NFL 2021 Week 9 Thread

Big news is that Aaron Rodgers tested positive for Covid and will be out of the Chiefs - Packers game. So still no Jake from State Farm Bowl (Mahomes was out with a knee injury the only previous time the two teams met in the Mahomes era, three years ago).

Thursday Night Football

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts, 5:20 p.m., Fox, NFL Network, Amazon

The Jets shocked the Bengals in Week 8, 34-31, with Mike White as their starting quarterback.

Sunday early games

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints, 11 a.m., Fox

The Saints picked up a costly win over the Buccaneers in Week 8 when quarterback Jameis Winston went down with an injury.

Denver Broncos at Dallas Cowboys, 11 a.m., Fox

Cooper Rush led the Cowboys to a big win over the Vikings in Week 8 with Dak Prescott sidelined.

New England Patriots at Carolina Panthers, 11 a.m., CBS

The Patriots suddenly look like contenders after their big win over the Chargers.

Minnesota Vikings at Baltimore Ravens, 11 a.m., Fox

The Ravens are coming off their bye week while the Vikings are coming off a tough loss to the Cowboys.

Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals, 11 a.m., CBS

These AFC North rivals both dropped tough games in Week 8.

Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars, 11 a.m., CBS

This game has the potential to be among the most lopsided games of the year.

Houston Texans at Miami Dolphins, 11 a.m., Fox

Will Tua Tagovailoa still be the quarterback for Miami?

Las Vegas Raiders at New York Giants, 11 a.m., CBS

The Raiders are coming off a much-needed bye heading into this one, while the Giants had to play on Monday night.

Sunday late games

Los Angeles Chargers at Philadelphia Eagles, 2:05 p.m., CBS

The Chargers can't afford to slip up here if it wants to stay in the AFC playoff race.

Green Bay Packers at Kansas City Chiefs, 2:25 p.m., Fox

The Packers had a mini-bye after their win over the Cardinals in Week 8.

Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers, 2:25 p.m., Fox

San Francisco looked pretty good in the Week 8 win over the Bears, but it was the Bears.

Sunday Night Football

Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Rams, 6:20 p.m., NBC

Derrick Henry's status looms large over this game for the Titans, and their season.

Monday Night Football

Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers, 6:15 p.m., ESPN

If you like a defensive battle (or a battle between struggling offenses), then this is probably your game.

Rodgers has Covid-19 and he's unvaccinated. He's out Sunday and at least 10 days.

If he lied to the team/league about his vaccination status, he should be suspended. FTR, I'm a Packers fan and he's my fantasy football QB, so I don't actually take joy in saying that...

I can see why other fan bases can't stand Rodgers because he is such a smug guy that thinks he is better and smarter than everybody else. The Packers probably knew his vaccination status but kept it to themselves. He lied to everybody else but technically didn't lie because he was "immunized" and never said he was vaccinated.

That “at least 10 days” is critical because they play on November 14.

I saw a post-game with Kyler Murray the other day, and I assume he was unvaccinated because he was wearing a mask, but I don’t recall seeing that with Rodgers. I don’t watch many of those, though—just what pops up on highlight reels.

Those two words are synonymous.

Nah, he wasn't wearing on the sidelines and always did his press conferences in front of the media maskless, none of this Zoom stuff. The Packers certainly deserve criticism for making it appear he was vaccinated when he was not.

Yeah sounding like the Packers and Rodgers are in some deep shit because he has been violating protocol.

As Albert Breer put it, at least Wentz and Cousins owned up to their decisions. The subterfuge shit with Rodgers just reinforces why a lot of people hate him.

Also the Ruggs thing is horrible. More than twice legal limit, going 156 at one point, 127 when airbags deployed. He also had a gun.

Saquon Barkley also tested positive for Covid

He didn't wear a mask during in-person post-game and mid-week interview sessions, which looks to be a violation of league protocols.

He is also supposed to wear a mask on the sidelines I think. At least that is what some are saying.

And the crash victim was only 23. I hate this story.

There's a lot about this that isn't making sense. According to the ESPN report, he asked the league over the summer to consider him vaccinated from an "alternate treatment", which was denied. If that's true, then in makes no sense that he and the Packers haven't been fined/punished all along for his approach to press conferences. All anyone from league office would have to do is watch one and see that he wasn't following protocol.

JFC.

Usually in these situations, I wonder why the person can't get an Uber or taxi - particularly in a city like Vegas where it is so easy. But this asshole clearly has no regard for the well being of others to begin with.

Rodgers . Notice how he uses “immunized” for himself and “vaccinated” for others.

Yeah, it wasn't one of these situations:

Driving recklessly and under the influence of alcohol was the intention all along, it was not just to get home safely after a night of over indulging.

I don't know if it's a league thing or if this is up to each team, but I know the Cowboys have a ride service for players 24h a day. They don't even need a taxi/uber.

Rodgers is an ass and should be suspended for lying/violating covid protocol.

And this isn't like he was speeding in the boonies, that was Rainbow between Flamingo & Tropicana. Very central LV. Close to Spring Valley Hospital. Totally beyond comprehension. What a disgrace.
And not only did he kill the 23 year old girl, she had her dog with her as well.
Will be interesting to see what sort of a tribute to the victim they choose to do at the next home game.

I am pretty sure I remember reading or hearing the league has a car service available for all players.

Car service is irrelevant here. When you're driving at 156, you're not trying to get home, you're showing off your car.

He just swept his life away up under the Ruggs. Also, Rodgers is looking like a moron in his situation.

Would it even be in good taste to do that? Real question there. I mean, Roman Polanski didn't want a "sorry for your loss" card from Charles Manson's parents, ya know?

Re: NFL 2021 Week 9 Thread

The fact that his girlfriend was in the car makes it likelier that he was showing off.

As if it wasn’t shitty enough, the fact that the victim had her dog in the car adds an extra pang of humanity.

I expect the Raiders to make a large donation toward drunk-driving awareness.

Of course Rodgers is getting some “coaches and players lie to the media all the time!” defenders. But sorry, that’s not the same thing as lying to the league and breaking rules.

Except "immunized" is a synonym, and he used it in response to the question "are you/have you been vaccinated", and he said "yeah, I've been immunized." There's no wiggle room there to assert that he didn't technically lie, he answered the question yes, then used a synonym. That's a yes. And a lie.

Their "natural" immunity, which is a laugh in itself, is not the same as being vaccinated.
