I don't worry about McIlrath. It's somewhat of a concern, I guess, but that's the gamble you take when you draft a guy like him.
Totally agree. I guess in game (playing) concussions are bound to increase due to the basic physics equation of: greater speed x greater size x same brain mass = greater damage to head . Even if equipment is somewhat better.
Otoh the same might be applicable to fighting as the goon squad players are also stronger/bigger now than 20 years ago as well. No?
