    It was a bad flag. Smith came in with a shoulder tackle, but both helmets went down. How is a defender not going to have helmet contact on a play like that?

    These concussion aversion rules may end up ending players' seasons or careers with knees getting blown out from low tackles.

    Yep and we're already seeing evidence of that. And there's such a simple solution to all of this ... if you don't want brain damage later in life, DON'T play football! Despite all of the evidence and data they now have about health problems after football, you still don't see anyone passing up a career in the NFL for an office job.
