Judging by my behavior during a game it's not a sport to me either.

It wouldn't, Kirk leading this team in the future is my opinion based on certain variables that I have observed, that is all.

I think wilsons size works to his advantage... he's so small, he's always had to be extremely careful with his body and how he moves, what hits he takes, how he goes down, how he reacts when contacted, etc. If he hadnt learned those skills years ago, he wouldnt have made it this far.

RGIII, on the other hand, has had the body type to be able to deal with the smaller, slower, less powerful defenders he's gone up against in college. This is the NFL. Defenders are smarter, faster, and stronger. RGIII cant "get away" with playing the way he played in college. And its not just a matter of this injury making him "learn his lesson." Its going to take him years to develop the "6th sense," instincts, and muscle memory hell need to have a safer (yet still lethal) game.

I also dont think the comparsions to McGahee and Rivers work. Rivers is a statue of a quarterback. McGahee is a pounder. he doesnt cut and isnt as shifty as RGIII, and never has been. Sure, RGIII can - and will - adjust his style of play, but then he wouldnt quite be the guy we traded for either.
I wouldn't say RG3 lacks awareness, I think he's fully aware of what he's doing, he just needs to dial back on being so aggressive and get the heck out of bounds.

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.

McGahee came back from an injury that was 10x worst than the one RG3 came back from...

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?

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.

Lattimore? No I didn't like him when he was healthy, now that he has no knee I really don't like him.

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.
