  1. Any non CMC owners still holding Davis? How is CMC doing? Is it worth holding Davis while on bye? In a redraft league with a short bench. Have to make a move to secure playoffs and Davis is on my list to drop if his role is reduced.
  2. It's been almost a month since I've had it. I am starting to be able to smell things again, but just like a brief scent. Sense of taste is still gone. I understand the Head Tunnel thing. I get that from time to time. Honestly, I thought it was allergies and never equated it to Covid. But now that you mention it, I guess it makes sense. It's an odd sensation. I would put it more as being underwater. Leg cramping, and just body cramps/aches still occur as well.
  3. Looking for a little advice. My oldest is a HS Sr and has applied to 4 schools. She's already heard back from 2 of them, EKU and Michigan State - she was accepted to both. She is waiting to hear from TN (told mid-Dec) and Cincinnati (told Feb?). Waiting to get financial aid packages from the first two schools. Curious on the funding portion. She's filled out her FAFSA and put all 4 schools on the application. She received a package from EKU, which was didn't have more than what we expected. Waiting on MSU. Is there anything else to do, outside of looking for supplemental aid? I'm on her FAFSA application, and I continue to get emails from the four schools to update the application with their code they send to us. However, that code is already listed on the application. Am I missing something? I didn't really go through this phase when I went to school. I was probably offered one grant, but that was it. My parents didn't help me much back then, so I want to make sure I'm doing everything I can for my kids.
  4. Starting weight this morning was 221. I plan on doing a mix of IF, with better meal plans. It's the food/snacking between meals that gets me. I'm looking at one large meal a day, with 3 small healthy snacks during the day. Trying to keep the premise simple, expel more calories than I take in on a given day. To help with the holidays, I picked up an extra shift at a warehouse which forces me to lift/move heavy objects for about 4 hours a day. It's like getting paid to go to the gym! At least that's how I'm looking at it. Constant movement on my feet, squats, repeated lifting of 25-50lbs. Looking forward to seeing how this goes.
  5. Steelers players on Twitter right now actually pissed about the postponement..... Eric Ebron: i’m not gone lie @NFL THIS IS BULL####... Chase Claypool: What a joke.... JuJu: First the NFL takes away our bye week because another team can’t get their Covid situation together, now they take away our Thanksgiving primetime game for the same reason. Smh. Devlin "Duck" Hodges: Maaaaaannnnnnnnnn that’s some BS Alex Highsmith: SMH....
  6. Had one of these years ago. One manager was out of the playoff hunt and said "screw it". He simply dropped his active roster and picked up a bunch of injured players. It was like chum in the water. It really ruined the league for the last few weeks. Needless to say he was kicked out of the league. The GM had to undo all the WW claims and revert rosters to how they were prior to the purge. Then his team was locked. It was quite the hassle.
  7. I'm not one to keep a player in my lineup if he's on a bye. However, I have fielded teams where I opted to not fill a spot with a player. I didn't forget to fill the spot, but chose not to do so. I think if you're going to be a "busybody" monitoring everyone's lineup, you should probably only worry about yourself. There is a difference between someone quitting a league mid-season, never changing their lineup week to week, and an active owner who has strategically decided not to fill a complete lineup. As the "busybody", you trying to tell me what's best for my team has no insight into my thoughts/opinions. It's unwarranted, and honestly I'd tell you to go pound sand. You don't know my reasoning or what I'm trying to accomplish. For reference, my money league has a very short bench - 3 players. It doesn't leave much room for WW claims or backups. This league has been in place for over 12 years. It was designed to force in-season strategy. We pick up new players each year, mainly because some managers move on. It started as a work league, and after many of us moved on to greener pastures, we've kept it running over the years. With the short bench, you have to decide if you're willing to give up a player to fill a bye week, knowing you likely won't get said player back after the bye. Some teams manipulate the IR to get additional bench spaces. Some choose not to deviate from their draft unless they really have to do so. We go over the rules every year before the draft. Everyone agrees and we move forward. We don't tolerate someone being a "busybody" and trying to get people to fill a complete lineup. If you did, great, if not, you get what you get. We knew the consequences when we signed up to play.
  8. Oh...I'm not worried about them beating the Jags. I think that's a very good possibility. (It's the browns, they could lose...but I'm jaded a bit after having too much optimism in the past). I was more or less stating from a Defensive scoring potential. These two missing the game could result in fewer sacks, fumbles, and/or interceptions. The defensive line stepped up big last week. I'd like to see them do that again this week. But the secondary is really bad. Ward was the lone spotlight. Ronnie Harrison (safety) was another good player, but he got nicked up last week as well. Not sure if he'll be out there this week. I'm curious to see just how aggressive Woods will be with the patchwork secondary he'll be working with this week.
  9. In related news, Browns will be without their top CB (Denzel Ward) who will miss a few weeks due to a calf injury. They will also be without DE Myles Garrett for the game vs Jax. As a Browns fan, that defense can live without one of those, but losing both is a big hit. The secondary was already a weakness. Losing Ward makes it worse.
  10. I'm in for 10 as well. I picked up some weight with Covid, and it's time to get rid of it.
  11. Why? They didn't move the GB game when they had players on Covid list? It sucks for Baltimore, but unless the entire team, including backups, are in the list, I don't see how the game is moved. NFL has already set a precedent that the game will go on.
  12. You must be a Chubb owner, huh? Bet you got really pissed when he ran out of bounds at the 1 yard line in wk 10 also. This team has two of the best RBs in the lg right now. You ride them both the rest of the way with Baker using PA to keep defenses honest.
  13. Yep. The only time I didn't was when I used the shower in order to be ready for a work meeting scheduled early that morning. I don't know for sure it was the gym, but that was the only change to my daily routine. Most I encounter wear a mask. Grocery stores around me are pretty good, maybe 10-15% of people aren't wearing one. But heaven forbid you go into a gas station! it's the complete opposite. Although there are signs up everywhere that masks are mandatory to enter the building, no one there is enforcing it. People are constantly ignoring the rule within the small buildings. That is an area I have been avoiding as much as possible.
  14. Agreed. I stayed at home for pretty much 6 months. Never changed my routine. Always wore a mask if I went to the store/restaurant. Rarely had a family gathering. I ended up contracting COVID last month. The only thing I did different was going to a gym to exercise. I decided I needed to get out of the house for an hour a day and do something productive. I went to a local gym, which posted COVID guidelines and constantly sprayed down equipment. After a week of going there every morning, I ended up testing positive. Half the people there didn't wear masks, or didn't follow the guidelines posted. I went very early in the morning when attendance was low (maybe 15 people overall). No where is "safe" as long as people don't want to follow the simple rules - wear a mask and stay distanced. It's not that hard.
