Programming notes from Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Just arrived in my hotel and saw no signs of Bill Cowher as I drove through the streets. I didn’t happen to see him in the Tampa airport, either. But I did spot the Georgia Tech basketball team (either that or a bunch or extraordinarily tall guys, who got a great deal on some sharp apparel) hanging out in my hotel lobby.

Anyway, I’ll be covering the Saints and Panthers tomorrow. Is it John Fox’s last game in Carolina? Don’t know, but we’ll find out soon enough. Same for Raheem Morris in Tampa Bay. I’ll have updates throughout the day Sunday and will be chatting on NFL Nation Live during the game.

In a couple of other programming notes, I’m scheduled to be on ESPN Radio at approximately 11:50 a.m. ET on Sunday. Also, shortly after that, I’ll be on the field at Bank of America Stadium, representing the Professional Football Writers of America and proudly presenting the Tom Berry Good Guy Award to Carolina fullback Brad Hoover, who truly is one of the good guys. The presentation is scheduled to take place about 30 minutes prior to kickoff.
