  1. Good advice....we'll tune you out from now on then. "In the debate over which quarterback has had the greater career, Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, the postseason stats are remarkably similar. -Passer rating, the NFL’s flawed but still useful formula to put one number on a quarterback’s all-around passing performance, gives Manning a career postseason mark of 88.1. Brady’s career postseason passer rating is 88.0. -Less than one percentage point separates the two quarterbacks’ career postseason completion percentages: Manning has completed 63.35 percent of his postseason passes, while Brad
  2. If you had to choose one Cards wr...Floyd is the best bet. But it could literally be any of the three leading the pack, so the ADPs of 6.01 (Floyd) 6.08 (Fitz) 7.08 (J. Brown) make sense. Floyd's got all the tools and just needs to stay healthy so they can keep him busy.
  3. If you think posting gifs makes someone look cool, you have a very low bar for coolness.
  4. The Pimp Perspective: Set up straw man Make him sound ludicrous Throw out cherry-picked player comparison Rinse, Repeat. BOTH had amazing players on offense and defense which they undoubtedly made better. BOTH redefined the position. Manning with the audibles and shifts. Brady with the short passing game and seams. BOTH won multiple championships. Manning has some edges in head to head, Brady holds others. The list goes on and on..... it really just depends how you want to define "the greatest".
  5. From the article: "Among the possible explanations Miller mentioned were a doubling in the number of players screened for possible concussions" If you increase the screenings by 100%, but concussions only increase by 32% you probably don't have a worsening problem. If that's the case....you can go ahead and throw out all figures that we had prior to 2015. That's like moving a weather station and reporting that snow has increased by 70% that year.
  6. "Concussions down 35% in '15" - Psygolf Not sure if u saw this Psy, but the new data suggests just the opposite. Concussions UP 32% in 2015. A result of lowering the diagnosis threshold, or a worsening problem? http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/14672860/nfl-says-diagnosed-concussions-way-season
  7. Can certainly believe that. I played competitive hockey from age 12 through college. Had more than one concussion. My nephew is 11 and just started playing- it's so different how they treat safety gear now. It was like u said- got your bell rung. Shake it off and get back in there. Different times, my friend.
  8. Agree fully, I had to sign a waiver in order for my son to play high school football...not sure if I had already mention this, maybe too many hits to the helmet myself.Although, he was not asked to sign on with a players union - would the union need to be equally corrupt as the owners side in order for our proposed "Waiver Era" period of the NFL to begin? I'm gonna go with "YES" to the too many hits to the helmet...LOL You have once again destroyed your opposition due to endless patience and an indomitable will Go Broncos
  9. Its not frequent at all...this is the point of the peer-review process. Usually 2-3 doctors review a submitted paper and provide suggestions for change; once those suggestions are met, the paper is accepted. The vast majority of papers submitted (>85%) are not accepted for publication. The issue with Omalu's original publication wasn't the quality of the study -- it passed the peer-review process even though Neurosurgery made him go through 18 (!!) different reviewing doctors (remember that more than 95% of accepted papers are reviewed by fewer than 5 doctors). The issue was that once
  10. Now we're getting to the nuts and bolts.... Great questions Psy. I would think a "3 strikes and you're out" rule would encourage underhanded tactics. "OBJ has a neck injury. Or a sinus injury." You would have to really ferret out the truth sometimes. We can't even get a decent injury report from many teams. Here's an idea: Once a team finalizes their roster and practice squad before the season- every player gets a thorough concussion risk eval. If you score below a certain threshold, you're required to sign off your future rights of medical care. Maybe even attend a league
  11. From the NFL's point of view, going back to when Tags was commissioner: Assuming they have some nerds locked in a room crunching numbers regarding how many billions this will cost them... 1. What if we give the players healthcare for life, but the average lifespan increases to 120? 2. What if we delay the findings for 20 years and universal healthcare is enacted? Are we still on the hook for the same amount of damages? Healthcare for life? 3. What if we delay the findings for 30 years and a genetic component is revealed, then we can come out and say "The technology wasn't there befo
  12. Buddy... This is the world of 2016. U coverup major medical information and the lawsuits will be just the beginning of your problem. The NFL is always behind on this stuff. Disclose the full risk, take the stance that you want to lead the way instead of having to be dragged kicking and screaming.
  13. They are working with professionals to improve the safety of the game...to expect them to accept FULL responsibility for any ailment a former player has after they retire is unrealistic. Full responsibility? no. Full medical care? yep. With the caveat being that acceptance implies understanding and full responsibility of risk. ie....getting out ahead of it and cutting down on lawsuits later.
  14. Good stuff Low.... thanks for posting that. I do see Psygolf's point. Personal responsibility is sorely lacking in todays society- The lawyers and PC run amok is just disgusting to me. There is no substitute for using ones judgement. I think a healthy distrust of gov't agencies and corporations is necessary. Money corrupts all Money and power both corrupt.And those with it will do whatever they can to retain it. The Big Short and Spotlight are two movies that illustrate this axiom in vastly different entities. The NFL is no different. Yep. And just like any other corporation-
