It’s Friday, let’s keep it simple.

Big game this weekend, both teams need a win. Here are your conversation starters for the day:

Give us a not-obvious player who’ll make a difference in Sunday’s game. Someone like Perry Riley, because of how he plays the run, or because he’s picking up slack for a hobbled London Fletcher. That’s just a suggestion; let’s see you go off the board a little bit.

Then we’ve got a couple polls. In the first, keep in mind that Newton has his most dangerous weapon, wide receiver Steve Smith, healthy and ticked off, and they’re facing the Redskins’ secondary.
