According to SBNation, It appears that Michael Vick has suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the loss to Atlanta. Before you Cowboys fans start cheering, a concussion is never a good thing, and one where you are spitting up blood is horrible news no matter who it is. For all we know, it could have been Tony Romo rung up by some defense and has his career come to a crashing end. After the Jump, a demand to the NFL.
As we all know, the last six weeks of NFL play, including preseason, have seen massive hits and injuries to some players. After two weeks of competitive play, it is time to assess where we are, in the state of this league and it isn't good injury wise. For the record, teams have been hit super hard by injury with both the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Giants suffering major hits. The same can be said for the other 30 teams in the league as well. The Dallas Cowboys are no exception as they faced a fierce San Francisco 49er defense. However, I am not discounting the fact that the Cowboys willed themselves to win the game with the leadership of Tony Romo.
Still, there seems to be a body bag hunt for players in the league this year. For example, Kansas City losing a player, thanks to the efforts of the Detroit Lions mascot, is shocking to say the least. But what takes the cake is the massive concussion Michael Vick suffered to end his career. The rusher managed an attempted sack and slammed Vick's head on the body of one of his own teammates, and as a result, the bozo on Atlanta's defense should be expelled from the league. If the NFL wants to preach safety, don't move the kickoff line to the 35, but suspend players that cause serious injury to others. We don't need this league to become the National BodyBag League.
