    I'm a fan and I like to watch football. But it's really a stupid game in which to participate. My brother played High School football and has had back problems ever since. Look at all the pros who retire only to have horrible health issues. Human bodies just aren't made for this stuff. I wouldn't want my son playing football. Baseball or basketball, yes, but not football. Just too hard on bodies.

    apparently, this guy never saw anyone get hit in the head with a baseball. Honestly I always feel that people who wouldn't play football because it's "dangerous" are a little light in the loafers.

    The body isn't made for skiing either with 16,000 head injuries
    [SIZE=-1]http://www.helmets.org/skicrash.htm
    or this article that detailed fatalities from skiing, 41 in 2003-2004 or almost as many as people who died from being struck by lightning (43) and much more than football......

    Its more the person than the sport, and to a lesser extent how that person conditions himself. Look at Johnny Damon, he's a wreck at 34 even though his sport calls for standing or sitting around about 98% of the time. This is a sport where a player is given a rest time-out if he has to stand at attention in the batter's box for more than five consecutive seconds. Yet they're still all beat up and constantly going on the DL.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Brandon Jacobs suffered a severe knee injury. That won't help the Giants chances this year.

    Yes, their back 7 took a major hit. Losing 3 players... And Keith Ellison was already out.

    I don't know if it's listed but Mike Brown has a "knee Sprain" and PFT actually believes it might be a torn ACL

    that poor guy

    Rodney Harrison being suspended may actually have been a blessing in disguise. Less chance he will be injured in the post season.

    And people still wonder why teams hold their starters back/out in the pre-season? The more you play, the greater chance that you'll get injured.
    You just hope to reduce the risk.

    If most of the arguments on this board are true, guess out training staff did a good job.. we tend to blame them for injuries, so kudo's when there are none.

    Giants possibly losing Manning and Jacobs = Bye Bye Tommy Coughlin

    Sammy Morris took a wicked hit yesterday that looked like his knee and ankle buckled at the same time. I'm amazed he wasn't seriously injured, the guy must be another Gumby.
