Actually the knock on brown was that he DIDNT run north/south. He cut it out WAY too much.
he'll be better, and how many RBs have lasted after missing time with concussion....I will be grabbing brown and passing on Shady
Brian Westbrook might not remember the hit itself, but he still feels the aftermath. It was October 26, 2009, a Monday Night Football game against the Washington Redskins, when the Philadelphia Eagles’ running back banged his head against linebacker London Fletcher’s knee. Westbrook lay motionless on the field for several minutes before being helped to his feet and staggering to the locker room. It was one of two major concussions Westbrook suffered during his nine-year NFL career, and he is still dealing with the effects today.
Westbrook, now retired from the NFL at age 33, suffers headaches and short-term memory loss. He struggles to remember people he met just days before. And he worries about how concussions will affect him later in life, especially amid the suicides of former players like linebacker Junior Seau and new research linking concussions in football to long-term brain trauma and increased chances of developing degenerative diseases.
he tried to play again but was never the same.
