The First Outbreak In Tennessee

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 

High schools don't have the resources of an NFL team.

 

that said, one has absolutely no impact on the other's schedule.  So I fail to see how this is a problem related to the Titans?

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

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 am going here.

 

Why are you not buying all the asymptomatic cases?

On JMV he said the league may just make them play this game Sunday or Monday to punish the titans and use it as a warning that players need to do their jobs off the field to stay safe.  That keeping things fair this season kind of goes out the door with covid.

Tough. Both teams cannot meat together until Saturday. Ouch. Not sure how you play the games Sunday if neither team can practice until the day before.

 

They can do zoom meetings for game plan an install.  but a padded practice day and a walk through day seem quite necessary.

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.

 

Might be moved a couple days back too.  We'll see.

Games are still on. If titans can practice Saturday maybe they move the game to Monday night.  All 8 people were asymtematic which means if they take to consecutive negative tests

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. 

 

If the NFL follows CDC guidelines, all of those testing positive must 'isolate' (not quarantine, there is a difference). Those in close contact with those 8 might need to quarantine and get tested often.

 

When are positive testing folks allowed to return? Via the CDC-

Asymptomatic infected people can return after 10 days following their positive test. 

 

For symptomatic infections-

At least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and

At least 24 hours with no fever without using any fever-reducing medication and

Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving or have disappeared.

 

As far as getting negative test, what type of test was the first (positive) ones? Rapid test? If so, they will follow up with a RT-PCR.

 

But there was a case of an Student testing positive on move in day at college, then tested later negative. Being asymptomatic, she still had to return home for 10 day quarantine, even though she got a negative test as well.

I may have to search and see if the NFL safety protocols are online...

If none have symptoms the protocols are not as harsh either. They can return if they get a couple negative tests.

 

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 positive test;  OR

Five days have passed since the initial positive test and the player receives two consecutive negative PCR virus tests at least 24 hours apart within that five-day period

 

Following a positive test, if the player demonstrates symptoms, he can return when:

At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared; AND

At least 72 hours have passed since he last experienced symptoms

 

In either case, a player who tests positive must be cleared by his team's head physician before returning.

Additionally, all players who have tested positive and recovered (or who have tested positive for antibodies) will undergo additional cardiac screening.

If players from the titans who didn’t test positive remain negative the game most likely is played. This is why we have the extra plsyers.

 

Except for those deemed in close contact with positive players/coaches. The NFL requires them-

 

Players put on this list because they tested negative but were determined to be in close contact with an infected person must follow the following return protocols:

 

Second negative test within 24 hours of initial negative test

Increased symptom monitoring

Eight days of daily virus testing

Regular testing schedule thereafter

Before the season started the nfl put out protocols for players with symptoms and players without. Asymtematic players can return like in 4 days if they have two negative tests . They do this because of a chance of false positives. 

 

They probably move the titans game until Monday. Barring no more positive tests. Viking will probably be ok as long as everyone keeps testing negative by Thursday.

Unfortunate for the Titans, but a possibility everyone knew was there. Next up potentially, the Raiders!

 

Evidently there was a charity event and a packed indoor ballroom at the Dragon Ridge Country Club in a Las Vegas suburb, where Derek Carr and other players attended and zero masks were in use. 

 

"According to the Review-Journal, tight ends Jason Witten and Foster Moreau and backup quarterback Nathan Peterman were among the Raiders players to join Carr and Waller at the event held to raise money to combat drug and alcohol addiction." 

 

Here's Carr tossing a football out to a bid winning recipient-

 

 

City officials are investigating. The absence of COVID-19 safety protocols presents potential violations of both Nevada restrictions and NFL policies.

Imagine Carr and Peterman both getting Covid-19 from that event. Who does Jon Gruden start at QB for the next Raiders game?

 

https://www.raiders.com/team/depth-chart

 

On another note, Goodell has reminded teams to review their policies and procedures to bring in potential players to try out and possibly sign.

 

If I had a team, I'd consider implementing a team policy that restricted personnel groups to mingle together outside of team facilities.

The country club got fined $2,000 by the city for holding the event and committing four state of Nevada violations that included people not wearing masks and more than 50 people attending an event.

 

I wonder what the Raiders/NFL will do for those players that attended? The NFL and NFL Players Association have an agreement that bans players from activities that violate state and local COVID-19 safety regulations in an effort to prevent the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

I dont agree with fining the venue but the nfl should fine the raiders. These teams need to be smarter and not take chances if they want to continue to play.

This whole ordeal is troubling and could affect the rest of the season for the Titans and possibly Minnesota 

 

So far no Vikings player has tested positive. Hopefully that continues (for health and safety of players and those around them.)

I wonder if the persons who tested positive have connections to the Cora Howe School in Nashville?

 

Why that school?

The City of Henderson put out the following statement:

“On Sept. 29, the City of Henderson was made aware of an event that was held at DragonRidge Country Club on Sept. 28 that did not comply with the governor’s COVID-19 emergency directives. The City’s Business Operations Division performed a compliance investigation and has issued a notice of violation to DragonRidge. The business was assessed a penalty of $2,000 based on a fine of $500 for each of four violations: employees/customers were in violation of the face-covering requirement; the event caused more than 50 people to gather; common areas where personnel are likely to gather remained open; and the live event was held without prior approval from the Nevada Division of Industrial Relations. DragonRidge has 30 calendar days to respond to the notice and pay the penalty or dispute the notice of violation.”

 

The venue violated state regulations. Why wouldn't they be fined?

I was expecting that. The hope is no more positives appear (because a 4th Titan player has now tested positive). So far, no Vikings player has tested positive...   yet.  Incubation period, or fortunate?

“If” this game is played the Titans are going to be overmatched 

I don't know. Tennessee has been improving every week. The Steelers seem to start slow every week. I would favor the Titans slightly but with this Covid delay who knows who it hurts more. I think both coaches will have their teams ready to go. The game is going to be televised nationally so that is a bonus. It is a great match up.

    • Ballard is a better talent evaluator (at least at most positions). He’s clearly the smarter and better GM in that regard (how much better is subjective but it’s a noticeable amount). I also think he has had far more resources too though.   But I think the argument you are making is how much does that matter without the results? And when does it become about the results?  But if you are looking for an objective comparison between the two...you likely won’t find it on a Colts discussion forum. It’s not a valid comp to make anyways imo...but it doesn’t matter. The way so many people vilify Grigs and deify Ballard now has made it too polarizing of a topic. And for so many...Grigs is now the villain and Ballard the hero no matter what happens.   Everyone is entitled their own opinion though. I just don’t think Ballard is as great as most think and that Grigs was as bad as most think. Or to put it another way...Ballard gets too much credit and Grigs not enough.   And anyways, I choose to look back on the Grigs/Luck era fondly. It was a very exciting time to be a Colts fans...playoff football, active FA periods, SB hype. Luck getting hurt when he did was a very unfortunate turn of events, but % happens.        
    • I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think it's actually essential that the Colts sign a tackle in FA. They don't need to spend big, but finding a league average guy for like 1/$8m would be fantastic.   The Colts definitely also need to address tackle in the draft. However, if they go into the draft without a league average tackle, they have to take one with pick 21 (or trade back slightly and take one with the new pick). Even if s great player falls there - Kwitty Paye, one of the good corners or receivers, etc. - they'll be forced to pass on them and take a tackle because they have nothing else there.   If someone like AV is signed, a league average starter would already be in place, and you would have maximum flexibility to take whoever you want with pick 21.   If it's a non-tackle that you can't pass on, you can take him. If it's a tackle that you want, you can take him and actually have depth at tackle for a change. If you are comfortable trading back and still taking a tackle later, you can do that too. 
    • This.   People are placing far too much stock in the cliche that guards are less valuable. The average guard is less valuable than the average tackle, but the best guard in the league is way more valuable than like 90% of the NFL.
    • It’s really not though. Luck was great, but it’s not like he was Mahomes setting the league on fire. He never had a QBR above 66 during those (3) seasons. And his best season (prior to 2018) was actually 2016...and the Colts went 8-8.   It’s a team sport. Watson was a top 3-5 QB this past season and his team won 4 games. Stafford has a losing record in his career. Great QB play is the most important thing...but it doesn’t win 11 games on its own. So I disagree that Luck was dragging those teams to 11-win seasons. And I know that’s not what you said...but I see this argument quite often. And it’s disingenuous at best.    They were good teams. They beat other really good teams as well, including in the playoffs where Luck was less than stellar (to put it politely).    And to be fair, Ballard’s only playoff win (in 4 seasons as GM) was with Luck at QB. So it’s not like he has truly separated himself in that regard (at least from a playoff standpoint). If the Colts don’t win a playoff game this season, that will be his 5th season (the same number Grigson had).
