Our Week 10 Go Long Gameday chat is... OPEN
Hang out with your fellow subscribers right inside the Substack app. Details inside!
Good morning, everyone!
A reminder that each Sunday, we’ll all be chatting on the Substack app. Consider it a virtual hangout, the healthy alternative to Twitter. Grab a coffee, a beer, whatever your Week 10 poison and rant ‘n rave away with your fellow Go Long subscribers right from your phone.
I just teed up a Week 10 thread. Feel free to steer the chat any direction you’d like with fans from around the globe.
To join, download the Substack app — messages are sent via the app, not email — and turn on push notifications so you don’t miss a chance to join conversation as it happens.
This is a fun slate of games, too. Josh Allen is expected to start against the Minnesota Vikings despite his elbow injury. Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy meet again at Lambeau Field. And I’m eager to see if the Cleveland Browns can give Miami a game. We’ll break it all down inside the app.

ICYMI, here’s what we had at Go Long this week…
The lessons of Ted Thompson: Lambeau Field will host an Aaron Rodgers-Mike McCarthy reunion on Sunday. But the eerie similarities between 2018 and 2022 bring a different man to mind: the late, great GM Ted Thompson.
Juwan Johnson and the power of the mind: The New Orleans Saints tight end sits down with Go Long to discuss his life turnaround in college, beefing up in the pros and the struggle of losing two unborn babies in 2022.
Podcast, Chris Howard on Michigan glory, Brady, Woodson and... ridiculous Coughlin fines: The 1997 national champion running back relives a life in football. He saw a gleam in a certain quarterback's eye way back when, too.
McGinn Wrap, Part 9, the 1979-2021 All-Time Green Bay Packers offense: The best of the best that our Hall-of-Fame writer covered in Green Bay are ranked. Favre or Rodgers? Green or Jones? Sharpe, Lofton, Adams? All debates are settled here.
When going rogue goes wrong... very wrong: No, it wasn't The Onion or The Babylon Bee. Colts owner Jim Irsay really did hire Jeff Saturday as his interim head coach this week, showing us all again how an NFL owner can torpedo his own franchise.
Demario Davis has spoken to God: And these conversations give the Saints a prayer in 2022. It is no coincidence that this linebacker — this heartbeat of the defense — only gets better with age. What a spiritual journey it’s been.
Podcast, the AFC East is suddenly a rock fight: Apparently the division will not simply peel over and die at the sight of Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. Robert Saleh's group came to play and the Bills were offered a reality check.
