    Jamal Adams + 4th rounder to Seahawks.

    two first-rounders + Bradley McDougald to Jets. I am still deciding, as a Seahawks fan, how I should feel about this.

    Alex Smith cleared to play. I think the Chargers should get him (trade for him), and then compete for a Super Bowl. No, Herbert isn't ready, and Taylor isn't good enough.

    Dan Snyder got outsmarted. Or rather, his staff did.

    TL;DR, somebody else already applied for trademarks on every usable name. Including "Washington Football Club". The article linked is pretty funny though, I recommend reading it anyway.

    IF baseball is any indication, there's no way there's going to be a football season until there's a vaccine.

    The weird thing is baseball should have had less risk, unless they're congregating in the dugouts.

    There has been talk/rumors of players going to casinos and strip joints (for the food!)...players told they need they need to be more responsible in their off time. This needs to be stressed to the trainers and staff as well.

    when the travel they are mixed with the general public. Only way it will work is to create a bubble, like the NBA or play in Canada like the NHL.

    Packers, instead of having all squads (offensive lineman, running backs, receivers, etc) meet in different areas of the gym, are having to meet in completely different rooms. Eating and showering at different times. It's like running around on the first day of school where you dont know where to go and have to follow a schedule on a sheet.

    What happens to a team when the virus wipes out the entire quarterback squad? It's been suggested every team have a QB isolated off site for that situation. Doesnt practice with team, but has been in all the meetings (virtually), knows the playbook, etc.

    Exactly. I'm just waiting for something to happen half way through the season and having several teams start getting wiped out and the NFL will be thinking "Uhm... okay what now"?

    Earl Thomas cut by Nevermores after altercation with another safety. I can only say that that incident must have been more the straw that broke the camel's back than the cause.

    Literally EVERYONE on the 49ers is hurt :shake:

    I'd joke that its time to start pulling fans out of the stands to be subs, but... can't do that cause there are no fans in the stands :lol:

    Oh well, there's always next season...
