I think some people in this thread should examine whether or not they have a normalcy bias   Normalcy bias - Wikipedia      

Actually,  the Vikings have been playing  like they haven't been allowed in their practice facility all season.

Found the NFL protocols. If a player(s) tests positive, then-   Following a positive test, if the player is asymptomatic, he can return once: 10 days have passed since the initial posit

Hopefully the league has already game planned for this, since it was pretty predictable that it would happen at some point.

The league has actually been really good with protocols and if they are actually positive I am sure they have plans.

They are all being retested. We will see if they are actually positive. If any games have to be delayed they can add them on to the end of the season.

 

All are confirmed cases.  No false positives.

 

The add games to the end of the season narrative is simply not that easy.  What if they have to miss 2 games?

I just saw the tweets. They are being treated as positive but everyone is being re tested.

I think it’s funny how everyone always jumps to the worse case sinerio. The league has been great. It will all work out. They new this would happen.

Titans vs Steelers

Vikings vs Texans

 

AFCS definitely needs to keep an eye on this. I wonder if they'd plan to keep the game schedule but force the Steelers to work remote until TEN can return, so as not to gain an insurmountable advantage. Same with the Texans if the Vikings ended up getting exposed by TEN as well.

 

Busy week ahead.

TN was scheduled to play the Texans after Pittsburgh.

Then there is this from Notre Dame

Things are getting worse, not better, for No. 5 Notre Dame, which is dealing with a coronavirus outbreak on its football team.

The latest round of testing revealed 18 new cases of COVID-19.

If the nfl sticks to their protocols of isolation and tracing along with testing everyday there really isn’t a reason to cancel any games. Unless there is a huge outbreak where half the team gets it this is why we have extra players. Sounds like none of these have symptoms which means they are treated different.

Colleges don’t have the resources of a nfl team. Some of these college teams aren’t doing very well in my mind with protocols. These kids are basically in a bubble st school. This should not be happening. Kids need to take this a little more serious. Nfl players seem to be taking it pretty serious.

The league has done an amazing job, really.  Had the government done 1/4 of what the league has done, the country would be in decent shape.

If the game is not played, it benefits the Titans and hurts us.  They get one of their more difficult opponents removed from the schedule, a possible AFC loss at that.

It will eventually be played. Just saw a tweet titans wont be able to practice until Saturday. Which means game is probably postponed not canceled. Just see several senerios where games and bye weeks are switched around. Teams will have to be flexible. What will be interesting is if the Steelers get a schedule switch and maybe play someone else this week.

I'm honestly surprised we've made it this far into the season before this all happened. The protocols in place have worked so far. 

I am still not convinced they have it. All 8 have no symptoms. They will be following up with PCR tests ect. They all could be cleared by Friday.  Most likely all we will see is asymtematic cases because any player with a symptom isn’t going to be near the facility.

The Titans can't be at their facility until Saturday.  How do they play a game the next day?

Because none of them have symptoms they can all be cleared by Friday/Saturday. Testing will continue. There is already talk the game will be moved to Monday or Tuesday. Which can still give  them 2 or 3 days of practice if negative tests keep happening. They are doing virtual meetings in the mean time. Teams only practice 3 days anyway.

Thanks for sharing that teams only practice 3 days.  I had no idea.

Teams practice for only 3 days but game planning takes much longer

 

   Here is another problem

      There is a local high school that quarantined 179 students last week and as of yesterday 170 are still quarantined

We will know more as the week goes on. Probably not much until Thursday as testing continues.  

 

I dont think a bubble would of worked. To many teams. Asymtematic cases are not that big of a deal.

 

Mt uncle is in the hospital with covid. Been there for two weeks. My parents went to their house and my dad and him were at the table talking. He had symptoms too. Luckily my dad never got it. I am shocked because he was coughing so bad. Moral of the story everyone has different immune systems and not everyone will get it if exposed.  I still am not buying all the asymtematic cases.

    • I’d rather not win the super bowl with rivers then win the Super Bowl with brady. I hate brady lol
    • That is so short sighted.   The way to get to the playoffs in the NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses (been the case since the Peyton days). However, once you get there, you are playing very good defenses as well. Plus, I don't need to explain the rope-a-dope the Colts pulled from 32nd ranking rushing D to win the SB. Not to mention the 31st/32nd ranked defense in the Patriots going to the SB in 2011. I don't need to remind you the Saints, who were 25th or 26th overall D in the NFL beating the Colts in SB 44.   Bottom line - regardless of where you finished and how you finished in the regular season, good coaching helps you turn things around and your regular season ranks is not what wins you championships, your adjustments and ability to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses gets magnified come playoff time.    If you look at metrics, we did have once in a decade D like the 2000 Ravens with the 2013 Seahawks and the 2015 Broncos that played under even more QB friendly rules than the 2000 Ravens. So, yes, building such Ds is definitely possible with the high rate of draft picks working out like the 2013 Seahawks or high hit rate in free agency like the 2015 Broncos. You are not going to stop the best of offenses to under 20 points most of the time but if you can limit their possessions and keep them in that sweet spot of under 25, you have a puncher's chance of scoring just enough to win, for which you need a good defense for those timely stops. 
    • I think you're mistaken on several fronts.   First, in general, my point was that either our offense has to be better, or our defense has to be better. We can't have a B level offense AND defense and really expect to contend. So if we keep Rivers, the defense has to be better, especially against good QBs.    Second, if you only focus on the scores in the SB, then yeah, you might conclude that defense is overrated, but that's silly because there are a lot of games to be won to get to the SB in the first place. You gave the 2017 Eagles as an example, and they gave up 33 points in the SB, but only 10 points in the divisional game (only scored 15), and 7 points in the conference championship. They went 13-3 and were a contender to begin with partly due to their top five defense.    The 2018 Patriots were a better defense than they got credit for (they were 10th in net yards/pass attempt, 7th in points allowed, and 5th in turnovers), and it was their defense that set the tone in the SB, only allowing three points. It's weird that you'd even use that team as an example.   And last year's Chiefs team had it's strong points defensively. They won the last six games of the season to get the #1 seed, giving up an average of 11.5 points/game, and they were 7th in points allowed over the season.   Of course you have to have a good offense, I've never said otherwise. But you also need a defense that can make some plays. 
    • Crowd noise?    Sorry....   I don’t understand...  
    • The Eagles are not as bad shape as Saints, clearly, but looks like they would only have to cut 4 guys then restructure a few.     Problem with Wentz for them is trading him only frees up a little over $800k in cap space this year(2021).   Now they can wait till after June 1st amd save more this year and put some dead cap till next year, but similar to Michael Thomas they would have to be operating under the cap before then.
