The other lesson from the Vikings season revolves around the injury report. The NFL will surely close a loophole that exists when designating a player’s status for an upcoming game. After quarterback Brett Favre’s status changed from “out” to “doubtful” on the day of the week 15 game versus the Bears, many NFL observers cried foul. On the official NFL injury report, “out” means a player has a 0% chance of playing, and these guidelines are in place in order for teams to be able to set game plans in advance. When the injury report becomes laughable, the hard work a coaching staff puts in all week is wasted.

Judds column/article mentioned in the first article.


The New York area got hammered by this storm far worse than Philadelphia and you know what happened? The Islanders still played host to the Canadiens and Devils still played host to Toronto on Sunday. Only 3,136 showed up to watch the former game and 5,329 attended the latter but the games were scheduled to be played and they were.

(And don't argue that it would inconvenience fans to have played the Vikings-Eagles outdoors because they would have been cold. That's part of buying tickets from a team that plays its games outdoors in December and even January.)

The NHL doesn't often do things better than its football counterpart but in this case it made the right call and the NFL didn't. What the NFL learns from this teachable moment will be the key moving forward.



NFL should learn from decision

Lots of articles out there that he hasn't passed the "My brain is OK" tests and there was no plan to give him one today.

But hey, the broke one rule for him, why not another. :sick: :sick: :sick:

Their statement that there is "no plan" to give him the concussion test today sounds fishy.

It leaves the way open to suddenly get a plan.

We shall soon know. It's all in good fun and keeps everybody guessing.

:D

Keep in mind that his helmet DID hit that frozen turf pretty darn hard and it was reported to be like concrete.

It's entirely possible he's still calling people by their wrong names.

But.....the Eagles still must make some preparations for him just in case.

His head barely hit the turf. Even the commentators thought it was gonna be the shoulder or something in that area but not the head..... WOW.

:D

He was deactivated this afternoon, so there's a chance he could still start.

He is not spinning anything. If anything you are. I have used the commentators thing before and you ripped me. So fuck them and the opinion Favre is not hurt. It is just plain stupid.

This may be stating the obvious too obviously, but one can never be sure with Marrdro.

The COMMENTATORS were wrong. Favre had a concussion.

Most of us who have played on frozen fields knew it when his head was whipped into the frozen turf.

Others did not know.

:D
