It’s been a weird few days for one reason or another. I’ve found the Tua situation hanging over my response to the Bengals win as with the failures that enabled him to be on the field Thursday night and the potential second concussion really made me feel complicit. This sits in contrast to my reaction to an excellent podcast interview with Willie Anderson and Andrew Whitworth ahead of the same Bengals’ game as they are the good and bad side of this sport I love.

I’m away this weekend so I’m going to drop my picks now, will fill Dan’s in at a later point, and will see if I can find time to unpick my feelings in more detail with a specific post.
