ABC opened Monday Night Football last night with a nude Nicollette Sheridan jumping into Terrell Owens arms in the Eagle locker room. ABC has apologized for the skit which the NFL has called "inappropriate" in their own release today. A spokesman for the FCC is quoted in the article as saying they've received complants about the opening.Mike and the Mad Dog have been talking about this all afternoon on WFAN in NY. To me it's much ado about nothing, but I can see how folks would be upset about this. If you don't want your kids to see this sort of thing, you can keep them from watching Desperate Housewives, but you wouldn't necessarily think you'd have to keep them from watching Monday Night Football.
The New England Patriots climb to No. 1 in DVOA, but they aren't a great team, because this is The Year of No Great Teams. In fact, no No. 1 team in any week of DVOA has ever been rated lower. (Note: Table errors fixed as of Wed. morning.)
