Misleading Headlines

Recommended Posts

The "Name game" thread got me thinking of other off season football related word games to pass the time until FA and the Draft. How about a "Misleading Headlines" thread. Here's how it works: The headline has an obvious meaning. But the obvious "click bait" meaning is not what the headline actually means. The posters answer what they think the real meaning is. Once answered correctly, that poster then posts his/her own Misleading Headline, and so on. It can be on any NFL topic, not just the Colts.

 

I'll start the first one and see how it goes:

 

Misleading Headline - Frank Reich announces Kelly as day 1 starter for 2020 season.

 

Actual meaning-?

I was thinking 

Chris Ballard fired up the grill, hosting a barbecue for the team. 
But either works. 
 

As for your headline,

Actual meaning: experts predict the Colts to go 4-0 in the preseason.
