Oh FFS. If they play on Sunday, it's going to be a joke.

All of us here in this house are Steelers fans, and we all feel the same way.

We do not like the Ravens.  But we *respect* the Ravens.  We hate what's happening to them, and hope that they, their organization, players, coaches, staff, and families are all okay.

The Ravens games are how the Steelers measure themselves.  We always enjoy beating the Ravens, but it needs to be an honest win, with both teams intact and healthy.  There is no virtue in beating a rival while he's down.

So to the Ravens and their fans, my best wishes.  Your welfare is more important than football.  Be well.

This so much.
And a Sunday game will just be a breeding petri dish of infection, it will be extremely stupid if it's not postponed.

So the two week incubation period puts it at lead-up to the Patriots game, AND they played this season's previous Covid champs the Titanics in the meantime.

Not knowing a lot about the lingering symptoms of Covid is suddenly looking to be a bit of a problem for close contact sports.

\also, interesting note, there has never been an official forfeit in NFL history

So I just read in the Post-Gazette (because the Sun is claiming I maxed out on articles despite reading...one) that the Ravens are disciplining a staff member for "actions related to the team's coronavirus cases." Wonder who that's about....

The #Ravens disciplined a strength and conditioning coach for not reporting symptoms and not consistently wearing a mask or tracking device, which may have contributed to the team's rash of COVID-19 cases, per sources.

And now you know why they at least postponed the Thursday game. Now, not only is the Sunday game against the Steelers in jeopardy but also the Ravens-Cowboys scheduled for Thursday may have to be changed.

I doubt it. Right after my last comment I googled Ravens to check; it hasn't been postponed yet, but indicators suggest it is going to be. This went up less than 10 minutes ago.

Steelers might get their bye week anyway. At this point I don't think they can shuffle the schedule around. Then again, it's the NFL, so if it's a stupid idea, they'll find a way to implement it.
 
2020-11-27 8:13:49 AM  
This will make a nice insert a game week before the playoffs makeup game.  There will be a few of those if the season isn't canceled.

It's not like the guy would've suddenly decided to all of a sudden stop violating protocols.  You're either the type of person who follows them or you're the type of person who thinks it's all a conspiracy.  Which means he would've been flaunting it ALL SEASON.

They're only caring now because it finally bit them.

Not to mention, everyone has to be willing to work with someone they know is willing violating the protocols.  Did anyone say no?  Did anyone report him?  Does this go up the chain with people covering for him?  Or did everyone just willingly go along with it.

The only way I'd feel sorry for anyone is if players reported they were uncomfortable and execs/coaches covered for him.  So if that comes to light I'll retract.  Otherwise, no.

This is probably the final nail in the coffin for the ravens season too. They were already headed in the wrong direction but this cements it as the NFL will make them at least one of the two upcoming games & they'll still be out a bunch of players.

To take away the week off the steelers earn for being the #1 seed is wildly unfair.  Whats the point of earning the #1 seed ?

To make it an 8 team playoffs is wildly unfair to the teams that were already earning their way in.

To not significantly punish ... and in fact reward...the ravens when other teams are following the rules is wildly unfair to all the teams doing it right.

Eh, a team can do everything right, or at least live up to the NFL's subpar standards, and still get and spread COVID. Games are likely happening with contagious players on the field. I think that focusing on punishing sick teams is the wrong idea.

It seems like the Ravens had a strength coach go and be an asshole and cause this. But the thing about COVID is that you can't be sure that's the cause. Could've been a different person picking it up at the same time, or two sources at the same time.

I'm wary of the NFL putting teams in harm's way and then punishing them for being harmed. Cancelling the game seems sufficient to me. Don't bother making it up at this point. Just say it didn't happen. The standings will work themselves out just fine in the end.

So 2 teams finish the season with 8 wins.

One is 8 and 7, the other is 8 and 8.

The one that is 8 and 7 finished the season on a 4 game losing streak. The one that finished 8 and 8 won its last 3.

Guess which one gets in first?
 
2020-11-27 12:39:32 PM  
I see lots of wishful thinking in this thread.

The NFL will slap the Ravens on the wrist. Like they have done for other teams this season.
Other teams have gotten in 'trouble', like the Titans and Raiders.
So far just small fines.

The NFL should have had a better system in place for managing COVID-cancelled games, certainly. But at this point, they don't. If a game doesn't get played, it doesn't get played.

Who farking cares? Steelers have followed the protocol and STILL been penalized by having to move games. They already got the bye week bumped up when they didn't want it, and now they've had a second game bumped once, with the prospect of a second time. You want to talk 'unfair', what about the team getting moved all over the place because nobody else can follow directions?

Well, that's dumb. You'd think the NFL would go by the more obvious winning percentage or games over/under .500 (so 3-0 would be behind 9-4, for instance) in a year where there was a good chance not everyone made it to 16 games.

win week 1-3 games by a combined margin of  478 to 3.
Weeks 4-17, every opponent has to "cancel" due to COVID.

at 3-0, and being most dominant in history, miss the playoffs to teams that go 7-9 but had no COVID opponent issues.

yes, seems pretty unfair to me.

How is 3-0 behind 7-9?


because # of wins determines best record, unless # of wins is a tie.


How are you so constantly and consistently wrong?  The NFL has already said that all 16 games will be played.  They will move the playoffs and the Superbowl back if needed.

There will be no teams without a full 16 game record.  The season will not end until all 16 games have been determined for each team (forfeits are still a possibility, but not a probability).

So there is no "NHL" system of counting wins.  The better record wins.  Period.  If there are tied records, then the 12 tie-breakers come into effect (none of which relies on total number of wins).
