Which is false due to the fact that McCarthy hits people for a living. You're not taking all the variables into account when determining your decision. McCarthy is, when compared to other MLBs, relatively injury prone. Most people on this board don't need stats or math to see it because they just feel it. That means that his hitting/tackling people to suffering an injury is high because his position demands that he sustain hits. Locker is a QB. A position that shouldn't get hit and when does receive a good smack there is a high possibility that he is injured (hence the rule changes). So if both are missing equal amounts of time for hits, then the player who is playing the position that is suppose to take hits would look weaker by comparison. McCarthy.
