    OT but not really: a real time personal anecdote about concussion

    My wife was hit last week in her car, at about a 45 degree angle, across the passenger side. Not a jarring hit - none of the airbags deployed, and she didn't hit her head on anything.

    OT: I think the league might need to intervene regarding Redskins TE Jordan Reed

    He’s been getting concussions for years now. I can’t imagine being in concussion protocol for 6 months. I think someone needs to step in and stop him before it’s too late. The league has never stepped in and forced a player to retire due to head injuries, but they may want to for their own...

    Players wear mouthguards?

    Do they? On a related note, anmouncers mentioned that Hogan "lost teeth", in a collision in practice. Yikes!!!!! I'm baffled as to how players don't wear mouthguards mow that i think about it, i rarely see them doing so. Even qbs should wear them. I think it would cut down on cte as well.

    Gilmore out with concussion....from what?

    Just reported. What on earth...such a tough start for this guy. I honestly don't know if we have the DB's to ward of the freaking Jets just in terms of pure numbers. Rowe and Gilmore out leaves Butler and Jones. Ouch.

    Thoughts on Roster Size, Concussions, and Player Safety

    The NFL claims to be concerned about player safety. In response to growing evidence about the long-term dangers of head-trauma, the NFL has instituted third party neurological reviews for player concussions that can force players to miss playing time. More generally, the NFL claims to be...

    Maybe I'm paranoid re Brady and concussions but I wonder what the league will do

    I posted this in the prediction thread as well. Anyone else think the concussion spotters have been ordered by the league to have very loose standards with Brady when it comes to removing him from a game - and in fact he likely will be getting pulled from one or more games this year by...
