    I think he comes back but becomes more of a pocket passer.

  • My favorite bit, Shanny tried to tell the press it was the Irvin hit that did it. He popped up from that hit and walked back to the huddle. Shanahan is deflecting for his owner about the play where we saw Griffin writhing in pain after his footing gave way.

    Anyone notice Snyder has not been heard from yet? Think he wants to answer questions about his shit field?

    I like the guy and love watching him play

    Hopefully he changes his game to have a good long career

  • RGIII is going to be out of the league in 3 years. I can't see much way that knee doesn't get shattered and reshattered ever year.

    Was he not watching the game?

    Heh. Of course he wasn't. Otherwise he would have seen like the entire nation did, that his quarterback needed to be pulled before he got hurt.

  • Too bad, Tannohan. No high draft picks AND cap hell the next few years too. He needed to make hay this year.

    As an NFL fan, I'm pretty pissed. RG3 shouldve been treated a tad better. That staff actually sent him on a go route vs the Steelers this year.

    So, what's your cap situation this upcoming year? Usually I'd revel in the ineptitude, but, I was so excited to watch RG3. Ever since he tore up my Husky's in the Alamo Bowl. As an NFL fan, I want to him to have a long career.

    I think he comes back but becomes more of a pocket passer.


    Which is not his strong suit from what I have seen. He better work on more than WR screens and sixty-yard bombs. Washington is about to become an entirely different team if Bob has to become a pocket passer. Morris excelled this ear because of the threat of Bob running the ball. With that threat gone, or greatly diminished, then Morris is going to become pedestrian rather quickly. I should not say pedestrian, but he will not be a 1600 yards a season running-back either. I could see him as a 1000-1200 yard guy in the zone blocking scheme. That is not going to cut it with the wide receivers that they have. They might be able to buffer the pocket passing QB Bob a little by using their next two years worth of first round draft picks on WR's though...Oh wait...Does not look good.
    I am a firm believer in luck, and I found that the harder I work the more I have of it.

  • Best thing the Skins can do is invest in Oline (picks, probably not much salary cap to 'invest') to protect Cousins and make holes for Morris (great guy - kills me I have to let him go from my fantasy team this offseason...).

    And you LEAVE COUSINS IN UNTIL RGIII IS FULLY RECOVERED. Not kinda - not 'I can go coach!', but actually, fully recovered.

    If that means halfway into next season as the probably newly drafted O-linemen get some experience - fine. Let Cousins take the hits caused by a rookie RT - not Griffin with the delicate rebuilt knee.

    Cousins is good enough, and Morris is certainly good enough, that the end of the world is not near for the Skins - but RGIIIs recovery has to be handled right.

    And as far as handling things right in regards to QBs, Shanahan gets an F.

    Best thing Snyder can do is replace that craptastic field.

    Getting Orakpo and both our starting safeties should help our pass defense as well...so we won't have to put up 30 pts a game next season to win hopefully. Fred Davis back at TE should help as well.

    Saw on ESPN today where they were entertaining the question of whether or not the Redskins should entertain offers for Cousins. Wha-wha-what?

    In their defense, they said it was probably not a good idea. Ya think?

  • Good to know that Dr. Andrews was "lying to sell books" as I was told so many times last week. Whatever. His LCL was damaged against Baltimore. Andrews knew it upon examining him and removed him from the game. Shanahan lied and made up an entire series of conversations he supposedly had with Andrews on the sideline that NEVER TOOK PLACE. How that means Dr. Andrews was trying to sell books I'll never know.... but apparently the board big-brains were certain of it and repeated it over and over and gave me a full dressing down for saying anything to the contrary. Well.... I guess it's time to admit it. Shanahan was a liar, Dr. Andrews told the truth, and his book sales weren't part of the equation. He was genuinely concerned for the young man's knee and future, as he should be, since he is a doctor and all.
