The NFL is improving its stance toward concussion protocol and they coordinated extensive laboratory research with biomechanical experts to see which helmets reduce head impact severity. We also have the Top 10 fan bases, according to Colin Cowherd (hint, he’s not a Browns fan) and Aaron Donald’s commitment to the Pitt Football Championship Fund.
