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.

Wow that is just wrong. Teams and players need to  do better then that.  They should be fined.

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.

    • This kid could make things really interesting and turn that flat-butt 4-3 into something really special with corners who can press. The scheme could be really sneaky good with that personnel. 
    • I don't know who else we really need to have a bounce back year, especially on D.  Along our DL, we either need to bring back Houston and Autry or figure out how to replace them - but both had pretty solid years.  Lewis was better than he had been his first couple years.  Buckner was a stud and Stewart was solid.  Having Turay come back healthy and seeing Banogu improve would be helpful, but they both played so little last year and hadn't done enough previously to indicate last year was a 'down year'.  At LB, Leonard was a first-team all pro again and very solid.  Walker was solid but saw his snap count decrease and Oke had his ups and downs while seeing his snap count dramatically increase (as @EastStreet pointed out,  not only did his snaps go way up compared to his rookie year but the way he was used was different).  I doubt we see Walker back, so it'd be nice to see Oke improve for sure.  Then in the secondary we had solid play from Rhodes, Carrie, Willis and Moore for the most part.  Blackmon was solid (especially early on, but he seemed to digress as the year went on - IMO, to be expected as he was raw coming in and was coming off a knee injury, I don't think he was supposed to get near the snaps he did last year, but we know what happened with Hooker and sort of forced Blackmon into the fire).  RYS had a down year, but I don't see why he can't bounce back - he's got the physical traits - I tend to think he battled some mental demons after some P-Int penalties, and hopefully he can refine his technique some and come back strong.     In all, on the D, I think we're in good shape.  Keep in mind, it seemed like 'Flus called the D a bit differently last year than he had in earlier years here.  We are, overall (aside from Houston, Autry, Rhodes) very young on D.  We had a very weird off-season last year, which (IMO) is critical for younger guys.  I can't help but think it didn't help the likes of guys like RYS and Oke who saw their roles increase and change (IMO, OKe's change was more than a 'slight' change) between their rookie year and year 2.     On O, ideally we'll see solid QB play from Wentz (I won't go as far as to saying he needs a 'bounce back' year as he hasn't been in Indy before and it sounds like there was a lot of toxicity in Philly, hopefully all he needs in a change of scenery and a reunion with Reich).  Our OL was solid, so as long as we can replace AC at LT I think we'll be OK there.  We had pretty consistent play from Hines and Wilkins throughout the year and JT got dramatically better as the season wore on -- I think if those guys can start up where they left off, we're more than fine at RB.  TY didn't have his best year, but he's be declining for about 3 years now, so if we bring him back, all we can do is hope he stays healthy and I think we'll be in OK shape.  Pittman missed some time with his leg compartment syndrome, but was solid down the stretch, so I don't think we need him to 'bounce back', just continue on his trajectory and he's gonna be solid.  Pascal was solid and I think we've pretty much seen his ceiling, so he just needs to stay solid.  It would be sweet to see Campbell and/or Patmon to emerge, but don't think we need them to 'bounce back' as we've never gotten high level results from them to begin with.     Then on STs, we were pretty solid all around.  Would like to see Blankenship add a bit more umphf to his kicks, but he was solid and Sanchez was solid punting.  The coverage and return units were solid overall.   So really, I think we need a comeback or bounce back year from RYS and maybe Oke... but overall, I don't think we need a 'bunch of them.'       I agree, pretty much  have to temper expectations on Speed being from a small school.  He did really improve on STs last year and he got his praise any time Ballard or any coaches spoke about him.  I get the feeling Ballard and staff are willing to use patience with project players (Ballard states that fairly regularly).  With Oke, Walker, Leonard and then Franklin who has more playing experience at LB - I don't think there was really much need to rush Speed into an LB role last year.  He got plenty of ST snaps and did well there, hopefully boosting his confidence that he can play at NFL level while still refining his LB technique in practices and the film room.     While I would rather see guys like Adams and Glasgow on STs - I don't think it is terrible to have them on the roster primarily as STers but being our 5th and 6th ranked LBs on the depth chart as well.  Meaning, if we went into the season with Leonard, Oke, Speed and Franklin as our top 4 with Adams and Glasgow as STers but listed as 5 and 6 on depth chart, I don't think it'd be the worst thing (especially considering we predominantly play with only 2 LBers on the field).  So, sure it'd be nice to bring in a mid-late round draft pick or sign a decent FA for fairly cheap, but I'd rather see us dishing out money to bring in a solid LT, a playmaker at TE (and maybe WR), retain Rhodes, ensure the DL was solid (either by bringing back Houston and Autry or by getting a guy like Bud Dupree/JJ Watt/etc.), and add OL depth.  In otherwords, regardless of if we bring Walker back or not, I don't think LB is a top 5 position of concern right now.   I don't think Walker is going to command a ton, but he was 15th in the NFL in tackles in 2018 (124), tied for 28th (105) in 2019 and in the top 50 in 2020 (92).  He's a pretty productive player and a solid one - so he's going to demand significantly more than he was getting as a 5th round pick on his rookie contract.  And yes, he definitely wants to play more and I think his biggest issue here is his lack of athleticism.  You're right, he'll probably play more in a 3-4 D and he will likely be offered more money by a team where he'll play a lot than what Ballard will offer him.    See the last line from Ballard in this article:  https://www.colts.com/news/chris-ballard-philip-rivers-ty-hilton-xavier-rhodes-2020-season-press-conference (Ballard on Linebacker Anthony Walker: "I have a special relationship with Anthony Walker. Selfless. Team guy. Rare leader. I hope he gets into coaching one day or scouting. Mark my words on this: if Anthony Walker gets into coaching, he will be a head football coach in the National Football League. And if he gets into scouting, he'll be a general manager. He's brilliant — absolutely brilliant, and he's made of the right stuff. I know Anthony wants to play more. We value Anthony. We'll see how it works out. I want good for Anthony."   My guess is Walker is gone.
