Even with all of the information out there regarding concussions and the long-term effects of playing football, Houston Texans linebacker Bryan Braman scoffs at the facts. Braman was covering a punt Sunday and lost his helmet, but still managed to deliver a hit. A crushing, head first, helmet-less hit. After the play, Braman looked as if he was severely concussed or he was pulling a classic tough guy move by pretending nothing happened. Either way, Braman is sick.
By the way, playing without a helmet is nuts but playing barefoot would be even crazier. I would be petrified getting my toes stepped on by cleats. If Braman can do that, I will proclaim him as the sickest man in football.
