Default Saints Game: Schaub Grabs Helmet in Apparent Pain

...........after he took a knee to the helmet in the Saints game. He appeared to be in severe agony. So it was good to see him finally get up again.........and not leave the game with what could have very well been a reaction to concussion.

As it turns out, his in-helmet speaker went crazy and started blasting at unbearably high volume.

Don’t know if anyone ever brought this up or even had a sick feeling when it occurred.

I was wondering what happened there. It didn't seem like that hard a shot and he normally doesn't react like that.

Wouldn't your first reaction be to take your helmet off instead clutching it in the fetal position?

I believe it is a penalty to remove your helmet on the field.

Wow! I was actually wondering if that was what it was, because he didn't take that hard of a hit.

I bet he had a "polite" little conversation with the equipment manager, after his ears stopped ringing, that is.

yeah, no doubt. Don't forget that he must have that in-helmet speaker because he is incapable of calling plays or even audibles, too.

Here's Schaub's explaination. He admits to trying to draw the flag. Who said it was the speakers in the helmet?

Quote:
“Well, I was just trying to; A, there was a little bit of a guy that came in there with his leg that kind of shocked me a little bit, but at the same time, that’s a point in the game that if you have something like that, that you’re trying to maybe get a flag come out and get a call, trying to do anything you can to move the chains.”

Schaub was on the radio the other day and he said he hammed it up a bit and was trying to get a flag. He said "anything to help the team".

Now I caught it in mid interview so he may have been half joking, but i didn't hear anything about the ear piece. Just the hit and how it kinda hurt and how he was trying to sell it.

I'm just saying if there is a loud sound blasting through my helmet, the last thing in my mind would be about avoiding a penalty.

There was no loud sound and really that explanation doesn't make a lot of sense.

But you are right, if a sound in your ear is loud enough for you to grab your head and wince from the pain, you would at least pull your helmet up a little to get the ear piece from directly over your ear tunnel.

You can unbuckle your chin strap and pull your helmet up a little without getting a penalty.

I hadn't heard that, but when I saw it I thought it was something with the electronics based on his body language. He didn't look like he was foggy, he looked like I do when I turn on Pandora Radio on after I've had my IPod hooked up to my car at full volume.

That or I thought maybe he was pissed because he hasn't had one of those "Crazy Schaub" photos show up somewhere recently.

I didn't think he was faking, I thought he took another shot to the head, I saw two earlier, and was just sick & tired of the refs not calling it, so he was trying to draw attention to it.

I agree with what Michael Vick said, I don't agree with how he said it.

If there is anything I do not like about Kubiak's sideline demeanor, is that he doesn't light into the referees when we don't get the calls we should.

Now if a player unintentionally bumped my QBs helmet, that's another story. But Matt's been taking helmet to helmet contact, late hits, unnecessary roughness.... & Kubiak (as far as I know) doesn't say anything.

I think, it's just like basketball. If the coach cries about it, the referees will start looking for it. & you'll get the calls you should.

Justice reports:

Quote:
There was a scary moment in the fourth quarter when Matt Schaub went down hard and appeared to take a knee to the helmet. He stayed down a moment, his hands clutching his helmet as if he’d suffered a head injury.

Turns out, he was holding his head in pain of a different kind. He was being blown out of the helmet by a sound system that was screaming in his ears. Once the volume got turned down, he was fine.
