How many times did this happen in the older days when concussion protocols didn’t exist?

Personally never seen it before so back when the game was tougher and much more physical with linebackers deliberately trying to take out quarterbacks legally/illegally.

Quarterbacks had a bounty on their head and we’re coming back the next week after being concussed on a much more regular basis then they are today yet never seen what Tua went through before until now.

The Sunday Thursday turn around has only been around since 2006 and even so all concussions were swept under the rug, I don’t trust Brett farve as far as I could throw him but he recently said he actually believes he received “thousands” of concussions which is an obvious hyperbole.
But there is a large number of deaths linked to cte (junior saus being one of the most polarising), a lot of careers ended from concussions suffered to close together and I believe the threat of second impact syndrome was completely ignored in this instance.

Yes there’s plenty of concussions over the years with guys backing up the following week but how many of them had a guy on the field with his hands seizing up?

Same as a king hit, one unlucky blow can kill you and many many others don’t. All the luck of the draw.
 
If they’d suffered serious brain trauma after suffering a concussion 4 days earlier you may have seen that same response from the body as you can see here it is a natural response to sudden brain trauma.

How do you know there hasn’t been that instance before concussion was under the microscope. I’m willing to bet there has been over the many years the sport has been played especially when players were getting bonuses for taking out the quarterback.
 
I didn’t say that it hasn’t happened before, there have been multiple instances even in recent times of players that suffered head knocks exhibiting the fencing responses, we are of differing opinions and that’s alright I just hope the protocols are looked at and that Tua isn’t out for an extended period of time.

I know the season is still a while away but I'd be surprised if the Chiefs don't at least make the Super bowl.
