Quinn played with concussion

Quinn says he played with concussion
Posted by Mike Florio on November 7, 2012, 10:58 PM EST


The ultimate test of the league’s procedures for spotting concussions is that they don’t work.

Case in point: Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn suffered a concussion when he was struck by a knee in the helmet during the first quarter of a game against the Raiders on October 28. He stayed in the game.

According to the Associated Press, Quinn told reporters he had problems with his vision after the incident, but he stayed in the game — even though he put on the wrong helmet while on the sidelines.

Later in the quarter, Quinn was sacked. Quinn explained that he had “tunnel vision,” and he was unable to see the Raiders’ defensive backs when he threw an interception.

Quinn admitted that he wanted to keep playing. “That’s why I tried to stay in the game, because it was the first opportunity for me in a while,” Quinn said. “I tried to play through it, and that’s my fault for not being smart about it.”

That’s why the league needs to keep working on improving the methods for spotting concussions; players typically don’t want their concussions to be spotted.

In Quinn’s case, he wasn’t even checked for a concussion despite taking a knee to the head and later putting on the wrong helmet. Whatever the league does in these situations, it needs to do enough so that players like Quinn won’t slip through the cracks and end up back on the field.

Well that explains why this number one draft pick sucked. By all means, continue to give him more chances to show us what he's got.

He knew that if he went out with an injury, it was over. Cassel is the starter now for the rest of the season and Quinn will be looking for a real job after the season.
both need to find new Careers because they Cannot play QB at the pro level.

I'm beginning to think that Pioli has a concussion and needs to be benched. He has tunnel vision with Matt Cassel and is blind to criticism. I think he needs to be put on medical leave, for the sake of the NFL.

Cassel is the starter because he's the best QB on the roster. Sad, but true.
