Lions’ binder of COVID-19 safety protocols is bigger than their playbook

These are unusual times for everyone, and NFL teams are no exception. And Lions General Manager Bob Quinn illustrated that in describing how the team has prepared its facility for hosting training camp in a pandemic.

Quinn said he has a detailed binder full of all the recommendations and rules the NFL has sent to teams about safety requirements, and that binder has grown so rapidly that learning that is now a bigger task than learning the Lions’ playbook.

It’s bigger than our playbook,” Quinn said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Quinn said the Lions have put their facility through 10 deep cleans and put plexiglass between lockers in the locker room in an effort to make sure the virus doesn’t spread.

So far, the Lions have not reported any player opt-outs or positive COVID-19 tests. They’re working hard to keep it that way.

    so we know their covid manual is at minimum 2 pages

    you beat all of us to it.

    Well done!

  2. Awesome. I am not going to beat them up like most will. I actually feel sorry for this organization fans. Hopefully they have the right people in place now and those are given a chance to change things.

  3. And the guy in charge of the Vikings Covid-19 procedures just tested positive. The virus don’t care…

  4. I can see that. Lions Play Book the last two years: No run game. Have Stafford go gunslinger every game until he takes too many hits and cracks vertebrae. Wait for draft. Rinse, repeat.

  5. When your best two plays for the past 30 years were hand it off to Barry or chuck it deep to Megatron and both of those guys retired early, we all know where they are at.

  6. Quinn is great at putting together binders, not so great at putting together winning football teams.

    I’m not a Lions fan but I cant imagine any fan of any team would rather be pitied than be beat up on.

  9. “Lions’ binder of COVID-19 safety protocols is bigger than their playbook” … which tells me all I need to know about the Lions offence.

  10. Its good to know they are taking it seriously anyways, other teams/sports ( looking at you Marlins ) could learn.

    And for all his faults, maybe Patricia’s hardline style could come in handy when enforcing this message into the players.

    This approach should be applauded

  11. Precisely the same exact thing I was going to write
