel to Philly and Green Bay looks to stay unbeaten at San Diego.  Also, we look at the rest of the NFL in our weekly roundtable.  All the local college football teams are in action except for Illinois, and Northwestern travels to Lincoln. Somehow Les manages to work the old Chicago Fire WFL and the Cheetahs of roller hockey fame into the discussion. Lastly, a look at the Cubs managerial candidates.

Steve Leventhal makes the longest guest call-in on the show's history by phoning in from Jerusalem, Israel, where the even the locals were keeping up with the World Series.  What a Fall Classic it was, with a dramatic extra-inning game six, and a victory in game seven for the home town Cards, which left Rangers fans scratching their heads at what could have been.  All that, plus college football, NBA lockout talk, and the weekly NFL round table.

Here's a brief look at the matchup between the St. Louis Cardinals, the least likely team have been playing in the Fall Classic when September began, going up against the equally hot Texas Rangers

Offense
The  Rangers possess the most attacking offense with five players who hit at least 25 homers, including the white-hot Nelson Cruz, who could be considered a one-man SWAT team against the Tigers in the ALCS. Even though Michael Young didn’t hit 25 homers,  he nonetheless has batted  .388 and leads the club with 106 RBI’s. Texas can bludgeon opponents, but the Cardinals who often seem to be overlooked with the National Leagues’ best attack. They just toppled two of the game’s better rotations in ousting Philadelphia and Milwaukee.  NLCS MVP David Freese was on fire offensively in that series.

Defense
Both clubs have strong defensive players. Shortstops Elvis Andrus and Rafael Furcal have solid defense up the middle, and great speed to limit what gets through the infield. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, with his strong arm behind the plate, should limit the Rangers' opportunities to steal bases.

Start Pitching
When looking at the numbers, Chris Carpenter has a much better resume in the post season. He notched  a 7-2 record with a 3.11 earn run average. Compare that to Rangers' ace C.J. Wilson, who posted a 1-4 record with a 5.40 ERA. However, that should not take away a good regular season stint where Wilson went 16-7 and a 2.94 ERA. Both pitchers will have to deal with powerhouse lineups that are in the top five in run scoring in the majors.

These are two hot teams that played well in the seasons closing weeks. Both clubs will have to play harder tonight and with all their hearts.

This week show is loaded with topics including the Chicago Bears trip to London to face the Tampa Bucs.  Will their decision to treat this as a normal game work or backfire?  There are lots of great games in the Big Ten including Penn State at Northwestern, Illinois at Purdue and Michigan State hosting the undefeated Wisconsin Badgers.  The Cubs finally have their new team president.  Will Theo Epstein deliver the long sought after pennant? All this and more.
