If we could see RGIII hobbling around and unable to plant to even throw the football, than certainly Mike ****ing Shanahan could. To me, that's what's possibly condemning about this. Not so much that he couldn't run (everybody knew the kid was hobbled). But when his knee structure was so questionable that he couldn't even really step into a throw, there really should have been a decision to sit the kid down.
Hey, I don't disagree with you. I agree with all of that, but I also believe that Robert earned the right to make that decision himself as both a great player and captain of that team.
