Ultimately, the best thing for a athlete is to never play a contact sport like football. If you feel so strong about it, stop watching football.

At this point a concussion would be less painful than this thread.

Wow -that sounds like some good ole ES stuff rite there.
Classic - never watch football - close the thread??? lol
All im saying is I am sure there was some thought about playing/not playing him this week as well there should be.
To dismiss the fact that he suffered a concussion because he is not as fast as a race car is crazy and over the top.

I never said I feel so strongly about anything Im just making some points. Did I say I dont think he should play? No. I said it is not an idiotic thought like you guys are making it out to be.

There are plenty of studies done that show returning to soon can create problems down the road even after all of the follow up tests are done, passed, etc. I mean some of you guys are making it seem like nothing happened. The concussion that he suffered still puts him in a more vulnerable spot than someone who did not suffer one last week. It is not complete idiocy to think that sitting RG-3 for another week is at least a viable option.
I get that, but how long do you sit him out? What does sitting him out a week do? If you don't play him until the Giants game on the 21st and he gets a concussion then, would it be any better than playing him this weekend and he doesn't get one?

Re: Week 6 Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings Pregame Thread

i understand the better safe than sorry approach. with a brain injury, i get that point of view - like if we can't confirm on thursday that he will be ready to go on sunday, better sit him, give him some more time, and error on the side of caution.

but, that being said, griff is a smart man, i trust his trust in the examining doctors.

There is no rite answer to that. Its a judgement call. Again im not saying i would be for the cautious (which is not another word for stupid) and not play him but sure a week cant hurt. Yea i think the quicker the time frame between concussions absolutely definitely the worse.

edit: - he might not get one this week is obvious, but he is at more of a risk, where is in two weeks after more healing of the brain he would be closer to if not fully to where he was before this ever happened. It is not that complicated that I need to be a neurologist - brain, ankle, shoulder - whatever the body part, obviously the more time it has to heal the more back to normal and the more out of risk said body part will be vulnerable to another injury.

@DET(1-3)......W 20-13
SFO(4-1)........ W 24-13
@IND(2-2)...... L 20-23
JAC(1-4)........W 26-23 (OT)

Ours

@TAM(1-3).......W 24-22
CIN(3-2).........L 31-38

Re: Week 6 Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings Pregame Thread

I got concussed reading this thread i started about the game. Doctors have cleared me to post after this one immediately. Although the Warpath has me out 3-4 weeks.

I think some of the people here handled Deon Sanders turf toe, and Landrys ankle.

Re: Week 6 Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings Pregame Thread

I think I'm suffering from a concussion watching this thread. Just now, Matty asked me which page we were on and I couldn't tell him.

Yeah but he's at more of a risk playing in two weeks, vs three; three weeks vs four, etc.

Anyway, he was fine in practice today so he'll probably play on Sunday. I'm actually more interested in seeing if they make Rex the #2 QB this weekend. Though I suspect they'll stick with Cousins

You actually started it about the game and hoping RG-3 would play this weekend with a link to the article about his concussion. Did you think that was not going to lead to talk about his concussion?

i say roll w cousins. the more time he spends on the field, the more he can improve. the more time rex spends on the field, well, we know how that goes.

That literally made me laugh out load SS.

and sadly we all know this to be true.....
