it amazes me that the independent "head trauma specialist" that was involved in clearing him in the Buffalo game hasn't been leaked by someone.

as for the Dolphins coaching staff, h ere are their names:

They're probably toast too.

Notice if gross motor stability is observed AT ANY POINT there is no return to play.

 I refer you to above video.

They F'd up.

 

 

 

If they couldn't explain it as a response to his body making it happen. They explained it as his back giving out or whatever.

And that is why he should have never taken the field again last week. There are protocols to follow for a reason , no matter what the player says. I wonder what this is going to do to his career. I don't know if he will be able to take some more of this. I wish him well and a quick recovery but i wouldn't play him until he absolutely gets the greenest of green lights.

Well, the league said the protocols were followed. Seems that the protocols aren't strong enough.

Someone is going to take the fall for this. Potentially multiple someones. And with any luck, some sort of positive improvement by the league. Will be interesting to see what happens.

Well, I think that pretty much settles the Q about letting players decide for themselves if they're OK to play.    Tua's case is going to be the textbook of why you can't skirt the rules even when it's a crucial position like QB.

Just hope he's going to be OK - a 2nd concussion so soon after the first is FAR worse than a bad first one.   And no, don't let the PR spin fool anyone.     This would be suprising if he came back for Week 5...and the bigger issue, is the next one, could easily put his career in jeopardy (think Jordan Reed here).  

Just sucks all around.  No one wins here.

I thought they had No-Go protocols. Him wobbling around an shaking his head wasn't enough? Something just doesn't feel right. Like you said, going to be interesting what is going to happen next.

 I agree with all of you sharing this narrative. There is no doubt in my mind that the last time he had a concussion. Now there are certainly different severities of of a concussion some are very mild and very mild and can certainly subside in a week some are much worse and take multiple weeks to heal. If the protocols truly were followed then followed then I agree the protocols are not strong enough. I think what we can all agree on is there is no doubt inMy mind that he suffered a concussion tonight and bathe and based on the spasms he was experiencing with his hands I would say it was a very severe one. Of course that is just a guess based on observation.  I am in no way medical personnel

What did he get hyped up reading my post about Achilles? I didn’t make him go out there.

No, I think it was McDaniel. I think he read your post that said “it doesn’t matter what insanely obvious common sense tells you. It doesn’t matter if you’re risking your colleagues lifelong ability to speak or think… if the guy verbally says he can play in a regular season September game, then let him play” or something.

I mean, I get why McDaniel/anyone on the Dolphins would green light this - we ARE talking about Week 4 vs the Bengals here, who knows what kind of SB implications this game may have. It’s just unfortunate. 

It’s almost like the exact thing that people were afraid of happening, happened. So crazy how eyes work sometimes, just crazy.
