    Your absolutely right about that, dying alone without your love ones being there for you and at the least getting to say goodbye. So many of our country’s elderly, grandmas, grandpa’s, hero’s who fought in many of our country’s wars died the worst deaths imaginable. Breaks my heart. I’m sure they would want us to fight this disease and not allow it to change life as we know it, the freedom they bravely fought for.

    I’m sure many people think the flu is no big deal, but the families who lose loved ones to it every year probably don’t feel any better than the families who have lost loved ones to Covid, Cancer, or heart disease.
    I lost my father when he was 48 to a heart attack and my grandfather died from cancer a couple years ago. Losing loved ones in death is horrible no matter the cause.
    The worst part about Covid is that many who have held off other conditions are not able to beat this virus because their immune systems are too weak.

They will be out for 10-14 days . Youd be surprised how many of their spouses and kids tested negative. We are testing every couple weeks .

    Another issue is false negatives. I believe this is a huge number of positive cases . A small % of the people I know had symptoms.

    It’s not an easy decision for sure. I see it as an experiment that could help doctors and scientists study the virus. A lot more than football could come from a season. When a player gets the virus, tracing what activities, and locations ( indoor or outdoor) are more likely to result in infection.

    The testing Protocol to start camp:
    Upon arriving at the team facility for the first time, players and team employees will be required to test negative twice before being allowed in. Basically, you show up on Day 1, take a test, go home, then show up on Day 2, take a test, go home, and if both come back negative, you can go into the building and get to work.

    If he breaks his legs,,,he is out. If, by chance, he infects the entire QB room, they are out.
    If the testing, masks, social distancing, continuous cleaning of equipment all fail then yes that could happen.
    Drew has been practicing with his teammates why aren’t they all getting affected?

    Your scenario is based on if the qb gets it. He the. Is out two weeks. What if he breaks his leg and he is done for the year? NFL teams have to adapt, and losing players happens.

Then what? Use the emergency QB and grab a few rejects from the trash bin. Not very entertaining to watch.

    The German soccer league may have been successful, but the MLS had two entire teams have to withdraw because a majority of the players and coaches got COVID. I want football like everyone else, I just don’t want to settle for mediocre football

    So, my brother in law played for the Broncos and had to retire due to injury. I asked him what his thoughts are on this whole restart thing. In a nutshell, he would have been comfortable playing in his early career. But later, when there’s a wife and kids involved, there’s more hesitation. Not because he doesn’t trust himself, but can he trust other young millionaires to follow strict protocols. Most will follow those rules, but there’s always a few who won’t.

    It looks the owners and union are going to make a deal on testing, which will probably get them over the hump to a season.
