On an unrelated note, wtf was up with the field? The it looked tore up before the game even started and looked like that slowed all runners a bit. Hopefully will be good to go by Sunday.
Agree with this observation. How can the Redskins be one of the most valuable franchises in the NFL and have "CRAP" for grass and a field. Come on Snyder, buy some terf and fix this stuff before Sunday! Geez! I know our team was going "Old School" with all the runs last Sunday night, but can our field not be so old school?

Did you see that hit he took in the Dallas game last week where he stayed down for a few seconds? He wasn't hurt but extremely nervous about getting up on his feet not sure what to expect. Once he got up he was fine and ran with a little more confidence the rest of the game. It's a mental thing more than anything at this point.
It looked to me like he stayed down because he fell right on the ball and got the wind knocked out of him a bit.

I thought he stayed down so he could hear the collective gasp, and following silence as 80000+ people held their breath till he stood up.

PFfft. JJ didn't even have all his seats in. Skins won't get a SB till weather is disregarded. The field isn't the issue.

Its better to look like shit then for them to add turf that does not have a root base and tears up in sections. FedEx has always been that way because they want to avoid the problems with a newly soded field.

Ok, well then can Synder hire someone from Augusta National to teach them how to grow grass?! How is it that other teams in cold weather locations have grass in December but the Skins don't?

Re: RG3 cleared to play (update)

You guys need to notice the field in Green Bay this weekend. I guarantee it will look better than Fed-X field and its freezing up there.

Re: RG3 cleared to play (update)

The injury might be a blessing in disguise, read what Griffin explain about what he learned from the injury.

Quote:
But Griffin said he thinks the injury has helped his game.

“It did show me things I can do to make the game easier for myself and easier on my body,” he said. “Ironically I’ve done a better job protecting myself since the injury, sliding to get down and getting all the yards I can. Sometimes things have to happen for you to really grasp that and it’s shown me a lot.

Re: RG3 cleared to play (update)

I'll say this, Snyder should be staying out of the football part of the redskins...but if there is anything someone above might need to step in on it's the health of RG3. They have to be smarter than that.

Re: RG3 cleared to play (update)

"He passed all the tests and all the functional things we do"...

I basically stopped right there.

The rest is just Andrews not wanting his name tied to this if god forbid he got hurt again. Shanahan probably shouldn't have brought his name into it from the start by saying he cleared him, but what else was he gonna say, that RG3 said he was ok and wanted to go back in so we let him? That would have been a bigger mess.
