The Principle is making it possible to anonymously tattle when it comes to concussions. Doctors and players that are pressured in the name of being competitive can tell the boss.
“It’s an important element of what we’re trying to accomplish here,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said today after a conference with medical personnel from every team in the league. “I have said repeatedly and will continue to say that medical decisions must override any competitive decisions. “It’s an important element of what we’re trying to accomplish here,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said today after a conference with medical personnel from every team in the league. “I have said repeatedly and will continue to say that medical decisions must override any competitive decisions. “And if anyone feels they are being forced onto the field when they are not ready to play, we want to know about that and look into it.”
In news that isn’t really news, Jeff Garcia is leading the race to be the next QB for the Bucs. Jon Gruden makes what I feel is a funny but logical comment…
“I’m accused of not liking young players. I just like good quarterbacks like everybody else in the league,” Gruden said Tuesday after the opening practice of the Buccaneers’ three-day mandatory mini-camp.
“I like guys that can make plays in a number of ways, whether it be through experience — seeing a look and not running a ball into a corner blitz, making a change at the line of scrimmage; a guy that can create with his legs; a guy that works the pocket and can throw the ball into congested areas and be accurate; a leader; a consistent performer.”
I don’t know if I should add a little Skins logo or Steelers logo here. One rule of football…Steeler Coach does not go on to Coach anywhere else. The Steeler fans are like the mafia and will not let Bill Cower coach another team quietly.
Anyway, the Redskins are denying reports that they are interested in bringing in the chin.
Jack Del Rio is making sure everyone has noticed that they have been making moves.
“I think the speed that we’ve added is evident,” Del Rio said. “If you look at some of the additions – offense, defense, guys who will impact our special teams – we’ve increased team speed. That was something we set out to do.”
