Tackling Football Double O.T.

http://www.lohud.com/story/sports/columnists/mike-dougherty/2017/08/17/dougherty-questions-cte/573477001/

we need more information...and in the meantime will need to make decisions based on the information that we already do have

The same could be said for the game of life.

4th and long.

Tackling Football O.T.

Hope you enjoyed the Tackling Football series!

​Below are some additional related articles to peruse. 

Ideas that have been tossed around: different helmet designs, different face mask designs, remove helmets, widen field, shorten field, reduce number of players, eliminate kickoffs, mobile virtual players (robots), minimum age requirement, flag football or no flag football, etc.

For football's sake...for players' sake...here's to hoping that there is one Hail Mary pass waiting to be thrown/caught.

Tackling Football VII

Everyone should continue to follow their doctor's orders but treating physicians' recommendations may soon be changing to catch up with some emerging research:

https://www.outsideonline.com/1928476/new-science-concussion-recovery

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/08/29/playing-with-sports-concussion-doubles-recovery-time-study-suggests.html

http://training-conditioning.com/content/momentum-shift

A former player I used to coach is now playing in his third season in the the NFL for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The NFL's current  “Play Smart. Play Safe.” initiative now follows the more traditional treatment protocol.​  However, if the NFL is truly concerned about player safety and recovery, they might want to check out the new research.   

​The NFL certainly has the means to fund and test new research and practice. Again, until then, everyone should continue to follow their doctor's orders but traditional treatment plans may be becoming outdated. Folks should at least be aware of the new research to have informed conversations with their doctor. The NFL could help facilitate these conversations by putting the new research front and center.

Don't get me wrong, I still love my Sundays but admit I don’t look at any of it the same anymore. Nowadays I worry more about the Neal Sterlings (#87) of the world.  Last January Neal was listed as inactive for, yes, a concussion.​ If Neal makes the roster cut again, I hope he has a healthy season this year; I hope all players who love the game - from Pop Warner to the NFL  - could continue playing with boundless passion and enthusiasm and trust that the optimal safeguards are in place to enable them to keep playing for as long as their passion and enthusiasm exists.

Revisit MAP for Education tomorrow for Tackling Football O.T.
