    What If??

    Given the ongoing dire predictions concerning Corona 19 and whether there will really be an NFL season, what happens to veteran and rookie contracts going forward. If I was an owner I would honor those under contract , but would be hesitant and take a wait an see with the draft choices possibly at risk of losing them or having them go back into the 2021 draft.
    Just sitting at home going crazy and my mind is wandering. What say you?/

    I'd say this is a moot point.

    Because we're playing in 2020.

    Dude if Corona lasts till then, 6 Months away, I think we will all have bigger concerns than money. Corona is only a month or so and it has infected so many already just imagine in 6 months. IT MIGHT BE THE COLLAPSE OF EVERYTHING WE KNOW...
    ďIím so tired of LeíVeon," DeCastro told reporters (h/t ESPN's Jeremy Fowler ([url]https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/1038909446146203649[/url])) after Sunday's game. "Iím so tired of it. Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    Plenty of people have survived the virus. They are not telling you about that end of the story. I heard yesterday that at least 92,000 have had it and are over it. Pull it up on CNN.

    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. So why delay the inevitable?

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.

    I would not honor those contracts.
    I would possibly consider a small payment to allow for basic necessities to live for the lowest paid ones.
    You can't expect the owners to fork over 200 million with no source of income to offset that.
    Players don't need 5-30 million to buy groceries.
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and 25% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    Where’s my panic emoji?

    I’m not a doctor but my gut, based on what I’ve read, is this could be a seasonal virus. China is already seeing a downturn in cases. Who knows though and a vaccine is still several months away.

    I think ours will last much longer. Lots infected but over a longer period of time.
    I can see no football this year really.
    Maybe a shortened season.

    Fearmongering and negativity get attention

    I guess that explains some posters here

    Yep. We can, as a people, survive the coronavirus disease. However, our economy may have a hard time surviving all the shutdowns due to the coronavirus. We're headed for recession.

    It’ll be short recession, not like 2008. It will recover nicely by the end of the year.
