As someone who’s had a couple of concussions, I can tell you that the feeling of lost time and lost memory — and the ensuing days and weeks of just not feeling yourself — is really something you should avoid. Why the NFL allows players to go back to play as early as one week after a knockout concussion is beyond me. Trust me when I tell you that it takes a very, very long time before you’re back to 100% and not feeling like something is wrong in your head. Now, for your cringing and enjoyment, a collection of decorticate and decerebrate posturing resulting from damage to the brain from knockouts.
