Gilmore tests positive; another Titan, and a Raider too

Just heard on the radio: Patriots' Gilmore and also an unnamed Raider and unnamed Titan test positive.

There was a charity event hosted by a Raider (I think Waller) where nobody wore masks, it was said.

I guess the Raiders follow White House Rose Garden protocol.    

Seems like things are headed in the wrong direction

More Titan players tested positive today as well.  They won’t be able to practice today thus probably cancelling their game with the Bills.

Pic being floated around now too post game with Gilmore super close to Mahomes(and I’m sure there were others as well)

I know they had a practice squad player test positive, but there’s going to be an outbreak with KC now almost definitely. 

this season is just about to be a wash. It sucks.

yea it does suck and I hope everyone recovers, but on the bright side we wouldn't have to suffer through another gase season.  the sooner this nightmare is over the better

This is why we should rest all of our even slightly injured starters, Becton, Darnold, etc.  

Let's get the back of the roster some time to be evaluated that they didn't really get during pre-season.  Season is very possibly going to fall apart anyway so let's not worry about squeezing out a victory at this point.  Ending the year 0-6 isn't as bad as 0-16 but it carries the same rewards.

Makes sense. I'm wondering if this were the plan from the start.

If season ends early without a playoff, pretty hard to justify going by straight record to determine draft order when each team hasn't--as one example--played equal divisional games. In the 1982 season (shortened by strike) they were able to at least organize a playoff.

I predict a lottery-type NBA system if the season ends without a playoff. Obviously, the Jets will get screwed.

Why would a playoff matter?

The teams for whom it really matters obviously aren't making the playoff.

Hopefully not until we secure the #1 pick. 

The Jets are not going to win any games outright, but there will be a couple teams forced to forfeit games against us due to COVID violations. We'll go winless on the field, but still be denied the #1 pick. Because Jets. Book it.

Yep. They will have to come up with something other than straight Ws and Ls to determine order this year. And as you've said, it'll end up screwing the Jets.

Season on the brink. Curious how the NFL handles this.

There’s too much TV money at stake for the league to simply cancel the season.  But look for drastic measures to be put in place such as team bubbles and moving the playoffs and  super bowl back to allow for more flexibility with the regular season.

Season isn't going to fall apart. We're 4 weeks in and only 1 out 50 games have been cancelled.

Agreed, I wasn't suggesting they'd actually cancel. Just curious what they do. With multiple outbreaks you'd have to think they'd look into some kind of mini bubbles or at least teams isolated in hotels.

The question of whether they'd move the playoffs back or simply cancel games is an interesting one.

Fall is here and winter is coming, expect a surge in most of northern part of country  except maybe NYC since a significant chunk of that pop already had it 

This is only going to grow

I dont think it will be cancelled. I suspect that we are moving towards a 12-14 game season and the NFL will need each time to create a bubble. I do not think it is the NFL protocols as the issue, I just thinks its human nature. No positives in 3 weeks and then the players start going back to old habits.

Considering that Gase is likely coaching for his job, I just don't see this happening. Hard to tell a coach on the hot seat the punt on the season.

Is it possible for the FL to suspend games for two to three weeks, enough time to retest/isolate positive testing players and come back in some form of semi bubble with eight games?

Hopefully all those analytic  specialists can keep the football going with enhanced safety protocols. the prospect of a Covid winter without football, unthinkable.

The thought of this winter without football is actually delightful to me

i'm still not seeing why this is a big deal.  it all depends on the symptoms these guys have.  they are young healthy people and the likely hood of them being flat on their backs or on a ventilator are between slim and none.  would these guys stop playing if they had the flu? and if there are players who do get sever symptoms how is this any worse than if they were put on IR.  the optics are bad mainly because we've all had the bejeezus scared out of us for the past 6 months but the truth is there have been many treatment advances made and the virus isn't nearly as dangerous as it was back in february.

It’s bad because if they have symptoms and they are near any teammates or coaches in an enclosed space like a practice facility or gym they can all get it.  Once someone becomes symptomatic it’s already too late

 

And Belichick is such a cheating dishonest jerk I wouldn’t put it past him to try to hide players who are showing symptoms

The answer was always very simple.  The players needed to go to practice, wear their masks when not playing, and not socially interact at all during the season.  It needed to be all football for 4 months.  Like being on a submarine, except they get paid much more.  

We all suspected that there would be golf outings, and night clubs, and strip clubs, and other shenanigans.  

But if I were the NFL I would shorten the season, and lock players down.  It basically needs to be a three month training camp.  That is what they need to do if they want to get paid.

Some staff member is going to get really sick.

Best argument for cutting him loose now.  

This is the exact problem with Coaches in limbo, and why the Jets need an interim who basically will listen to what JD says.  

The Jets should be preserving their valuable assets for next year.  The rest of this season should a giant Practice Squad tryout.
