Or is it the same number of concussions as usual and the league is just making the concussion stand out because of new rules and attention to the matter?

Crap on a cracker. Though Bush and IAQ have done well, they will get exposed down the stretch. They are role players, and very good ones. But, man, do we need Jenkins, Harper and KV playing together moving forward.

Yeah, I think this is the case. Heck, there are probably fewer concussions these days - certainly fewer than the old days. The league simply identifies them now and doesn't threaten the players if they don't get back on the field.

It's a bummer, but I would much rather have Vaccaro be out for this round versus the 49ers and Seahawks, than to have him be out when we play either of them the next time around, if you get my drift.

The new protocol is what puts it in the lime light.

Reid is out 2-4 weeks but no word on Vernon Davis yet.
That hit Reid took on Tolbert was absolutely brutal. Hopefully Davis sits this Sunday as well...

Love the young buck but you are so right.. gotta hold the head up while making a tackle. Sometimes I think the art of sound fundamental tackling is lacking at this level.

Speedy return Kenny V!
