Some fluff for you grid iron connoisseurs of leather egg keep away, field tussle shove. My number is #33, huh, Tony Dorsett. Jay Cutler listed for #6, I guess it's not been a popular number over the history of the league? \_(ツ)_/

Patrick Mahomes getting paid, biggly, yuuuge1!

Earned and well deserved. His QB style and play is transformative, next level, and sets the new standard for the position in the league. Teams are actively scouting for the mold he stepped out of, but there may be only one mold and it's been broken after forming Mahomes.

Redskins finally ditch the name. Ideas of what they might become?

Saw a funny Onion article that said "Washington Redskins change their controversial name and become the DC Redskins" and some people were kicking off which I thought was quite funny.

I think the new name might be something government related, in the same vein as the other pro teams - Washington Capitals (NHL), and Washington Nationals (MLB). The NBA franchise used to be called the Washington Bullets at one time, but due to gun violence and crime, changed the name to the Wizards. The D.C. area at one time had a pretty solid (and earned) reputation for being a dangerous place to live.

Its been interesting to see how the process and social change has brought us to this moment with the football team. The owner of the Washington Redskins is a well known flake and not a very good owner, so hopefully he won't mess this up.

[EDIT] Some coverage on the national news here said that the names "Warriors" and "Red Tails" have been suggested. Red Tails would recognize and honor the Tuskegee Airmen.

JJ Watt tweet. Seems like the NFL doesn't have its shit together on this. I hope they realize managing football during the pandemic is going to be immensely more difficult than other professional sports. Way more players and support staff (obvi). But also, from a fitness and risk aspect, big OL players have to be toeing the line of being in the risk category for complications from Covid-19. We are at mid July, the "Shield" better figure this out soon if they want the season to begin in September.

Coordinated messaging coming from other players now (Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes, Russel Wilson et. al) about just what in the hell is the NFL doing to protect players from Covid-19.

Washington will be called the "Washington Football Team." It's temporary until they select a permanent name.

Posted this in the fantasy football thread, but it's important to bring up here, to get substantive discussion going about this. Players are opting out of playing this season.
