Hot Routes 11.05.10 NFL election week news

Hot Routes

Posted by Andy Benoit


Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll is the son of Florida's new Lieutenant Governor-elect, Jennifer Carroll.



A column mentioning that a player’s cellphone went off when Wade Phillips was giving a speech about discipline. (And apparently Phillips let it slide.)



Ross Tucker, a rising NFL analyst who offers fantastic insight, uses a firsthand experience he had as a Cowboy to argue for why Wade Phillips needs to be fired right now.



The Chargers added a desperately-needed wide receiver Thursday: veteran Kelley Washington. And, so far, all reports indicate that Washington has not yet suffered a hamstring injury. So he should be good to go Sunday. He can also help out those downtrodden special teams.



Donte’ Stallworth is turning into Socrates.



Neither Detmer brother, Ty nor Koy, made the NFL’s Top 100 Players of All-Time list.



Neither did Phil Dawson, though some believe he’s at least the greatest kicker in Browns history.



Packers LG Daryn Colledge could see his streak of 72 consecutive starts end this Sunday (he’s dealing with a back issue -- at least he was able to practice Friday). Packer fans might be saying, “72 straight starts? Ha! Big deal! We once had a quarterback here who started…you know what, never mind.”



The South Florida media enjoys the weekly Thursday visits with Brandon Marshall.



Believe it or not, but the Saints have not defeated the Panthers two times in a row in five years.



A great matchup this Sunday will be Jets underrated right guard Brandon Moore against Lions sensational rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.



Bruce Gradkowski is making progress with his shoulder, but Tom Cable is still going with Jason Campbell against the Chiefs this week.

Will this be the week Andy Reid suffers his first head coaching loss after a bye?



NFL Players recently voted James Harrison as the hardest hitter in the league. (It’s not known whether illegal hits were included or not included in the players’ decision.)


Niners LB Takeo Spikes and CB Shawntae Spencer had a heartfelt Q and A in front of the media recently.

Niners lose backup linebacker for season

Posted by Andy Benoit

The 49ers have announced that backup inside linebacker Scott McKillop underwent surgery this morning to repair a torn ACL and patellar tendon in his left knee. The operation was a success, but McKillop will miss the 2010 season.

A fifth-round pick a year ago, the 244-pounder from Pittsburgh was to compete with third-round rookie Navorro Bowman for top backup duties behind veteran Takeo Spikes. Even before McKillop’s injury, Bowman was considered the likely long-term replacement for Spikes.
