  1. It's not even about the number of deaths or dying from COVID 19; Look at what mono did to Sam (and the Jets season) last year - a disease nowhere near as serious as COVID 19. Do we really want him putting himself at risk when he/they could have picked a safer location to mitigate the risk? I've read a documented case back in March, where a 30 yr old male nurse, with no underlying health conditions, was put in the ICU for almost a month, on a ventilator, while battling this virus. While he did survive, he describes himself as being at death's doorstep during the worst of it. Once you have this virus, you have it for life - there is no cure, (The vaccines that are in the works are simply to help relieve the symptoms - not a cure for the virus) which means you're more susceptible to other viruses & lung related issues down the road,; This is a documented fact and those who have done their research in depth, know that. Why take that kind of risk? Sam doesn't need another season where he misses part of the season - or worst case, a whole season, due to illness, when smarter decision making could have gone a long way toward mitigating the risk. Heck, I don't want to see any Jets players have to deal with that kind of season altering/life altering setback. I understand we have a couple of members of the forum, dealing with this disease as we speak and I hope they are doing well & hanging in there; My prayers go out to them. Look at what's happening with the Dallas Cowboys & Houston Texans as we speak; https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/15/us/dallas-cowboys-houston-texans-coronavirus-spt-trnd/index.html
  2. Max; I'm responsible for dragging this subject into this thread, because I mentioned that I didn't think it was smart for Sam Darnold & certain Jets players to be holding workouts in Dade County, Florida - which happens to be the hardest hit county in Florida by far, with active COVID 19 cases & deaths with 21.917 cases as of today; 3.433 hospitalizations & 825 deaths. I thought they could have picked a safer location that has been less affected - but some of the brainiacs on this forum, seem to think it's not that big a risk for young people. Obviously, I'm dead wrong & young guys have nothing to be concerned about with COVID 19 pandemic; That's why Ohio State University is now mandating players to sign a COVID 19 waiver, in order to attend off-season work outs; https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/ohio-state-requires-players-to-sign-covid-19-waivers-a-move-that-will-likely-become-commonplace/ I guess they must have a bunch of really OLD students at Ohio State; There are some really foolish, naïve people here @Maxman; It's really unbelievable.
  3. You are not very well informed; https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/04/08/young-people-coronavirus-deaths/ The Post found at least 45 deaths among people in their 20s, at least 190 deaths among people in their 30s, and at least 413 deaths among people in their 40s. This was just doing a very quick search; I'm sure I could find even more telling numbers if I dug a little deeper; That's not exactly what I would call a 0% risk; Get your "facts" straight before you post a bunch of nonsense. Here's more; https://www.vox.com/2020/3/23/21190033/coronavirus-covid-19-deaths-by-age
  4. Yep, I saw this coming as soon as it was reported.
  5. That's a completely false statement & a pretty naïve one at that. Yes, older people are more at risk, but, younger people are far from immune. Do a little research, beyond what the main-stream media is feeding you.
  6. This is good news. Looking forward to seeing CJ play a full 16 games this season.
  7. Still scratching my head as to why he (Darnold) picked Miami-Dade County for these workouts. Seems as if he's not paying attention to where this Pandemic has hit the hardest; You think he'd be making more informed decisions in relation to avoiding COVID-19 hot-spots, after his bout with Mono last year. I applaud Sam's initiative - but his decision making is still problematic. He really can't afford to have another season cut short due to an illness, that he could have avoided.
  8. It's great that Sam wants to get back to work but being a Florida resident, I can tell you that Dade County, FL (county that Miami is in) is the hardest hit county in Florida, with Confirmed Corona Virus Cases; 19,980 confirmed cases; 3,196 hospitalizations & 774 deaths. Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale area) is the 2nd hardest hit county with 8,035 confirmed cases, 1,605 hospitalizations & 346 deaths. If Sam was smart, he would organize these workouts somewhere else - he's already proved he's not the luckiest guy in the world when it comes to catching funky diseases. I hope he reconsiders, because this is a very bad decision in my opinion.
