I’m thinking of boycotting a certain team’s nickname here. I just find “Giants” so offensive to big people. NFL Week4 launches with the 165th all-time meeting between NFC East rivals both trying to relocate their mojo, and I’m feeling an upset by visiting NYG. Biggies have won nine of the past 12 in the series including six of the past eight in Skinsville, and Eli Manning finally seems to be getting comfy in his team’s new West Coast/short-pass/quick-release offensive scheme. Washington also is injury-wracked and less ready physically for a Thursday game. Finally, no the Skins are NOT better without injured Robert Griffin III, a rumor evidently started by Kirk Cousins’agent.
