Unless they test every player daily, it could be worse.   Unvaccinated can get and transmit covid.   If they aren't being tested daily they could spread to more than an unvaxed player that is tested everyday

Daily testing would definitely change things and I think it's warranted. Honestly, I think the delta variant threw a wrench in some of the current protocols, making them a a bit dated, since one of the prevailing thoughts at that time was that vaccinated people were highly resistant to covid and weren't able to spread it. Delta changed that and I think daily testing again will be the best thing they can do at this time to help mitigate spread within the organization.

Let’s hope Wentz, Leonard and Kelly were among those who finally took the step.

Based on their most recent pressers, I highly doubt it.

Does it matter if staffers aren't vaccinated?

I want to say that there were rules around certain "tiers" of staff having to be vaccinated and a few teams let assistants go that refused to get vaccinated. It may have not been a mandate, but it could have been that the rules for unvaccinated staff made it that much more difficult to operate in a way that even resembles "normal".

I believe unvaccinated staff could not have access to players. So I think it’s safe to assume any staff around the players is vaccinated.

I wonder how the new OSHA Covid mandate will affect NFL teams.

 

All the franchises have over 100 employees.  But, as far as OSHA regs are concerned, are players considered employees or independent contractors?

 

The new rule does allow for weekly testing in lieu of vaccination.  And I know that NFL players are getting regularly tested already.  So, maybe this won't impact teams all that much.  I was hoping this might have been the impetus for our holdouts to finally go ahead and take the plunge.

I'd guess employees. They get health care for themselves and their families.

Seems like Zach Pascal might of decided to get vaxed or he is not following protocols lol. He has been posting a lot of stories on Instagram with no mask in the locker room room.  Hope he is vaxed and not defying protocols.

Just as I expected players aren’t following protocols anymore. He is still wearing a mask in his presses so I am sure he isn’t vaccinated. Pascal has been posting a lot of stuff unmasked also when rules say he should be wearing a mask. He hasn’t done a presser so he might of got it. Same with Eric Fisher. Unmasked in the locker room. Unless he had covid while also being vaccinated. He wouldn’t be fully vaxed because you have to wait so long after testing positive.

With Hardknocks crews around, I would hope they wouldn't be openly flouting the protocols, but who knows. This may blow up enough that a media member asks about it in a press conference. It'll be interesting to say the least.

That's a false conclusion to draw... plenty of vaccinated people still wear masks.

    • 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.
