1. Week 2 Takeaways
-Me: The Ravens victory over the Chiefs has serious potential to be paradigm-shifting in the way we think about them and Lamar Jackson
-Hal: The Jekyll-and-Hyde teams (Saints, Titans, Steelers, Dolphins, Bills, Chargers)
2. Truth or Exaggeration
-Taylor Heinicke will NOT give back Washington’s starting QB job to Ryan Fitzpatrick
-Not only will Justin Fields not give back the Bears starting QB job to Andy Dalton, he will have a similar rookie season as Justin Herbert did last year
-The Cowboys should NOT reduce the workload they gave Tony Pollard last week one bit
-If their season continues to go south, the Colts should NOT play Carson Wentz so they can keep their 2022 first-round pick
-It’s time to put Brian Burns of the Carolina Panthers squarely in the conversation as one of the five best edge pass rushers in the NFL
-The Chiefs should no longer be considered clear-cut favorites to win the AFC West this season
-Win or lose, should Jimmy G struggle badly against an atrocious Packers defense, the 49ers should insert Trey Lance into the starting lineup in Week 4
-Tom Brady will have the best statistical season of his entire career in 2021
3. This Or That
-Who is the leading candidate for 2021 NFL MVP honors right now: Derek Carr or Kyler Murray?
-Who will be the hotter head coaching candidate come January 10, 2022: Bills OC Brian Daboll or Panthers OC Joe Brady?
-Who are you more worried about after two weeks: Josh Allen or the Chiefs defense?
-Which QB would you rather have for the next decade: Patrick Mahomes or Justin Herbert?

7. Bold Predictions
-Hal: Justin Herbert 5 TD passes 450+ yards passing, scoring go-ahead TD with less than 2:00 away…Derwin James seals it with an INT!!!
-DKrom: Justin Fields throws for 300+ passing yards, runs for at least 75 more, and scores five total TD’s in a Bears upset victory over the Browns
8. Challenge Flags
-DKrom: Matt Nagy, PLAY TO JUSTIN FIELDS STRENGTHS and put him in the BEST possible position to succeed so you don’t even have to go back to playing Andy Dalton
-Hal: All of the 0-2 teams (Giants, Colts, Vikings)….GET THAT FIRST WIN!!!
