Recommended Posts

With the NFLPA proposing only going to camp with 80 players, who gets released?

 

It might not be approved? Idk, but , if it does? Who do you think goes?

I don't know, its really a tough call.

 

Don't think they will go to many at one location, though.

 

I chose to release players that didn't spend time on PS last year. 1-2 did.

I saw your article and was caught off guard.

 

I just looked at NFL.com and ESPN, and neither has this story,   Do you have a link?   Where are you seeing this?

  I would keep a few of those since they are UDFAs

Thinking can go either way really.

 

With NFLPA voting for no preseason games also. Again, needs to be approved by league?

 

I just figure, there are obvious top 53(55) roster players. Those are easy. They kept thier PS players for a reason?, so they will want to keep developing them.

 

Could be looked at either way.

 

Saying that though. I wonder what final rosters numbers will look like, and the rules.

 

Would be great to keep 70.. ? Still a lot of questions to be answered. Players opt out?

  I would rather keep someone with promise but no NFL tape over someone who has proven that they struggle in the NFL

 

     You also must look at the practice numbers

I have a feeling they will increase the rosters to 58 players for this year. Just a feeling due to possible players coming down with infection. Gotta add a little more depth.

Thanks. 
 

The 80 man limit doesn’t concern me as much as the request for no more than 20 in the locker room at a time.  Which goes up to 40 after a certain time period.   I don’t see how this is even doable?    
 

By the way,  medical people say large crowds gathered together in indoor settings is one of the big ways Covid is spread.  Locker room, Weight room.  Meeting room.  Lunch room.  
lots and lots of opportunity for things to go wrong every single day. 
 

Sorry to be negative.  Seems hard to be optimistic....

Yeah, I haven't been to confident about the season.

 

I think its a horrible idea for NBA.

 

As much as I hope they can get the season in, Im not to optimistic.

 

There is still a lot of unanswered questions and the clock is ticking.

Would be nice. Then the rest of the 80 on PS...?

 

Seems like the right thing to do. With so kuch uncertainty. Obviously teams would swap out players once teams drop to 80. Probably end up between 72-76 or something though.

One note here. Camp rosters aren't entirely about "the best X number of players". As one example, all teams keep a minimum of 4 quarterbacks in camp, because they all follow a similar regimen of keeping track of the number of throws per quarterback, so as not to overwork their arms. Much like with pitchers in baseball. So even if there were 100% agreement that a quarterback is in the "bottom 10", if there are only 4 on the camp roster, they're keeping him.

That is why I attached the coach’s decision tag on CK

      This will not be a regular camp so 4 QBs might not be needed

This camp will last at least as long as past years', and all indications right now are that it will last longer. They're not going to shorten the preparation for the season, that's for sure. So all teams will have at least 4 for camp.

Yeah how does that even work. Only so many in at a time after practice and games. Some of the rules they want are just going to far. Meetings are going to be done virtually the way it sounds. How are teams supposed to develop chemistry keeping locker rooms restricted. If they are practicing and playing keeping the lockers rooms up 20 just seems stupid. The nfl needs to lighten some these rules.

What is dumb is they have had weeks  to work out a deal. Why are they waiting until just a few weeks before camp is supposed to open. I will shocked if they open on time.

All fair questions, Chloe.  The problem is...  it’s not just the NFL who wants these rules.  It’s the players as well.  No one wants any part of this disease.

 

Im sure your aware that African-Americans have much greater odds of catching the virus.  All people of color.  Since more than half of the league is black their concerns have to factored heavily.  The league has to protect its most valuable asset — the players.

 It is the same reason why several school districts are waiting to finalize new year plans this month

       This is a very fluid situation

Rutledge is a sneaky good prospect. He had a messed up college career . He attended 3 colleges in his 5 years , so sat out 2 of those years. Citadel messed him up when they moved him from safety . Anyway , good size , good speed and smart. Has his degree in civil engineering. There are some that think he could make our roster over Milligan as the 4th safety.

Odum will definitely make the cut. He'll be the only FS ready to go to start the season aside from Hooker.

It is absolutely true that AAs have stronger odds of catching Covid, but studies link that to comorbidity and to a degree, affordable housing and poverty conditions. And those just won't apply to general NFL players, especially the comorbidity aspects.

Hooker , Willis , Odom ....   Blackmon maybe starts on the PUP list , if not will be inactive for at least the first month ? Glasgow can make it as a special teamer . 

 

So kind of makes it possible that Milligan or another player would be the 4th safety. More likely that Rutledge is cut or on the PS. Just saying that I was reading he's could be a nice prospect. COVID really hurt guys like him . There was talk he could have gone late in the draft.

We'll likely start with all the LBs, but guessing only 2 of 3 (Glasgow, Franklin, Adams) will survive. 

 

I'm guessing it might look like

Will - Leonard, (Walker), Speed

Mike - Walker, (Oke), Glasgow

Sam - Oke, Adams

 

with Franklin being the odd man out if Glasgow makes the cut.

Wait, so the players‘ agency wants to take away the opportunity of the fridge players to make an impression at training camp to make the team against the odds?!

 

So much for the American Dream, I guess.

Is that true NCF?
 

I haven’t seen anything published on this (I’m not saying what you posted isn’t  true)

 

It SEEMs like everyone will get this at some point..... almost inevitable 

 

There are people that follow the distancing and mask guidelines and they still get it.

 

There were only 212 deaths in the whole USA on the 5th from COVID , my hope is that it keeps with the downward trends on deaths.....
 

Prayers for USA

It's sort of true, but it seem to be a twisted version of the truth - it seems minorities (not just blacks) have complications more often (not catch it more often) than whites or Asians.

 

As we continue to aggregate data, it seems that minority groups (both racial and ethnic) tend to be hospitalized more with Wuhan virus complications. That includes several groups, not just blacks. Here's the latest breakdown from the CDC (from this link):

 

Hospitalization rates by race and ethnicity, March – June 13, 2020

(# hospitalizations per 100,000 population)

Non-Hispanic American Indian or Alaskan Native - 221 per 100,000

Non-Hispanic Black - 178 per 100,000

Hispanic or Latino - 160 per 100,000

Non-Hispanic Asian or Pacific Islander - 48 per 100,000

Non-Hispanic White - 40 per 100,000

 

I found a couple of articles that claimed blacks catch the virus at a higher rate and then went on to discuss only data regarding complications, but those two articles never displayed any data to support a higher rate of catching it. I'm not saying it doesn't exist, but I found zero data sets that back up a higher rate of catching it. I welcome others to find and present the data.

Definitely shady business by NFL vets to increase their roster chances.

 

However it is risky so it kind of makes a little sense.

Was going to give you a like for that post, but this just threw it off for me.

 

Completely unneeded verbiage.

 

Do appreciate the numbers though.

Yeah I agree, but it definitely approves roster/PS spots for vets.

But that's what you would do right, not what you anticipate happening?

 

With no preseason(still not approved), it is to hard to show  that much.

 

Have to go off of past results more.

 

I know we're jist rehashing earlier post in thread.(last year PS vs UDFA).

 

I just feel teams will keep the players they have been developing prior, over an unknown.

This is the coach in me but I would prefer to see what a new guys has to offer over someone who has a book already

     For example I would prefer to see what FG has at TE over IB or ML

I agree with that. Also somehow I thought Glasgow was a safety when I posted on Rutledge. I guess this "lockdown" is turning my mind to mush. 

For what it's worth , I think Glasgow is a big favorite over Franklin.

I’m looking at the rest of the month of July anxiously since the death count surge lags the case count surge by a few weeks. If the rest of July is OK, it might give us some hope for a semi-normal locker room and possibility of football, IMO

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
