    I’ve reached a point where I no longer believe we can talk about upcoming sports seasons and avoid this pandemic. I believe it’s a false choice to think otherwise. The idea threads can just disappear when they cross some imaginary line is not appealing to me especially if I’m interested in the ongoing discussion. So I choose to take leave rather than get stressed about it. Assuming I survive this thing I’ll be back. If not it’s been great fun. Try to make sure you don’t get so obsessed with this virus that you forget to live your life. Take care. Keep safe.

    Unfortunately there isn't much to talk about football right now

    Yep, it's a definite holding pattern. By now we'd have some OTAs or workouts to discuss, and would be getting geared up for training camp in a matter of weeks. We'd talk about who was going, what days, what they wanted to watch...

    Now we're hoping for a watered down product just to be televised.

    Hope everything works out Harry, and we see you soon.

    I don't disagree with Harry, but I find it easier to get through the day by pretending that there will be a PS. And if there is, this is what I'll be looking for:
    1. Where we'll be playing Isaiah Simmons (what position)?
    2. The improvement in KM's game, especially not taking sacks, when he had time to get rid of the ball.
    3. Have we learned how to defend the TE's?
    4. Are PP, Alford and Murphy an above average CB group?
    5. Do we have a 'second' pass rusher?
    6. Who will be our two biggest surprises from TC (one good, one bad)?

    Hope to read what others think.

    Harry, threads don't disappear, once they get too political, they are moved here:

    We all have our own unique ways of dealing with stress and unpleasantness.

    Stay well, Harry. And if you have a change of heart, we look forward to staying in touch.

    I don't get the big deal to navigate to another area of the message board.

    Can someone help me here?

    I would guess the frustration stems more from threads derailing from pure football discussion as it pertains to the issue.

    Ultimately we crash into something someone takes personal each time, and we don't keep to the topic. I'm guilty of this.

    I see no way we can have a season. Sure, it will be initially decided by money to attempt doing so but it will also be prevented by money due to the law suits for someone, anyone getting infected, when attempting this

    I don't know why u guys are so negative about
    I'm from Europe, we have been hit by the virus 30/40 days earlier, then since June all the soccer games( with a new schedule) are played
    Yes, no crowd, and it can look weird for u, but games are played
    The few Players who has been infected previously are healthy now and they are playing, and some of them are playing well

    If the season starts it won't go very far before it all falls apart
