http://ledger.southofboston.com/articles/2007/06/19/sports/sports04.txt Interesting nugget from this article: Samuel, currently embroiled in a contract dispute with the team, says in his endorsement that he had suffered three previous concussions but hasnât had one in three years since using the Maher mouth guard. http://blogs.charlotte.com/panthers/2007/08/scout-why-is-mo.html Dr.Gerald Maher, featured in ESPN the magazine and a Tufts head and neck specialist who treats Patriot players has been summond to an NFL research project by Rodger Goodell. The problem is, they do not apprieciate the complexities Dr. Maher bases his procedure on. An independent study seems to be the only way, unfortunate, because NFL team dentists could be easily trained in the procedure within days. Players like Morgan, Roethlisberger, Holdman, Cutler, Holmes should have a gripe with the union about not pressing for this corrective measure. By the way, the Patriots who wear it have the lowest concussion rate in the league, if anyone is counting, remember the team who has won three of the last six superbowls. They should all be fitted with the Maher mouth guard and concussion rates would drop to those of the Pats. www.mahercor.com http://www.suwaneedental.com/sportsdentistry/maher.htm Since 70% of concussions are jaw related every player should be wearing one of these.
