The NFL needs more masters like Anquan Boldin. Someone secure enough in his own ability(Too as contractual situation) That he isn afraid to speak up when he sees the league doing which isn quite right. In this instance it those horrendous Thursday night games that may provide fans with an extra night of football, But to date have yet to let them have anything other than bad to mediocre football. Which unfortunately, Normally, Is not Boldin disagreement. Boldin is calling the NFL out because Thursday night games mean a shorter period between games which suggests a shorter recovery period for the players signifies more potential injury to the players. The discussion came about as Boldin addressed both local phoenix media and fans alike on an online chat. He was asked if he had seen the PBS Documentary League of Denial about historical past of concussions in the NFL. Boldin publicly stated he had not seen the doc yet, But credited the league with putting the onus on neurologists and non coaching staff to make game day decisions on the player health and ability to return in the game. But Boldin wasn about to let the league free completely and, To be hones, We believe the league should face more of this. There are things that just don make sense to me, Boldin was estimated in the San Jose Mercury News. Mean if you so considering player safety then why do you have every team in the league playing on Thursday night when they just competed on a Sunday, Knowing how difficult it is for guys to return to being healthy after playing on Sunday? Guys really don feel like they back till probably Thursday or Friday to organize that next week, Boldin says. League can say they doing things guard guys, But I not main guys buying it. Is exactly the type of high profile player that is making these comments. And while it unlikely the league is going to publish and admit the Thursday games do in fact put players in jeopardy, It is this talk that might make the league think twice again about re opening talks of an 18 game season. We thought this notion ended up put to bed, But even as Sept. 23 reports started popping up about the league quietly trying to bring the idea back again. The NFLPA has unswervingly poured water on the idea, But league owners seem intent on thus, causing this to be happen. Additional, Boldin speaking out against a Thursday night game that is already happening might possibly not have much impact on that, But by raising the player safety issue again and publicly pointing out how lightly NFL owners are taking these concerns can impact on silly ideas like an 18 game schedule. Absolutely nothing fundamentally wrong with the current 16 game schedule. Cut away all the rhetoric and posturing by the league and really the only reason for an 18 game schedule is to further line owners pockets. The players have to nip this in the bud before it gets out of control. Boldin consulting out is a nice start. Fans might say health problems really aren their problem, That they wish to see NFL football every night of the week if possible. And they are more than welcome to that viewpoint. But those same folks should be wondering at what point are we just asking too much of our professional athletes. The human body is adaptable to extremely harsh conditions but there only so much punishment normally it takes. League of Denial proved that permanently. Speedily HITS Someone who is taking care of the players and their safety, Albeit with his own interests certainly some of it, Is gambling head coach Mike Tomlin. Having watched receiver Emmanuel Sanders celebrate a touchdown when using a flip as he crossed the goal line, Tomlin decided he had to stop that sort of behaviour. A chance injury. It funny, Tomlin told journalists on Tuesday. Now people can portray that as another demonstration of a win for the No Fun League, But in this case it actually makes a lot of sense big event caught Aaron Rogers going all Brian McCann on Ravens safety Matt Elam after the latter took Randall Cobb out at the knees on a tackle. Cobb has since even noticed he will miss up to two months with a broken fibula. Rogers objected to just how Elam took Cobb down, A view previous head coach, Now NFL analyzer Tony Dungy agreed with. Baltimore head coach Jim Harbaugh said he saw the tackle and felt nothing was wrong using it.
