    I would've given him a pass if he had said the "When Todd Gurley gets it 20 times, the Rams' record was 22-1"

    It still wouldn't have translated, but at least it wouldn't have read so idiotic

    I agree, but this is the same guy that writes to himself and answers his own, “fan questions” on Social media...

    12,469 deaths in th US how many does covid have?

    We agree that death sucks, but you’re missing my point entirely. If you address what I said in context, an opportunity for civil conversation can be had. I’m all on board with following cdc guidelines and what Fauci and others in the medical profession have suggested be done. 

    Shutting everything down across the board is not the solution

    Agreed. Yeah, I tried to bring this point up in ABF, but most in there have got their political agendas crammed so far up their azzes they can’t have an intelligent discussion over it. :ninja:

    We’ve had pandemics before, and never acted like this.  Much of this country/world has become a bunch of whiny pusses.

    Thank social media and sensationalist news outlets for this. H1N1, while a different disease, didn’t cause this amount of panic. A billion infected, 500k died, and hardly anybody knew about it.

    We need nuance in this situation as we progress further, not a ‘light switch’ solution. Keeping everyone locked down and allowing the economy to tank is creating more diseases of despair and will do much more damage to us long term than this virus ever will. 
     

    The amount of ignorance going around about this disease and denial of scientific fact is disturbing

  4. Has quietly been a top 10 QB every year since he was drafted. How people pin 28-3 on him is mind boggling...

    Oh, and how are DeShaun Watson and Carson Wentz above him on that list??? The former hasn’t done too much so far and the latter is made of glass and didn’t even play in the Super Bowl they won a few years ago

  5. Over the past week I’ve been leaning more towards the side of this has been here since at least November of last year. There have been countless direct flights from Wuhan and some of the hardest hit places in Europe to this country when this started spreading overseas and we just started tracking our infections in March. I too work with some folks that are very confident that they had this in November/December. No way in **** this just got here. 
     

    Media has also been very irresponsible during this whole thing. It’s scary that what I’m hearing from doctors that are reading the literature from medical journals about this disease and what the media is reporting are on far different ends of the spectrum. A lot of doctors and scientists have been more cautiously optimistic about all this and the media makes it sound like the sky is falling, only reporting on the absolute worst of this disease. If that isn’t sensationalism at its finest, I don’t know what is. 
     

    I’m still going to be wearing a mask when going out for groceries or something like that and using sanitizer, but I think there is going to be some information coming out on this virus sooner rather than later showing this wasn’t as bad as we were initially led to believe. But we won’t know the extent of anything until testing (specifically antibody testing) is ramped up. 
     

    That being said, I think there will be football played this season
