So you are saying a one legged Jason Taylor is not better than Everrette Brown? I'd have to disagree.

Anyone who has played a team sport (a lot of you probably have) knows that your teammates are the most important thing to you. You don't wanna let anyone down, you don't want to dissapoint your team. They are your brothers. That means playing through ridiculous pain and circumstances. And thats just high school and college teams. Imagine being a professional athlete the stakes are 100 times higher.

Ballsy...and really stupid considering if that PICC gets infected he would have been out even longer and possibly woulda required a hospital stay..

Not really. A PICC line goes into one of the veins in your upper arm, usually on the inside of your bicep, and has the end in your superior vena cava, the large vein in your chest that returns blood from the upper half of your body to the heart. The tip isn't in the heart since it could cause heart arrythmias bouncing around in there. I would think the big problem as was stated would be infection. PICC lines are direct conduits to your heart and central bloodstream. Getting sweat and possible dirt in it would be bad.

Really? That's nothing. I can describe some really gross stuff if you'd like.

Do not understand why the Union did not insist on larger rosters in general and larger rosters on game day.

That would stop a lot of this.

The other thing is weight limits on these players. We really do not need 350 lb plus lineman for this game to be enjoyable.

The human body is not designed to carry that much weight.

It is simply a matter of time before a player dies on the field.

Then, just like the brain injury business, will the NFL get serious about protecting these men, from themselves and predatory owners.

I read the full story today and it disturbed me....disturbed me worst than what my Ortho Surgeon (who used to be the Giants Ortho) shared about what he and the other 3 doctors did to get those men ready to play as they were 'commodoties'.
