Re: 1986 Bengals Health Problems
I read the article and have a couple of thoughts.
It would be very interesting to see a knee replacement and hip replacement percentage of NFL players as opposed to the general public. How much higher is that.
I would imagine that the aches and pains are much more prevalent in NFL players than the general public, but at the same time I know as you age you begin to stiffen up and age.
The concussion thing is very scary. I think that is the most dangerous thing associated with football. Especially for the decades until lately when the NFL seems to have made concussions a point of concern.
I would also like to see a study as to whether depression is more prevalent in the NFL as opposed to the rest of society.
