Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

I don't know which is worse Lattimore or Mcgahee.

Speaking of Lattimore, would you all be oppossed to spending a 4th round pick on him?

McGahee suffered a really major injury in college, torn ACL, LCL, and PCL. I mean his knee was just toasted, for a RB to come back from that is pretty significant. A RB takes a lot more abuse than a QB.
Running backs take a lot of abuse, but I'm thinking specifically about the knees. McGhee is pretty much a north and south runner. Rg3 does a lot of side stepping, lateral movement,rolling one way and then darting back the other, quick shifts in direction... That's more taxing in the knees.

Additionally, mcgahees recovery was remarkable... Just like petersons. I think some set unreasonably high expectations for rg3s recovery. I prefer to take a more cautious, conservative approach. I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

Me too

The guy will be out at least a year while he rehabs, but I can see Shanny taking a flyer on him.

Worst case scenario RG III sits out a year and comes back to having both Morris and Lattimore in the backfield. Apparently those two are friends, there was an article down here with quotes RG III had about thier friendship.

RBs spend about as much time blocking, which requires similar lateral movement. I'd say their knees, in general, take much more abuse than any QB, including a guy like RG3.

Re: RGIII undergoing total reconstructive surgery: out 6-8 months

MattyK - ouch, that was a gruesome video. If McCallum can run after that, it makes me optimistic that RG3 will come back stronger than ever..

Quote:
"After grim NFL injury, Napoleon McCallum remained buoyant - Los Angeles Times

...He'd suffered a dislocated knee. Three ligaments had been torn, ripping his calf and hamstring muscles from the bone, and he'd suffered nerve and artery damage as well.

If surgery didn't go well, a terrified McCallum was told, his left leg probably would have to be amputated.

McCallum says he runs, cycles, swims and even plays basketball. Someday soon, he says, he hopes to try a half-triathlon.

...It's just part of the game," McCallum says. "It wasn't a vicious play. I was playing football, and sometimes you get hurt."

I made the mistake of getting into a one up contest with my coworkers who were talking about a college player for Georgia who recently had a terrible knee injury. Of course I had to respond with McGahee's injury and show a video to prove my point. After watching the video I became lightheaded. Lol, serves me right.

That's just about the most horrible thing I've ever seen. Did he ever play again?

Yes based mainly on the fact that we have much greater needs than a rb.
