Concussions

Dunno exactly where to put this, so mods, move it to where you find applicable.

After hearing about Coffee's concussion that will keep him out of the next game, M. Lewis' 3 concussions, Jahvid Best, Ulbrich, Westbrook, and a number of other players, it just seems to me that there have been many more concussions this season than in past seasons. Anyone else feel this way?

Maybe the medical staffs are better at recognizing it. This is a violent game but there seems to be an alarming rate of concussions.

You're guys thoughts?

It sounds like you're just hearing about it more because they are happening near you, with guys on the 49ers and Cal Bears getting concussions.

Other than that, I haven't noticed any "alarming" increase in concussions.


Go back to these, I bet they stop leading with and sticking their heads in the play then.
