Favre's thousands of concussions: Legendary QBs shocking statement

Concussions are the NFL's number one concern when it comes to player health today, however, that wasn't necessarily the case in the past as Wednesday's gloomy statements from legendary Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre show.

The former Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings quarterback spoke on the subject during his appearance on TMZ's The Bubba Army radio show, where he talked about information he didn't have about concussions and what he knows now.

How did Brett Favre's concussions happen?

"Concussions happen all the time," Favre said. "You get tackled and your head hits the turf, you see flashes of light or ringing in your ears but you're able to play, that's a concussion."

Favre said that with what he knows now, every time that happened to him in his career he suffered a concussion, however, he didn't say he didn't know that when he played so, at the time, he thought that during his 20-year career he suffered few concussions, however, what he says at this point is alarming.

How many concussions did Brett Favre suffer?

"So, based on that, (I've suffered) thousands (of concussions)," Favre said. "Had to be, because every time my head hit the turf, there was ringing or stars going, flash bulbs, but I was still able to play."

The most well-known part of Favre's career is his back-to-back games, in total he started 297 games in a row, which is and looks like it will long be the all-time mark for a quarterback, however, knowing that he did it under the circumstances he describes may cause terror about the possible effects of playing under those conditions.

For the time being, the NFL's "Iron Man" is dedicated to being a spokesman for the recognition of head injury protection in football, among other things, he has asked that the sport not be allowed to be played with tackles until after the age of 14.
