Please keep discussion in this thread narrowly focused on football and directly football-related issues.

 

Two Bills Drive no longer finds it appropriate to engage in COVID-19 discussion in our main discussion areas. We are a Buffalo Bills fan community and we exist to serve fans of the Buffalo Bills and the NFL. Please use other communities and venues to discuss heath-related topics including COVID-19. 

 

Information about COVID-19 is available from many globally respected sources including:

 

Uptodate     |  British Medical Journal Best Practice   |      COVIPENDIUM    |    Our world in Data

 

The pinned topic: COVID-19 - Facts and Information Only Topic, located on the Off the Wall subforum, is also a resource.   Should these not meet your needs, many other sources of information (of varied accuracy) exist.

 

Thank you!

Won’t they just come back as “false positives”?

 

according to reports on twitter, these are NOT false positives but actual positive cases

 

Also according to twitter, early contact tracing might suggest that this virus came from someone on the return flight home

It would appear from watching the players that they practice little social distancing or other precautions. I get that its not very easy to do so on the field of play but they do little on the sidelines to protect themselves which makes you think practices aren't much different. You'd have to think there's more positives coming ... 

I think the players get tested before meeting with other players.

Welp,  it was a fun season.  Talk to you guys again in March around the combine.

 

Ha. i told some friends after week 1... watch, this will be the best season since the SB teams, we'll be 12-2 or whatever and then Covid will strike and and cancel the last few games playoffs.  A very Buffalo thing to happen

Bills end up getting screwed in all of this. Titans get extra time to prepare for us. Lol. I know I'm being selfish.

Feels like a bit of over reaction thus far.  This is why they test.  The additional practice squad players and the 3 week IR are the protections.  If contained to 3 I think the games move forward.

 

I will wait until more players become positive before I worry about cancelling the season.

 

Is it good/bad they play the Bills in 2 weeks?

Agree with this 100 percent. Lets see how the things in place work before we freak out lol. 

 

I think its a good thing they play us in 2 weeks, as long as the positive players are Henry, Tannehill and Brown : )

true enough. The Falcons had it happen last week and they still were able to play to their normal standard of trash.

Depends who the players and personnel are who tested positive and how long they are out. Otherwise it doesn’t make a big difference imo

In 2 more weeks this will be a complete ***** show with teams re-scheduling and then re-scheduling the re-scheduling.

Finally get a good team after 20 years of sh!t sandwiches, and the whole thing could be threatened. I won’t overreact too much because I think the NFL has done a good job managing this,  but this is concerning. Actually, a little surprised it took 3 weeks. 

 

We'll have a good team next year too!

As others have said: this was a “when” not an “if”, so the key is how it’s handled

This is what I expect to see happen - where possible they will make adjustments to the schedule.  Move a few games around and if needed add a bye week at the end.  
 

The goal is to contain and prevent spread.  The key is when the contact occurred and are the Vikings impacted beyond today.

 

The Titans are closed through Saturday and maybe longer if more positives show up.

 

The NFL hoped to avoid, but knew this was a likely issue.  I expect they have several plans depending on the extent of the breakout and will make adjustments.  They didn’t mess with the schedule immediately- but I would not be surprised to see some minor tweaks getting announced and maybe even adding some time where only a few teams play on a weekend and getting some extra TV money to help with next years cap.

Ah there it is. Big challenge sure,  but a few years ago the bills had to practice remotely due to the big snowstorm, move the game to a monday night in Detroit, and still won by a bazillion points. And that was before everyone was used to doing everything remotely

I agree, I don't think we can get past KC this year anyways, who wants to talk about nexts years draft specifically O-Line and D-line prospects?

This will really stink having to play Tennessee coming off a week 4 bye and well rested.

Let’s take a deep breath here and start from scratch.  What’s the incubation period?  What I’m getting at is that it might be possible that the Titans picked this up after the game on Sunday (e.g., at a postgame celebration) and that it might be a “local” issue as opposed to something that affects multiple teams and players outside of a given social group.  

 

I will add this: driving through OP yesterday we saw a couple of our own guys hanging out without masks on at one of the local establishments.  People have to live, and I don’t knock them for that.  But the goal is to win the Super Bowl, and going to bars (which were very crowded, likely because of the weather) does not further that mission.  So hopefully the Titans picked this up after the game, and hopefully it’s a lesson for our own guys to double down on precautions.
