As you all know, the NFL has become obsessed with protecting it's players from head injuries. One of these new rules is that you can be given a 15-yard penalty for a helmet-to-helmet hit on another player, a rule that Packers WR James Jones disagrees with.
“I think the helmet-to-helmet rule, where defenders have to hit at a certain target, I think they need to eliminate that,” Jones said. “I’d rather get hit in the hlemet and shoulder than have a defender take my knees out.”
Before I saw this, I agreed with the league. Now, I think Jones has made a good point. A concussion is nowhere near as bad as a torn ACL, yet the long-term effects will always be there. A torn ACL takes about a year to recover from, head trauma lasts forever.
