  1. This is a frustrating read I know all the answers but choose to not involve myself. Good luck
  2. http://NFL Concussion Diagnosis and Management Protocol https://www.nfl.com/playerhealthandsafety/resources/fact-sheets/nfl-head-neck-and-spine-committee-s-concussion-diagnosis-and-management-protocol https://www.nfl.com/playerhealthandsafety/health-and-wellness/player-care/concussion-protocol-return-to-participation-protocol I got yelled at multiple pages back for saying the team doctors were absolutely involved and never got a thumbsup turns out I'm even more right than even I thought
  3. I think it was malicious. Coach needed to win the game against the Bills. It was more important than Tua's future. And then they had to play him the 1/2 week later to cement the "back injury" and not concussion protocol excuse.
  4. Usually in game injuries aren't reported until that player comes out for a period of time. So although it appears he may have actually hurt his back earlier, i don't think/recall their was a report of a "back injury" until after the CONCUSSION.
  5. Yes the back injury was reported almost immediately, did you watch the game? They then had to maintain this excuse for the rest of the game, the next half week of practice and the next game and are still maintaining this excuse at this very moment.
  6. Because he would have been going through concussion protocol instead of treating a "back injury" We have seen most if not all of those times the player does not pay the following Thursday
  7. Too bad he was playing in a game 4 days after the "Back Injury"
  8. Its amazing the thought processes we have here. We have multiple posters who really thought a professional medical doctor that works for the team they are paid to care for can not make their own decision? below are some snippets from this article: https://www.boston.com/sports/new-england-patriots/2018/03/07/heres-how-the-nfls-concussion-protocol-really-works/ "After giving the examination, the UNC and team doctor confer on a “go or no-go’’ decision. The NFL prefers the team approach, especially since the team doctor knows the player well." “There has to be clear consensus,’’ Sills said. “If there’s any hesitancy whether someone is normal or not normal, they’re going to keep him out.’’ "But just because a player passes a test doesn’t mean the doctors are done observing him. “This isn’t a one-and-done thing,’’ Sills said. “I’m going to watch him during the next set of plays, see how he looks, and probably walk up to him after the series and say, ‘Hey, are you OK?’ ’’ There is much more in the article also I'd like to see the source that says the contrary if there is one.
  9. Did you know that the Dolphins have their own doctors too and they do stuff and are allowed to use their brains.
  10. There is a pile on culture here. as soon as the first response is negative everyone follows with this said, who is starting at center today?
  11. There's a long history as someone joked about a shoe fitting machine that took me by surprise. but most notably to me, in the airports early 2010's https://www.propublica.org/article/tsa-removes-x-ray-body-scanners-from-major-airports https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2333685/TSA-removes-ALL-backscatter-X-ray-machines-airports-privacy-concerns.html
  12. Jaquon Johnson impressed in Preseason so at least thats good
