When they do, a few stars might walk away. The stars will then have to choose between money and principle.  It'll be interesting for sure.  I think the NFL is afraid of seeing who chooses which.  I know my employer is holding off for that reason. We at my job might lose 2/3 of our workforce.  But my coworkers don't make millions.  Players do.  Money is a great motivator...

 

Yeah same thing is happening with nurses, some hospitals that I know are about to lose 1/4th of their nurses, when they are already have a shortage. Overall it will be the patients that suffer.

 

But I don't think the NFLPA would allow it, there would be lawsuits that would last 5 years and the NFL won't want the bad press.

Unless there’s something in the CBA (or state/federal labor law) expressly forbidding it, the owners would be well within their rights to require vaccination.

 

It’s not like they have to get the NFLPA’s permission for everything they do.  That’s not how collective bargaining works.  Things that are outside the CBA fall under management rights.

Yeah, but like most union's they will fight tooth and nail for any amount of leverage and the threat of Lawsuits and bad press will hurt the NFL's bottom line.

 

Like my brother's union if management buys them Pizza they will either throw it in the trash or just never touch it haha

Trust me, as a union employer, I get it.

 

But lawsuits would be futile - unless there is something in the CBA (or in a player’s contract) that contravenes such a requirement.  And I seriously doubt there is.  There’s probably no legal holdup to requiring vaccination, now that it’s FDA approved.

 

As for PR, maybe.  But when has that stopped the NFL before?

The low vaccine rate pisses me off more than the Trev Alberts pick

Why?  Frank was vaxed and still missed time due to a positive covid test.    A lot of vaxed individuals are still getting it.   Vaxed players will miss time this season.

Looking at some of the pictures and videos the colts put up leaving yesterday it looks like Hilton decided to get vaxed. You know the ones wearing a mask getting onto the plane are unvaxed most likely. But no mask it means they are vaxed.

 

It is kind of sad some of the leaders on this team aren’t leading the way on getting vaxed.

If they are not showing any symptoms with or without the vaccine,  what's the difference?

NFL rules are different for vaccinated and non-vaccinated players for how long they have to be out. While a positive test could cause either to miss a game, one is able to come back faster than the other.

The fact that noone else got put on COVID list today is a positive. Good sign for us avoiding a breakout in the OL room.

 

Still not out of the woods because it takes time for infections to get caught sometimes, but I hope it's just Fisher and Q's close contact will remain the only sidelined player for now. 

 

It also means he will probably clear protocol sooner and be ready to play unless he tests positive in the following days.

what is the time limit for close contacts ?  is it still 5 days or if nelson is unvaxed is it longer?

5 days as long as he doesn’t test positive. He should be back WED.

 

Reich also said Fisher is at a place in his rehab he can do everything from home. I still expect him though to miss 2 or 3 games. He is going to need some practice time.

Moving forward, I would not bring in a single player who isn't vaccinated. You're playing Russian roulette.  You could have an amazing season, but lose your QB or other star players right before the Super Bowl.

    • Just to feed off of the NFC side I think both the Saints, Cowboys, and Eagles have a good year. Saints are loaded and with a healthy roster they are pretty solid.   
    • I think we are ready to contend now.   I just don't think it will be through the passing game. The offense will run through 28, literally. Everything else should be off play action, misdirection, screens, and short crossing routes.    I think Pierce fills the deep WR need, and I think Hines see an increase in snaps significantly.    (I'll go through the needs you listed above)    --------------------------------------------------------------   WR - Pittman and Pierce (I am totally okay with this combination, I am really high on pierce and I think that his speed will force teams into more 2 high looks, which will clear the box some, I think people are sleeping on his speed)   TE - I am happy with our room. We have MAC who will slide into that Doyle role (yes i know he doesn't block at the same level, but it ain't far off). I think Granson takes more snaps at F this year. I think Woods is the perfect TE to sit right behind MAC and I see him taking most snaps at TE2. (Also happy with Ogletree as that rotational piece)   CB - I've been very high on Rogers ever since I've seen him on Deestroying's channel before he even played. His speed and change of direction is absolutely next level especially at CB. Most people came onto him after the BUF game, but I won't harp too much on all the people who will have to eat crow when it comes to him. If you check his numbers he is very good in coverage. I was sad to see RYS go, but in my mind we win that trade. CB for DE still is an improvement in our coverage because of pass rush help. I also think we see Cross play quite a bit of CB, or third safety. I am very high on Cross as well, I think he fits zone schemes perfectly, and he seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Facyson is also a good depth piece and fringe starter (reminds me of our TJ Carrie signing). I think he can see some playing time on the outside in cover 3, 4 looks.    LT - Pryor played well at LT, and recently he was quoted saying something like "the more positions you play, the less you get paid". To me this signals he is really hunkering down and our competition at LT between him and Raimann will be intense. This is excactly what I wanted and asked for in our draft want threads. I believe that compeittion there will be a very close one, and that's the best thing to have there. (Outside of a bonefied starter)   I agree we probably need another DE, I was severely disappointed with the Rochell signings last year. Is it a huge glaring hole? Negative. We still have Lewis, Paye, Ben, Dayo, and Yannick. I think another unknown steps up and at least gets some rotational snaps at some point.    Overall I think we are ready to contend. It won't look like the Bengals or Rams, but it will definitely be a potent offense. People forget we were just top 10 with the leading rusher in the league... We definitely need more production out of the pass game this year, and I think we get it.         
    • Ok I am following now. PC does have to show something this year outside of just staying healthy I do agree. Hines being a full-time WR though, I highly doubt ever happens. He will be a great threat out of the backfield though.    For what it’s worth, PC seems like a very humble guy that has had bad luck pile up. I see this being a great year for the guy. 
    • I guess my point is pretty simple... they've addressed most of your concerns, as well as mine, because they are mostly the same. I think I'm a little higher on Pittman than you are. Superstars to me are names that are reconizable and players that produce. I think Pittman has shown that he can be a number one WR, and getting to 1k yards is a good achivement for any 2nd year wideout. I won't lecture you on WR's who hit 1k in their second year and what they've gone on to do in the future.   Is he a jefferson, chase, or diggs? definitely not. Can he have a career simillar to big Mike of TB? I think so, I see ,many similarities. For me, superstar is not the top WRs. There are many stars in the league, and then there are the top 3 WRs, and only a few teams have those X factor type players.   I guess I am confused because who would you want them to sign that is better than pittman? Who available is equal? Julio Jones? A guy that can't get ahead of his hamstrings, Beckham, Landry?... I mean most of the guys available are aging veterans who lack upside. Sure, I would have had to like a guy like Landry, especially at the price he was had at. Did he want to come to indy? Hard to tell.   I think you've got a good take overall, I guess my point is that if all we are lacking is a regular vet at WR, then we really aren't missing much. I think we have time to add if we want to, I just don't see it helping immensely or really making much of a difference at all with the guys that are available.
