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

@Wentzszn

   Any more news about any other players

 

  I was watching wnba draft what GIF by WNBA and the Aces and was “offline” for a while

No. I think you were right. If there was any close contacts they would of been announced around the same time as Nelson.

Michelle Tanner Thanks GIF
 

 This is a good thing for QN and the Colts organization 

Hopefully something will come  out tomorrow if Nelson was a close contact. Reich won’t say after the game bur maybe a media member will get the scoop.

Look at it this way the Colts are in better shape than the Titans

We are clearly a better team with Nelson but we will be ok as long as Wentz plays and the rest of the oline is intact. Chris Reid is a pretty good guard.

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.

Michael Pittman put a new video up. It had some stuff from TC and from inside the grand park facility. I laughed because he goes I can’t show to much because of the mask policy and didn’t want to be the FBI and get anyone in trouble.

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.

...and so it continues.  This will probably only continue on until everyone gets vaccinated.  Ugh....

Wishful thinking, even if everyone gets vaccinated it will still happen....

Kelly and Wentz not vaccinated. Don't know about Pascal. Hopefully it's the close contact reason, otherwise they all will likely miss the first game. 

It’s only ten days to be brought back so next Thursday but wentz would have to play with no practice

    • Sorry brother. Didn't look at your time stamp, and we've known about TY returning for a bit, so assumed...   I do like the thought of Coutee sticking though if TY retires. If he can stay healthy, I think he'd be good with Wentz after a full off season. He and Campbell would make a nice 1-2 speed punch.
    • I agree we need to see more. But if he continues the level of play and stays healthy, it's a no brainer.
    • Well, yeah.  That's actually the joke.
    • Overall WR Grade - B  Pittman - B+ 73.6 YPG, on track for 1250 yards for the season Leads the team in 1st downs, and no drops Note - I don't see him (or X in general) as a #1 WR, but he's doing enough to be a #1, and more than enough as a #2. Pascal - C+ 40.8 YPG, on track for almost 700 yards. Leads the team in drops (3), but also leads the team in receiving TDs (3) Note - He's a starter and getting top 2 snaps, so his grade is what it is. He does do all the little things well despite not having the stats Campbell - C+/B- 27.8 YPG, on track for about 500 yards, and no drops A lot less targets and snaps than Pittman or Pascal, but has a yards per touch similar to Pittman, and better than Pascal.  Seems to be staying healthy so far (huge knock on wood) Note - You can see him improving. Best used in slants and gos, but we just don't run those routes a lot. I hope that changes. Great game last week. Strachan  No grade as we haven't seen a lot, but has caught 2 on 3 targets and no drops. I understand he may need route work, but no reason not to use him on simple possession routes on 3rd or in the RZ. Like MAC, just a waste of elite traits due to our conservative play calling, especially in the RZ. Dulin No grade here either, but did look pretty good last game. The guy has nice speed that we just don't take advantage of on slants and gos... Harris No grade either, just saw him a little on 2 temp elevation weeks. Another waste of elite traits. Hilton - NA Really hope he adds a new dimension to our offense, or at minimum takes some doubles to open up Pittman or others. Overall TE Grade - B Mo Alie-Cox - B+ Only 9 catches but highest yards per touch on the team, zero drops, 7 1st downs, and 2TDs The lack of use is still a headscratcher Doyle - B Only 11 catches, but 6 were for 1st downs. Grading well (career best) We're just not using TEs a lot in the receiving game.  Grasnon - NA No grade here due to lack of usage.  In his few targets, used a lot like Burton (shallow targets) with a very low ADOT (3.5) Note - I've mentioned it before, but he was used vertically in college, now more or less a getting short slot like passes. Overall RB Grade - B  Taylor - B+  Leading the team in yards from scrimmage (524 yards) and has a 4.5 AVG 65.4 YPG rushing, 39.4 receiving. On track for 1100+ rushing and 650+ receiving.  12.3 yards per target, which is WR like...... (almost twice as much as Hines' 6.5) Note - slow start rushing, but have to cut him some slack for lack of carries, and bad OL play. Still needs to improve vision/patience in zone running Mack - B 4.3 AVG in limited snaps, and it hasn't been during clean up time late in games Hines - C+ Still good, but his AVG has taken a step back (no shock with the OL), his catch % has declined a little (plus on drop), and his YPT is half of what JT's is. Note - I think his use will increase as the OL improves. Right now, it's just harder to run him as a between the tackles RB. Willkins  No grade due to little use     WR Note  M Pittman WR -  97% / 90% / 93% / 86% / 88% /  60.8 / 68.8 / 72.7 / 69.7 / 71.2 /  Z Pascal WR - . 91% / 91% / 89% / 82% / 86% /  64.9 / 62.0 / 57.7 / 57.4 / 58.5 /  P Campbell WR -  61% / NA / 80% / 44% / 55% /  62.6 / NA / 56.9 / 53.8 / 60.1 /  M Strachan WR - .  24% / 51% / NA / 7% / 3% /  75.2 / 62.3 / NA / 61.9 / 61.8 /  A Dulin WR -   8% / 39% / 11% / 17% / 33% /  NA / 59.5 / 58.6 / 64.4 / 65.9 /  D Harris WR NA / 3% / NA / NA / NA /  NA / NA / NA / NA / NA /  TE Note -  J Doyle TE - 59% / 70% / 57% / 30% / 72% /  64.7 / 71.2 / 68.1 / 72.1 / 75.1 /  M Alie-Cox TE -   51% / 40% / 46% / 69% / 45% /  50.0 / 51.2 / 56.1 / 61.4 / 65.2 /  K Granson TE -   9%  / 9% / 20% / 42% / 12% /  NA / NA / NA / 49.9 / 51.6 /  RB Note -  J Taylor RB -   55% / 45% / 48% / 51% / 52% 60.3 / 60.5 / 64.1 / 71.2 / 73.8 N Hines RB -  45% / 37% / 56% / 31% / 38% /  69.6 / 60.9 / 67.9 / 64.2 / 64.7 /  M Mack RB -   NA / 19% / NA / 31% / 14% /  NA / 53.8 / NA / 57.9 / 60.8 / 
    • Lol, yeah but imagine in today's league you'd just get notified of anything like that. If he makes it to your practice squad no one else wanted him.
