I'm still not understanding your point....so as long as teams are looking to take out your impact player, you shouldn't play him? What good is Harvin, or any other top receiver then? Let's just trade him for some other mediocre receiver....
You can't FORCE him to play....There's proper concussion protocols now....Tests are done, and he needs to be medically cleared to play....
Every concussion is different...Sometimes you can be good to go in a couple days, sometimes it can take months before you fully recover.
Moreover, "once a team doctor signs off on a player's return, the player is evaluated in person by an unaffiliated concussion expert physician approved by both the NFL and NFL Players Association. This unaffiliated expert also must sign off on the player's health before he is allowed to return to play."
Here you go mate:
The initial treatment is rest, and the team doctors and athletic trainers begin monitoring to see when a player appears to have returned to baseline functioning. Do symptoms return when a player watches practice or when he watches film? Is there return of symptoms with physical activity?
Once symptoms have completely subsided, the player again performs more comprehensive neuropsychological tests interpreted by the team neuropsychologist. There are no pass-fail grades, only additional data for physicians to consider.
If the player is progressing, he would be become eligible for increased physical activity. The workouts would ramp up over a few days if no symptoms occur.
A player feeling normal one day after the game might pass cognitive testing Tuesday and begin a light exercise program, intensify their exercise routine Wednesday, participate in non-contact aspects of practice on Thursday and return to full practice Friday. But if a player has a history of concussions or isn't progressing as quickly as planned, the process moves accordingly.
The medical team increases the exercise regimen to full speed as the player proves he can handle the escalation without incident. Some teams stage controlled contact drills featuring, for example, one lineman blocking another the way they would in an unpadded practice.
"The thing that I think is important here is you don't manage concussions by a calendar," Dr. Herring said. "Some guys may come back in a week. Some guys may come back in six weeks. These steps don't have an expiration date on them. The player's history of injury and other issues come into play."

"The thinking is that we have done our best work, but an automatic second opinion is built in," Herring said. "We've never had a disagreement, but I would welcome it if we did because we could learn from it. This is a trust issue. We need assurances there is no rush to return to play for any reason."
so yeah, there not just going to throw him out there if he's still fucked...
Yeah, I'm not banking on it.....which really fucking sucks, because he doesn't even have to do anything to make a HUUUUGE difference on the field.....just him standing around demands an incredible amount of attention from the opposition's defense.

Vegas odds have SF @ SEA a lot tighter than I thought.
Only a 3.5 point spread and about 39 total points.
I think that line will drop to 3 or maybe even 2.5 with Harvin out.
Broncos/Pats line opened at 7 on Sunday and right now it dropped to 5 with Harris Bronco's best CB out for the season. And most of the public backing the Pats/49ers is another factor that dropped the line.
Yeah that's what I was thinking, but with Bailey out there it's going to be a tempting to throw at him
Likewise for the Manning, other than Talib who is average in my opinion at best, the Pats secondary is weak. The weather in Denver is apparently gonna be mild, little to no wind about 10 degrees C, which could mean a shootout.

? no way. he's a free agent after and he's going to make a killing this off-season.
Talib covers the number one WR and tight ends and literally shuts down the other teams best offensive player most games.
There's a general consensus on how you can evaluate a good corner and that's how the defensive coach plays him.
If you're good, ie. richard sherman, peterson, revis (before he got injured), you don't get any safety help and they put you all alone with the other teams best receiver. Talib plays man coverage with no safety help all the time.
go watch the patriots/ saints game. chris colinsworth basically says he thinks Talib is one of the best corners in the league, he was assigned to play jimmy graham all game and I believe he held jimmy graham to no catches in that game.
plus I think he was on All-Pro 2nd team this year, a recognition that's not a popularity contest that's voted by fans like the pro-bowl.
after reading some of the posts in this thread, im kinda shocked at the amount of misinformation and horrible info spewed out regarding football.
average at best? Now I remember why I don't frequent the revscene nfl thread for a reason.
PS I played DB in highschool so I pay close attention to my corners.
