Send in the questions, again

It’s question time.  You want to ask them.  We need you to ask them.

So ask them.

We’ll use three for the video mailbag, and we’ll use the rest for the written version of the mailbag, which usually gets posted late on Saturday night.

Also, keep in mind that we’ll be doing the weekly call-in show on Thursday morning.

    Here’s a question for you….
    Do you only post comments you agree with, is that what you meant by censoring?

    Regarding head injuries… What do you think of Joe Paterno’s suggestion that we should remove the facemask from helmets so defenders will be less inclined to lead with their helmets?
    (Not trying to do your job for you, but the biggest reason this won’t work is that it would then become far too easy to injure key players — say, with a quick elbow to the bridge of the nose. Not only would franchise QBs go down faster and more frequently, but we CANNOT afford to hurt Tom Brady’s pretty face.)

    Florio, How come no word on the Colts fan who vandalized a Jacksonville Hotel after their loss? The Hotel is still closed due to repairs, and the costs are estimated to be over 2 million.

    How come more players have not spoken up on the way the league picked this past weekend to raise the fines so much and only picked three hits? Where is the union on this action?

    Do you think the Cowboys can still make it to the playoffs and if so by wildcard or division? I know in four weeks we will know a lot more because they play the giants twice but im just curious.

    Has the NFL checked into using gel packs inside of the helmets to prevent concussions? I read somewhere that this would absorb most of the force.
    Maybe they should put foam rubber on the outside to lessen the effects of “spearing”.

    It is my understanding that the Washington, DC DMA is a secondary market for the Baltimore Ravens and the Baltimore DMA is a secondary market for the Washington Redskins. I also understand there are broadcast rules for secondary markets that include full coverage of that secondary market team’s road games even when the primary market team plays at home at the same time under certain conditions (which we have found out in DC).
    However, those rules are not being enforced in the Baltimore DMA under those same conditions which is enraging Redskins fans in the Baltimore DMA. Why are the secondary broadcast rules not being enforced consistently between Baltimore and Washington?

    Florio:
    Why is Norv Turner still given the benefit of the doubt as a head coach in the NFL? Handed the reigns to an elite 14-2 team, he has singlehandedly sunk the ship. And although he has helped Rivers reach much of his potential, his motivational skills and preparedness seem to lack so much that they have reached new lows (consecutive losses to the Faiders and the Lambs…).

    Will the Congress look into a 5-11 teams inclusion in the playoffs and the new rule that lets them play 15 on 9?

    A few recent players, like Danny Woodhead, have been given the designation of RB,WR instead of just RB or just WR in many fantasy leagues. Needles to say, this changes a lot of dynamics in fantasy leagues, specially those with an RB/WR flex spot. Do you think this trend will continue? Also, shouldn’t players like Reggie Bush also be given the designation of RB/WR?

    Why does DirecTV have exclusive rights to the NFL? I’ve never heard of it going out to bid to the cable companies and I can’t get good reception. Could there be a class action suit for making us buy satellite?

    If the NFL is concerned about head injuries, why wouldn’t they outlaw any helmet-to-helmet hit? The Harrison hit on Cribbs was deemed legal, and later in the game T.J. Ward launched himself, while leading with the crown of his helmet into Rahsard Mendenhall’s facemask. That should be illegal too, wouldn’t you say?

    If the NFL is against devastating injuries, why would they extend the season instead of shortening it?
    Will they allow teams to carry more players on their active rosters to compensate for the longer season?
    Will they outlaw zone defense since that is what seems to cause the majority of devastating hits?
    Is Mike Pereira as arrogant in person as he is on television?

    Question i’ve always pondered, how come when the ball is snapped the play is shown from the side and not from behind the line of scrimmage?
    If you’re looking from behind you can see gaps appearing more easily for run plays, you can see what type of coverage is going on with the receivers etc.
    When a play is broken down into x’s and o’s it always seems to be from behind the line of scrimmage as its easier to show whats actually going on.

    Why has Braylon Edwards not been punished by the NFL?? If Big Ben got 4 games for not being charged with anything(Florios words), shouldnt Edwards draw a suspenion for repeated arrests?

    Why does the NFL double dip? Outlawing helmet to helmet hits, collecting fines from players, as well as collecting revenue from the sales of pictures of the collisions? It seems the real issue is that they want more scoring.
    Shouldnt W/R wear thigh pads etc and protective gear? They never do because it slows them down but they get an attitude when they get hit or knocked out of the game due to injury.

    In the last decade, people have straight up dogged on the NFC West. And rightly so, they have posted the worst record out of any division in football in the last decade. On the same token, however, they have also produced the most Superbowl representatives in the last decade. With the Rams coming back up and Seahawks rebuilding on crack, will they ever gain any respect?
