Stephon Gilmore has Covid

 52 replies

Stephon Gilmore has officially tested positive for Covid-19.

Gilmore played 100% of the defense snaps against the Chiefs on Monday night. That means that all of our skill players would likely be at risk for exposure IE Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce, Mecole Hardman, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Demarcus Robinson, etc. And if that wasn’t not bad enough…

I am beyond words right now. If Mahomes gets Covid…. I just can’t okay?!

We are hoping and praying for that not to happen and for this stupid disease to go away already. Additionally, that everyone currently infected makes a speedy recovery.

If the Titans are forced to forfeit to the Bills, and we have to play on Thursday against an extra rest Bills team, I am going to Hulk smash the league offices.

Doesn’t look the possibility of a forfeit was added to the CBA until yesterday according to a tweet on the scroll bar. Makes a forfeit VERY unlikely, given that it wasn’t a rule when the alleged behavior took place. Besides, they were outside doing something akin to a walkthrough. It’s pretty unlikely it contributed to spread.

The Titans are going to get the books that the Patriots should have had thrown at them for SpyGate. Draft pick losses, forfeit games and some lovely fines.

I’m honestly most worried about Andy Reid getting it. If Patrick has it, there’s a good chance Andy gets it. Thinking of Patrick’s pregnant fiancé getting it makes me feel a bit sickly as well.

Apparently they’ve been sleeping in separate bedrooms (Mahomes and Brittney, not Mahomes and Reid)

I would hope that Mahomes and Reid are in separate rooms (and separate houses) as well… I know the players like Reid, and Reid likes the players, but I don’t think either likes the other that much.

On a positive note, the Vikings played the Titans the week before the Titans Covid breakout and the Vikes have had zero positive tests as far as I have heard

Two more Titan players tested positive TODAY. Same things is going to happen with the Pats, maybe us too.

Time to just shut the season down folks.

The white house situation and now the nfl has really showed us that extensive testing alone is not sufficient.

I think the NFL needs to come to the realization that a full 16 game season is not realistic. Canceling the season isnt going to happen.

8 game season, with two weeks between games?

Since they have played 4, you could do that with a 12 game season

Oh, yeah for this season. If we were to start the season over, an 8 game season with 2 weeks in between would have been manageable given the protocol.

Is not sufficient for what? They have a low infection % because their protocols are working. This isn’t a bubble, cases were going to happen with this many people spending this much time in close quarters together. They catch them, they quarantine them, we move on. Remember, just because you test positive doesn’t mean you are contagious.

Just because you test positive doesnt mean youre contagious? a) what quack are you listening to b) are you the tester for this theory?

Extensive testing isnt sufficient to ensure that the virus isnt spreading. Just because people are testing negative doesnt mean they havent already been infected and may test positive several days later.

I’m listening to the WHO in this case. I assume you are one of the anti-science types, that prefers fear porn to facts?

According to the WHO:

Detection of viral RNA does not necessarily mean that a person is infectious and able to transmit the virus to another person. Factors that determine transmission risk include whether a virus is still replication-competent, whether the patient has symptoms, such as a cough, which can spread infectious droplets, and the behavior and environmental factors associated with the infected individual.

Keep in mind some people test positive months after their original test. Yet all evidence suggests they are only contagious for ~10 days max around the original infection period.

So you are going to assume people who test positive aren’t contagious? You are taking this statement WAAY out of context.

Im not going to look up this statement because its quite frankly totally pointless to this situation. That being said I think they are referring to people who are testing positive many weeks after initial diagnosis.

Edit: so it is referring to people who test positive weeks after infection and is therefore totally pointless to this conversation. Thanks for your totally pointless scientific insight.

Enjoy your Q theory browsing.

I said ‘just because you test positive doesn’t mean you’re contagious’, and you flew off the deep end. Then you followed that up with saying, ‘yeah you’re right, but that wasn’t the context I was working in’. It’s odd that you agree I was right, but yet what I said was so completely egregious that you had to accuse me of being a quack and then later presumably reference Qanon. It’s almost like you hate to think, and prefer to spout nonsensical insults. Your call, but IMO a bad one.

All of the current studies point to asymptomatic carriers being substantially less contagious than symptomatic carriers both during their contagious stage and for a shorter period of time. Given that we are working with a group of people who are in the best health of a human life possible (generally speaking), it is extremely likely that we’ll have more asymptomatic carriers than an average population sample. Therefore it stands to reason that we’ll have a generally less contagious population of carriers than we would from the general population. This is good news, and gets to my original point. The testing protocols appear to be working. They are finding the cases early, isolating the carriers, and preventing excess spread.

First off I do not agree with you at all. Secondly, you still are not addressing the fact that you are bringing up some bullshit from the WHO that has absolutely nothing to do with the NFL testing protocol. Literally nothing.

Lets be honest here. I brought up the white house fucking up and you went off the rails. God forbid we point out that theres a huge outbreak at the white house and people who we assume tested negative several days ago then tested positive. Same with Gilmore today. Possibly the titans players.

The intention of my original post which you probably didnt finish once you made the assumption that I was attacking your golden god was that the nfl is probably going to have to just cancel some games when players test positive late in the week because we cant be sure that the testing is effective in catching the disease in its early stages.

My golden god is much closer to Milton Friedman than Trump. It’s almost like the narrative of reality you have in your head, doesn’t make the facts on the ground. Maybe something to explore?

I know what the intent of your OP was. The point of mine was to disagree. They are doing fine, and if no one overreacts to a few positive tests among some of the healthiest humans on the planet, they’ll continue to do fine. Keep in mind for context, that you were responding to a looney toon who was ready to shut the season down, so my disagreement necessarily included both of you.

It’s guys like Andy Reid we are worried about because he is far from one of the healthiest humans on the planet, unfortunately.

Reid HAS to be right there with those players.

We have to be cautious.
a. Don’t fucking get Andy Reid sick.
b. We don’t want to miss games or shut down the season when we are the favorites to win another SB.

Take all precautions possible, whether tsv agrees or not, regardless of how annoying they are. Relaxing on those rules, which all players and coaches agreed on to enter the season, should not be ok.

Well I’m sorry for my mistake then. I would have removed that if the edit option was still available.

I’m also sorry I implied that you disagreed with the rest of it. My mistake, tsv.

What I got from you was that you were minimizing the situation by saying something about how positives don’t necessarily mean they are contagious and I just wanted to push my thoughts that they (and we) need to take it seriously and not even think about putting another SB run in jeopardy. Again, my apologies if that is not the case.

But does it really matter if we miss a few games? I think you can just cancel games as needed. I’m willing to let this Stephon Gilmore thing play out, but if a bunch more patriots players test positive this week and god forbid Mahomes tests positive then it will be clear to me that the Pats-Chiefs game should have been postponed to week 18 or just canceled outright (not forfeited). A 14 game season is still an NFL season.
