Default B-Dawk's neck (not good)

As much as I love the guy and what he means to this team, I want him to hang it up if there's potential for further damage.

Concerns mount in Denver about Brian Dawkins’ neck
Posted by Michael David Smith on December 25, 2011, 11:49 AM EST
Denver Broncos v Philadelphia Eagles Getty Images

Broncos safety Brian Dawkins re-injured his neck on Sunday against the Bills, and there are concerns in Denver that he may have played his last game in the NFL.

Dawkins himself told people after the game not to be worried, but Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that others in Denver are worried that he won’t ever be able to get back on the field. His neck has become a recurring problem, causing him to miss all or parts of four different games this year.

In the short term, losing Dawkins would really hurt the Broncos’ defense as they attempt to beat the Chiefs next week and win the AFC West. The safety position is especially concerning because the Broncos’ other starting safety, Quinton Carter, suffered a back injury against the Bills, although he is expected to be back on the field against the Chiefs.

But the bigger concern is Dawkins’ long-term health. The 38-year-old Dawkins has been through so many collisions in his 16-year NFL career that it’s not surprising that he’s now experiencing neck problems. But it is alarming. And it might be the end of the line for a great player.

I know Dawkins wants to win a championship, but at some point you have to think of your longterm health. It's probably better for him and his family for him to retire.

I wonder what's wrong with Rahim Moore's head. He has to be the worst Broncos safety since Eric Brown.

It's definitely not worth any risk to Dawk's future health for him to play. Even though he appears to be the heart and soul of the D. I want him to be able to walk away, not be wheeled away.

I don't know about that.... Towards the end of Shanahan's tenure, the Broncos had some of the worst safeties I can remember.

-Marlon McCree........
-Vernon Fox
-Marquand Manuel


Take your pick, but Denver has had trash at safety for a number of years now.

Dawkins has been a warrior for us and gave this team alot more than I thought he had left in the tank. Time for him to look after his long term health and not jeapordize anything though.

I think Rahim Moore deserves another season. If he still shows no improvement, then cut him.

I liked what I saw from his during the preseason a lot. He has shown flashes, and obviously cares about the team.

What was the name of the safety that Fisher supposedly recommended from the Titans? That guy took the worst angles I've ever seen. I questioned if he could see properly. He's my pick for the worst till now.

Rahim at times looks like a rookie. Carter at times looks like a rookie...

I wonder why that is...

After seeing Dawkins come back from what looked like a serious knee injury earlier in the year,(I forget which game it was, but his knee totally hyperextended, yet he came back and played in that game) anything is possible with him, but a neck injury at his age is not something to take lightly. Bring back as a coach in the secondary, especially for Moore and Carter.

CHamp after a MNF game in NE called this dude the worst saftey he ever played with. Just this year called out the two rookies as being unprofessional

Moore looks just plain terrible. Can't believe our scouts rated him a 2nd round pick. No wonder they benched his ass. Normally rooks flash something at some point. This guys is flat out clueless. I know every team deals with injuries but our safety play san Dawk is a weak spot that cannot be covered up

Dawks is 38, he's had a great career and a truly warrior. I also rather see him retire.
A neck injury is too risky and we all know the guy plays all out with reckless abandon

I honestly think that he's playing with a huge chip on his shoulder after being labeled as a "center fielder" non-contact type of kid during all the draft hype. That's what it looks like to me, he's playing very physical - sometimes making dumb plays to show he's physical. He's had a few kill/near kill shots this year, playing completely opposite of what I was led to believe by the draft "experts" during the draft.

Kyle mccarthy had a good preseason. He has been well past preseason and needs to start showing an improvement. UCLA guy, what do you expect?
