Concussions are the hot topic in all sports now, not just football. When a player gets hit hard they are given a baseline concussion test. Now, Colts QB Peyton Manning is saying he underperforms on that initial test...

"They have these new (brain) tests we have to take," he said. "Before the season, you have to look at 20 pictures and turn the paper over and then try to draw those 20 pictures. And they do it with words, too. Twenty words, you flip it over, and try to write those 20 words.

"Then, after a concussion, you take the same test and if you do worse than you did on the first test, you can't play. So I just try to do badly on the first test."

Call it competitiveness or stupidity, either way this concussion stuff continues to get scary, like I said earlier - in all sports.
