    My mistake, I clarified the title.

    Also unembedding the Tweets here:

    https://twitter.com/FanSided/status/1382092438693548032
    https://twitter.com/NFLPA/status/1382045945999855617

    For weeks or months, I go without not seeing Tweets here in the browser that I like despite clearing it. Until then the embedded Tweets don't show at all; the only way to get them to is to quote the previous post and then extract the Tweet.

    I know, but yours aren't showing up either. No one's does. Standard Chrome, standard W10P, unknown if it happens to anyone else.

  • Hmmmm. I've heard that. Shows up for me. But I'm not a tech guy, so I can't help there. :x

  • Our core players will be putting in plenty of work on their own but this does seem disadvantageous for the fringe guys. Is Darvin Kidsy getting an invite to Russ's workouts in SoCal?

    I also don't love the PR statement stressing "we the Seattle Seahawks" when this is a player thing but that doesn't really matter.

  • Better to have them than not, but it's not like they're going to spend that time watching TV and getting fat. Nobody is going to want to be the one showing up at mandatory camps out of shape.

    Well, it sounds like that certainly happened to BJ Finney to an extent.

  • I don't have any issue with the team skipping OTAs.

    However, I do think this a poorly written statement. With lines like "for the protection of everyone's safety" and the odd use of the word "stumble" when describing the forthcoming off-season workouts, It's cringe-worthy.

    There's literally no reason to invoke the pandemic for this. Everyone 16+ gets access to vax in less than a week. Russ/Ciara are doing a "vaccination special" Sunday night on NBC. The NFL is already making staffers/coaches vax to even be close to players. Players who won't vax will continue to have to have daily tests and wear their tracking device and probably enjoy meetings on Zoom while everyone else does it in person.

    So in short the OTA environment would be the MOST safe from a pandemic standpoint.

  • On the bright side it looks like we do save 100k on Diggs contract which was earmarked for a workout bonus. I'm guessing he was a no vote on this idea.

    The Broncos player's press release was so much worse, praising the level of play in 2020 and hinting it was due to less workouts. I guess they were too busy getting last place in their division to notice how poorly most defenses played for the first month or two.

    Access, but supply is still going to be short, better to be aware, OTA's are a few days and then off again. Being safe to July and or August and getting playbook coaching and regimens for new guys can be done. You also see who is self motivated and who is lazy.

  • This is obviously Russell's--and that she-devil Ciara's--doing so they can properly prep for their vaccination awareness special.

    The guy drags us to multiple wins a year and he can't even be bothered to work out? Plus, he probably has spent time with his kids in the off-season. He's out of control.

    I loathe the selfishness of today's players. Especially #3.

  • What concerns me about this is guys like Al Woods and Chance Warmack, who sat out last year, may not be in shape when it comes to training camp or mandatory sessions.

    Every team including our division rivals will face this dilemma--but there's none of this that's come up with the Rams, 49ers and Cardinals.

    Who wouldn't be pushing voluntary workouts themselves if they didn't sniff competitive advantage.
