I guess from the Bengals standpoint, Tee sitting out a few easily winnable games and thus not being able to command a higher long-term contract number with higher stats might be preferable ... though I wouldn't intentionally hold him out to do so. 

 

 

Yeah that'd be pretty scummy but at the same time I have zero faith in the NFL "concussion protocol" actually protecting the players.  Not a doctor but unless someone is displaying some pretty serious symptoms - poor balance, cognitive difficulty - it's on the patient to honestly report that they're still affected.  How hard is a team doctor really going to press them if they claim they're fine?  How many players are going to confess they're still having headaches or whatever and not suit up?

 

If they were at all serious about the long term health of the player I think they'd automatically sit them for 2-3 weeks minimum & longer if they'd had previous concussions.

 

In short, the only thing the NFL is protecting is themselves, from a class action lawsuit..

Gloom and Doom from the local press (Cincinnati Enquirer) ☝️ Don't shoot the messenger.

1. NFL prediction: Cincinnati Bengals at Dallas Cowboys

The Bengals’ offense flat out wasn’t ready to play in the opener, and facing Dallas on the road isn’t exactly the ideal game for Joe Burrow and Co. to get things fully on track.

The Cowboys’ defense is every bit as good as Pittsburgh’s, if not better. The Stealers recorded seven sacks and forced five turnovers against Cincinnati. Dallas led the NFL in takeaways last season, and linebacker Micah Parsons might be the best pass rusher in the league.

Parsons sacked Tom Brady twice in the Cowboys’ 19-3 loss last Sunday. Parsons will move around, looking to exploit weaknesses in the Bengals' rebuilt offensive line. The offensive line may end up being better this season, but it’s probably going to take more than a few games for the unit to gel.No one expects Burrow to throw four interceptions like he did in the opener. But he won't be able to fully settle in until the line shows improvement. And Burrow will have to contend with the best ball-hawking cornerback in the NFL. Trevon Diggs led the NFL in interceptions last year.

Why so down on the Bengals? After all, Dallas will be without quarterback Dak Prescott and the Cowboys’ offense was even worse than Cincinnati’s in the opener.But Dallas has the better defense, and the Cowboys will have homefield advantage. The Bengals are 1-6 all-time in Dallas, with the win coming in 1988.

The Bengals will lose, 17-16.

If that prediction comes to fruition, will it be time to panic? Not at all. The Bengals’ offense will get going soon. It just needs more time after Burrow missed half of training camp, and the first-team offense didn’t get any time on the field in preseason games.

Remember, the Bengals sputtered out of the gate last year after taking it easy in the preseason. They narrowly escaped the opener with a three-point overtime home win against the mediocre Minnesota Vikings. Cincinnati then laid an egg on the road in Week 2, losing 20-17 against a bad Chicago Bears team.

Players have baselines they take in the offseason.  Unfortunately, many players purposely do poorly on these baselines so it makes protocol easier to pass. 

 

Honestly, if a guy actually has a concussion it's hard to fathom that they would be ready and good to go in a week.  Getting concussions back to back is how you really mess up your brain. 

 

The big lawsuits are coming for the NFL and NHL.

Not unreasonable.  Could be another really ugly game with two offenses that can't do squat. 

 

Hope not, but until the Bengals offense shows it has itself together you can't assume it has.

Not sure what to think.

I'm still looking at last week's cluster bump as our fourth preseason game.  At least the first half was.

Really hate to get into the complaining about the refs stuff but Ja'Marr's uncalled and unchallenged touchdown was the obvious difference in the outcome.

After the experience we gained in that game and what we learned, hopefully we can learn and grow from it.

The O line will gel and Joe, who imho may very well have been getting back into NFL fighting form.

So I am not crazy worried.

Refs gonna make mistakes.  That’s why there is a challenge process.  Huge failure of the staff.  Someone has to be in Taylor’s ear telling him to challenge.  If that process isn’t in place I have no words.

Perhaps the right side will—they really didn’t play that bad on Sunday. The left side will be a week to week headache. Volson is in way over his head, and Jonah isn’t able to block for two. 
 

Schmarling (sp) is likely a bandaid. Spain will never hear the phone ring from here. I mused many times since Karras was brought in, that he played more career games at LG than center. Thought it would have been prudent to bring in another true center and have Ted at LG. Can still do it now, but not sure the backup is NFL ready. 
 

The gap has to be filled sometime. Every team knows where to go through now, so Volson will be exploited.

IDK about the NHL but for the NFL? I doubt it. All about the "due diligence" - they're providing doctors and have a policy in place (phony as it may be). Plus, it's the NFL with Dodgy Roger at the helm.  Nothing's going to stick.

The first concussion litigation caught them blind-sided. They never built up a rear guard defense against continuous and repeated exposures to the same risk. Now, they have all of the "you could get seriously hurt long-term if you choose to play" build-ins, plus all of the "remedial" fixes such as rules and upgraded equipment. Not to mention, that the original litigation brought the entire package to the open view of the public. Anyone playing now, is completely in the "assumption of the risk" standard. The league is as safe as in their mothers' arms. They will be home free going forward.

With regards to not challenging Chase’s non-TD:  Your number of challenges are limited, even if you are correct every time…so, you need to be judicious.  
 

In this case, with the ball (incorrectly) spotted where it was, it’s first down at the one-foot line.  Your chances of scoring a TD on one of the next three plays are really, really, really good…and I can therefore understand NOT wasting a challenge.  [Especially with some doubt since Ja’Marr brought the ball back to his left arm and the ball might not have been at the goal line when he stepped out of bounds, in which case it then becomes a question of WHEN he established control of the ball AND when he got the second foot down.  That’s a lot to evaluate in a short period of time.]
 

It is obvious now (based upon what transpired in the next few plays, and based on dozens of replays) that challenging the call would have been prudent.  But, at the time that the challenge had to be made, it was not so obvious.

 

 The problem was the ensuing stupid play call, followed by a false start.

 

[Frankly, any time that it’s that close, the ref should give the TD and let replay change the call if necessary.]

IF the Oline protects him better yes.

 

Tee will probably be out..

Someone stated we need a true W4 and i couldnt agree more.

Thomas and Morgan are great as gunners but not as furst backups.

Trent Taylor isn't the answer either..

 

I see a huge task for JB this week.

Thankfully we have a vert good defense..

Seems to be a requirement that whoever covers the Bengals for the Enquirer must actually hate the Bengals.

September 15th, 2022 at 10:17am CST by Sam Robinson

The Cowboys are set to revisit their unfortunate lineup adjustment of 2020, when Dak Prescott missed much of the season. That year also involved both Dallas’ top tackles being out of the mix. With Prescott expected to be sidelined for several weeks and Tyron Smith out for months, the Cowboys’ 2022 situation is starting to look eerily similar to their 2020 setup — on offense, anyway.

USATSI_16893726-226x300.jpgBut the team has higher-ceiling options up front this time around. First-round pick Tyler Smith made his debut at left tackle, and Pro Football Focus rated him just outside the top 40 at the position during his 69-snap debut. Smith still figures to move back to the guard spot at which he was initially pegged to begin the season. Jason Peters ramp-up period might not last much longer.

[RELATED: Cowboys Won’t Place Prescott On IR]

It depends on his evolving with his conditioning. He didn’t have camp, but, boy, am I glad we got him,” Jerry Jones said of Peters, during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan’s Shan and RJ Show (via the Dallas Morning News). “We’ll have a spot for him. There’s no question that we’re going to be using him, before we’re out and maybe sooner rather than later.”

This puts to rest any concerns about Peters’ age (40) shutting down his viability as a Cowboys O-line option, and with Connor McGovern having suffered an injury in Week 1, the Cowboys need Peters ready ASAP. Peters remains on the team’s practice squad. That said, the Cowboys look to remain patient with Peters. His acclimation period is likely to continue into next week, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News tweets. Peters has yet to go through team drills since joining the Cowboys.

As for McGovern, he suffered a high ankle sprain, according to ESPN.com’s Todd Archer (on Twitter). The Cowboys have declared McGovern, who played just seven snaps in Week 1, out for their Week 2 game against the Bengals.

Dallas added Peters not long after Tyron Smith‘s avulsion fracture. The longtime Eagles blocker is expected to replace Smith at left tackle, but Jones said Peters would also be an option on the right side. Terence Steele is viewed as a potential long-term starter at right tackle, where he has taken over for La’el Collins, who is now with Cincinnati. An O-line featuring Peters, Tyler Smith, center Tyler Biadasz, All-Pro right guard Zack Martin and Steele appears to be Dallas’ best bet for now, though it will be interesting how the team plays it when McGovern returns.

There’s a compatibility in play in staying at one spot, no matter how good a player you are. It lends itself to a better offensive line. But still I think we’ve done pretty good by having Peters come in there,” Jones said. “McGovern shouldn’t be long. He shouldn’t be out long, and we had a good job done by Smith, young Smith, and we got help on the way.”

This is McGovern’s contract year. He has bounced in and out of the Cowboys’ lineup since 2020, making 15 starts after missing his rookie year due to injury. The Cowboys could use McGovern as a swing player behind a Martin-Biadasz-Tyler Smith interior trio. Although the Penn State product was competing with Smith at left guard during training camp, it would be difficult to envision the Cowboys benching their first-round pick after already starting him. Peters’ form might dictate how the Cowboys proceed here as well. For now, the 19th-year veteran is tracking toward becoming a starter on a fourth NFL team.

Soccer is just as bad regarding damage to the brain according to everyone who intelligently studies CTE.

 

Is soccer going to stop being played around the world?

 

No.

 

Neither is football.

The impacts to the head in footy come mostly from heading the ball—which is also one of the most repeated actions. 
 

If one take a look at the modern ball, it is immensely different from balls used in the ‘70’s-‘90’s. They are much lighter now, and have a more giving composition. Old ones got waterlogged and were dangerous for the head. 
 

And younger people playing now do not have the pressure of heading passes, so constant impacts to the head do not occur. 
 

Not that the sport is free from head injuries, but steps taken by world football organizations to help limit head trauma have helped a lot.

what a horseshit article. for a local beat writer to have such an obvious slant is of the many things i hate about sports media. all anyone wants is a click and retweet and rage.. no one cares to actually put in any work to function. the hear that podcast growlin guys are starting to do it too.

lucky for us timelines and progression are a reality, like the bengals offense managed to drive for what should have been 15 second half 18 second half + OT points. Joe did pass for over 300 yards. the offense, even minus higgins, got rollin pretty well after wetting themselves in the first half.

there is ABSOLUTELY no argument against the fact that if its borderline touchdown, you call it a touchdown as it is automatically reviewed anyway. forcing a team in a tight part of the game to get perfect replays and see it and get the challenge out isnt nearly as reasonable as just calling it a touchdown. ESPECIALLY since 5 ft in front of that bafoons eyes chase has the ball in his right arm and foot in the endzone. just call it a touchdown and review like normal...

 

absolutely no excuse not to call it a touchdown.  and if he can see he saw without a doubt he didnt get into the endzone, he should be allowed to officiate anything ever again. it was absolutely right in front of him.

 

also i think our booth staff sucks, something is off with info getting to zac quickly. been a few occasions last year and this pitt game. seems odd.

You know..  I'd say so, but after watching one of the worst OL's in recent memory somehow step on their dicks all the way to a Superbowl IDK what to think.  I mean, sure the rest of the team carried them, but if they can achieve that maybe all we really need them to be is average.

 

Said it before but a QB getting hit like that every week should not have been able to do what he did.  I just hope they understand that too - 50+ sacks a year is not a recipe for any kind of long-term success.

50+ sacks a year is a recipe for early retirement ala Andrew Luck.
