Steelers make unsuitable alternative in going by the guide with dealing with of COVID pandemic
Some people say that there is no textbook about plague, and, figuratively speaking, that is true. The NFL is a real league, however, so there is such a document in professional football. And that’s what coach Mike Tomlin and the Steelers team followed when he violently knocked down Vance McDonald on the team’s plane en route to Dallas over the weekend.
“These are not the decisions we make. It’s cut and dry, “Tomlin told a news conference Tuesday.” It’s all in line with the COVID policy set in New York by the NFL. As long as they have a problem and do not show COVID signs, they can walk away. And he was, and we were, and we never forget that. ”
This is a defense in making McDonald’s against the Cowboys.
This is not to say that it was the right choice.

Several reports that McDonald studied Monday about the best coronavirus test. He was placed on the COVID league’s reserved list. The Steelers announced Tuesday that they would add four more players, including star player Ben Roethlisberger, to the list, although Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has said he has not tested. Roethlisberger will not be allowed to participate this week and will not be able to restart the team until Saturday, for the first time.
Mr Tomlin confirmed that the agency was “working hard” to address the challenges facing COVID. Although Tomlin said he was “not very concerned” perhaps when he met a rival Roethlisberger who had little time to prepare, it’s not really good.
The term “extreme caution” is not very popular in the NFL, and this is heard in real time. Football is a violent sport. Officials of the game have tried over the past 10 years to keep the game safe, for good reason, but the boys are still being beaten.
This is not an ordinary time, however.
Since early March, since Rudy Gobert was diagnosed with COVID-19 and the NBA suspended temporarily for more than four months, we have seen coronavirus affect its prevalence in the game. It started and re-established the MLB, NHL, MLS and NWSL seasons and went on to end the NCAA Tournament with Wimbledon.
The NFL had a chance that its season was not set to begin until many other games found ways to restart the competition – including the PGA Tour, NASCAR and football matches around the world. This does not mean that they will never face difficulties. It meant that they had the opportunity to learn from these situations that others need to avoid or overcome.
And we are still seeing situations in which problems arise that are easily avoided.
McDonald did with the Steelers last Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, he showed a report of injuries as DNP – they do not – is a “disease” that was cited as a non-existent cause. His role in Sunday’s game against the Cowboys was described as “suspicious.”
Honestly, at this point it must have been quite an understatement if he had been invited to join the other Steelers on his way to Dallas.

It was a week earlier when Marlon Humphrey arrived on the Baltimore injury report, he returned to the game and played Sunday – against the Steelers, at least – before the test was revealed.
The NFL has told Sporting News that the PCR tests given daily play are “a 24-hour return (sometimes less).”
It is understandable that Baltimore was free to play Humphrey as he tried several times after his day was not ill, and it is understandable that the Ravens could be encouraged to join him against their arch-rival and rival at the head of AFC North.
McDonald, however, experienced a short period of time amidst his illness which seemed to have decided to take him on the road. And he’s a really unnecessary player. And the Steelers saw for themselves what happened to Humphrey. McDonald is a player who has voluntarily agreed to sign the club’s signing Eric Ebron during the game. In that case, the wise commitment would be to just stay home and maybe pass the exam. But it was not up to him to make a phone call.
What bad news for the Steelers in the decision they made? He’ll be involved in a few games (only 20, plus two-yard reception), and then I guess he has the virus, with a connection that makes Roethlisberger put on the COVID reserve list.
That’s where we are.
“We all have the following devices, these GPS devices that monitor our connection and the closest connection – its length, distance, and much more. When someone assumes they have COVID, the analysis of these devices is very important,” Tomlin said. “The interviews are conducted by NFL officials, and they raise concerns about public visibility. And they lead the case by dividing people into groups, even though they may be on the COVID list.”
This means that what the Steelers have done well so far Roethlisberger continues to make the wrong tests and join the team on the weekends.
It will be a long week for the Pittsburghers.
