Good Friday to you Steelers fans.
As I write this at 9am eastern, the game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers is still scheduled to be played at 1:15pm on Sunday. I wrote last night that this game either needs to be played at that time or forfeited. It’s that simple. The Ravens currently have 12 players and numerous staff that are Covid positive. ESPN is reporting that the facility is closed through Monday. As I pointed out in my article, if the San Francisco 49ers are forced to play with that many guys missing then why not the Ravens?
If you have brothers you get it. J.J., Derek and T.J. are among the most competitive sets of brothers out there. Whether it’s their game to game stats or playing checkers, these guys are relentless. I can’t help but wonder if T.J. will be a little “more motivated” after seeing his brother get a pick-six on Thursday?
Tweet of the Day… I feel your pain Trai.
It’s 8:30, and instead of being in my spot with my gear in front of the TV, I am playing scrabble with a mean game of trivial pursuit on deck…..
F U COVID!!! ??

Safety??? Oh Please
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports that the NFL will only play the game if the chance of spread is minimal and the players are safe. This is such hypocrisy. Again, I cite the 49ers’ game. Where was that “safety?”
