    It's all about matchups. Steelers do not have an answer for Kelce. Steelers can whip any NFL team except the Chiefs.

    Other teams didn't have an answer for him, either, but the Raiders beat them and the Panthers nearly got them already this season.

    That's true and where the loss of Bush hurts so much but they do have an answer for pretty much every other player not named Mahomes. Both teams are going to get their own and it'll simply come down to exploiting weaknesses, and as good as Mahomes is, the Chiefs have more. So it's going to be either the Steelers make a ton of mental mistakes, which they haven't done this year, or Mahomes or bust. I like Pittsburgh's chances, especially if they can get the bye.

    Disagree. What was the point? To make an example of a team that made a simple error in judgement? The real answer was to let Denver take their beat down because they are a non playoff team anyway and it's another step toward fulfilling NFL TV contracts. If they really wanted to punish Denver or Baltimore, then they would have them forfeit. But the TV money is more important than putting a competitive game on the field. I hope their advertisers took a bath on that game.

    I wonder how and when the Ravens will travel to Pittsburgh? Stadium to stadium is a 3 hr 48 min drive. It would make more sense to drive than fly. Plus I’m not sure you want all of them in a plane together. A bus sounds equally bad. Have everybody drive their own car? And when? Today and put them in a Hotel? Would a hotel accept them? Do you want the team together any longer than need be? In and out tomorrow?

    How do they normally travel?

    At this point the game should just be forfeited and the Steelers collecting both their own paychecks and dividing up the Rats cash to be split among Steelers players. Game should have been played Thursday Night as scheduled with affected players missing the game on the injury list. This whole matchup was handled ridiculously by the NFL especially after seeing the Donkeys playing shorthanded yesterday. Rodger Gooddell should be fired if the owners had any balls.

    Our 10-0 record will be nothing but an * at the end of the season. Just go ahead and Crown Mahomes another Title like they want to do anyways.

    They couldn't play Thursday with players still testing positive. The NFL's response to this mess hasn't been perfect, but they weren't wrong to push the game back. I just don't see how they can play tomorrow night.

    The donkeys completed 1 pass in the game. The league pretty much determined the outcome of that game before it even started with their BS.

    Agreed, but I'm not sure what else they were going to do. The policy all along has been that games would only be postponed due to health concerns, not roster issues. You can certainly argue that it is a stupid policy and that game is a perfect example of why it was such a bad decision. The interesting thing was Drew Lock taking responsibility for being careless during meetings. Even Vic Fangio put the blame on his quarterbacks after the game.

    How would forfeiting be better for anyone? At least Denver got a chance to go out there and put up a fight. Obviously they didn't stand much of a chance, but the game still got played. That's clearly better than having to forfeit.

    They should have picked up a fa qb somewhere and practiced as much as they could have instead of just using a wr to play qb. Or both. They had a few days prior to playing the game Sunday. Had move by the donkeys. :cool:

    I think you have to wait five days when joining a new team before you can play?

    If you think that was really an option, you're not paying attention.

    Practice cancelled again for the Ravens. I don't see them getting this game in. Say goodbye to a playoff bye.....

    Is it only positive test? If so the 49ers should have gamed the system like the Ravens and just floated one more positive to get the game pushed back? or like the Titans did some random nobody on the PS.

    I remember the Ravens had somebody play with covid the 1st Steelers game and it's still floating around the organization weeks later? Seems like pure negligence and grounds for forfeit and fine/loss of draft pick to me.

    Of course this game isn't happening.. The Ravens have done everything in their power this far to make sure it doesn't. They will float one more positive test to seal the deal.

    What’s next for the Ravens?
    Their Governor tells them their stadium is closed?

    Its a big mess that is for sure. Still think they make the Ravens play tomorrow. If they just made Denver play with no QB, they will force the hand here.

    But, teams better prepare to bubble..it's bound to happen.

    I think they unleash their final weapon... At their next press conference. They go see even Steelers fans think we should postpone this game to Week 18 when we are healthy *cough cough* I mean Covid free. *stone cold music plays* Glenn walks out in his dusty Sepulveda jersey. He goes on about how the Ravens have done everything correctly and the league has handled this perfectly fine. Any questions? Reporter goes thanks for showing up Glenn but where's your mask? Clearly flustered and with no excuse storms off the stage.

    I'm surprised the NFL doesn't automatically appoint Kapernick to every team as a emergency reserve.

    They aren't going to make them play if the outbreak is still happening. I don't know why this is so hard to understand. It's not about missing players, it's about letting the game happen and then suddenly both teams have a large outbreak as a result. The league needs to ensure nobody else is positive before they allow the game to happen.

    C'mon, put up a fight. They had no chance, no chance in hell to even be competitive against New Orleans. Not better than forfeiting, if anything it's a parallel situation. I imagine there are players on the Broncos that were more worried about getting paid, but their fans got the short end of the stick if any even tuned in, and that is indefensible by the NFL.
