Relax boss, just having some fun, and making the point that injuries can happen in or out of the pocket. You said Brady never had a serious injury.

Griffin is fearless (would be an awesome Green Lantern! ) not reckless - the two can look similar. As he learned through the season he made better choices, but an unlucky hit, and a playoff game on the line, left us where we are. If he heals, then he will know more about his body and the way the NFL level is played.

But I think the main point is any qb can suffer a year long injury, even qb's that stay in the pocket more than run. And I would say Brady's jamming his leg up in the air was far more reckless than Griffins running, he just didn't get caught that time.

Personally, I think it would be a cool game if the players actually were motivated to play for real. And that would only happen if they had something on the line.

1) The winner of the game (NFC vs AFC) - would get $500,000 extra in cap money for each team in the conference.
2) Or whichever conference won -- each team in the conference would get one extra draft pick after all teams have drafted (ie. 8th round)
3) Or whichever conference won would host the SuperBowl (ie. give them some home field advantage). ie. San Diego = AFC, New Orleans == NFC)
etc..


These are just minor advantages, but perhaps just enough to give a little incentive to the teams/players.

what about if the winning conference gets 1 extra home game per team during the next season afc/nfc matchups. so if the nfc wins, for example we would have 3afc teams at home, and 1 away. if the nfc loses we would have 1 afc home game and 3 away.

or

the thanksgiving tradition gets changed and the winning conference hosts all 3 games the next season. they could have probowl recognition that weekend with small presentation to the probowl players in each game that weekend, so that the Skins would recognize the Fletch et al whether we played thanksgiving or that Sunday.

That would probably interfere with the total number of home games, or it would force you to play the other schedule games away. No way are owners going to give up season ticket holder money.

I hate the idea of giving bigger meaning to an otherwise totally meaningless game. It's what makes the MLB all-star game a joke, IMO.

The Pro Bowl is a boring, meaningless game. Just make it a skills competition and perhaps I'd tune in.

Well, I was thinking that the same conference games would be used to balance it out. I don't know if that incentive would work or not, I actually liked the Thanksgiving weekend thought better after I wrote both out.

It's certainly a concern, and anyone who isn't concerned just a little bit is in denial. There's concern that any player on the field will be at risk; but we see with a lot of quarterbacks, such as Brady and Manning and Manning, and even as far back as Elway and Marino, that these guys hardly ever got hurt. And you only have to watch one game to see why: they release the ball quickly every time. Yeah, sure, Brady tore his knee; the risk is there. But the best QBs lessen the risk by getting rid of the ball quickly. Of course, RGIII has become example everyone likes to point to, but it's reasonable for fans of Big Ben and Aaron Rogers to wary of injury as well because those two players so frequently extend plays (with Big Ben the problems isn't as bad since he's roughly the size of King Kong).

So I'm with you, I'm concerned about RGIII's health, but not substantially more than I would be if we had anyone of a number of quarterbacks.

Cool Re: Redskins now have 5 Pro Bowler- Kerrigan and Fletcher to take Aldon Smith and Patrick Willis' spot in the Pro Bowl

Hurray for our Pro Bowl linebackers, but what about Alfred Morris? I really don't know why he was snubbed. Could someone please tell me?

Back in the day winning was enough motive for them to play hard. With that said the players also didn't make that much money.
