A second concussion in such a short time threatens careers. The staff isn’t going to keep or lose their jobs by 1 game. Certainly not Arizona. And yes they should win even without him. Even AAA is calling for the win without him - as have all the posts before the news came out in this thread. Either way in a 3-10 season, the risk >>>> reward of playing him. Sorry if that logic eludes you. It does elude me considering they’ve played players within a week of a concussion who have cleared protocol. DJ Jones being one of them just off the top of my head and he gets his head hit every single snap. I get what you’re saying but if you clear protocol and can’t play because the risk is too high then the protocol needs to change. Also interesting, Wilson missed 3 games in 10 years with Seattle. He’s missed 2 this season with Denver and in both he was deemed able to play and the coaching staff chose to sit him out to be cautious. You can’t predict injuries and I get that and there’s points in protecting players from themselves. But as a fan, based on this season and based on play call changes when Rypien plays, not have some what of a feeling they prefer Rypien to Wilson. But you can’t bench the guy you traded 2 drafts for and paid $250M, but what you can do is when he hits the injury report extend him a week. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
