I got the reference. I was just replying to it indirectly.

And as to "who" - I would really like specific examples of this amorphous narrative made by team representatives.

Interesting article summarizing the last 5 qb's to suffer ACL type injuries and their subsequent return the next season.

Hilarious.
This Bronco team has me worried about our schedule after the eagles- packers lions bears broncos 49ers falcons. I think we need to stop fooling around with PWhite and Rex and get an extra OL and Safety or CB. I wish it could be as simple as move DHall to safety if he fit but w/o Crawford i dont think that is even possible.

So really only one quarterback came back full strength right away, which was Phillip Rivers. I am sure it will take some time for RG3 to feel completely comfortable with is knee.

Also Carson Palmer came back quicker than RG3, which I thought was very interesting.

I think the Redskins win 31 - 27. I think the Eagles are leading at halftime but than depth and talent start to show up and the Redskins score a couple of late touchdowns to win the game.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

How many people saw D Thomas break off that TD run and immediately thought of Garcon running free after a bubble screen from Griffin.

It's a small sample size, and it may be that I am more aware of Griffin's recovery than the others, but I tend to think that these show more the minimum we can expect rather than the ceiling that Griffin is capable of.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Griffin is just a different kind of guy. All this talk of him possibly being rusty or not up to speed is BS to me. I expect him to come out and look like the same guy before the injury last year. Like he never got hurt at all.

He barely played in the preseason last year and it didn't hurt him any. He's been practicing full speed for weeks now. He's going to be good to go.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Can the Chip Kelly's offense really run and function as quick as Denver's? Cris collinsworth said the play can't even come thru over the headset to the QB until the play is whistled ready to play by the ref.
I can understand a 2min drill but few teams can run a manning up tempo game and I don't see Vick doing it in hostile FedEx making the appropriate blitz pickups with our pass rush, and being effective. Nah I'm not buying it anymore.

No rule against the O-coordinator calling 2 plays once the headset is activated.
If they have the matchups on the field that they want, it is possible.

I think he will be up to speed and be completely healthy physically, but I would be shocked if he came back completely the same right away in all the aspects of football. Two of the best quarterbacks/competitors ever in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning needed time to feel completely comfortable after their respected surgeries. Even RG3 struggled some the first time he came back from a knee surgery at Baylor after he won Big 12 freshmen of the year and everyone that watched college football thought there was something special about him.

I'm not saying its impossible that RG3 comes back especially since he has gone through a similar situation before, but I am not expecting it and would still be pleasantly surprised by it.

That is true. Perhaps the fans just make it too difficult to hear.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Forget defensive fatigue, defensive looks, and all of that. It all hinges on how the redskins front seven play. The key players will be Cofield, Orakpo, and Kerrigan. Cofield will need to consistently collapse the pocket. Orakpo will need to have a lot of discipline to contain Vick and McCoy and be able to make some tackles against the run. Kerrigan will need to make the plays we know he can make in the running and passing game. It will all be about spacing and not giving the eagles any.

One caveat, aside from Brady, none of those QBs ever had anywhere near the talent, natural athleticism, work ethic, intelligence or overall game that Griffin does.
