The numbers WR and QBS are putting up are only because defenders are trying to not hit them in certain situations. But the injuries IMO won't change. Often injuries don't even happen on the hit that looks the meanest. Sometimes the clean vicious hit is better then the awkward falling down someone else falls into you cluster**** tackle.
Now this is the most relevant post in the thread.
Most injuries happen when one or more of the players have given up on the play.. Or at least that is what they used to say.
