Personally I felt him sitting in the pocket getting hit was more dangerous because he's a statue back there looking down field. If he runs I feel he has the opportunity to lesson the hit by only allowing the defender to get part of him or because he gets hit the same direction as he's running which although looks bad prbably is not as bad as it looks cause it's either not a clean solid hit or there is less impact.

ie; a car colliding with another car head on is extremely bad. A car getting T-boned is bad. A car sitting not moving getting hit by another car/truck is bad. But a car already moving forward getting hit from behind causes less damage because the energy is transfered to the car struck.

bad example I guess. but I worry about RG3's head bouncing off the turf more so then him getting hit. Standing in the pocket looking down field worries me just as much because of the force of the impact. I think if RG3 is moving the energy of the impact from player to player is less, unless he runs head on into a defender.

Can't believe I forgot about the OTL special on RG3 today. Will have to catch the podcast later. Curious what was said

I think in that moment he was just really deflated and felt like the season was slipping away. Maybe his comments ruffled some feathers but more than anything I think what really helped was having the bye week.

After the first Giants game I think that loss took the wind out of our sails for a few games there and you could tell with the way we played against Pitt and Carolina. We got our mojo back after the bye.

On a side note I love how RGIII does his post game interview in Pads. Doing this just screams that he doesn't follow the Norm.

I think thats what you get when your expected to win and you lose. I can tell you I expected the team to win that game. In any event after a loss if he was as mad as I was and had to do interviews I can understand why he said what he said. He was pissed, let down, and prbably was not up for an interview. Emotions went crazy and he spoke out loud.

for what? I'd have expected the Giants player who stomped on the Redskins player to have been suspended 4 games. He should have been ejected during the game. I know he did it cause our player kicked out at him for pulling him and it was around groin level but the Giant player had no right to pull our player like he was.

That always the case, or just yesterday?

He's done that 2-3 times this year. So, it isn't common but he has done it much more than other players.

It's a nice courtesy to the reporters, particularly on a Monday night game

On one of the postgame wrap up shows last night, one of the talking heads(can't remember who) said that just makes the media like him even more, because he doesn't make them wait around for 20 minutes while he showers and changes.

I hope that is the case. Hopefully, someone can fill his spot well for the next 4.
