1. Well, the NFL won’t be handing out suspensions to players who make hard hits. Instead, they will keep it to fines. They are right in doing so because a suspension is too much of a price to pay. Heavy fines are the closest thing to a fair price. I just dislike seeing players getting hit and having career-ending injuries. Concussions may also lead to death in athletes. I always remember those terrifying and out of place hits on Trent Green. I do realize that football is fast-paced and that players cannot help those terrible tackles sometimes because of the speed of the game.
2. Speaking of Trent Green, let us take a little look-see at his career. Green is one of the top 200 players in NFL history. He threw for over 4,000 yards three times in his career, he once led the league in TD%, and he once led the league in adjusted yards per attempt. In 2003 and 2005, Green made the Pro-Bowl roster. Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, Randall Cunningham, Joe Theismann, Jeff Garcia, Rich Gannon, Joe Namath, Tom Brady, Roger Staubach, and Jim Zorn all have similar careers to Green. Four years of his career have seen him as a top 10 fantasy quarterback. In 2003 and 2004, he was 4th both seasons. In 2004, he was the 23rd best QB fantasy-wise. That was the highest mark of his career.
3. Here is some more about Trent Green. He wore the number ten his entire career, except for 2008 when he wore the number 12 with the Rams. 2008 was the last year of his storied career. He was drafted in 1993 by the Chargers in the 8th round. Green spent 1997 and 1998 with the Redskins, 2000 and 2008 with St.Louis, 2001-2006 with the Chiefs, and 2007 with Miami. Trent Green was actually born in St. Louis and went to college at Indiana.
