    On Wednesday, Rodgers shot down speculation that he sustained another concussion on the Peppers hit and credited his helmet for potentially preventing another significant head injury.

    Rodgers switched helmets after sustaining two concussions earlier this season, although he has been hesitant to share details about how the new helmet might be safer.

    "Not too much to talk about," Rodgers said. "I didn't have a concussion. I want to dispel that rumor. No concussion. I was fine. Yeah. Helmets are designed to prevent concussions, I think."

    Yeah, that is BS. I swear the NFL just wants these players to lay down and let the other team score. Of course, that's what the Bears did on the rest of the plays other than this one so....

    A 3rd string QB who no one prepped for and I doubt they had a lot of tape on at that.

    As for the fine, I would not have a problem with it is I understood where they drew the line. Though I really do not have a problem with zero tolerance head shots

    Dude you seriously need to calm down. I only said that to get a rise out of you. You didn't dissappoint. You can't go through life like that. Someone will check you some day.
