    Default Lolley's mid-week blog

    Madison is back

    The Steelers today signed cornerback/special teams ace Anthony Madison, who was waived Tuesday by the Colts.

    To make room for Madison on the active roster, they released Corey Ivy. Ivy had been signed last week to help bolster the special teams unit.

    Madison, of course, led the Steelers in special teams tackles with 25 in 2008 but was released in training camp.

    [HIGH-LIGHT] Guard Chris Kemoeatu went through a full practice today, as did quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    Troy Polamalu is still out.

    From the Associated Press today:

    "NFL teams now have new, stricter instructions for when players should be allowed to return to games or practices after head injuries, guidelines that go into effect this week.

    In the latest step by the league to address a hot-button issue, commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to the 32 clubs Wednesday saying a player who gets a concussion should not return to action on the same day if he shows certain signs or symptoms.

    Those include an inability to remember assignments or plays, a gap in memory, persistent dizziness, and persistent headaches.

    The old standard, established in 2007, said a player should not be allowed to return to the same game if he lost consciousness.

    Wednesday’s memo also says players “are to be encouraged to be candid with team medical staffs and fully disclose any signs or symptoms that may be associated with a concussion.”


    Nearly one-fifth of 160 NFL players surveyed by The Associated Press from Nov. 2-15 replied that they have hidden or played down the effects of a concussion."

    Only way to get players to be candid is to make it not such a big deal if they miss a game. To do this I think they would have to expand the roster and have more protected players you can have on your team on the practice squad. They would also need to expand the salary cap so a team could have more than one top level player at key positions.

    Very bad idea. There isn't enough talent to have multiple top talent across the league. It would make more have and have nots, because if the cap gets too high only some teams can afford it and they will pool to much talent, you might as well be baseball.

    Not to mention, if salary cap goes up then you will see ticket prices and memorabilia sky rocket exponentially to compete, and you can kiss football on non-pay networks GOODBYE!!!
