    That's a good point. They do have a responsibility to provide a relatively safe environment to play in

    Technically, I don't think they'd have any liability. I can't imagine you'd be able to sue the NFL if you got hypothermia for going to a playoff game in nothing but shorts and body paint. I think it's more about A) fans buying tickets B) fans living so that they can keep buying C) not losing even more fans because they seem heartless.

    Thank you for the link. I thought I covered that already since he was explaining the difference in numbers was the steps being taken in the U.K. I have no idea if he's right or not, I was just explaining the source of the numbers. But a quick look, this virus is expected to kill 1-2% of people, so 20,000 means somewhere between 1 and 2 million people would be infected, which isn't crazy unfortunately. The current death rate in the U.K. is 5.15%, only 400,000 people would need to be infected for 20,000 to be hit at that rate. It could also be accounting for health care overload that would heighten the death rate 2-3 times over. The 500,000 would likely include the overwhelmed health care system but it would be 25-50 million if not. The U.K. has somewhere in the realm of 66 million people, so it would be 40-75% of the population. At the current death rate, only 10 million people would need to be infected to top 500,000 deaths. The actual worldwide death rate is sitting at 4.64% right now, but Italy is unquestionably affecting that. It's at 3.64% without accounting for Italy. 13.74 million infections are needed at that rate. I hope you guys handle it better than us. The more I think about this the more I question the feasibility of a football season. Only read the spoiler if interested in my shallow and depressing analysis.

    That was the high mark projection from an Imperial College professor in the UK without social distancing or other preventative measures. His forecast is about 20,000 dead with the measures now being taken. You'll to have forgive Americans for not differentiating between the UK and England, we suck at geography.

    U.S. has the most cases in the world. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html

    This. The virus itself, with proper treatment, has a death rate in 1-2% range. However, the death rate without proper treatment jumps to the 5-6% rate. The mitigation efforts being taken are to slow the spread of the disease to keeps hospitals from being overwhelmed so people that could live with proper treatment can get it. The vaccine is a year away, probably a couple months more than that. Still, that does not mean the country is expected to survive like this that long. By slowing the spread until the hospital capacity is increased, more ventilators and masks etc..., and more tests are available then we can also cut the death rate. I don't expect things will be completely back to normal for a year, but things should be more normal. On the topic itself. I'm not sure if there will be a season either, but I don't think we're there yet.

    Washington has really been hit hard. They had a concession stand guy last week as well. https://sports.yahoo.com/xfl-seattle-dragons-concessions-worker-tests-positive-coronavirus-centurylink-field-covid19-003525196.html

    QB Index: Ranking every quarterback to start a game in 2019

    That's why I went on to explain the way they created the list that ties were bound to happen. A tiebreaker in this case would have the effect of diminishing 1-3 writers' opinions. Frankly, the easiest way around this would have been to use five people, but they wanted an out.

    QB Index: Ranking every quarterback to start a game in 2019

    I'd assume they would actually choose a winner in that case. If they didn't, then the likely follow up would be them splitting the combined first and second place prize among you and @Don Corleone , thus eliminating the second prize. I personally don't like the list. Since they made it by having four writers rank the QBs and then averaging the numbers, ties will happen. Bhanpuri: 2 | Blair: 2 | Filice: 1 | Parr: 1 for Jackson. Bhanpuri: 1 | Blair: 1 | Filice: 2 | Parr: 2 for Mahomes. So your tiebreaker would basically decide one, or two, of the writers' opinions mean more than the others. It would really defeat the purpose of the list. As for the ties, it's actually the way the NFL has always done things. Here are the top passers by TD passes this season. 1 Lamar Jackson BAL 36 2 Jameis Winston TB 33 3 Russell Wilson SEA 31 4 Dak Prescott DAL 30 5 Drew Brees NO 27 5 Jimmy Garoppolo SF 27 5 Carson Wentz PHI 27 8 Kirk Cousins MIN 26 8 Patrick Mahomes KC 26 8 Aaron Rodgers GB 26 8 Matt Ryan ATL 26 8 Deshaun Watson HOU 26 13 Tom Brady NE 24 13 Daniel Jones NYG 24 Should Brady be listed as 7th in the league simply because three players had exactly 27 TD passes and five more had exactly 26? http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorystats?seasonType=REG&d-447263-n=1&d-447263-o=2&d-447263-p=1&d-447263-s=PASSING_TOUCHDOWNS&tabSeq=0&season=2019&experience=&Submit=Go&archive=false&statisticCategory=PASSING&conference=null&qualified=false

    Ranking Wilson 2 would mean only one QB was better than him.

    Donnel Pumphrey had 4 carries for 5 yards, and caught one pass for three yards in yesterday's game.
