Let's say the medical staff was fully aware that Harrison just plowed Colt in the head. What motivation did they have to not perform a proper concussion test?
And if they performed said test and found that he was OK, why would they cover up the fact that they gave the test?
And if they performed said test and found he was concussed, what motivation did they have to proclaim him fit to return (thus risking their very jobs)?
Was the game THAT important? Was Colt McCoy so integral to the team that they couldn't possibly win without him on the field?
There has to be a motive for these actions which the Browns are supposedly covering up. There has to be a believable alternative explanation in order for me to call them liars.
Try this. What if there was a LACK OF COMMUNICATION between the medical staff and the coaching staff?
That's not a reach. We're talking about a coach who handed the ball off to a 3rd string TE, lined up as a FB, on a crucial play and admitting in the pressor "Wuh I dunno how he got there."
The same Gomer who Walrus said in the last presser was in over his head, and was getting an OC next year.
We don't know if he knows the definition of concussion. Could he be part of the old guard who shoved players back on the field to play unless they had body parts missing? This focus on concussions is new, fairly recent.
He asked Colt if he was ready to play and Colt said YES. Maybe Colt doesn't understand the implications. Maybe he thought he was is the youth leagues again. "How's your hand?" "Fine, I'm ready to play." The staff might have benched him, and he wondered around looking for pearls in the pretty water until Gomer found him.
Who the hell knows. Somebody dropped the ball.
