If there is a season, and it's shortened to let's say like 8 games, and the playoffs were abridged or even if they aren't, if the Saints were to win the Super Bowl, would that diminish the title in your eyes at all? Would you still celebrate it to the fullest?

Not if the Saints win it. But if the Vikings, Falcons, 49ers, Rams, Bucs or that team in Texas were to win it... All bets are off.

I'd do my part to never let anyone forget they're nothing more than #CoronaChamps and only played half a season's worth of games against teams that didn't get to practice fully, in empty stadiums. 😈

I think that, if those 8 games would include the regular 6 division games, the argument can be made that, overall, it would be as hard (if not harder in some cases) to get to the playoffs. 75% of a team's games will be against division rivals, so it is harder to win the division, and the shorter season means there would be no strategic hold backs (saving players or plays for later in the season, for example).

Normally this would be a very subjective question. But there is a 100% correct answer to this one.

Yes, in a shortened season, the championship would be tainted and NOT EVEN COUNT according to the other 31 teams, the media, and their fans..

If there is a 2020 season, the outcome is going to be just the way you described it. This season will never be viewed by the majority as a legitimate one.

But I would absolutely take it... a short season with a championship for a short QB who is a champion.
