Re: Thoughts on the NFL

I don't think this is the video he was talking about, but I couldn't find any video in which Reed said anything harmful or any thing that would be cause for concern. Reed's "attitude problem" is probably nothing at all.

1. Cincinnati and Houston will play for the AFC championship.

2. The Redskins will finish the regular season at 11-5.

3. Will people ever become so obsessed with safety in football that it will eventually be outlawed or look nothing like the current product?

4. D.J. Hayden will perform the best of all the rookies and will easily make the Pro Bowl.

5. What are the chances that in 10 years the Redskins will have a different name?

6. If you could choose one offensive player, one defensive player, and one special team player to build a long-term team around, who would they be?

7. Which player in the NFL will suffer a career-ending injury this season?

8. I don't think the 49ers are the real deal. I think their success will be over in a year or two.

9. Did any of you play college football? Are any of you closely related to an NFL player?

10. If you could change one thing in the NFL, what would it be?
I don't think there is anything wrong with what the league is doing in terms of safety. I believe not long after the birth of football, passing was implemented for safety reasons. So the game has been evolving ever since its beginnings, and will continue to evolve.

In the end, the owners are the ones that empower the Commish to make these changes. I highly doubt that they would do anything to drastically affect the game to the point where it would lose its popularity. I don't know much about boxing, but I don't think it has change that much and look where it stands in terms of popularity.

I hope you're right, Ruhskins. But the league has steadily gotten safer and safer and eventually it might be too safe. I hope the NFL never degrades far enough that injuries are completely gone. That might sound a bit cynical, but there should always be an element of danger involved in football, in my opinion. Football players playing through injury have provided some of the most inspiring moments in sports.

What about this question? Who would you all choose?

So a player breaking a leg or tearing every ligament in their knee doesn't count as dangerous injury? I think that given the speed of the game, it is not possible to make the game 100% safe. However, that shouldn't stop the league from preventing morons like James Harrison from tackling players head first.

I know the NFL still has dangerous injuries. I'm saying I hope the NFL never degrades far enough that the element of danger is taken out. And yes, I agree with you about head hits. I would be very happy if concussions would be completely eliminated.

If you have running and contact you will always have injuries. Heck, didn't Fred Davis blow his Achilles just running into the end zone last year, no contact? Guys can run down the field and and pull hammys and groins, just ask Miles Austin. He is the poster boy for non contact leg injuries. dude is awesome but can't stay on the field.
