Break it down.

Minnesota is having a great season so far, on offense they are 14th in the league in scoring(24ppg), 9th in the league in rushing and Christian Ponder and Percy Harvin are having a BIG season together. Harvin is on pace for over 100 catches. TE Kyle Rudolph leads the team in Td catches (4).

On defense Minnesota is 6th in scoring (15ppg) and as usual very good against the run (76YPGA). Viks get to the QB often and Leading Rusher Jared Allen is already on pace for another 12 plus sacks.


This will be a close hard fought game IMO, the vikings will pound the rock and use the playaction pass attack as they have all season. Percy Harvin is really their only true threat at WR but the guy is having a monster year. I worry about our offense this week because the vikings stop the run better than anyone we've seen so far. If Griff is 100% I'll give us the upset win at home but if not I just don't see us grinding it out vs a team with Adrian Peterson at RB.


Thoughts?

I think they should sit RG3 this week and bring back next week. A little too soon especially if he gets popped again. Let Cousins hold it down this week and bring back RG3 next week. Just my opinion but I want him here for a long time. Long tern gain better than short term gain. He has already had a concussion at Baylor. Effects are cumulative. Play it safe for a week is best.

Methinks he needs more seasoning in practice alone, without the game on the line. But point taken.

I have a feeling it's going to be another close one, and we will battle it out till the end. If we win..Redskins Nation will rejoice in cheers of joy. If we lose.. [B]Redskins Nation will bellow with fear and hatred among our coaching staff [/B]and players. Revolting for a total change-over.[/quote]

Why would you want him to play??? If the Skins play RGIII this week then we need to have fear and hatred in the staff. You don't put the kid in after only 1 week of a concussion. Let him sit a heal, thats why we have Cousins. I know we are desperate but playing Griff this week would be a bad decision...

Agreed. Season is pretty much over for us AFAIC.

He practiced today and seemed fine. If the doctors clear him to play then he should play.

The skins won't play Griffin unless independent neurologists say its safe for him to play. But you're saying the skins should sit griffin even if independent neurologists say he's fine. And after the doctors say hes fine, how many additional weeks should shanahan, who is not a doctor, chose to sit him? You seem to know more about concussions than neurologists, so I'm curious.

Also, I'd love to work for you, since I'm assuming you'd pay me to do nothing for weeks after a doctor tells me I can return to work. Doctors, who needs them or cares what they say about anything?

Since the season is obviously over with a 2-3 record and 11 more games to play, maybe we should just sit RGIII out the rest of the season. Heck, we might want to sit him next year too just to make sure.

We should probably just forfeit the rest of our games to make sure no one else gets hurt either.

Because we are not doctors, and if they doctor says he can play, then he can play.

Understand MD. 44ever?

LOL Season over after 5 games.... We win this week, we will most likely be playing for 1st in the NFCE next week..Yes, the season is over!!!!

If he's cleared to play by the independent doctors, then by all means he should play. Let's stop with the armchair neurologist stuff.

Im not a real armchair neurologist, but I did stay at a holiday inn express last nite.
