So what do you do about a team like the Browns who have over 20 players on the Covid list?  Make ‘em play?

i don't like it because it can show preferential treatment.  It happened last year when the Steelers got to move their games around but the Broncos did not.  

The NFL clearly said that any major outbreaks would result in forfeiture.

Broncos did not follow protocol so they had to play

 

These games this year and last year were due to outbreaks - major deference. 
 

I believe the nfl said forfeitures were possible if due to a team not following protocols. Clearly things have changed now - hell the world is in a different spot than it was just a week ago.  
 

Plus - preferential treatment - there may be teams that benefits from moving games but I think that is coincidental and not planned by the league. 
 

Bottom line - there are no answers that fits everyone.

So if the Colts had Wentz go out with covid even while following all guidelines, would the league let them push the game out?    Nope.   Even though it is the most important position on the team and would most likely lead to a loss.

He isn't vaccinated either.   I think they are postponing because almost all the guys that tested positive are vaccinated

Man, their next game is the one that gets messed up, playing on a Monday or Tuesday followed by a Sunday game. However, it will give them plenty of chances to get players off the virus list.

 

Looks to me like Cleveland took it in the can on this one. Just read that just one key player passed the covid test and they will have 10 starters out and 22 total. Plus they don't play on Sunday next week . They play at GB on Christmas day. Probably would have lost that game anyway but playing on the road Saturday following a Monday night game is unheard of.

Raiders play at home against Denver this weekend. Will probably win. Which will make that game against us big if we lose against AZ. Browns play packers so they are kind of screwed.

Raiders arent playing well of late, Broncos may have to start Drew  Lock who is a total mess. Toss up game.

Colts will crush this awful Raiders team lol.

Now that I think about it might be good for raiders to lose. Ravens have Rams this weekend at home and I won’t be surprised ravens lose. This will put raiders out of the picture. Then ravens will be faltering. The colts raiders game would still be big because of AFC conference record.

    • I agree. Grover is a key piece for our D line. Him MPJ and Kenny would be my priorities. 
    • Adonai Mitchell 1.1% drop rate. Wow!!! Ladd McConkey runs great routes.       Based on this, guys, Brian Thomas Jr. at #15, I will not complain whatsoever  
    • I accept this analysis as an upgrade to instant analysis that was a few days after the draft. There's a year of information to go off of now, and it's the first major step to knowing who is more or less likely to be a hit or a bust in the NFL. I acknowledged that a lot of our 2023 draft class had injury issues. However, that doesn't mean you can say they would be a hit if they weren't injured, it just means you don't know and their development is pushed down the line. For some, it could mean they hit next year, for others, it could mean Ballard drafts competition to battle them for their spot on the team.    Right now, it's a below average draft class with 1 year of sample size. That can change. It does depend a lot on how Richardson does. However, I will stick with what I said earlier that our draft classes seem to get injured more than any other team. It could be due to bad luck or the number of players we draft every year, or it could be due to Ballard avoiding injury concerns when drafting players. It seems to be a pattern.
    • Being from Jersey, very hard to believe the Jets didn't make the list. Their fan base is WASTED before they enter the stadium! And they leave by halftime to sober up to be able drive home! 
    • Let’s be real last years draft class is going to come down to how Richardson does.  You can’t give any kind of realistic grade when the guy who the whole draft class is going to be judged on only played five games and only finished one of them.  The Colts draft class last year grade is incomplete until we know more about Richardson.
