  1. Hi @Hapless Bills Fan. I have a question if that's ok. Has there been a lower rate of cases vs deaths? I feel like I keep reading that test cases coming in positive recently have had a large percentage of asymptomatic subjects. Thanks!


    EDIT: Great question, ndirish1978 and I'm not sure of the answer.  

    In the US and globally, we're running about 5.1% CFR (case fatality rate), with of course a bunch of patients still hospitalized and outcomes uncertain.

    At one point I think we were running 8% CFR in the US, which was 10-13% in NYC and 3% everywhere else.



    It really can't be otherwise - early in the epidemic, you had to have flown back from Wuhan where you swore you licked a pneumonia patient to get a test.  In NYC people who had clearly covid-19 relevant symptoms but weren't critically ill were given a sheet of instructions, no test, and sent home.  Only very sick people got admitted to hospital and only hospital admits got tests.

    We have more hospital capacity now, so we can start hospitalizing and treating people before they're desperately ill, and we have more testing capacity so we can test people who have just been exposed.


    I don't think that's all of it though  - I think we have better treatment protocols, and a better handle on which existing medications are truly helpful, so people who are seriously ill have better outcomes as long as we maintain hospital capacity

    Opinion: I think the infected, asymptomatic younger people were always there, we just didn't have the testing capacity to know they were there before.

    NO, I wholeheartedly disagree.  I've seen that song and dance before.


    It only counts when the real bullets fly.  Trophies and accolades are only won on the field. 


    How many training camp HOF's came you name off hand?

    Maybe Josh should just retire now so you guys can send him to the HOF before he can even become average.



    Needlessly aggressive takes to people making positive comments about a positive thing. You two must be real joys to be around. Enjoy patting yourselves on the back for "keeping it 100" while alienating the people around you. Life's too short to pee in everyone's cereal all the time guys. There is a time for dissenting voices, this light fluff thread is not one of them. 

  3. I've heard McDermott specifically reference him out of the blue multiple times. I believe the coaching staff thinks he's the answer at the TE position and I for some reason trust their judgment on him more than I do on Cody Ford. Dunno why.

    The 2011 Seahawks only drafted CB's in the fifth and sixth round to help their secondary.  Does it matter who the players turned out to be, or did they neglect their secondary by not investing higher picks (and thus different players) in it?


    Zero logic, smug attitude. You're one of those guys who thinks, despite all evidence, that they are somehow smarter than everyone else and comes on a message board to try and pump themselves up. I'll bow out of this particular exchange.

    Yeah, they just got him Jordy Nelson, who was a star, Davante Adams, who is a star, and Randall Cobb, who was a star, all in the second round.  #WillSomeoneHelpRodgers?


    I don't get the sarcasm. They have never drafted him a skills player in the first round. That's a fact. You just trying to be super cool?

  6. This Draft coverage is complete trash. ESPN always sucks, but they suck more than usual this year. Relegating Eisen to the charity stream is asinine, he is better than every talking head on the ESPN broadcast. ESPN should tell everyone to shut up and just let Daniel Jeremiah talk. Trey Wingo is a clown who has yet to learn the English language and keeps tripping over himself. This is unwatchable.

  7. Man the panthers are really remaking the defense.


    Still some good players left. Don’t understand why Curtis weaver has dropped this far. We won’t take him l, but that’s some value. 

    guys I like At this pick

    Bryce Hall 
    Prince Tega

    Lamar Jackson

    Tyler Biadascz

    Ravens had a top 3 offense and still drafted another weapon 


    that’s how you do it. Beane and Mcd will never understand this 


    Whiny Logic - the Bills had a top 3 scoring defense and still drafted another defensive weapon. If you don't like the pick you don't like the pick. Just say you wanted offense.
