Is it just me or are there more concussions then ever this season??? Weekly the list just keeps growing and growing... The hits i seen today have been rough, Helmet on helmet shots... D. Jackson, Cribbs.. There was a scare in the Lions, giants game today... it's getting nasty out there!!!

Yeah its definitely increased. This really reminds me of the NHL in the past years. The NFL really needs to look at harsher penalties for helmet to helmet contact, as the NHL did with looking at blindside hits and head contact. Too many players getting hit dangerously. That Falcons/Eagles play today was scary.

a big reason is that these guys are three times bigger, stronger, and faster than years past. Look back 10 years ago and who woulda thought that some of these 300+lbs lineman running sub-mid 5 40s. But you think they would have also improved the equipment.

I think a lot of guys wanting to make "highlight of the night reels" has something to do with it. making the highlight hit of the day puts your name out there, It's a huge price to pay but plays like that help during contract talks. Line up a couple of "highlight" hits could add a extra million on to a contract.
