Again, Patrice Bergeron had two major concussions and is fine now.

It seems like the NFL standards are a hell of a lot weaker than NHL. Guys seem to routinely come back from concussions in under a week, most are a couple weeks max.

Also, the guys who are really messed up now played 20-30 years ago, when they gave you a couple Advil and told you to get back on the field, where you got hit again. Nowadays you heal for months until you are 100%. Different situation.


Me, I've had one major concussion/whiplash issue. If I have a second, I might re-think things. I'm sure by the time I had a third I would be done.
