Questions surface after Robert
Griffin III badly re-injures knee

KSAT-TV [San Antonio, TX], by The Sports Xchange

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/7/2013 11:23:29 AM

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III limped around for much of Sunday´s playoff game against Seattle, and was finally forced out of the game when his knee gave out fielding a low shotgun snap in the fourth quarter. The injury already brought up questions and comments by FOX announcer Troy Aikman, who cited controversial remarks by well-known orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who told USA Today that he did not clear Robert Griffin III to return to the Redskins´ Dec. 9 game against the Baltimore Ravens after he sprained his right knee. "I´m the one that

Comments:
You have to question the wisdom of letting him play when he clearly wasn´t up to it and possibly ending his career.

Shanahan is a disgrace. I don´t care what RGIII tells you, you are the coach and should be an adult. RGIII was in NO condition to play. Even if he started, it was obvious in the second quarter he was faltering physically.

This oustanding young man´s career may have ended before it ever really began. So sad for him and the Redskins franchise.

Everyone´s got an opinion. All Shanahan had was RG´s word that he could do what he needed to to. Turns out ´stuff happens´. The only one to blame was RG III, but since he is the victim all of a sudden we can´t have that. I just pray that this isn´t a huge, serious injury. He has injured his knee before and it looks like this could be a problem. This is the sports media with too much time on their hands creating controversy. Too bad they don´t cover Obama and his faults. He´s killing us, but it´s no big deal to the media.

A player is always going to say he is fine to go back in. Why have the best sports orthopedist in the country on the sidelines and then not use him to examine an injured player on 12/9? Because this coach would ruin a quarterback´s career for the sake of winning, both on 12/9 and yesterday.

Why blame the media for reporting this? Anyone with eyes watching the game could see what was going on and how badly injured this player was. Shanahan should be fired today and Dr. Andrews should sue him for slander. Shanahan lied about Dr. Andrews to cover up his own greed.

RGIII, a wonderful man, football player, and fellow Baylor Bear, should never have started yesterday. If I´m Daniel Snyder, I´m furious with Shannahan and my team doctor for putting Griffin out there... they should both be fired for gross incompetence. That said, "Go Hawks!"

Just imagine if Griffin had ruled himself out of the game and Washington (of course) had lost. Then every critic would be writing that Griffin only looks out for himself, that Griffin isn´t a true team player, that Griffin is scared of taking a hit for the team.

Here is why there has to be a serious adult in charge of these decisions: a true, dedicated team player like RGIII will *always* say that he is ready to go and wants to be in, because that´s his nature. Someone like him can´t do anything different.

Why does a coach need to override him? Because listening to him in this instance just may have destroyed the long term future of the entire Washington Redskins franchise. Yes, RGIII is that important to this team. And Shanahan may have just thrown that away for nothing.

RGIII could start the game and everyone´s happy. Once it´s clear he´s vulnerable, he needs to sit out. Some might grumble, but at least there´s no catastrophe.

I hope and pray he´ll be able to come back. If not then I pray he has a good future doing something else. He seems like a decent person and the NFL is short on those.

RGIII is a very smart man.

But he has to face the realities of the NFL. He has to start trusting his running backs and receivers. It´s one thing to run when a QB is flushed out of the pocket and has no choice. But no pro QB should run on designed plays or just because he thinks he can get them a few yards. And when he does run, he has to learn to slide early and often.

Those defensive players in the NFL are huge, mean and will hurt a QB like no other player on the field. It is a ´´badge of honor´´ to them to knock a QB out of the game. These aren´t college players any more. These are large strong grown men who make a lot of money to hurt offensive players -- especially QB´s.

If RGIII wants to be around for a few years, he has to accept that this isn´t college any more, he isn´t Superman, and he can´t do it all.

As a Philadelphia and New York resident for the past 32 years I´m hardly a Redskins fan but I enjoy watching Griffin play. Watching him yesterday it was so clear that he was in pain, and even clearer that he wasn´t effective because Seattle knew he couldn´t run and was in pain, that they should have taken him out on that basis. Watching someone that talented fall over from a knee that looked shaky before that - I´m not the coach or the owner but it just seemed extremely unintelligent solely from a performance perspective - without even getting to the risk to Griffin.

I missed the game, but this probably should have been a call for the doctors to make, not a 22 y/o kid. Hopefully his knee is alright. Obviously in hindsight you don´t let a kid throw himself to the wolves on your watch. But then again, you don´t become a multimillionaire NFL coach without taking big risks and going with your gut. My hat is off to RGIII for showing a heap of toughness. With the skill of orthopedic surgeons these days a knee injury is not much of a career threat. Look what Adrian Pederson accomplished this year coming off major knee surgery. I´m sure RGIII will be fine. Those quick to condemn Shanahan obviously don´t remember what things were like for Skins fans before he came to town. He went with his gut. His gut was wrong. I give him a pass.

#15 nailed it. This isn´t about RGIII, really. It´s about a coach who sees his team going down the drain because his QB obviously can´t get it done in his existing condition. It was obvious that the Redskins were never going to score again unless RG was replaced.

I´m reminded of a championship game in the early 1960s, where NY Giants QB Y.A. Tittle went up against the Baltimore Colts, and was all taped up - could hardly walk - yet the coach played him.
You have to understand the competitive nature of football players. Most will not willingly give up their position...

Exactly, #18. Which is the reason there is a head coach who is supposed to be looking out for the future of the team, the investment the team has in each player, and for the best interest of the player´s health. The coach is the one who is supposed to make a decision a competitive player would never make on his own.

Didn´t know which team to root for. Learned both QB´s are Christian men. They kept replaying the shot where his knee buckled; I had to close my eyes after the 4th one. Pray that he recovers.

A wealthy west metro couple who had gone on the lam after being charged with welfare fraud in Minnesota was arrested Tuesday in Florida after being tracked down in the Bahamas.

Talk about biting the bullet! Or, getting the biggest bang for your buck. During a December 2013 operation in Afghanistan, a British sniper killed six Taliban fighters with a single bullet. British and Afghan forces were attacked by 15-20 Taliban fighters during a mission in southern Afghanistan. One of the men was wearing an explosive vest. The unnamed, 20-year-old sharpshooter took a single shot from 930 yards which struck the trigger of the vest and exploded, killing an additional five terrorists.

President Obama on Tuesday hailed the enrollment of more than 7 million people in insurance under his signature health law as “a big step forward” that will give Americans peace of mind and change the landscape of health care for years to come. He also rebuked his Republican foes of his law for standing in the way and spreading fear about this overhaul, quipping that “Armageddon has not arrived” and that they are holding back the United States from joining other advanced countries around the world in providing health coverage. “The debate over repealing this law is over.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
