I must be a little dense, because I just don't get it. What are you trying to tell us? On the one hand, you bemoan the brutality of pro football, and then, a few pages later, you present a glowing account of how Alabama's defense knocked three SEC quarterbacks out of games (Red Storm Rising). At least the pros get a fat paycheck for the risks they take.

You failed to identify the three players whose pictures appeared on your Dec. 7 cover illustrating Peter King's article about NFL injuries (The Unfortunate 500). As a Green Bay Packer fan, I know that the man lying across the bottom is Packer center James Campen, but who are the other two players?
