Will there be a full season this year?

I certainly hope so. Missing a year of football would be the worst.

It seems the league is doing all it can to make the season happen with skipping the preseason and testing everyone all the time.

I AM READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!

And as always I must reiterate the title of this thread is a copy of Semi's 2015 thread that I've co-oped ever since. Thanks Semi.

This sucks:


Apparently Sean Peyton already had COVID in march. It's quite troubling to hear Doug caught it so close to the season starting.

At least he isn't showing any symptoms. Hopefully it will go away and he can get back to coaching soon.

Get ready for a really short season man.

You also predicted Disney would close again before I get there on the 11th. Doesn't look like that's going to happen so hopefully you're wrong about this too.

Given they aren't using the bubbles like NBA and NHL I think NFL will fail just like MLB is starting to fail. I think either the season not starting or being cancelled mid-season is inevitable. I think MLB is likely heading down the same path. 3 teams now?

That's still possible. But if everybody in Florida is sick, would they bother to close?

It's not looking likely. They just increased the capacity in the parks. While it is still far from busy, they are allowing more reservations per day than they did when they first reopened last month.

That's not a good think you know. You have seen your daily counts right? FL is one of the worst states.

I keep track:

45010
46576
48187
49350 - 7.26
50784 - 7.27
52970 - 7.29
54312 - 7.30
55411 - 8.1

(In Broward County)

I've talked about how the social distancing thing seems to be going well at the parks. I'm not too worried.

Right now would have been the Birds' first preseason game against the Colts in Indy.

Screw the Skins but after all the rehab this guy went through (at one point I think amputation was discussed) this is a heartwarming reaction from his family after learning he's cleared to get back to football.

If China hadn't tried to murder the entire world this year I would have been at the Hard Rock stadium right now watching Eagles vs Dolphins in game 2 of the preseason.

They're talking about a playoff Bubble similar to the NHL/NBA. We'll see if they make it that far.

THERE IS FOOTBALL TONIGHT!!!

Today is almost a perfect day for me. I will spend the morning in Animal Kingdom then drive home and have the start of the NFL season to watch!

Without a preseason this is the longest I (and I assume many others) have ever gone without watching any sort of NFL football. I am so ready for it to be back!

It is so very nice to be watching football right now. Not a bad game so far either.

This is interesting:


I love football so much, Roger Goodell could murder my family and I'd still watch but all the blatant politics in sports these days have led me to completely ignore the NBA this season. I never really watch much baseball so that's not really a change and hockey is the least blatant of the 4 major sports so I find it tolerable.
