    It would be easier to take your argument seriously if you knew the guy's name. Jahvid Best was an undersized back who had concussion problems dating back to college, including one utterly disastrous hit his Sr season after being rushed back to the field just a week after suffering another concussion. Apples and hammers.

    So what I got the first name wrong? The point still stands. Some act like concussions are just easy to get over. They aren't. Best was a tremendous talent coming out of college. Not some undersized, lack of talent joker.

    No, just and undersized back who had a known history of concussions coming to the league, including one that was about as bad as it gets.

    Like I said, not all concussion or people are created equal. That was one hell of a concussion and a play we've seen guys walk away from more often than not.

    So now Bennett is a guy who is brittle and possibly concussion prone...
    Well thankfully Joe Anderson and Wilson are in the mix...

    I think Anderson does have potential but I think a healthy EB would be best for this team.

    Drake couldn't develop ANYONE to save his life or his job.

    OK, if it will make everyone happy, I will start wringing my hands in concern for the career of Earl Bennett. How bout it Henry, are you with me.

    Bennett has been limited by injury in just about every season. Plus I have always thought we paid him way too much. I like how he has hands of glue, but the reality is that the only reason he got the contract was because he was the only acceptable WR on the team.

    It may be time to move on if this is indeed a concussion.

    Or at least move him down on the roster. Again I think this will just add to them keeping 6 on the roster not to mention Jeffery had "hamstring tightness" which is an issue he had last year.

    Not that Rusty could do much about concussions, but I find myself pining for Mr. Jones. All these hammy issues reminds me of Camp Lovie 1.0.
