You call that beast mode, I call it calling a spade a spade. I want this kid around for the long term because I realize our success is going to be tied to this kid. I think you are giving him a pass, and it's evident by you saying "he knows that". I think his decision making so far proves the opposite.

For the record, I have no problem with RGIII running. None. It's just if he can avoid the hit, he needs to.
I'm not giving him a pass at all. I saw him playing much differently after the ATL game, frequently getting down or getting out of bounds when he had to.

In the Balt game yeah he took a big hit trying to get more yards, but in a big game/big situation that's going to happen sometimes.

It's football, you play to win the game.

This surgery and recovery will be inconsequential if this offense isn't changed a little bit. They have to make it more pass heavy or this will happen again and again until RG3 is selling used cars in east Texas in 3 years. He's not Mike Vick. He is deadly accurate and has the know how the play a three or four receiver offense on the regular. There should be no reason he doesn't have 35 attempts every single game and 50 yards on the ground. Not 16-20 and 120 rushing yards and a broken back. He can be Tom Brady or Mike Vick. The choice is the coaches.

I agree. He did play differently after getting a concussion. You saw him slide (sometimes head first) a lot more often even on option plays. Baltimore game he got hit from behind, trying to slide. It was unlucky.

Seattle you may have seen him take more chances, it is a playoff game.

No disrespect but, you don't really expect RG3 back "a couple of games into the season" do you? Please don't do that to yourself. RG3 will be extremely lucky to play by mid November.

Kirk Cousins will be the starter for most or all of 2013. If RG3 was a simple drop back pass type of QB, ((maybe)) he could play by seasons end, but even then I highly doubt it.

There is no way Redskins make the same mistake twice... Even with Doc Andrews pep talking us.

Thank you!! i have been saying this over and over . . . seems nobody thinks RGIII learned anything from the Atlanta game because he got hurt in the Baltimore game . . . the way he got hurt against the ravens could just as easily have happened to a standard pocket passer as it did to him . . . i too have noticed that he slides earlier and heads out of bounds quicker . . . and love the big game go for it attitude which will be necessary at many points during his career (well hopefully we are in big situations, i believe we will be in many)

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

A few questions someone may help me with:
  1. Isn't a lot harder to come back from a second of these injuries to the same leg?
  2. Why do the NFL teams pick a doctor? Shouldn't the NFLPA enploy the doctors? Conflict of interest, IMO.
  3. How much you think it will hurt RG3 to miss training camp? This isn't a 5 year vet we are talking about.
  4. Who looks over the feild and determines it is safe to play on? The refs?

You see him step out of bounds a lot better in the last few games. But the throw to Garcon, was a we need this now play.
3) He has to learn it's about the season/career, not a single play - I hope he learns this and understands it from this last surgery.

One thing is for sure, he is smart, and he will look at his performance and see if it needs to change. I just wonder how much you can change that internal nature that has driven him so long.
I think this is the tricky part. His legs have been his security blanket his entire career. Can he ever realize how good his arm is when he knows a big play is a few steps that way?

I still think RG3 can be a very good QB without olympic quality speed. He can rely on speed to help him out of a collapsing pocket, but has to forget speed when the option of run or throw it away is what he has to choose from. If he doesnt learn that throwing it away is a good thing, then its going to be a tough road for him in the NFL.

In college, he threw for 78 TDs and only 17 INTs, 67.1% in basically 3 seasons. His senior year, 72.4% passing with 37 TDs and 6 INTs.

I think he realizes he can throw the ball. Those sounds like the stats of a pass-first QB to me too. Of course he did run for 33 more TDs, but he can succeed in the NFL even if he can't run at all.

Do you know he even punted 4 times for a 40-yard average with a long of 59 yards?

He caught 3 passes too.

He can do anything and everything.

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

We drafted RGIII specifically for his style of play. I'm not saying he can't be an elite "traditional" quarterback, but that would be a waste of his talents at this point in time. RGIII didnt get hurt doing anything Aaron Rodgers doesnt do frequently.

The reason RGIII had to have this surgery is because of how he and team handled his earlier injuries. He played in games where he really should have been inactive.

I dont want RGIII to return earlier than he should and play as a pure pocket passer - kirk cousins can do that. I want RGIII to return when he can play HIS style of play, like he did against Stl Louis, and not a moment sooner. The only thing RGIII needs to adjust on the field is to continue to slide when in the open field, instead of gaining another yard or two and taking an unnecessary hit.

I totally agree with you, and explain my reasoning in another thread I started, http://www.thewarpath.net/redskins-l...on-or-not.html (To Read Option, or Not)

There's this awesome free service available to those using the World Wide Web called Google. It allows you to search for information by simply entering a few key words. There are similar services like Bing, Yahoo, etc.

I'm not sure if they've been tested but at first use, they seem to be slightly more accurate than extracting information from your anus.
Next time you ask a question on this site, I'm going to reference you to google and end my statement with a "F*ck you, Have a nice day!"

I feel like I heard this somewhere before.

The surgery went well, he'll come back strong. Feeling much more relieved today.

RGIII has heart, players like him don't pull themselves out of games, he was going to crawl back onto the field if the coaches didn't directly pull him out of the game. It wasn't like it was pre-season or even the regular season. It was the playoffs!

"But we're talking about playoffs man. What are we talking about? Playoffs? We're talking about playoffs, man. We're talking about playoffs. We're talking about playoffs. We aint talking about the regular season. We're talking about playoffs, man." - edited to apply to RGIII
