Ryan Tannehill Decided To Get Vaccinated So The NFL Wouldn’t Make His Life ‘Miserable’

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill wasn’t planning on getting a Covid vaccine, and then the NFL stepped in. Feeling as though the league “forced his hand”, the quarterback opted to get vaccinated rather than be “miserable”.

Following Thursday’s practice, Tannehill addressed his vaccination status: “I’m currently in the (vaccination) process right now,” Tannehill said.“The NFL has kind of made it clear what they want to happen. If you don’t fall in line, they’re going to make your life miserable with all the protocols.”

Earlier this month the NFL announced strict penalties for teams and players who are not vaccinated. In addition to forfeiture of games and pay, the league also instituted protocols restricting unvaccinated players in a number of ways, including: required masks and travel separate from the rest of the team.

Such protocols left Tannehill feeling forced to comply with the league’s wishes: “I wouldn’t have gotten the vaccine without the protocols that they’re enforcing on us. I think it’s a personal decision for everyone. Everyone has to make the best decision for them and their families,” added Tannehill. “That’s kind of our mindset in this building. But they’re trying to force your hand, and they ultimately have forced a lot of hands by the protocols.”

With the decision seemingly made for him, Tannehill is turning the page and preparing for his third season as Tennessee’s signal caller: “It is what it is. I love this game. I love this team,” said Tannehill. “I want to be able to compete and do the things I think are important to build chemistry and win football games. Ultimately, that forced my hand into getting the vaccine.”

Entering the season as AFC South favorites, Tannehill and the Titans will give it their best shot come September.

    • There will be endless shots. That’s the point of all this. Control. There’s a reason we’ve never had a cold virus vaccine (also Coronavirus). It has so many variations you can’t take one shot to inoculate. You’d need 100k shots. It’s impossible with current technology. These shots are nothing but experiments on a mass scale.

  1. Scary AF. They’re going to make it so you have to comply if you want any kind of normal life. Notice how these guys are just getting shots instead of fighting back, and that attitude is being counted on.

  2. This is precisely how totalitarians gain control. Next you’ll be forced to give it to your kids or else they can’t attend school. Then you’ll be refused jobs without it. Then you’ll not be allowed to buy food without it. Can I ask the thinking people in the room, “Why would you need to threaten people to take something if 1)They felt in real danger without it, 2) the shot was clearly effective 3) the shot was clearly safe?” The reason half of America and the world are refusing this is because no one has answered those questions adequately without lying or manipulating data. Why is that?
