Mailbag! Send your questions...
The future of football. Damar Hamlin. The 2022 NFL season. Daniel Jones. Green Bay's late run. GoLongTD.com subscribers, please send in any and all questions right here...
We’re going to take our cue from Damar Hamlin. One day after doctors made clear the Buffalo Bills safety was on the road to recovery, Hamlin addressed his teammates on a Zoom call to top all Zoom calls.
He made the shape of a heart.
He flexed both muscles.
I think it’s OK to discuss football again.
Here at Go Long, we decided to hit pause on features for a week. Expect our regular scheduled programming next week ahead of the NFL postseason. I’ll have a profile on magnetic Cincinnati Bengals nose tackle D.J. Reader, while Bob McGinn’s illuminating “McGinn Files” series continues with a fascinating look back at the rise of Peyton Manning.
In the meantime, we are overdue for a mailbag. Email all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep ‘em coming through the Week 18 slate of games, too. Will aim to post responses by Tuesday or Wednesday.
Are you also figuring out how to support a sport that sent a 24-year-old into cardiac arrest? This has been a week full of prayers, prayers, more prayers with a touch of football soul-searching. While these modern-day gladiators do entertain millions, they also serve as inspiration for kids who grew up just like them in their hometowns. That’s the thinking here, anyways. Eager to hear your perspective. Also open to any thoughts on Daniel Jones and the Giants, the Green Bay Packers’ late surge, the MVP race, Go Long’s coverage itself, whatever you’d like. This is all about you.
As always, I’ll sift through the Rolodex and reach out to the experts to get substantive answers.
Go Long is completely powered by our readers.
