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.

early word is he tore his ACL and PCL... feel bad for RG... if this happened to cam I'd be beyond crushed. For the good of the sport I pray he's 100% again

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

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.

Of course he tore it, a sprain is a partial tear of some level and his knee buckled a few times in that game. Each time it buckled it did more damage to his knee. He should have been taken out of the game after the first one on the second TD drive.

If it's as bad as I think it is ( I think he tore the hell out of his knee) If it's his PCL and ACL, then he isn't playing next season and will probably miss some of the 2014 training camp.

    • Great. That's like putting this guy in charge
    • As far as the OP's question, any OT, Allen (wasn't impressed with him in the playoffs), Lattimore, Charlton and a QB. I'd be happy with Adams, Hooker, Fournette and Howard. I'd love Fournette or Howard.
    • Again, your generalizing people.  While there are plenty of examples of trashy people (lord knows my mother's side of the family is basically a garbage dump of humanity), you can't paint the entire community in that scope.  Like many of the bootstrappers, you say "if I can do it, anyone can."  That's not true. I have a ton of stories of kids with potential, drive, brains, determination who are simply lost due to their demographics and experience.  I know a kid who was from an absolutely horrible situation.  His parents were jailed, raised by his aunt and uncle as a 2nd class citizen when compared to his cousin.  I mean, they provided, but they failed in the love department.  Not quite Harry Potter situation.   He was brilliant, earned a full ride to NCSU, but failed out in the first semester because while he could navigate a crappy neighborhood and poorly supported high school; he was unable to cope with the rich, white world of the majority of NCSU kids.  Culture shock.  Thankfully, he found the military, got his life straightened out, and is stationed in Hawaii and keeps posting these beautiful images of the islands. While it's fairly easy for white people of all income levels to navigate the great world of white culture, minorities and especially minorities from poverty have an extremely difficult time "fitting in" to the greater, whiter world.  It has nothing to do with their work ethic, their intelligence, but simply stepping into a world that is so different from where they are from. Hence why there's a significant amount of internet tension between bootstrappers and those who think it's fine to help those who need some help. What I'm seeing based on his news posts is a general level of ignorance of the people around him.  I mean, I get it, there are many examples on the huddle and in the world of people who overcame adversity, but they are the exception, not the norm.  That dirty word "white privilege," or more accurately "middle class privilege," blinds people to the realities of those outside of their small circles. Now before the angry, poor-to-rich bootstrappers get huffled about being called middle class, how hard was it for you to walk into a bank, talk to people, be taken seriously, and do business?  Despite their relative levels of poverty, they still have an advantage of knowing how to function in the greater, whiter world.
