Apparently, there are a number of spellings of the word futility, as demonstrated by the Washington Redskins, and I think they go like this: W-A-S-H-I-N-G-T-O-N R-E-D-S-K-I-N-S S-P-E-C-I-A-L T-E-A-M-S or W-A-S-H-I-N-G-T-O-N R-E-D-S-K-I-N-S C-O-A-C-H-I-N-G or just W-A-S-H-I-N-G-T-O-N R-E-D-S-K-I-N-S.

Anyone of those is acceptable.

Of course, If your name was Jason Campbell, your own personal spelling of “futility” might look something like this: W-A-S-H-I-N-G-T-O-N R-E-D-S-K-I-N-S O-F-F-E-N-S-I-V-E L-I-N-E. Over at KSK, they’re (or the person who submitted it) is calling the upcoming video “the most beautiful thing I’ve ever filmed.”

Considering the incredible amounts of abject failure going on — what a way to end a half and inspire your team as they regroup and try to mount a comeback — I can understand the sentiment about the video. Failure of such magnitude takes a special something. It’s not something you can plan for. Don’t get me wrong, the potential disaster of the perhaps the most boneheaded special teams play of the season (considering Mike Tomlin, that’s saying something) should’ve been evident in its planning, but perhaps the coaching staff told themselves there’s just no way things could go that wrong.

Yeah, about that.

And hey, at least the Giants didn’t score a touchdown after the interception, right? Small victories, folks. Small victories.
