RG3 not built for the NFL

223 posts in this topic

It's funny how people slammed Jay Cutler when he took himself out but they say RG3 should have taken himself out. You really can't blame a coach for an injury. Maybe you should blame it on RG3's frail ass since he's always the one trying to take off running after he claimed that he's not a running QB.

Robert Griffin III is bigger than Drew Brees, and several other current NFL qbacks. He just has to learn to slide and or get rid of the ball faster.

Really?

@mortreport reports Robert Griffin III will undergo total reconstruction surgery of his right knee early Wednesday morning.

@AdamSchefter

Griffin's recovery is projected at 6-to-8 months w/ rehabilitation that will focus on his quad strength to protect and help stabilize knee.

So the ACL has been torn for a while if surgery is on Wednesday. Standard procedure is usually 2-4 weeks after the injury an the swelling has subsided. Otherwise the reconstructed ligament will not fit.

How is that the ACL used to be at minimum a year to come back from? Even still guys seemed to overcompensate with the other leg. Then what Adrian Peterson did was a freak of nature, and now Bob3 is having his second surgery to the same ACL, and needing an LCL repair to boot, and they're talking six months? Is it just advances in medicine or is James Andrews just that good or what? I swear guys missed the next season if they tore an ACL late in the year, and now it's nothing. I'm skeptical about this timetable.

Side Rant: If Bob3 tears it a 3rd time (god forbid) and comes back, and makes the fact that TD did it just a footnote in NFL history, I will forever root for him to be injured again and not feel guilty at all about it.

It still takes over 6-8 months for just acl, lcl should add 3-4 months on top of that. Time table should have been around 9-12 months. Just lowered to give fans hope, or in case his recovery is faster than normal.

The lcl by itself takes 8-12 months, add the acl and the injury is harder to recover from. I'd be surprised if he's back before late Oct
