A full 16 game season is now in jeopardy. Players are retiring at an unusually high rate. They want no part of "the season of Covid".
It will be interesting to see which teams play to "judge and grade their talent", as "preseason-like". Let's face it, some teams are simply in the throes of an overhaul.
Some teams, whether you like or not, will "play" for a high draft slot. They'll have an easier time to get away with this, with a reduced schedule in all likelihood.
Some teams have a reasonable shot at riches. They'll play hard for as many games they can play. And get into the "playoffs".
This will be a season full of surprises. I just hope the NFL plays enough games to call it a season.
