Just saw this article on ESPN with Channing Crowder of the Miami Dolphins. The summary is, "You give me a helmet to use, I'm going to use it to hit people." http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=5708701&campaign=rss&source=ESPNHeadlines
Instantly reminded me of an article the WSJ did on concussions and the role of the helmet in the NFL. It was posted a while back on mgoblog because WSJ interviewed Jake Long about it, and Chad Henne as well (though I could be mistaken). Does anyone have the link to that article to repost it?
Maybe it's time to take a second look at the idea. I'm all for big hits in football, but leading with the helmet and attacking another player's head with your head just seems stupid.
