Florio posted today that he believes unvaxed players who contract Covid should not receive game checks if they go on the reserve list. I think this whole thing is going to be very combustible as the season comes upon us. I also read that the NFL wants 85% vax rate for a team to be considered a full go in terms of no protocols. To me, that seems like a big ask for a new vax and all. I am not sure many teams will reach that but I guess we'll see. I know the coaches are getting it because they don't want to lose access.

Agree 100% with Mazz. Who gives a shit what Florio's OPINION is in this matter?

Florio doesn't know what he doesn't know. Maybe it should depend on why they didn't get vaccinated. This isn't cut and dried.
Some people can't be vaccinated for a variety of legitimate medical reasons. Religious beliefs are real for some. Ignorance or fear? Not so real.

I agree Chevs. This is one of Florio's more damning takes IMO. This is not cut and dry as you say as there are a lot of considerations for so many to get vaccinated. To penalize a player for contracting the disease as a punishment for not getting vaxed seems barbarian to me and dare I say fascist? Just awful on so many levels. No one cares what he thinks on football much less this important health issue.

Best 1st round pick for every draft slot for the last 15 years.
Pats drafted 2 such players.

21. 2012 New England Patriots: EDGE Chandler Jones, Syracuse​

Jones was one of the NFL’s true iron men prior to his injury-plagued 2020 campaign. From 2012 to 2019, he averaged 915 snaps per season and nearly 58 pressures. He has a knack for troubling even the NFL's best tackles thanks to his prodigious length.

25. 2012 New England Patriots: LB Dont’a Hightower, Alabama​

Hightower’s physicality and blitzing prowess have been integral to the Patriots' success since he came into the league in 2012. His 191 pressures over that span are the most of any off-ball linebacker in the NFL.

Chris Sims top 40 QB's for 2021. He has Cam at 20 and obviously he does not have Jones very high becuase he has not played at 30th. He is only up to 17 with the reveal.


Here was his top 40 list before last year 2020.
