Sal Castaneda and Matt Steinmetz talk about the start of the NFL seasons and the openers for both the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders. The 49ers will play the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night, and they'll be wearing alternate black uniforms. Sal doesn't like it. At all.
As for the Raiders, they play the Cincinnati Bengals and Steinmetz thinks expectations might be getting too high. The Giants are out of it -- despite Steinmetz saying otherwise -- but what are the chances we see a Tim Hudson-Barry Zito matchup later this month when the Giants and A's play each other?
Lastly, can we stop the ridiculous talk that the Warriors' new arena in San Francisco will be done by 2018.
