I'm pulling for him... I've been a RG3 fan since his sophomore year at Baylor... Well, minus the week we played them last year, but other than that, I'm pulling for him.

Dr. Andrews compares him to Adrian Peterson and Bo Jackson, lol. Good to hear.


Robert Griffin III's recovery from knee surgery has been "unbelievable," Dr. James Andrews told ESPN's Stephania Bell on Friday.
"I've been real mum on talking too much about RG III. He wants his recovery to be fairly private, but I can tell you he's way ahead of schedule. His recovery has been unbelievable so far," Andrews told ESPN.
"RG III is one those superhumans. First patient I ever had like that was Bo Jackson. And recently I, of course, had Adrian Peterson, who is also superhuman. They have an unbelievable ability to recover, where as a normal human being may not be able to recover."
Andrews, who performed surgery to repair two of Griffin's knee ligaments on Jan. 9, was speaking to ESPN for an upcoming feature story on South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore, who is rehabbing with Griffin to prepare for the NFL draft after also having knee surgery.
Griffin suffered a sprained LCL in Washington's Week 14 win against the Baltimore Ravens, but returned two games later. He then tore his LCL and ACL in a first-round playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
At the NFL's owners meetings last week, coach Mike Shanahan wouldn't put a timetable on Griffin's recovery.
"For me to tell you anything at this time is kind of ludicrous," Shanahan said Thursday. "All I can tell you, though, is when you've got a guy who's got the flexibility that he has, he's got the strength, he's got the desire to be the best at what he does, usually good things happen.
"He's in there every day. He's working out six, eight hours a day. He's got great strength and great flexibility, and that gives him a chance to hopefully be ready for the season, right? I don't know."
Griffin won The Associated Press 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award after setting the NFL record for best passer rating by a rookie quarterback and leading Washington to its first NFC East title in 13 years.

Everyone is always ahead of schedule. Then they get back and get hurt again. AP was the exception. Thomas Davis is the cautionary tale.

Basally this. A set back can happen at anytime, so while it is good news, one should always proceed with caution with this type of injury.

Maybe they should poorly manage him like they did by leaving him in the game too long allowing him to get hurt worse

If he makes it back and is healthy to start the season, the guy is a robot. Amazing recovery if he doesn't have any set backs. A 16-18 month recovery cut down to 8 months is amazing.

salesmanship 101. make your original prediction pessimistic, then you look good even if the actual recovery is just average.

Just means that he's way ahead of schedule for getting his next injury. Dude will never play a full season.

if they want to push him, fine by me. cuts down on the competition.

just remember that they said he was fine when he went back out on the field in that last game when it was obvious he wasn't.

these guys (shanny and rg3) aren't really the most honest in looking at the situation. they are going to push him to return quicker than he should just like they did last year. and dr. andrews didn't appear to help the situation either.
