    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets' coaching staff didn't know Greg McElroy had been experiencing concussion symptoms this week.


    His teammates did.


    According to several players McElroy confided in, the quarterback had been wrestling for days with the decision to tell the Jets' medical staff of his symptoms.
    Oh, Susanna. Oh, don't you cry for me, for I come from Alabama with a banjeaux on my knee. G'wan to Louisiana my true love for to see.

    I seem to recall some strange guy, in Texas, after GMac was drafted, was afraid this sort of thing would happen. And hoped he would just get a normal job, like the rest of us.

    Maybe the guy he really needs to talk to is Kevin Turner. We don't need another of our greats to meet the same fate.

    (Pretty sure our Fearless Leader had similar sentiments.)
    "He's crazy, Doc. He won't fly with me. I take good care of him, but he won't. He's crazy, alright."
    "There, that's proof, isn't it?. They all say I'm crazy."
    "They're crazy."
    "Then why don't you ground them?"
    "Why don't they ask?"
    "Because they're crazy, that's why."
    "Of course they're crazy. I just told you that. You can't let crazy people decide if you are crazy or not, can you?"

    One game at QB for the Jets is like a whole season playing for another team.

    Eleven sacks in one game? Nothing more needs to be said...

    "I think I'm OK, what do you think?" I've been asked that question twice now by persons who'd had devastating head injuries. You knew they weren't, because anyone who's really "OK" doesn't even ask that question, even if you hadn't noted the other symptoms. I lied both times with my answer...
