Can I be part of your entourage in the event you need a fall guy for illegal activities and urine samples in the event you get “pregnant” like Cushing?
You got it.

In the event of you taking the bullet for me getting caught picking up high-class prostitutes i will make it up to you buy paying all your resulting divorce fees and help you celebrate your newfound single life by picking up some high-class escorts

How many times have you seen a player go back into a game, re-enter the game, not get hit then fail the concussion test. Examples please:
And that matters why? I don't keep track of every potential concussion and neither do you.

The article plainly states concussions can appear after a delay. Done. Medical explanation not involving tin foil. Doc looked at him at halftime and failed him.

It matters if you've never seen it happen before in 49 yrs of watching football.

Nope. Concussions have only been an issue for a few years. Unless you've got something to refute the article, it would have been sound medical practice to retest. May be only 1 in 10 fail a retest. It's not like fans get full information on this.

I'v been concussed before. Coach gave me some of that smelling crap. and low and behold, Im back out there making tackles. Since you have followed football that long, you should've witness that before.
Yes, but you probably got hit again before you got pulled for another concussion I would bet.

Was it the team 'Doc' or the independent doc that is supposed to evaluate concussions? We'll never know

I've seen players enter the concussion tent. I know they're getting checked and the player exits the tent with a "clear to go" approval. Re-enters the game and never goes back into the tent and winds up playing the following week. I'm guessing that almost every broadcast crew would zoom in on a doctor approaching the same player on the sideline or the same player re-entering the concussion tent.

Plus, I was always interested in why no one got Savage's side of the story. Savage was pretty pissed off when they initially told him he would be going in for concussion protocol, if I remember correctly the cameraman caught Savage screaming some expletives then slamming his helmet to the ground. He exits the field, obviously he's thoroughly tested based on his time in the locker room, then he's cleared, comes back on the field so O'Brien had him enter the game to take a knee before halftime. So, somewhere between the kneel down and the beginning of the second half, Savage is determined to be too concussed to continue and therefore sits the entire second half...on the sideline looking no worse for wear. I thank god everyday that when the teams came out of tunnel, Savage didn't inadvertently run to the wrong sideline. The bigger question, no one was interested in interviewing him after the game to get his take on the situation? That's BS! By the way, I've also seen concussed players give an interview after a game.

Just a glancing blow to his shoulder.
Where's the sequence...nice cherry picked photo. Does every player go under concussion protocol if they're a little slow to get up? I've seen players in this very position (photo) with officiating crew members around them and within a moment, they were back on their feet playing the game. This chosen image does nothing to prove a point, if you watched the game.

This is the stupidest discussion since....well I can't think of one quite frankly.

There was no grand conspiracy to get Savage replaced with Brock. All coach had to do is yank Savage at HT and tell Brock he is in for the 2nd half.

It's not like OB has been afraid to yank QB's or something. Y'all think he was looking for cover or something? Lame. He's done it plenty. And if Savage blows chunks again this Sunday I'm pretty sure he'll do it again.

Just IR him already. Savage will be "lucky" (not in the medical sense of the word) if he's in the league after what he's put on film this season.
I don't know who to root for in a somewhat cruel way. It's entirely likely whoever starts this game never makes another NFL start, maybe doesn't even make a roster.

So who would you like to see get a last hurrah? I'm gonna go Yates.

I think Savage and Fido need to ride off into the sunset while they can still form coherent sentences. That last visual of Savage in the end zone was not a pretty one.

I'm fairly disinterested. They will be losses and a waste of time. I may watch the games in the offseason to ward off off season disinterest, but I really don't care. Except for superstars, the roste is ****.

If I was Yates .... I might come down with some mysterious injury just to avoid playing that defense behind this OL ... either that or just hand the ball off on every play , damn the plays OB actually called , just hand it off three times and let Lechler punt.

Thought I read that he was IR'd yesterday.
