Is it the off season programs, players training on there own, freak injuries?

Is that for the entire 2012 season or just the 2012 season through Week 7?

I felt players were getting injured more this year than previous years. That's a really shocking number and it doesn't help the longevity of the NFL. I'm starting to feel like this game could no longer exist in 20 years.

Maybe it's just me, but it feels like a ton of these are non-contact injuries.

for the love of God it is time to expand the rosters to 60. game day suit 52. Especially if they do the unthinkable and go to 18 game seasons. That's the only solution I've got on the matter.

There is simply too much money to be made for the NFL to go out of business, barring government sanctions of sorts.

There are enough individuals who would rather pursue a career as a professional athlete for the NFL to continue to be a successful organization.

Will players be able to sue over knee issues now that the concussion debate has been tackled and concussions are down league wide?

A lot of Qb lower body injuries I've noticed. Cutler, Bradford, Hoyer, EJ Emanuel.

Could be a result of having to go low to avoid a helmet to helmet hit.

Could a lot of the lower body injuries be due to Players tackling low now and adding even more stress to the legs and joins from hits?

Need to do a study on field turf vs natural grass for the knees I think. Don't know if it would show anything, just a guess to me. Having played on both, field turf has so much grip, sometimes its too much and you can't get your foot out of it in time to avoid a hit.

As far as the concussions, I think dropping your head as a defender should draw a 15 yard flag everytime, doesn't matter if you're hitting a QB, RB, WR, ect.. if you're staring at the ground when you go in for a hit you should be flagged. It's so simple to keep your head up, yet they can't do it in the pros? I've played and now recruit at the D3 level, haven't seen a single concussion at the 15+ HS games I've attended this year, it's unreal how many NFL players don't know how to tackle.

I think he's talking about a supply shortage, and if that's the case I think he is right considering contact sports among youths get less popular every year. In a couple decades, 99% of NFL players will come from Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. The talent pool will deplete and fans won't be willing to pay as much as they do now for possibly less talented players.

I suppose this would help teams overcome injuries quicker, but I don't see how that helps reduce the injuries. It's not like teams go far into the depth chart in games right now; generally they want their best players on the field as much as possible.

The Cutler injury has nothing to do with going low, just a freak thing.

Ditto and Hoyer and Manuel - didn't see Bradford's at all but the other 2 were both running down the sideline where the h2h rule doesn't apply. Plus, Hoyer's happened as he was SLIDING.
