He was on the turf motionless for a least a minute if not longer. If he does in fact have a Grade 3 concussion & would get another one a week or two later it could be life threatening & permanent brain damage.

The young man is only 22, 23 and suffered a very serious injury that could be life altering. Right after it happened, I immediately began to pray for him because it looked bad, I mean Darryl Stingley (paralysis) bad. I just don't think the Saints medical staff & trainers are taking a chance with it.

Side note: IMO I don't think the Saints staff handled Swann's triple concussion situation well last year. Hopefully he has no long term effects.
Well if it is indeed that high of a grade, then I can understand. But all I heard was that is was all good news. I wasn't given any indication that it was anything other than a regular concussion. I was worried about him as well when they were having to immobilize him. But that isn't the most uncommon medical practice if the doctors even think there might be a serious problem.

So I just took Payton's comments the other day to mean that it was a concussion and he might miss a few weeks. While we're all relieved he didn't suffer spinal damage, it seems that Sean's initial comments really downplayed the situation a bit much.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: What's the word on PJ Williams

Second time in a week that I saw Jason David's name on this board.
You know a lot of us paid good money to Psychotherapists to get
him out of our heads.

He wasn't a good CB, but he gave it 110% on every play and never blamed anyone else. If Jonathan Sullivan had 1/2 the heart and drive Jason David had, he would have been a multiple pro bowler.

I agree. I met him once and he was a super nice guy. We actually had a long conversation that had nothing to do with sports. He has a very positive outlook on life and believes in the process of positive thinking

Jason David excelled in the Cover 2. He was doomed to failure the way he was used.
