Denver is forced to start Kendall Hinton — an undrafted rookie practice squad wide receiver at quarterback — Sunday after Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles were made ineligible to play due to COVID-19 contact tracing.
The Broncos are under fire as all three and quarterback Jeff Driskel, who tested positive, were together not wearing masks, as required by the league’s pandemic protocols.
In addition to the angry COVID-watchers on Twitter, Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin may have — maybe — took aim.
Judge for yourself:
Asked Mike Tomlin if they would put an emergency QB in a bubble to avoid a Denver situation:
"No, because we exercise all of the necessary precautions in terms of the quarterbacks we have."

That’s how you throw shade. Obvious enough we catch it, but careful enough bloggers have to use “Appears” in the headline. It’s more impactful that way, too. The “maybe” of it drives one insane.
By the way, you can exercise all of the necessary precautions you want, this is 2020. Have an emergency everything. Even stadium, just ask the 49ers.

muh magical face diapers…that aren’t reducing nationwide cases whatsoever [see the latest Kkkalifornia fascist restrictions]
Big Tomlin fan but he jisr needs to admit covid is a joke and that their precautions aren’t superior lol he is padding his bubble to protect him from getting mad at his employer clearly
I read the most ridiculous article today. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/nfl-hits-new-heights-of-embarrassment-as-covid-19-ravages-ravens-steelers-broncos-qb-situation/ar-BB1bt9tB?li=BB15ms5q
Full Coronabro article. The players are responsible. I love how the focus always shifts to the league instead of individual responsibility. Several players have opted out. The rest were willing to take their chances against the virus. Know the rules, wear your mask, blah blah blah. If the Steelers lose more players due to contact tracing, I will feel the same way.
Tomlin is a d-bag. The Steelers have had almost as many positive tests as the Ravens.
I watch every MT press conference because quite frankly they are entertaining as hell and I’m a giant fan.
He wasn’t throwing shade at Denver. If you watch the whole press conference that’s very clear.
