In this week's TMQ, Gregg Easterbrook wonders how soon until the 400-pound lineman becomes the norm (Bill Walsh has some ideas); gives us his annual thoughts on professional basketball (Boring); points us to a scientific study on the two-point conversion that basically says teams should go for one during the first three quarters, but then start going for two during the last quarter (Allegedly, this is the Belichickian strategy); and in between, the usual random observations we come to expect from TMQ during the preseason. (Thanks to reader RichC for reminding me that today is, uh, Tuesday ... the same day TMQ is posted.)

It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
