Since the lights went out and delayed the Super Bowl the last time it was played there, I think they should call it the Coleman Lantern Dome.

Nick Chubb named one of NFL's top 25 players under 25
ByKIPP ADAMS 22 minutes ago The NFL is full of young superstars who appear poised to carry the league for the next decade. On Tuesday, Pro Football Focus attempted to name the NFL's top 25 players who will begin the 2020 season under the age of 25, based on its own grading system, stats, and team impact to date. Former Georgia star Nick Chubb, now with the Cleveland Browns, made the list at No. 14 overall and third among tailbacks, behind Christian McCaffrey (No. 3) and Saquon Barkley (No. 13). The former UGA standout and Cleveland running back finished as the NFL's second-leading rusher in 2019 as Tennessee's Derrick Henry passed him with a monster game in week 17. Despite not being given the same weight of opportunity as some other backs, Nick Chubb still remains the most efficient runner in the game over his young career. This season, he finished second in the league in rushing, with 1,122 of his yards coming after contact. He averaged more than a full yard after contact than Christian McCaffrey and was second in the NFL in broken tackles (66). Chubb also had 13 broken tackles on his 36 catches out of the backfield, but he saw a fraction of the targets that the most productive receivers did at the position. Over 75 percent of Chubb's 1,494 yards came after he was contacted in 2019.
Despite running behind an offensive line that struggled mightily all season and within an offense that was dysfunctional at best, Chubb had seven games where he eclipsed the 100-yard mark and 10 games where he rushed for at least 80 yards. He averaged five yards per carry while carrying the football 18.6 times per game and scored eight touchdowns. He had a long of 88 yards.
Chubb did that coming off a rookie season where he had 996 yards rushing. If his final carry of the 2018 season hadn't been for a five-yard loss, Chubb would have two 1,000-yard showings in as many seasons, but it's important to note that as a rookie, he had just 16 carries in his first six games before Cleveland traded Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville.
What Chubb did at UGA was nothing short of remarkable. After stepping in for a suspended Todd Gurley as a freshman, Chubb rushed for 1,547 yards and 14 touchdowns as a freshman. His sophomore season was cut short due to a gruesome knee injury suffered at Tennessee in the sixth game of the year, putting his football future in doubt. But he returned less than 10 months later to carve up North Carolina in the 2016 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff game with 32 carries for 222 yards and two touchdowns.
Chubb finished that junior season with 1,130 yards and eight touchdowns before electing to return for his senior year. In his final season at UGA, Chubb piled up 1,345 yards and 15 touchdowns while helping the Bulldogs to an SEC Championship, a Rose Bowl victory in the College Football Playoff quarterfinals, and the National Championship game. He was selected by the Browns with the No. 35 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and entering his third season, he'll be playing for his third head coach and offensive play-caller in Kevin Stefanski.

Georgia out to massive Crystal Ball lead for 5-star Smael Mondon
ByJAKE ROWE 5 hours ago The coronavirus shutdown has seen Georgia land four commitments and begin trending for several other top targets based on the 247Sports Crystal Ball. It's not safe to say that the Bulldogs are in a strong position for Paulding County (Dallas, Ga.) linebacker Smael Mondon. The 6-foot-3 220-pound five-star prospect has eight Crystal Ball predictions and all of them are for UGA. Six of those eight predictions have come in the past two months.
Mondon is ranked as the nation's No. 26 overall prospect and No. 2 outside linebacker according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite. He's the No. 3 player in Georgia per those rankings.
When you look at the 247Sports rankings on their own without taking into account the two other outlets, Mondon is a little higher. He's No. 19 overall, No. 3 at outside linebacker, and No. 2 in Georgia.
The 247Sports player comparison for Mondon is Dallas Cowboys' linebacker Jaylon Smith, who played his college ball at Notre Dame. Mondon holds over three dozen offers and recently posted "sooner than later" on Twitter, indicating that he's close to a decision.
He's a two-way athlete at Paulding County, also competing in the 100m, 200m, long jump and triple jump for the track team. He's also a two-way player on the gridiron, playing running back and linebacker.
Mondon likely projects as an inside linebacker in Georgia's defensive scheme and that's a large need for the Bulldogs in this class. UGA came into the cycle needing a significant haul at defensive end, outside linebacker, and inside linebacker. It already has commitments at defensive end and outside linebacker but none thus far on the inside linebacker, a position where it didn't sign anyone in the 2020 class.
The Bulldogs currently rank No. 17 nationally in the 247Sports Composite Team rankings. They have the fewest commitments of any team inside the top 20. UGA ranks third behind Ohio State and Clemson in average rating per commitment at 94.49.

The entire point about social distancing is to flatten the curve. What you saw in NY, Italy etc was health services being run off their feet with so many sick patients. We aren't going to eradicate the virus but you can manage its impact.
Health > Money, I still have no idea how the US doesn't have a global healthcare system but thats another thing.
Anyways, around the world, social distancing has allowed many nations to flatten the curve and we are starting to get back to modified normality - we have professional sports returning in a fortnight.
I hope you guys sort it out over there.

I’m a first responder and I think most of this has been overblown. It’s never fun or good to see people dying, but this was very over exaggerated.

Well since everyone will at some point be exposed to it, and you aren't going to eradicate it any time soon....
m2Falcons got a reaction from Knight of God in 2020 NFL Draft: Analyzing the play and scheme fit of all six first-round cornerbacks
Same. He knows who the right guys are IMO.
i strongly tend to agree with his Evaluations. I’m becoming a Raiders fan to a good degree because of Mayock as the GM. I paid a good bit of attention to Raiders in weeks before draft and Funny thing this year... I managed to pick four (Muse, Edwards, Robertson , Ruggs) of the guys they drafted as ones I felt they would. I’d have had 5 if Falcons hadn’t picked Terrell at 16 before Raiders at 19.

Well our SAF group hasn’t “been RIGHT” in several seasons as it is... so there’s that

m2Falcons got a reaction from Francis York Morgan in Tony Pauline's last mock draft had:
I've also seen it mentioned that he played that game while ill with a high fever. Don't know if true but it would certainly explain why his game was off.
I do know that the Raiders fully intended to take him at #19. He was NOT going to make it past Raiders.
