“In football, one has to expect that almost every play of every game and practice, they are going to be hitting their heads against each other. Each time that happens, it’s around 20 G’s or more. That is the equivalent of driving a car at 35 miles into a brick wall. A thousand to 1500 times per year.”

—Robert Stern, PhD Neuropsychologist

"A lot of people think we're gladiators, but we're human beings. We get injured and we've got the rest of our lives to worry about. Playing football is like a vapor - it's here and it's gone - and you still have the rest of your life to live." - New York Jets offensive lineman Damien Woody.

"I've known of players hiding concussions. ... Sometimes players aren't real sure. They hit their head, they get a little cuckoo for a little while. It happens all the time." - Kansas City Chiefs center Rudy Niswanger.

"You get a concussion, they've got to take you out of the game. So if you can hide it and conceal it as much as possible, you pay for it the next day, but you'll be able to ... stay in the game." - Washington Redskins fullback Mike Sellers.

“I’m fortunate to have found out early, in 1990, just two years after I retired, that I have neurological damage. I try to manage it. I know what can trigger headaches and try to avoid it. I have short term memory problems, so I make a special effort to remember people and names. I have to work harder, but it’s important.”

–Hall of Fame linebacker, Harry Carson

“You are supposed to be tough. You are supposed to play through pain. You are not supposed to cry. We are taught that early on in the game as kids. Tough sport. Brutal sport. It’s like the gladiator. People want to see the big hits. They wind up on Sports Center. And as a player, you don’t want to admit you are injured.”
–Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson
