    Just so I understand the plan is as follows:

    RATBIRDS - suppose to play Thursday, switched to Sunday now switched to Tuesday unless more RATBIRDS test positive. So maybe a game Tuesday.

    Washington - who played as scheduled Thursday has a 10 day period before our game next Sunday. We maybe play Tuesday then get 4 days to play the team with 10 days rest.

    No one in the Organization sees this as a problem? Ok just wanted to check.

    It's unfortunate, but we were going to play a Sunday-Thursday game anyway. Now it's just shifted to Tuesday-Sunday. I don't think the Football Team will have a tremendous advantage by getting 10 days rest. It would be nice to be fresher for the game, but days between games should be the least of our worries.

    A potentially bigger issue is if more Steelers start popping up with Covid will the league push back our games or force us to play undermanned. 0 consistency so far from the league.

    We’ll be the first team to be forced to forfeit a game due to COVID. We’ll win the SB with an 18-1 record, with our only loss coming from the league’s only COVID forfeit. The ‘72 Dolphins will pop open champagne while we lose a shot at football immortality due to the league’s inconsistency. That’s how it will go down.

    The Ratbirds "POSITIVE" COVD-19 test results are the first positive thing to ever come out of Baltimore. Just sayin.

    From what I've read, the differences were caused by the confidence of the league to the teams containment of the spread. In the SF game, they were, in our game they still aren't and this Tuesday game may change again if the Rats keep having their Rats popping positive. This whole thing sucks. I will agree that there is inconsistency by the NFL if you put out a statement to all teams regarding the consequences of not following protocols and possible forfeiting games and then don't follow through. THis is what happens when there is a monopoly in this area of entertainment/ sports and you have to endure not having any other options but to go along.

    I’m definitely concerned about Washington. With Smith now at the helm and that pass rush they’re more formidable than their record indicates. And throw in the fact that they’re plenty motivated being in contention for their division, that matchup is no cake walk by any stretch.

    Conspiracy theorists think there is a special anti-Steeler room in NYC, filled with conniving lawyers and retired referees. They work tirelessly to make our lives hell.

    Especially if a chunk of our Dline is out. Gibson looks pretty good.

    I wouldn't take them lightly they are leading their division now, pending what the Eagles do. Every game is a playoff game if your in the NFC East.

    Gibson seems like a good back Terry McLauren is a good WR. Plus Alex Smith has won a lot of games in the league.

    Plus throw in getting 10 days to prepare and rest for us, while we get 4, benefits them a big advantage.

    Don't forget replay-booth officials and camera crews/video production teams.

    For those of you with experience in south Florida, the NFL is just Jai alai with a budget.

    COME ON VEGA!! QUIT DOGGING IT!!

    People actually thinking the NFL has some conspiracy against the Steelers is hilarious. It proves how whiny and pathetic the every day schmoe has gotten.

    Just shut the (bleep) up and deal with it sweetie. Life ain't perfect sometimes. Sometimes you can't have everything the way you want. People who are "broke" still have iPhones and cars. That's how entitled Americans are.
