It does explain a lot.

At least he isnt Watson

Wonder whether he'll eventually join the CTE Hall of Fame to be with such greats as O.J. Simpson and Aaron Hernandez.

He claims to have suffered five penis picks worth of concussions.

How many D pics did he send out to female reporters?

I remember a game back when Mike Sherman was HC where Favre hit the back of his head on the turf hard enough he got sent to the sidelines. A couple plays later he came out and threw a beautiful 4th down touchdown pass near the end of the half, then came back to the sideline and puked. He didn't play the rest of the game, and afterward said he had no recollection of throwing the touchdown.

I think quarterbacks should get a new number every time they get a concussion. Start at 1, see where you're at when you retire.

Flashes of light? No. That's just what happens when you get cracked solidly. But if you remember the moment when the hit came, track the finger well enough when they pass it before your eyes, know how many they held up in front of your face, know what day it is, and remember the conversation 5 minutes later, nah, you're fine. Go about your business. Can't say I've ever had ringing in my ears that couldn't be directly traced to exposure to too many decibels, or happened just because I got old, and had too many such exposures to loud shiat. Concussed is in a fog, disoriented, don't really know what's going on, lightheaded, with possible puking or drowsiness, and occasionally a weird floating sensation when I walk. Often associated with loss of consciousness at point of impact, but not always. Then feeling mentally off and/ or acting a bit odd for several days to several weeks afterward. But lets not forget, even the subconcussive shots add up, and can eventually leave you with a brain that doesn't work quite right.

Turns out that's plenty if it happens often enough.

Oh, my bad, forgot TL;DR

(Fwiw I did read and glad you said that)

It's why I think football's end game will be at the high school level. Amateur/pre-college is going to have to privatize eventually because the insurance costs will be too much. Texas and Florida may be left as the only states with high schools which can afford to play or are allowed to play.

I don't know how he can even function as a human after all the hits he took over the years. The Warren Sapp blind side hit he took in Tampa comes to mind. No one should have been able to get up from a hit like that. He popped right back up and slapped Sapp on the ass.

This guy tends to draw his videos out and be hyperbolic, but it's exactly what you're describing.

You, apparently.

He's still sharp enough to defraud Mississippi of millions of dollars, so there's that.

Yup. He hadn't even cleared with anybody that he was going in (and he clearly had no idea what down it was) just got up off the bench, "sprinted" onto the field on 4th and short, called a play and everybody went with it.

Yeah, but it's Mississippi. How clever do you really have to be? Junior Seau probably could have managed it 15 minutes before he shot himself.
