'69 New York Jets Continue Their Winning Ways
Date:10/5/2007

Journal of Sports Medicine. (Three of the original team members had died by the time the data was collected in 2004, Nicholas said.)

"Players wouldn't go back into the game; they wouldn't go back next week with concussions."

The researchers also found no evidence of any increased risk of depression among the Jets veterans, and 94 percent of the retirees said they had had either "very f
