When I think about all the contingencies and possibilities concerning the upcoming NFL season, I'm reminded of the seder song, Dayenu
All I want is to be able to watch the Giants play football this Fall. Winning and losing, quality football, that's not as important to me as the simple entertainment of turning on the TV and watching my boys in Blue once a week.
So here's my question: if they determined that the only wise way to put a product on the field with acceptable risk to player health was to limit all preparation to zoom meetings so that the only time the players actually suit up and physically interact is on game day, would it suffice us? Would that be better than no football at all in your mind? My answer is yes.
I understand what it would mean to the quality of the game. I understand that it would put the Giants at a significant disadvantage vs the Cowboys and Eagles (given the new coaching staff and new systems on both sides of the ball). I'm not saying it should be the NFL's plan A or plan B or plan C, but if all those plans are nixed for health reasons and we're left with it as plan Z, I'll take it and I won't complain. It's still football.
