NFL- Where's The Recovery Time?

Somehow the necessity of recovery time for the players following normal Sunday games has bowed down to "the money".
Games on Thursdays have become routine- Thanksgiving day there were THREE games.
With the league "supposedly" so concerned with player safety, how can they sanction this!
Ask any players & they
'll tell you that playing Sunday & then again Thursday is BRUTAL!!
Even college has allowed Thurs games following routine Sat games
Seems that the mighty NFL & just as mighty ESPN dictate "the rules of the road" & it's all about the dollars!
OH - WELL!-- Just not smart when it comes to the safety & protection of the players.
On this whole topic, I'm excited about having author, blogger, Matt Chaney, discussing his book "Spiral of Denial"-Muscle Doping in American Football on "The Sports Doctor" (6:30-7pm,WDCB, 90.9fm) this wk 11/29. He'll chime in with his views on all of this.
See ya later!

    The Sports Doctor

    Born and raised in New York, I've practiced podiatry and sports medicine for over 30 years in the Aurora- Naperville area (almost BUT NOT QUITE LONG ENOUGH to lose my NY accent ). You can check that out for yourselves by listening to Sports Doctor Radio, on Join me live Wednesday's, 3-4 pm. CST. The Sports Doctor was formerly on WDCB 90.9 FM in Chicago for more than 20 years. The Sports Doctor is also read in newspaper columns including The Aurora Beacon News and the Naperville Sun. Also please 'like' my Facebook page, "Sports Doctor Radio" and follow me on Twitter @SportsDocRadio to keep in touch! Go to to hear many past shows and read my many articles. My specialty in sports medicine is orthotic therapy, combined with specific training and strengthening of the feet and ankles. I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best athletes in all sports including many of the Super Bowl Bears back in the 80's, tennis greats John McEnroe and Tracy Austin, and numerous Cubs and White Sox. A true highlight of my career was watching Naperville's hometown figure skater Evan Lysacek, who I first saw as a nine-year-old and put orthotics in his skates, win the 2010 Olympic Gold Medal for men's figure skating with his orthotics (updated of course!) still in his boots. These high performance youngsters still remain my passion. Another big interest of mine is the challenge of our countries greatest epidemic: childhood obesity. Join me on Facebook and Twitter for updates on this important topic.
