  1. It's only training camp, and his place on the team is assured.....but still not looking good from what we've seen.
  2. Going into the causes of-and blame for-obesity is another discussion. Fact is we are more obese than Germany, but not that much more. 25% of the adult population for them, 42% for us. But per capita, we have 60 times the number of Covid deaths the Germans have. Clearly, the obesity rates of the two countries is not the major cause of the difference. We have to stop listening to nutcases and their wacko theories, and start taking this virus seriously. Because in many places, we have not. And things won't get better until we start scrupulously wearing masks and social distancing. Or until a vaccine arrives. Which, if we are lucky, will only be a few more months.
  3. I'm still picking up an inference that you care less about obese people dying than those of normal weight. Regardless, your idea that obesity is causing the huge disparity in the number of deaths between Europe and the US is wrong. Germany has 25% of their adult population obese, the US has 42%. Yet, per capita, the US has 60 times the Covid deaths that Germany has. The difference in obesity rates doesn't come close to explaining that death difference.
  4. You're probably right about that. I usually took advantage of the time shift to do something else and watched the game during the evening. So it might not broadcast until after 4:30, not sure.
  5. With all respect, that reads like you think Covid is something that's long overdue.
  6. Anymore glossing over of 180,000 deaths while you're at it? How do you know you don't have underlying conditions? Half the people with diabetes don't even know it. A big percentage of people have other undiagnosed conditions. Are you saying it's their own fault for catching Covid?
  7. We may be a little fatter than the Europeans, but that doesn't come close to explaining the difference. So far, only about 35 out of 50 states even have mask laws, and quite a few governors have bragged that they don't believe they're necessary. Even now. We fall for online conspiracy theorists and similar whack jobs trying to tell us there is no pandemic, and too many people think they're standing for Truth, Justice, and The American Way when they don't wear a mask or social distance. Here is just one example:
  8. If you have GamePass and you're out-of-market and are doing something else when the Jets are playing, probably you won't run into any conversations about the Jets. If I am watching another game while the Jets are playing, I have two pronged solution that works, (for me, anyway). A. If the announcers are about to give the score, I'm ready to cover my ears quickly. Juvenile but effective. B. As for the graphic strip along the bottom that constantly gives the scores of the other games, I just take a double strip of duct tape and put them along the bottom of the TV so the graphic strip is covered. Easily removed once the game is over. Give it a try, it might work for you too.
  9. I watched GamePass last year, $100 for the year and all I had to do was wait until the game was over and avoid hearing the score until I got to watch the game. Even when I was home in Eastern Connecticut, I was somewhat out-of-market, so I wondered why it took me so long to find out about this.
  10. 56 NFL players have tested positive for COVID-19 since reporting to camp Posted by Michael David Smith on August 6, 2020, 8:37 AM EDT The NFL Players Association says that 56 players have tested positive for COVID-19 since players began reporting to training camps last week. That represents approximately 2 percent of the players currently on NFL rosters. The league would obviously love to see zero players testing positive, something the NBA and NHL have both managed by putting all their players into bubbles. But the NFL is not going to use a bubble, and so a 0 percent rate of infection is all but impossible. Still, if the league and its players can keep the infection rate relatively low, the season can go on as scheduled, without having to cancel games like Major League Baseball. The problem is that keeping the rate of infection relatively low is going to be very difficult once players are practicing with each other daily and playing against each other weekly. Even one infected player being able to practice before he knows he’s infected could result in the kind of outbreak within a team that the Miami Marlins had just days into the baseball season, leading to a chain reaction of games being canceled. So the NFL and the players will need to be vigilant for the next six months if the league is going to have a complete season, up to and including the Super Bowl. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/08/06/56-nfl-players-have-tested-positive-for-covid-19-since-reporting-to-camp/
  11. Not relevant, as I will show: France has 1/5 the US population. In the past week, France had 107 Covid deaths. Multiply by 5 equals 535 for a US size pop. Germany has 1/4 the US population. In the past week, Germany had 27 Covid deaths. Multiply by 4 equals 108 for a US size pop. In the past week, the US has had 6,387 Covid deaths. Europe has almost completely neutralized its Covid problem by wearing masks and social distancing, instead of crying "Constitution!" and bragging that "nobody tells me to do nuthin" like we do over here. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/region/france https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/region/germany https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/region/united-states
  12. With all respect, not a chance. All of these sports presently playing are having trouble with people getting Covid 19 unless they're in a bubble. The college presidents who chant "open it up" for football are running a far greater risk than the cautious ones, considering how successful the "open it up" philosophy has been for the duration of the Covid 19 crisis.
  13. The Chargers were disappointed in the young Brees, that's why they drafted Rivers. They let Brees start Rivers' first 2 seasons and he finally played well, but when he hurt his arm near the end of the season they decided to go ahead with Rivers. Brees is not a good example to prove your point about how a good QB can get it done with anybody.
  14. At the 5:22 point. Your beard glowing lends a strong extraterrestrial effect, which is very effective in a conspiracy theory video.
