RG3 'mild' concussion - now what?

Postby SkinsJock » Sun Oct 07, 2012 4:00 pm

this just in- Mike S has just announced the news = "mild concussion"

ANY concussion is VERY serious


this franchise needs this kid - they have to be very careful with ensuring that he can play QB here for a long time

The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

Yeah hopefully he will pass the concussion test and will be fine however he couldn't remember what quarter it was or the score when the training staff looked at him after the hit.

It was going to happen... he needs to have a better understanding of when to surrender... he was going nowhere, and should have stepped out before the point of contact.

Or thrown the ball away. Just a flick of the wrist, in that situation.

This has been RG3's slowest area of development.

Yep he has to learn what hits to take, when to run out of bounds, he can't try and be Superman and sometimes like you say ya have to surrender

Also Aldrick did actually get knocked out by Merriweather last week and he was back today so hopefully it's as mild as mild can be

Not good. Griffin had a concussion late in the season at Baylor so that's 2 concussions in less than a year.

Never good to see a concussion but maybe if 52 other players cared that much these bums wouldn't be 2-3.

In other words, know when to be daring.

Hope he's OK.

Not sure how you can call it "mild" when he doesn't know the score or what quarter it is.
