In the documentary, A Football Life, Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw speaks about his amazing career … and the bouts of depression he endures as a result.

The depression may be a sign of  CTE, but medical professionals cannot diagnose the scourge of a disease without examining the actual brain tissue.

In previous articles, The Baltimore Post looked at the damaging impacts on football players of all ages — youth, high school, college, and professional.

In the past few of weeks of watching college and professional football, we have seen at least five cases of players being carted off the field on stretchers as a result of head or spinal injuries.

After Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph was rendered unconscious following a rather brutal hit, the NFL gave this response regarding his well-being.

Statistics reveal that if just 10% of parents decide not to allow their children to play football, the sport will die over time.

We understand that may upset some people, but one has to believe that the well being of the people who brutalize their bodies for the sport is much more important than having something to watch on Sundays.

We have additional evidence of this brutal sport and its toll on the human body below.

With that, we will wrap up this column, but not before throwing the challenge flag and letting you, the reader, decide whether or not a penalty should be assessed.
