It is being called the strangest medical anomaly since , as former Eagles running back Brian Westbrook --in his first game as a 49er against the Eagles-- suffered what doctors are calling a "spontaneous concussion".
Brian Westbrook suffered concussions while...
Moving his lawn;
using his cell phone;
trying to solve the Pythagorean Equation;
straining a stool.
"It may be some neurological form of 'muscle memory'," said Eagles team physician, who treated each of the 212 concussions Westbrook suffered during the Eagles' 2009 campaign. "He saw some old teammates, perhaps, or the familiar Midnight Green, Black, Charcoal, Silver and White of the Eagles' uniforms, and his brain ran itself into the inside of his noggin."
"I am not sure what the hell happened, " said the 31-year-old Westbrook, who was released in March of this year by coach Andy Reid, using the same f--ked up logic that convinced him to trade the best quarterback in franchise history, Donovan McNabb, to an NFC East competitor. "I saw some of the old guys, my teammates, and the next thing I knew, I don't remember who the president is, or where I parked my car."
