Its really good news to hear that there is a chance that he will be able to walk again. Just yesturday they were already saying how he would never walk again. Im really happy for him, because any spinal injury is the worst injury that can happen in football besides death. I hope he pulls through and makes a successful recovery.

I heard that there is a possibility that he could walk out of the hospital in a month. When I heard that, I was shocked. It sounded bad the night before. Good for him, though.

Those are great news. Last I heard, it was a life-threatening injury and now seems like he might be able to walk again and go on with his life. It's scary to think that someone so young can lose it all just due to a freak accident. I hope he makes a full recovery.

Now that concussions have a face on them who survived, I bet that the league changes its policy on it. Make it safer. I know that you never want a guy to get hurt, but this will give the NFL a shot in the arm to do something.

Make the NFL safer? It's still and hopefully will always be tackle football. It is a shame what has happened to players like Everett and Reggie Brown, but it's is what makes the game so dangerous that makes it so compelling. The objective of the game is to hit your opponents and score points, until that changes we'll continue to see more sever injuries such as this one.

Nearly everyday there is a positive update on Everett's condition - today they said he has increased strength in his legs and hands.

I'm not talking about not letting them play the game. I actually hate that stupid running into the kicker thing, or roughing the QB.

By make it safer, I am talking about the equipment. Safer pads, and more importantly, safer helmets.

If they dont do anything, someone is going to get killed.

Isn't the NFL already safe enough? They're overprotecting the QB.

Ugh, read what I just said, man. :wink:

By "make it safer," I mean better equipment. Safer helmets, especially. Not "dont hit the reciever above the waiste" type thing.

I know. I was just saying that statement in general.

Well, then, yeah. They do protect the quarterback too much.

Give him a good helmet, and let the lineman pound his ass. :mrgreen:

Damn, if I was David Carr that year, I would have killed every single one of my offensive lineman...

Just look at the line protect Matt Schaub. Funny how they protect Schaub and let Carr get run over by a bunch of cars.
