    Concussion rules change games and maybe Superbowl Champs...

    Just watched Bronco/Packers SB.T Davis was out the whole 2nd Quarter with a "mild concussion". He returned for 2nd half and wound up as MVP. Today he would not have been allowed to return. Would Elway have won his 1st SB if that were the case?

    It wasn't a mild concussion. It was a migraine attack that Davis had a history of. He said that he could not even see on the bootleg td run by john elway. He was simply used as a decoy on the play.

    Correct. He had one of the worse documented migraine conditions ever reported in pro sports. I read articles in which his physician would send him to the hospital and give him morphine on many occasions. He would also lock himself up for 2 - 3 days in his home with no sunlight because he was almost blinded by the sickness and pain.

    Yeah it is crazy. He was a tough guy to play as he did with this chronic illness.
