    I've never understood the stupidity of playing someone who is clearly injured and will be *much* worse off if anything goes wrong like it just did.

    I really don't want the Seachickens to win this.

    ESPN was running a scroll this morning showing Shanahan's win/loss record with and without Elway at QB. He was 7-1 with John Boy and is 1-7 without him. :wink:

    Ask Jay Cutler what happens when you leave a playoff game under your own power. People in Chicago are still questioning his toughness three years later.

    The Catch-22.

    When he started limping after that OOB play, they should have pulled him then.

    IMO watching the game RG3 was mostly inaffective because of the injury/field and shoulda been pulled by halftime atleast, so if they won they'd have him for indoors this coming week.

    I just get that feeling watching shanahan he's like that high school coach in the movies with the get out there and play hurt no matter what costs. RG3 alot of his game depends on moving around kinda like vick, so what happens when all these hits and injuries add up and slow him down, will he be useless then?

    Ask John Elway, one of the earlier running QB's. He'll tell you about his two post-football knee replacement operations. Those guys will be old before their time. The NFL adjusts quickly and only the smart survive which tells me that Seattle's QB, who knows how to get out of bounds fast, may be the lone exception to the Vick and RGIII fate.

    Yep look at Cam Newton, last year was almost untouchable and this year does squawt, i like Wilson alot because he uses his head and knows when to shut it down. The new rage is the super mobile QB which is fine but as they get older and injured more they have to become a more accurate thrower and not rely on their legs.

    When I was a twenty-something doing my undergrad at GWU I was a volunteer docent at one of the better known science museums. The woman I reported to was about ten years old than me...and HOT! Recently divorced, she had season tix to all the Skins games, and because she didn't want to go alone she often invited me. Whenever the Skins won I got well and truly laid.

    I've been a rabid fan ever since! :lol3

    On one of the broodcasts they said that only 12% of teams which start 0-2 make the playoffs. The NFC East is weak, so you have to think that the Redskins at least have a chance to be one of the 12%. But boy, they sure don't look good.

    Rodney Harrison hit on it I think. RGIII does not look comfortable yet. He is still not trusting the knee and it is throwing his throwing off. Said it took him a year of being back on the field to get back to 100%. Too soon to panic. Good coach, good talent, they will be in the hunt.
