    You shouldnt have to have a serious wreck to convince you to wear a helmet. Especially if you're a starting NFL QB.

    This from our F2FA Steeler affiliate message board:

    "The Pittsburgh local news is all over this....pictues of the motorcycle, the car etc. It doesn't look good. He lost teeth, back of his head is all bloody. He apparently hit the car windshield head first, rolled over the windshield, and then hit the pavement again with his head. He is awake but woozy so thats a good sign. Possibly a broken jaw."

    I'm just glad to hear that it's not too serious... so I don't have to feel guilty for laughing at the twit.

    He's hardly fine. Most of the reports have him suffering a broken jaw.

    Too bad they don't make helmets you can wear while driving those things.

    edit: Just reading my posts. Wow! I'm being a jerk (more so than usual even). The guy's hurt and I should probably lay off. I just have a hard time even empathizing with this, let alone sympathizing. To me it's like Darwin's Natural Selection; if you're stupid enough to drive a motorcycle without a helmet, let alone a professional athlete on a bike without a lid, then well let's face it we're not talking about a genius here (wonderlick not required). Eventually he probably would have ended up stabbing himself while running with scissors, or perhaps drowning after going swimming immediately following a big meal.:)

    Common sense seems to be growing less and less common.
