    I remember a day when heart drove a player in a huge game to exceed the boundaries of pain, with only the sheer motivation of desire to succeed and gain a crucial first down kept that player in the game.
    Emmitt Smith is the warrior I speak of!!
    He led this team to a victory over the Giants when he seperated his shoulder and could only use his left arm, but that didnt keep him out of the game, he demanded to play,, even with the pain that tortured every fiber of his being in that game that proved the heart of a true champion.
    Alexander is a total ####### sissy, and couldnt even hold Emmitts jock strap... what a friggin looser, and a total disrespect to the game.
    He really looked injured jumping up and down on the sideline when his QB ran one in for a TD.

    ridiculous thread....with a concussion, when the team doctor says you aren't going back in, neither the coach nor the player can overrule him.

    Sorry, but as a guy who has done some on-field sports med, if a guy's sensorium is not entirely clear you don't put him back on the field. My guess is Seattle was much better off with the backup RB in.

    Remember Aikman had the concussion in the 1993 Championship game against SF? He had concussion related symptoms as he got on the field in the SB and put both his contact lenses on one eye. The whole team was a bit subpar that day even though they eventually won and part of the reason may have been the residua of Aikman's injury the previous week.

    I guess Aikman was a multiple loser also since he went out of about 10 games in his career with concussions. :confused:

    I suggest you look up "second impact syndrome" since you know nothing about medicine. It can kill a player, separated shoulder who cares.

    Theres a difference between being on the ball and hurting and being able to deal with pain, but a concussion is something that you dont toy with. Do you know what a concussion really is. It is your brain smacking into your skull bone and the shock waves of the fluids in your brain inessence beating your brain up. Concussions generally are accompanied by headaches of varying degrees from mild to so severe you can not see anything but a bright light.

    Its one thing to know what your doing and just have a pain in the shoulder area. Its another when every step you take pounds in your head and you may not even know what city your in or what your doing there.

    I did not see the hit or much of that game, but I dont think the seachickens were wrong to hold him out till further evaluations can be done on him. Alexander is a hell of a back, wether you want to credit him or not, hes the league MVP. You gunna call Troy a ***** for retiring cause of concussions, go ahead, but hes able to remember what his name is and what he does for a living and what city hes in today. Ask Mohammad Ali whos president?

    While Alexander was "chipper" on the sidelines, he didn't look "all there" to me.
    A little too joyful... almost childlike.

    I think you should take a mulligan on this one dude. While it is possible to play with physical injuries sometime as extreme as broken bones, a concussion is something you can't over come.

    coming back from a concussion doesn't qualify as "toughing it out."

    Getting back into a football game isn't worth the possible BRAIN DAMAGE that you can do.

    Smart thread.....:confused:

    Quite the opposite I would say,,, I remember a day when players sucked it up, and told the doc to read a journal while they went back in and contributed to history,,, it must be you that is 10 years old my friend, and I feel sorry for you in that you never were able to wittness or even understand about what it takes to be a "hero".
    It comes down to character and heart, regardless of the leeching that Im getting from this thread, I wont back down from my original post.
