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

I feel that the protocol for the virus will be harder on football players even without fans to keep from spreading at every level , High School, College , or Pro.   The perfect model, in pro sports was the NBA that had a one town Bubble they played in to keep it really safe. By playing games in the bubble it cut the probability of Covid exposer . Unfortunately , this model cannot be  duplicated by all  sports

They should have to forfeit the bills game if they can’t play this weekend. How could they be so dumb. Draft picks should also be on the table.

Picks yes but Bills game will be rescheduled if need be

I dont think the forfeiture of game is off the table, if the game is effected by it.

 

The league is going to lay down significant punishment.

Some in league circles already think the league is inclined to punish teams for outbreaks, reasoning that the league’s protocols will prevent problems if followed and that, if problems happen, protocols must not have been followed. Throw in the apparently deliberate effort to defy instructions by the league to stand down during an outbreak in order to prevent it from exacerbating, and the NFL could soon make past punishment imposed on the Patriots seem like parking tickets

NFL can’t do a bubble league because you need 16 game day fields along with 32 practice fields and about 15-20 hotels. Unless someone has over 1000 acres of untouched land it could happen

That sounds like half of northen Indiana

They could probably do 3 or 4 different locations holding 8 teams a piece.

 

Grand Park in Westfield might be in play in that instance.

 

Definitely tough logistically though.

The first titans game getting cancelled is one thing but then they went and practiced together after the positive tests. That is just stupid. They need to be punished. The league can handle a player here and there who gets covid. But they cannot handle a huge outbreak like TN. Luckily it’s just one team that has been this stupid.

You don’t even need that just seclude the players and staff from their families/non important persons

They actually could. Wouldn’t be a bubble like the nba. Would be more like putting each team in a hotel in their own city instead of living at home. Where they can control the players more easily. I don’t think it’s needed though. The titans clearly screwed up.

Let's eliminate them from the AFC South

If you were a NFL player would you want to be herded like cattle just so the fans can get their football fix?

The rookies already go through a meat market at the combine but past that they are not agreeing to be controlled. 

Nor would I if I were them.

No  that’s why I said it’s not needed.

 

Titans are in deep crap. Another positive test today. They should have to forfeit but then that hurts the Bills too.

    • Bobby O needs to step up his game this coming season. I don't think Walker is coming back ( he'd be a better fit in a 3-4 IMO), and the Colts need better play if he is going to keep that starting role. He consistently seemed to be a step slow in coverage, and that is supposed to be his strong suit. Hopefully, it was a sophomore slump, but if it continues into year 3, Oke will be a backup very quickly. 
    • Stitches....    to your very good point about how to know which performances are real-ish and which are not?   I read a good story earlier this month, I think from Sports Illustrated, basically saying the scouting community is freaking out trying to figure out that exact question.    The loss of the combine eliminates the apples to apples comparison that everyone had.   Plus the loss of face to face meetings...   plus the same set of doctors examining all the players.   All gone.  Medical exams will be done by local doctors.   Personnel people don’t know what to do?   Or didn’t as of early Feb.   I think this increases the chances of scouting error for all teams.   Perhaps dramatically?   I think we could see more Day 1 and Day 2 misses than ever before.   But that’s just my guess...
    • My first thought is LT or DE, but would say that at least so far the early draft of Rock at CB hasnt gone well   We still dont have an answer long term at CB, (Maybe Tell steps up into the role)   I do believe that our CBs will look better if we have a little better rush on the edges......   With at least one glaring hole on the OL and one glaring hole on the DL, it will be interesting to see how CB addresses this draft   Does he stay with his mantra of "lines first" or does he get more of a pure BPA, which could include WRs, TEs, S, and CBs that  would surprise many (or some) fans        
    • actually i think we should move on from Wilkins and i know Ballard could fine a better upgrade for him
