Leverage in Town?

Postby DarthMonk » Sat Mar 30, 2013 2:11 pm

Robert Griffin III is Mike Shanahan’s Ticket to Canton, and His Job in Washington

By Mike Wise, Published: March 29

Excerpt:

In this past week’s episode of “My Miraculous Offseason Recovery,” we entertain the question, “What’s in a text?” Really, what do the tea leaves mean when Robert Griffin III texts ESPN host Trey Wingo, “My first NFL season and my injury that ended it showed me a lot about the league, my team and myself. i know where my responsibility is within the dilemma that led to me having surgery to repair my knee and all parties involved know their responsibilities as well.”

Let’s read that last part again: “all parties involved know their responsibilities as well.”

What’s in a text? Everything, including job security for Mike Shanahan.


The gist is the last line of the article:

Shanahan now needs Griffin more than Snyder needs Shanahan.

I don't believe this is true as long as we have Cousins. By 2014 I believe the Redskins will have a team that can win with either QB.

The article or skins#1 comment?
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.'"

BTW - I post these things so people can read them and form their own opinions.

We could use a "Stir the Pot" emoticon.

OK. I mentioned in another thread how insane the reaction and crappola being read into this text from Wilbon/Kornheiser and Shefter. I was shocked at Shefter

I chalk this up to a few things: 1. the time of year, there is simply a much higher rate of insanity in the NFL world during the off-season; 2. its the Redskins, and everyone wants to take a shot; 3. in a few years, like 2 years, this will seem like a distant memory.
