THE QUESTION

Brian Westbrook, Is it worth it?

With two concussions already this season, should the Eagles running back be considering retirement instead of this Sunday's game?

FROM THE PANEL

Take it slow, Brian

Let's hope for his sake, his future doesn't pay for his present.

He will play

If every test shows he's putting himself at no greater risk, he ought to be allowed to write his own ending.

Be deliberate, Brian

Part of properly communicating a decision is about communicating the process that brought you to that decision.

Brian's choice

It's his career and his future, whatever he wants to make of it.

He's cleared, let him play

If the best neurologists in the world say he can play again, then I'm fine with him being out there.

His choice, but...

He has clearance and knows the risks than ultimately it's his choice... let's hope you makes the right one.

Brian, STOP!

Fame is fleeting, brain injuries are forever. I implore you, keep out of the game.

Know when to walk away, know when to run

I think the wise professional and medical recommendation would be for Brian Westbrook to call it quits this season.

A train wreck

Hopefully, Brian will decide when enough is enough, before he meets that ultimate wreck
