Eric Wright has a concussion:

From JBF.com:

=================================================



The leader of the New Schiano Order doesn’t like to detail injuries more than NFL rules mandate. Joe gets that.

However, Joe thinks the head coach is taking things a little far when it comes to what he calls the ”the dreaded C Word.”

No, Joe doubts Greg Schiano is referring to the gutter slang further popularized in Porky’s 30 years ago. Schiano is talking about “concussion.” Previously, Schiano has shied away from talking about concussions and saying the word. He did it again Monday.

Why? Joe has no idea.

The NFL has gone wild in recent months to openly talk about concussions, aka traumatic brain injuries. The league has tried to limit head injuries via rule changes, established concussion diagnosis protocols, and protected players from returning to play too fast, and the NFL has worked with the military and other groups to study concussions and promoted their efforts.

Even Ray Rice, Schiano’s ol’ Rutgers bell cow, is doing every national interview he can talking about concussions and touting some fancy, allegedly more protective helmet he uses.

But Schiano doesn’t like to say the “C Word.” Eric Wright was drilled in the head Sunday and was very slow coming off the field and apparently suffered a concussion, but on Monday the head coach updated Wright’s status like this.

    “It’s a head. We’ll find out if it’s the dreaded C-Word or not, I’m not sure,” Schiano said of Wright.

Again, Joe doesn’t get why the coach is uncomfortable talking about concussions when league honchos all around him are working hard to make the injury transparent to fans and players.

Today, Schiano said he’s very confident Eric Wright will return against the Chiefs. As for Wright’s injury, it remains unclear.

In other news, Elbert Mack released by the Saints.......
Mack was released after returning to the Saints on Sept. 19. Mack was inactive on gameday the last two weeks. The Saints originally released Mack two days after the final cuts of training camp on Sept. 2.

    I think its the concussion itself that is "dreaded" not the word itself. It is weird that he phrases things that way, but I dont see at as dismissing the nature of the injury or being deceptive about the injury. Even if he is being deceptive, one could argue that is BENEFITING Wright. Remember how the Giants admitted to targeting the 49ers punt returner because he had known concussion issues?

Concussion is a word that deserves to be dreaded. It is like the word Audit. It means that you are going to have to jump through a bunch of regulatory hoops to get back to normal.

Upon hearing this, all drinks are on Bowe/Baldwin/Breaston this evening.

Eric Wright...the opposing WRs BFF.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

I couldn't disagree more. Talib had a bad-bad-bad-bad-bad-bad game against the Giants. Wright was abused in all three of the first 3 games. Also, Talib has, for the most part, has dramically improved his defense against the run/open field tackling.

IMO, Talib had been about a 5 or 6 out of 10

Wright...a 3.

Hell, just Eric's pick 6 alone, should get him at least a 5, right off the bat.

That play was impressive...no doubt...but as an overall product...unimpressive.

^that^ would be like...If I bought a bag of M&Ms and it was filled with rat pellets...but then I end up finding one M&M in the bag....my reaction defintely isn't going to be..."Geez, that one M&M was great".....it's gonna be..."Why was my bag of M&Ms full of sh*t..??"

Then it's probably best that you don't think about the play of Eric Wright...lol

...and definitely not the play of one Josh Freeman...you would never be able to hold any food down then...

Should of known this would turn to #5 sooner rather than later.    Do you go to the shooting range on the weekend, with your Josh Freeman target in hand?

Hahaha, yea...it's all about #5.

Nah...mostly take pictures of Saints fans, Romo, Palin, Carrot-Top, and Jennifer Aniston...

The funny part is...when I hang the Romo pic up..everyone begins shooting at my target from their shooting lane...several people have been escorted off the premises..its a real safety issue.
