It’s not the NFLs job to find you a QB. Otherwise, all the Eagles games would be cancelled.

I did not realize this but every player has a GPS tracker.  So they can look it up and see if any teammates were within six feet of the infected player for more than 15 minutes.  It is quite a set up.


Is the tracker during practice or only during games?

Game is On. 

 

No need for concern from the nervous nellie's.

There is a need for concern, as Covid has claimed nearly 1 million lives worldwide.  Thankfully due diligence was done and the rest of the team was tested and came up negative.

Falcons game is a go and rightfully so.

 

Reasonable people know how to take precautions.

 

99.97% survival rate for those under 60 years old.

 

Older people please protect yourself. Everyone else will mostly be fine.

There is growing research that people who get Covid even those that have mild cases and yes even those that are younger can have serious long term health problems( heart,lungs) So it is not just about the death rate. Here is an article about it.

I already spelled out in the league i run, if they cancel a game, our league only goes thru week 16, so if they make up the game after that week, its null and void.  Its treated as a bye for those players, gotta roster someone else

 

similar to bucs vs miami a few years back, game cancelled, but fortunately they had the same bye week and was made up before week 16

Whether any of us believe Covid19 is a genuine threat or an overblown media creation is totally and completely irrelevant. 

If a players tests positive or is exposed to Covid19, he will not be permitted to play.  Anything else would be like expressing a believe that field goals should be worth more points than touchdowns, as they were in the earliest days of the NFL.
