Can't wait to see RG3 back in action full speed.

Something tells me the NFL, even with the safety of the players talk, would try to emulate that style of play.

Since the money for the NFL today is in 35-31 shootouts with QB X throwing for 450 yards and 5 TD's and QB Y throwing for 350 yards and 3 TD's, player safety trumps all.

Its gotta be about safety and not money... Right? 18 games per season doesnt mean more money but does mean more safety...
No one wants to see a 6-3 game. That's not what I'm saying. I just don't like that the rules weigh so heavily towards one side of the ball.

Kind of apples and oranges here.

In the Seattle game he probably knew he was going to need surgery after the season. He gutted it out when he probably shouldn't have, lesson learned.

Recovering from a 2nd knee reconstruction with an entire season in front of him is a different story, I think he's going to approach it a bit more wisely.

Have to learn your limitations somehow. Give the guy a break. This was his first season in the NFL. I believe he now understands what he can and can not do with regards to sacrificing his body. His knee is a result of what he can learn from. I think he will be much smarter with a season under his belt this year.

Guys I've heard critique the new rules....Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Rod Woodson, Tom Jackson, Lavar Arrington, Brian Mitchell, Darren Sharper and a wr from GB James Jones...to name a few. I could go on and on. None have lawsuits against the NFL.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

RG3 will be fine. I just sucks that this entire off season will be devoted to rehab. I wonder if he will get any reps in pre season.

I wasnt trying to disagree with you. I think what the majority of fans want ends up winning out. And as of now, that is shootouts. So protecting the QB and making it a pass happy QB/offense driven league wins out and thats the direction that the NFL is taking.

I wasnt meaning to say you wanted a 6-3 game with what I was talking about in that post. I was meaning it as if thats what the majority of fans wanted, the NFL would move that direction as best they could among the lawsuits and talk of player safety. If bringing back defense to make it fair for both sides of the ball actually brought in more money. The NFL would move that direction imo.

Honestly, I hope not.

I hope for our sakes you are right. I personally don't trust the kid when it comes to his own health. I think he still feels he has to prove how "tough" he is, and that he'll readily rush out before being truly ready. You can't trust him, not after that fiasco. I have a feeling Shanny doesn't trust him either concerning his own health.

I'll give the guy a break when he proves it, until then I'm going on by his actions so far. We can hope he's smarter than what he showed last year, but the proof is in the pudding. I'll remain skeptical until I see otherwise.

Not sure he's any different than the of any of the greats that have played the game. Ask any Hall of Famer and they'd all probably say they wouldn't leave the field even when hurt. Remember Favre against the Saints a couple years ago in the playoffs? The guy was so bruised up afterwards he looked like he was in a car wreck. Can anyone imagine Favre saying that's it, I had enough and pulling himself out of the game? I don't think so.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Good point Matty.

It all falls back to the mentality of football and of the football player. The coach is responsible for removing player x, but at what point? Hindsight is 20/20. If he miraculously led us back in that game at the end and afterwards we were told he won the game with torn knee ligaments he would be even more of an icon. QBs have done it before.

He's not any different, and I never said I blame him. He's doing exactly what I would have done. I said I don't trust him concerning health issues.
