I know we want to be careful with RGIII, as he's our bread and butter, but it seems like an awful lot of fans are trying to coddle the guy.

If RGIII says his knee is good and he's ready to play and the coaches agree, I think I'm gonna go with that.

And honetly Griff's knee shouldn't be much of a factor (not talking about planting to throw) since he's a QB not a RB, AD gets hit every play and was fine. As long as RG3 slides and steps out of bounds he should be ok.

I think this guy's good enough to play himself into game shape in games that count. Playing him just to get some rep's is just not worth it.
I can somewhat understand not letting him play pre season, even though I think that's a mistake. Everyone needs a few game reps. I mentioned before that Brady also played pre season after his injury, even though he hurt his knee in Sept the year before. But not even letting him do 11 on 11 in practice? C'mon. That 100% coddling.

I think cautions is not letting him play pre season. Otherwise he should be doing everything else.

imo you want to give it as much time as possible for the ligaments, tendons and muscle to re-strengthen and bond.

a slip or an awkward twist of the knee and who knows if it will hold.

i dont see any reason to rush him onto the field as i think this is being rushed anyway. let him take baby steps, let things settle. i dont even mind if he misses the first few games.

Like Matty said, it's been barely 6 months since his surgery. I'm glad the team isn't pushing him too far. It would be better to let Cousins start the first several games and make sure RG3 is absolutely ready to go than to let RG3 start and possibly ruin his career. Let's think long-term here.

To me that's going overboard on the side of caution. I expect him to be rusty the first few weeks. We're still talking about a very young player, not an established vet. They should at least let the kid do 11 on 11, which is the closest thing to a game simulation.
I am sure he will do 11 on 11's pretty soon. I still wouldn't be surprised to hear he was going to do one series in the final preseason, just to shake it all out.

Why risk a lineman rolling into him or some other incidental contact?

I don't see the problem with giving him a week or two to ease back into things.

What's the rush? It's still July. A lot of guys wouldn't even be on the field right now. AP was on PUP for the first 2 weeks of camp last year.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

Well one of the smartest considerations I have heard is
"Why risk him in a meaningless game to a Practice squad guy killing it for a starting gig"?
AND.....I doubt any human could find better care and rehab than Robert has received.....

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

After how last year ended you want to trust RG3 with what he says about his knee? Please. I still think he's wired to play no matter what and compete, even if it's a pre-season game at 50% (not saying that's what percent he is right now, just that he seems to think he can play under any conditions).

Save him from himself. Let him know the time table in advance. No preseason games so don't get your hopes up. We'll go at it with this time table.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

Watch RG3's press conference, he says over the next few weeks he will be eased in and eventually he will be doing the 11 on 11's so IMO everyone RELAX. HTTR.

I'm with you, although I don't expect him to do any pre-season.

I feel RG3 will probably start the first regular season game, if not a couple games in.

Otherwise we best pad him in bubble wrap before we let him see the field again.

Lots of Chicken Littles around here.

6 weeks til the season opener. Plenty of time to get him up to speed.

Since when did letting him do cutting, among other things, so early after ACL surgery equate to wrapping him in bubble wrap?

He is doing a whole lot more than just about anyone else who has ever torn an ACL at this point in his recovery. Outside of AP, who else has torn an ACL in late Dec. or early Jan. and be on pace to start the season?

When did everyone on a forum learn more about ACL's than the guy who does the surgery and is considered one of the foremost experts on ACL recoveries?

Is that what I said? Because I'm pretty sure I said if he doesn't start after a few games into the regular season.

At that point I think we'd be playing afraid.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

He's going to play wk 1, at least that's the plan barring a setback. Taking things slow is to help ensure he doesn't have that setback. Trust the process folks.
