Jean-Baptiste? where is this coming from? De's ahead of him are Harrison, Smith, Cooper & Friday. There are not the reps there for him to go early, and everyone but Cooper will be back 2021 - and Sawyer will replace JC. Dont see an early entry at all for JJB - in fact the opposite with more like a 5 yr career like Davon who really turned the corner his last year.

He may be right - ie Ramzy declaring March 20 up to 165 million Americans will contract the virus.

is John Blair and so many others willing to die on this horse? I won’t Declare this a hoax like many have,  and I have practiced social distancing which is a phrase that I abhor. Americans are getting restless and they say this was a waste of time for the most part. The “death rate“ continues to drop from 8% to 3.4% to 1.6% to nothing more than the regular common flu. The only difference is this is more contagious, but it is not more deadly.

If you’re new to the movement here... let me sum up:
- The #COVID19 virus is impactful & challenging but not the apocalyptic pandemic predicted. 
- The models they used to predict hospital overload were flat wrong
- The risk/benefit ratio has flipped... time to get back to work.

Navy Buck, always been a regular up voter of your commentary but…Y’all Crazy!!

I don’t want to hear about logarithms and anywhere from 164 million infected on the conservative side and 214 million on the worst case scenario… This virus that originated in China had 80,000 documented cases, 7000 current case is now on the other side of the curve, and less than 3000 deaths.

it’s nothing less than fear mongering that is going on here. Not only will we not get to 165 million, we won’t get to 10 million. Yes those 10 million could lead sadly to 30,000+ deaths, which will still be less than what the flu takes from us every year in the United States. My son has been on a Screening team all week in the Kettering health network system, there are a lot of people sick with colds and the flu that are taking up important resources to be screen for something that they don’t have.

Sorry to interrupt everybody’s panicking with a little bit of truth. 7000 cases in the United States is not going to escalate to 165 million. Practice safe distances, stay home if sick, quarantine you and your family to the degree of regulations required, protect our parents and grandparents, but stay calm and stop drinking  The Kool-Aid

Agree with the being responsible part and staying home and avoiding social contact… Totally agree.
But this statement ..

Eight percent of Americans get the flu. At least half of us will be facing COVID-19 in this tournament no one asked for -

It is completely moronic To insinuate that 165 million Americans are going to be infected by the coronavirus and is irresponsible. I’m not one of those guys that you have criticized about not paying attention to medical authorities, the WHO, the NIH & CDC. I have three adult children in the medical profession including a son who has to go to work every day this week and spend 12 hours a day testing people for the coronavirus, most of people who don’t even have symptoms. Then his family faces the danger of him coming home and sharing that virus that he could’ve contracted doing the right thing and helping the public community.

stating half the American public is going to contract this virus is just more fear mongering
