Maybe the Broncos and Peyton Manning or the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson, but the Packers have already played the Seahawks and beat them pretty confidently. Some people could say that the Cowboys could have been a team with a real chance of making it to the Super Bowl, but with Dez Bryant and Tony Romo out for a few more weeks, that doesn’t seem realistic. The Patriots; on the other hand though, look to be the favorites from the AFC. The Patriots have either the number one or number two quarterback either in front or behind Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady. Tom Brady and the Patriots offense is literally the best in the league and it shows.
As the stands continue to fill and the fans continue to hollar, many players feel the pressure to perform at their best, even if that means pushing through a serious injury. On the day following Kuechly’s concussion hit, NFL fans mostly discussed how the Panthers won the game, while some gossiped about the Kuechly’s tears. Does getting carted off the field while crying make Kuechly any less of a man or athlete? Does it make him weak? The answer is no.
Within class, we have been discussing the topic of allowing your son to play the physical sport football. Would you allow your son to play football with having the insight of all the risks they would be taking? I would not allow my son to play football because of how physical it is. High school football has the highest rate of concussions at 47.1% over all the other sports played by high schoolers. Within the article, “Would you let your son play football” on ESPN.com states, “The issue of player safety and concussions would have a very real, very fresh face.” This is significant because once a football player dies they are examined, which the majority of football players have serious injuries in their brains.
Robert Griffin3 or Johnny Manziel is one the biggest debates that have come into the history of the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys are looking for a quarterback that can backup Tony Romo when he is injured. These to past Heisman trophy winners have come into the NFL with high expectation but neither one have lived up to their goals. Johnny Manziel went to the Cleveland Browns to with the team on his shoulders but he has steady been letting the team down. With getting in trouble about missing practices and costly sneaking off to go to practices.
The paycheck comes in on this day, the game is on that day, and at all times, you know where you belong”(Kluwe). Life for NFL player’s can be financially tough for them when they retire. How their job can be very demanding is because a lot of these athletes have to play whether their injured or not and many of the guys in the nfl risk getting permanent damage to their brains and many times these guys are pressured to use performance Enhancing Drugs to make them better at their sport so they risk they risk their reputations and body for their
Many people question why concussions happen so often within the NFL? After all, these players know how to tackle properly and have they best equipment however the size of these men along with the violent nature of the game is what causes these concussions. Concussions happen at around 140 per season with several players receiving multiple concussions within the same year (Halchin). Team doctors have been extremely cautious in letting these athletes return to the filed of play after being diagnosed with a concussion. Halchin believed that the NFL does a wonderful job in protecting it’s players and said that until hitting is eliminated from the game completely, concussions will be a reoccurring injury and a risk that players have to deal with
That a full paid scholarship is plenty enough (McCauley). The ones who introduce this opinion into the conversation fail to understand the daily struggles a college athlete suffers. Without any outcome, college football players are putting forth their utmost effort for no cause. The twenty to twenty five thousand dollar scholarships do not even put a dent in the billions brought in by the NCAA. This is why this situation is so commonly debated as people believe it is highly unfair to the student athletes.
In Rick Reilly’s article “the sins of the father” beginning with “What a fool I was”, Reilly shows his regret of making Joe Paterno, a well-know, honorable, winning football coach of Penn State Nittany Lions a saint without knowing what Paterno had done. The exigence is that Paterno, who brought 409 victories to his team, covers the Penn State child sex abuse scandal for his own benefit and reputation. Reilly takes a stance and tries to convince his audience, people who cares about football sports and cares about this particular scandal of Paterno, that what Paterno contributes to his team could not free him from his fault. Paterno should still be blamed for his indulgence towards Sandusky’s crime. Reilly uses the sentence “what an… I was”
‘Concussion’ Official Movie Trailer Will Smith takes on a controversial role, one that will reveal earth shattering information about one of America’s favorite sports, football. Smith’s character exposes the dangers and lifelong repercussions that haunt an alarming amount of former football players, possibly even younger than high school. For the players and those that love or have loved a former player with concussion syndrome, this movie promises to alleviate the virginal denial that prohibits proper treatment for its victims. A subject near and dear to my heart, welcome or not, I personally believe this movie will change the face of football.
Similarly, the documentary uses a logos appeal when it stuns the audience with results of a survey that say 42% of the surveyed athletes say that their biggest challenge in life is dealing with injuries from playing, and a whopping 57% of players experienced a concussion while participating in professional sports. The evidence provided in each article is clearly concerning opposing sides, but the authors of each chose to use the method of a logos appeal to draw the audience in and convince them further with a logical appeal. A final characteristic that all three sources share is the mention of injuries associated with being a professional athlete. “Life After Football” shows
One of the players took the game so hard that he did not want to come together with the team. Coach Newton said to everyone,” Keep your heads up every one of us are winners in his book.” As I play football today the quote my coach gave me to keep in my head helps me with a lot. When I turned 17 I got the quote tattooed on my chest so if I am doing something and I try to give up it makes me grind harder. I never give up on something I love or like to do. I want to make history in my school and in collage and etc.
My Football coach is one of the toughest Football coaches but he is also one of the most Generous people I know. He always wants the best for me and our team, He makes us push harder when we are sprinting at the end of practice, when our legs are starting to give out he keeps pushing us to go harder. Whenever in games when we aren 't doing as well he always cheers us up and tell us just to keep playing. From what my past coaches have taught me it 's nothing like what Coach Matt has done for me, He always wants the best for me and I remembered this one practice last season he said to me “If you try at anything you do you will make it far kid” and I always remembered it and looked up to it, I always lived by that because it meant alot to me
Should College Football players get paid to play college football ? This is a very crazy case that a lot of people talk about but something that some people should really think about. Every college football as a dream that one day they will make it to the NFL to make money and do they thing they love to play football. But just in one blink of a eye that could be gone by playing football . I don’t belive that players should get paid because if you have a full ride why would they pay you, your going to there school for free all you have to do is play football for them.
If gone up to guys that are 6’2 250 pounds in 7th grade. When you play center, defensive tackle are huge. Everybody would think I would not be good in a game with my new positions, judging me thinking I would be bad this year, but little did they know coach wanted me to start defensive end and center. When I told them that they thought I was gonna do bad they had their heads down nervous I would do bad every snap. In practice I was doing pretty good they thought I’d do bad going 100% full contact everything.
