  2. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

The Big Ten says it is prepared to both play sports and also prepared not to play sports. As a society, we again find ourselves in a tough spot with this virus. So again we must seek the wisdom and guidance of the essential oil consultants and 60 pound overweight guys with AR-15s strapped to their chests who all descended on the statehouses a couple months ago and demanded the states “reopen.”
  3. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    No question that the draft next year is going to be utterly effed up by all this. IMHO it’s an open question whether it happens at all.

  5. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    Makes you wonder if they will grant players, who might have needed this season, another year of eligibility? Subsequently I wonder about the impact to the NFL draft. For teams in rebuild mode, that scenario would be problematic.
  6. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    A Michigan podcaster who is well-connected said 3 or 4 schools in the big ten don’t want to play. Michigan is considering a home and home series with 3 or 4 big ten teams, including Ohio State.

    Ohio State suspended all voluntary workouts yesterday. BTW the workouts aren’t actually voluntary, they’re just called that. Must have been too many positive tests.

    To Army’s point:
  9. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    Again, hoping and praying for the football season to go off, even with little to no fans. However, the amount of contact and closeness of the players is vastly different than the other sports and their participants. Looking at the current outbreaks among college programs like Ohio State and North Carolina are more of what I would expect at the pro level. I just don't see how they stop the spread of the virus in those close quarters and I fear the impact would be massive for a team that is forced to quarantine players that test positive. Could you imagine a miracle season where we make it to the Super Bowl and Burrow is leading the charge, only to test positive the night before the game ?? Finley would then be the starter and there goes most any chance of winning that game. Worst case scenario ?? Sure, but completely feasible.
  10. AJ Green is fully on board

    I think it will all come down to performance this season. If he’s healthy and still productive at a high level, they’ll get something done next year. Of course, this being the Bengals we’re talking about here, it also wouldn’t surprise me to see them let AJ, Ross and Mixon all walk in 2021.

    NASCAR has been back. Horse Racing is back and in some markets never left (now they are entertaining allowing fans). MLS just returned last nigh. MLB, NHL, and NBA are getting ready to return. College Sports due to different leadership in each conference and institutions AND the athletes are supposed to be students which may or may not be on campus. Different dynamic vs. professional sports. Power 5 College football and basketball brush closely with professional sports.
  12. AJ Green is fully on board

    So AJ Green. They have 6 more days to work a long term deal out with him. I haven't seen much new concerning an extension and at this point am not expecting one. I would rather see him continue his time here in Cincinnati with Burrow beyond 2020, but I get the reason he gives the team pause.

    I appreciate you keeping the home fires burning AMPHAR !!! Wish I shared your positivity...
  14. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    I had forgotten that it kept track of those things. Early on in this board's history, we use to make a pretty big deal of those milestones. Fast forward 16 years and I had completely forgotten about it. Had I been thinking, I would have had something more positive to say. Makes me feel old thinking about being in my 30's and single when I started posting here. Now 50, married, 2 kids and retired from the Army, while working on another career. I love this board !!! Thanks Hoosier...

    There will be feetsball.

    Congrats on post number 25,000 Army!
  17. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    Been saying it for a while now... This season is not looking good.
  18. Last week

    Ivy League cancelled its season today. First Division 1 circuit to throw in the towel.

    There goes Bobby Hart.
  21. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    Well if Ross stinks up the place, my next plan will be for Myles Brennan (LSU QB) to suck in 2020 and in turn his WR's don't have the stellar season they did last year with Burrow. Ja'Marr Chase will still go top 10, but maybe Terrace Marshall Jr. won't require a 1st or 2nd round pick.
  22. Let's have a talk about the offensive line

    I think they’ve denounced the supposed interest in Larry unfortunately. The secret sauce behind the line post Whitworth was getting Dalton in Shotgun and a pre snap read that Andy aim and fire. Any defense no matter their ability to rush the passer IF they decided or could take that dynamic out it was a feast on the QB. That’s exactly what we saw week 1 vs Seattle. For whatever reason Seattle was content to keep the same scheme with the easy read (pointed out in broadcast). Probably because the NFL doesn’t practice enough in preseason. That was our best outing of the year. Late in the year we saw a very poor Dolphins pass rushing team tee off on Dalton and overall bad offensive day until the last minute of the game. Without substantial improvement across the board individually it could get ugly.
  23. 2020 Offseason Roster Moves

    As stated many times the issue with Ross is health. Then consistency. Then Dalton. I think talent is there. His career path (not game) reminds me of Warrick and TJ. If he can get past the landmines of being injured that makes it easier to be consistent and then if you have a QB that can cash it in when you’ve done your job. My guess even with limited playing time Dalton missed him a dozen times on chunk plays. Dalton hits him just 2 or 3 more times the perception about him changes. or he could easily be what he has been and they move on.

    Speaking of losing weight, my primary care recently pointed out my weight gain over the past handful of years. I told her after a career in the Army, I stopped exercising and bought a house at the corner of "Fat and Happy". She laughed for a minute and plainly told me she thinks I need to move. WTF ?!?!
  25. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    She’s good. Her political statement consisted of ten sentences that all began with “I”, then she rang a bell and destroyed “God Bless America.” Game, set, match.
  26. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    OK, I went back and re-read my woke antifa SJW handbook, and I can’t find the part requiring S&M and bondage. Not that I have any problems with that, but I’m going to need a list of approved sustainable toy manufacturers and a course on acceptable power dynamics vis a vis race, gender and income level. Also is this going to be part of the next round of public marches because if so I need to lose some weight fast.
