    Who is going to have a blowup week week 3

    No doubt, but the Cure front-man did manage a really nice season in 2000 before moving on to a better (less risky) life. He is one player I'd really like to see a "Football Life" about. Not sure if one was ever made - if so, I've never seen it.....

    The Official Week 3 FU Thread

    FU to the Lions. I guess Golladay is just a decoy today. Do NFL coaches actually think that fools anyone?

    That's very possible - I'm going against him.....

    No chance of that - I was going against him......

    FU week 2

    Don't you mean R Gauge?

    Cancel out theory?

    That assumes the deep is even in the Eagle's game plan. With all the injuries on the Eagles line, their plan may be to dink and dunk. As you say, there really no way to know....

    Cancel out theory?

    Sounds good, but there is no real basis for saying Jackson's ceiling is 18 while Robinson's ceiling is 13 unless you actually happen to know their respective team's specific game plan for this week. I'd guess you feel that Jackson has a better chance for a blow-up game because he's had blow-up games in the past and Robinson essentially has no NFL history. As they say in the financial world, past performance does not guarantee future results - this is particularly true for a given week in the NFL.

    Steelers at Giants: MNF Discussion

    Obviously, none of us have any idea what it means to be a "bell-cow". Apparently it's 6 carries in the first quarter and then disappear.

    No love for Henry Ruggs III

    Ruggs strikes me as a Darrius Heyward-Bey kind of pick. It's hard to get too ethusiastic about that.

    Lions D - no doubt, no regrets.

    Name the redskins

    Political decisions have economic consequences. This is not about past revenue increases. It's about risk to future revenue. There have been rumblings about pressure from big sponsors and sales outlets (FedEx, Amazon, Nike, etc.) I can assure you that Snyder would keep the "Redskins" name if it wasn't affecting his bottom line; he changed his mind because he now thinks it's in his economic interest to go ahead with the name change. You are right that there may have been a different calculation had the team been winning on the field recently. That's just one more benefit of making the change - the name change can now provide a fresh start for what has been a pretty mediocre on-field product in recent years.

    Name the redskins

    I don't know if it is caving and I think the decision has already been made. I suspect it's merely an economic decision. I think Snyder has simply concluded that at this point it would cost him more to not change the name. No matter how they end up spinning it, I'm sure it's about the money.

    Name the redskins

    My previous list assume they don't want to totally abandon the concept of a potentially offensive name, but if they do: Washington Cherry Blossoms Washington Beige Washington Puppies Washington Americans Washington Compromise (though maybe that one is still offensive to some)
