Tears and Loathing in Las Recámaras: A Savage Journey To The Heart Of The Battle Red Bag

To steal a quote from the late Dr. Gonzo:

I'm a word freak. I like words. I've always compared writing to music. That's the way I feel about good paragraphs. When it really works, it’s like music.

I suspect that this is a common sentiment among a certain type of blogger. (Specifically, the type of blogger who manages to write in the first person far more than a football blog would seem to necessitate. See also a narcissist.) Nevertheless, it's that time of the week where I call on you, the reader, to help me try to make word-music.

Just like we did for the previous 13 iterations of the Battle Red Bag, please email your question(s) to me at, preferably with "Mailbag" or "Bag" or something bag-related in the subject line. PLEASE DO NOT POST QUESTIONS IN THE COMMENTS OF THIS POST, AT LEAST NOT IF YOU WANT THOSE QUESTIONS INCLUDED IN THE BATTLE RED BAG.

In order to keep the Bag going more or less every Friday between now and the regular season, some submissions may be held back a week. So, if you submit a question and it's not in the Bag this week, just know that it will be there next week. Unless it's not, in which case I screwed something up.
