Totally disagree. The point of social distancing was to keep what happened in Italy and New York from happening in the rest of the country. It was always about not overwhelming the hospitals which would have pushed the death rate from below 1% to closer to 3 or 4 %. And social distancing has done that. The attitude if not caring about anyone but yourself is a big reason why we have more cases than any other country. The whole I don't care anymore and I'll take my chances is a selfish attitude and reflects the current me versus we attitude which is huge part of the problem in this country. The fact many others are being selfish and self absorbed is hardly an adequate justification. So if I handed you a bag of m&Ms and said 3 were poisoned, would you be the first to eat one or would you let other guys eat them until 3 of them died and then eat with no worries?
That's a lot of money to spend on a placeholder.
Personally I think they think that there is a chance that Teddy can be more than just a bridge QB.
They might have convinced themselves that TB has the skillset to excel in the system that they want to run. I keep going back to the idea that coaches have egos, and believe they can get more out of a player than other coaches did.
More times than not though a player is who you think they are. In the defense though look at how much Burrow changed from one season to another, so maybe it's possible.
Especially younger, healthy people. The thought is if they are going to get, might as well get it out of the way and if they don't get it...fantastic! You saw that during spring break for college students when the mortality models were much more grim than they are now.
