I am not exactly sure what was actually done by Dr Andrews ...

I do understand that RG3's right knee is NOT going to be 'better' than it was before last season ...
we all saw the devastating image and we all felt initially that there was a very good chance our future great QB might not be able to play QB like he had given us a taste for last season ...


I am VERY grateful that medical science has come far enough that there is a very good chance that RG3 will be able to play at a level that will ensure he is the best QB that ever played in B&G

I don't exactly know how all that came to be so quickly, after what we saw in his last game, but I do believe that RG3 WILL BE AS GOOD (or better) than he was
THAT IS REALLY, ALL I CARE ABOUT

we may or may not win every game BECAUSE of RG3 being able to play QB but ... we will have a team that has a lot better chance of success AS A TEAM ...

Don't be surprised if they keep him out MAYBE the 1st or 2nd game and try out cousins being conservative. Trust me, you heard it from me 1st.

IF you really think that Mike will not play RG3 IF he's ready to play - you're NOT trustworthy ...

IF you think that Mike is not going to play RG3 in the first or second game because RG3 is not going to be 'ready' to play - you're NOT trustworthy
because you must be basing that on feeling that RG3 is not going to be ready to play AND that's just BS :lol:

other than that I have no issues with you at all - from what little I know about you, that is :lol:

We all know that we are VERY fortunate to have RG3 and that he will be VERY carefully monitored

I doubt we'll see much from him in pre season games, but ... unless the reports are inaccurate - I don't see Mike not having him play

The reports are that Mike says he will not play.

Why is this up for debate? RGIII said on Wednesday that he won't be playing. Mike confirmed it. He's not playing.

:lol: gotta love it - if anyone is paying attention, EA7649 posted that there is a possibility, even a maybe, that RG3 might not start or play in the 1st games of the season - i.e. the Eagles and Packers

please enlighten us where Mike has said that RG3 "won't be playing" in those games

EVERYONE understands that the pre season games are not going to see much, IF ANY, play from RG3

I just do not see any reports that indicate that RG3 might not be 'ready to play' in the very near future and certainly he has indicated that he thinks he'll be starting the Monday Night game
I understand bringing him back slowly - this kid has shown he's very motivated to get himself in as good a shape as he can and I just cannot fathom Mike holding him back

There is another concern when wearing a brace. Bracing one joint increases impulses (stress) to other joints when jumping and cutting.

Think of your legs as complex shock absorbers. When you jump or cut, your ankle, knee and hip joints all play a role in absorbing the shock. Braces, while stabilizing the joint, also decrease that joint's range of motion, essentially taking out one of your shock absorbers. This places more stress on the other joints.

Also, on a hit, if a brace were to prevent the knee from giving then something else would have to give. This can happen without a brace too as evidenced by Joe T. His knee was so tight both his tibia and fibula snapped.

There are pluses ans minuses to the brace and we all should know Griff will not wear one if he has his druthers.

BTW - I'm not trying to start an argument. I'm merely pointing out what I consider interesting medical facts.

RG3 is wearing a brace and I'm fairly sure he will wear it for a while ...

HOWEVER

I'll predict that RG3 is NOT going to be wearing a brace in the Monday night game
RG3's not playing in that game if the knee is not OK - IF he's 'ready to play', he's not wearing the brace :D

I want RG3 to play QB - there is ABSOLUTELY, NO REASON to not start him in the first game

it's maybe difficult for some to think that there is no way he could be ready after what we all saw and from what we all think we know about athletes recovering from that type of injury
that is all based on 'old thinking' ... medical science and the medical profession have made some unbelievable advances PLUS some of these athletes like RG3 are just incredible ...

RG3 is going to be an even better QB than he was last season based on his desire to be the best he can be AND Mike and Kyle taking even more advantage of his skill set


there is no way that Mike will not play RG3 in the Eagles game .... unless that right knee is not ready to go and there is ZERO indication of that
