David Samson says the NFL doesn't want to believe that there's a possibility the draft may need to be moved

Despite its recent efforts to the contrary, the NFL is starting to learn that operating under a "business as usual" mentality can only work for so long. General managers have started making pushes for the NFL Draft to be postponed in the wake of pretty much everything being shut down as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Of course, all those people in those positions can do is recommend that the league take that action. Those in the league office, meanwhile, seem more committed to maintaining the integrity of the NFL's prescheduled calendar. This is a topic that David Samson covers on the Wednesday edition of his podcast, "Nothing Personal With David Samson."

"They don't want to believe that there's an actual possibility, a possibility, that their season could have any sort of interruptus," Samson says of the NFL.

"And for you to get replaced by Tom Brady in a city you love so much, I guess that's kudos to me." Winston's comments exemplify the puzzling five-year run he had in Tampa: Last season Winston became the first player t..
