RG3peat? I thought I coined that term, but I guess you beat me to it.

The fact is the original injury was FAR WORSE than a grade 1 sprain. Let's be honest, it's been a month and the knee never got better, in fact I am suggesting it got worse. My friend who is a knee specialist for Carolina Imaging said if it's a partial tear it shouldn't require surgery. However I think that he injured it in on the second series and really tore it up in the 4th quarter. I think this is the 12 - 14 month recoup type of injury and I don't think we see RG3 at all next year. Daniel Snyder isn't going down with him just because. I think his knee is shredded and Shanahan rolled the dice and hit snake eyes on this one......This maybe even career threatening.........SMDH!!!

You're entitled to your opinion - I just cannot believe that is the case

I want to hear this from Dr Andrews and the Redskins

I saw Adrian Peterson - he was NOT able to walk - RG3 was walking

ENOUGH SPECULATING
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in the near future, the problems here are complex - we'll win some games but it will take years to be good again

Great post! I agree 100%. The speculation train is running rampant.

We will know soon enough what the diagnoses, but even then we will not know how he responds to surgery or rehab.

The Skins' training staff isn't particularly good at their jobs. I hope the Danny his the best physical trainers money can buy, because right now he doesn't have them.

Answer to the OP's question:


Mike Shanahan, obviously.

Can we please, please stop speculating both without any shred of proof and without waiting at least 5 minutes for stories to be confirmed, denied or clarified?

Thanks

I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I just want to add this ...

Dr Andrews has clarified what happened and I'm OK with the way it went down in the Ravens game ... RG3 avoided everyone and when Mike looked at Dr Andrews he basically pointed to RG3 on the field and indicated he must be OK ...

We also now hear that the MRI on Monday has shown some partial tears but they are not sure when these happened

RG3 went to FL to let Dr Andrews make the determination

this is not good news in one sense but it is NOT bad news either

DR Andrews is one of the best at this sort of thing and hopefully this will all be clarified soon

I doubt that things are as bad as so many seem to be thinking - and almost hoping :roll:
