Coronavirus is uprooting the league right now. I don't mean for this to be political, so let's just keep it to what's going on in the league and the implication it could have for the Seahawks
-All 3 Broncos QBs just tested positive and are out vs. Saints
-49ers told they can't play in Santa Clara because of COVID restrictions
-Steelers-Ravens game keeps getting delayed. First Lamar and Ravens RB core gets it, then Steelers RB Conor. 18 members of the Ravens have COVID.
I am afraid the wheels could be coming off the season. But I imagine the league will push to finish no matter what, even if it has to shorten the regular season. We could be looking at several things that effect the Seahawks:
-If the postseason goes bubble mode, home field advantage will matter even less this year. Get in you can win it all.
-If other teams keep losing players come playoff time, they aren't going to be able to delay games. People will have to play with whoever they have.
This could be advantageous to the Hawks because we are the ONLY team in the league to have 0 infections from top to bottom, practice squad and staff included. If we stay without COVID and come up against COVID decimated teams in the playoffs we could have an advantage.
Please note I am NOT hoping anyone gets COVID. On the contrary, I hope everyone stays healthy so there's no "asterisk" talk about this season. But it's definitely a fact that COVID can end up giving teams, including us, an advantage. The Ravens playing without Lamar and Denver without a QB can attest to that...
What does everyone think? Is the season in jeopardy of being cancelled?
