    Sorry about your mother 86ward but lets not derail this with more anti vax and politics stuff. You and Bigbunch can talk about it in private messages.

    Goes for everyone.

    Yeah this might be true for a good opponent. I see no reason to bust out the tricks for Detroit.

    I'm not saying You, or pointing 2 anyone specifically. I'm saying I know a lot of people in the World, and I'm sure You do also....that would root for anything just 2 say they were correct about something. You know this is true.
    Again this wasn't pointed at anyone...it was a generalization.

    Basing your health decisions on anecdotal evidence is a terrible idea.

    I agree with you to some extent. I wish Mason was getting first team reps all week long, but as some others have said in the past should always prep through the week as if they were the starter. Every QB2 in the league is snap away from getting in the game. I wish Mason well and believe he is capable of winning this game. I just wish he had the full set of skilled players around him today.

    I'll say one thing, Ben being out certainly increases my interest level in this game.

    Not that I'm not interested in any game, but you get what I mean. A mid-season matchup against the hap-challenged Lions generates no extra excitement or anticipation. With Ben out and a chance to MR my interest goes up considerably, even though I think he's nothing more than a marginal backup, I still want to see how he does.

    I hope you are wrong on this. I'm sure the first series or two will be just getting him comfortable, but I hope they let him play to his strengths. If the line holds up, I do think Canada's play calling could play to Mason's strength more than Ben's. Regardless, if Mason connects on a few longer throws where Ben hasn't with consistency the game will change completely.

    As can people who previously had it.

    Neither vaccine nor "natural immunity" are 100% effective.
    That's why a bunch of strategies are suggested (vaccines, masks, social distancing, healthy diets, etc.) to make the odds as favorable as possible, rather than doing nothing or only one thing.

    Which is what the Lions are expecting also. Everyone is expecting Harris to get the ball on the first play. I'd like to see Rudolph go deep that first play. It would be totally unexpected and the defense can be caught flat-footed.

    I honestly think this game isn’t gonna give us a better look at our QB’s but more of a tell of what kind of line we have. This will show us how much of a decline Ben has had this season or has it been the line that has made him play down.

    I’ve had GameDay on for about an hour now and have not seen one mention of Ben out, but when Rogers had covid that is all I seen.

    Im wondering who else was exposed to Ben or who ever gave it to Ben. Mason wasn’t in the same meetings ? You don’t usually hear about 1 person testing positive. It’s usually multiple people and will spread to others quickly.

    We have seen an uptick in positive cases in my town because of the interaction of school age children. Small town with one elementary school one middle school and one high school so there is a lot of potential there. My kids got their flu shot on Friday so hopefully we don't have that hanging our heads. I'd be willing to bet Ben came in contact through his kids. Easiest way to get it I think.

    Damn but it was hard for me to stay out of it! Man, I really wanted to reply to a few of the political posts. It would be cool if TSF had a politics forum.
