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.

    • If CB wants to trade up for a QB, he's likely going to need to go to 8 or higher. JAX (1), NYJ (2), ATL (4), DET (7) and CAR (8) all either ARE in the market, or COULD be in the market for a QB.  According to Draftek Pick Value Chart, we barely have the capital in this draft to get up to 8.  I generally put the following years picks a round back on this years value (i.e. 1st overall pick  in 2022 equal to 1st pick 2nd round this year) so if we add our 2021 1st and 2022 1st (likely reasonably early ~8th) and 2021 3rd, we might just be able to do it. I do see a world where those teams mentioned (other than JAX) go in different directions... JAX - Lawrence  NYJ - Sewell ATL - Paye DET - Parsons  CAR - Surtain  Which drops Fields to SF, Wilson to WAS and Lance to CHI.  Of course, this is highly unlikely because there aren't 32 Chris Ballard's as GM's and the rest of them will all reach like zombies. If anything, it's going to be a fun off-season. I hope we get a LT in FA and leave the QB to the draft. But like CB says... get the RIGHT one. Thanks for putting up with my ramblings 
    • IMO if he's turned the corner (behavior and health/weight wise), he'll get picked up somewhere. I just don't know he's turned the corner. Between arrests, injury, weight, etc., he's got a lot going on.  I think you'll see him get a lot of looks this off season, so I wouldn't put him in "last snap" category just yet. Seems like he's kept his nose clean (no pun intended) the last year, and has dropped weight. That's a start. I have zero clue how he's rebounded from the injury (IIRC ACL). 
    • I want the Bills and the Packers in the super bowl.  Super tired of Brady and Mahomes already has a ring. I think the Packers win and the Chiefs/Bills is a toss up.  The Chiefs haven't been as impressive as they were last year so I think the Bills have a good chance. 
    • I think there’s a good chance you’re right.     But if you think of Eason as a candidate to be our future,  he would seem out of place in a dink and dunk, or ball control offense.  Wouldn’t the team want to use Eason’s arm to stretch the field?   Make the defense defend more space?      I would think with better or more weapons at WR and TE, our offense could get stretched out more.    I agree, perhaps not wide open, but maybe more wide open-ish.
