You can not be hit at bulldozer strength game after game, season after season, year after year and at the end of that career find that your cranial system is still 100% intact! This is relative to all the recent suicides that have come from ex NFL players, the latest, Junior Seau. As well as another player recently retired, who committed suicide in July this past year. This is not a game for the weak and yet the human body can only take so much abuse.
