RG3 not built for the NFL

220 posts in this topic

Hate to hear it, but early word is that RG3 tore his ACL, MCL and PCL. Next season in jeopardy.

If this ends up being true, Shanahan should be fired.

Stupid, self-serving asshole.

False.

Luck drives because he is the smartest.

Griffin sits shotgun because he is the most popular and pampered.

Wilson sits in the backseat because he's always forgotten about an he's short.

And Cam eats all the pizza because he is selfish.

Even more false...

The media painting of all four QBs.

One thing that ought to be clearly separated here...

Criticism of Griffin's physical durability is not equal to criticizing his skills as a player.

Dan Morgan was a phenomenal player. You could argue his skill set and his passion for football might have led him to the Hall of Fame if he's just been able to stay healthy. Unfortunately, he couldn't.

Griffin has shown that he has the skill to be a very good NFL quarterback. I just don't think his body will hold up long enough for him to have that chance.

(and obviously, I'm not alone in that thought)

Exactly.

& hopefully the early reports on his knee are wrong.

Go listen to his postgame presser. He wanted to be out there regardless of his knee. He said that he didn't believe he was hurting the team and he believed he gave them the best chance to win. He only left the field when he couldn't play anymore. He was staying on that field until he was dragged off in a bodybag. It's the mentality of a athlete. I'm sure it's easy for fat middle aged guys sitting behind a keyboard to say he should have been out but rg3 saw it differently and accountability is on him.

God, I can't help thinking that if Cam had said and done what RG said and did, how much the words "selfish, immature," and the phrase " me first" would have been thrown around today, especially since the team lost. Such is the life and created image of these players.

I want to emphasize that what I posted earlier was from unsubstantiated and unconfrimed Twitter reports. However, the news likely won't be good. Shanahan said in his presser they still weren't sure of the extent of the injury, which to me is trash. They know it's bad and they're sending RG3 to see Dr. Andrews again for a second opinion. Shanahan also referenced AP's injury and RG3's previous ACL tear.

Just bad all around.

Stupid, self-serving asshole.

Remember when he sent Terrell Davis out as a decoy when TD was suffering from migraines and could barely see? Vintage Shanny baby, vintage Shanny.

Fug Redskin fans though, fug'em to hell.

Just heard on WFNZ that they are hearing that he tore his ACL and PCL and is looking to be out for the next 14-18 months. Which pretty much means he is out for the entire next year. Redskins fans in denial.
