Stupid Shannyham. RGIII had no business staying in the game after the 3rd quarter. It's one thing to send in TD for a single play when the guy is blind with a migrane. But forcing a gimpy RGIII to play...and run...was a joke.

Shanahan's not a doctor. He was cleared by one. That's all that needs to be said.

Yeah, forget the fact the guy is limping and can't throw an accurate pass.

That's the doctors fault for clearing him, not Shanahan's fault for playing an injured player that can't make football plays.

I don't disagree with the assessment. I think he probably should've been pulled earlier. Technically he was cleared. However what the article implies is a larger systemic issue with Shanahan managing player welfare issues. He played RGIII in the game in December without clearing him and then lied about it using the name of a well respected doctor technically he was cleared for this game so culpability is more than just Mike this time but kind of wondering if doctors are pressured to clear players when they should not.

I'd be shocked if Washingon ever used Andrews again.
Dude, James Andrews isn't worried about losing ****. He isn't just one of the best orthopedic surgeons around, he's inarguably the best. Every baseball player with an issue goes to him for a second opinion without fail and everyone wants him to perform their Tommy John surgeries. He's so far above reproach in his field that his word has become tantamount to law for sports professionals.

The skins would be idiotic to let him go and he would have his pick of any other team should they do so. He isn't the Mike Shanghai of orthopedic surgeons, and he's Lombardi, Walsh, Landry, et Al in a single guy.

Shanny's an idiot for risking this kid's career on a single game. If he's permenantly damaged or even diminished from this point forward for being in this game he's got only hiimself to blame. I always liked Mike but one thing I do not like is his tendency to blame other people (how many DC's did he fire in Denver?) When you got a weapon like that you gotta protect his future at all costs.

The good Dr Says he didnt clear him



"[Griffin] didn't even let us look at him," Andrews said. "He came off the field, walked through the sidelines, circled back through the players, and took off back to the field. It wasn't our opinion. We didn't even get to touch him or talk to him. Scared the hell out of me."

While Andrews eventually gave Griffin the green light to play in the Redskins' wins over the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys, and Griffin is closer to optimal health for Sunday afternoon's wild-cardgame against the Seattle Seahawks, Andrews is still uncomfortale with the way Griffin's injury was handled.

"He's doing a lot better this week, but he's still recovering and I'm holding my breath because of it," Andrews said. "He passed all the tests and all the functional things we do, but it's been a trying moment for me, to be honest with you."

This isn't the first time the Redskins have run afoul of those in the know when it comes to Griffin's health. When he suffered a concussion in a Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons, the team was fined $20,000 by the NFL for failing to properly notify the media of the severity of the injury. Instead, the team reported that Griffin was "shaken up." The team did pull Griffin from the game after the concussion.

Mike has to have one of the biggest egos in the NFL. I loved him for bringing home two SB trophies, but hated listening to the excuses when the Broncos sucked it up. I don't remember him ever coming across as anything less than arrogant.

He's incredibly arrogant, but if we knew how any of these HC's are they are probably mostly like that...no matter, that's not his problem. His problem is refusal to take responsibility for his own mistakes. I liked him when he was here but now I'm glad he's gone.

Any arm chair swinging dick coach could see how bad his knee was even during the 1st quarter. There was one option run in the 1st quarter where RGIII got 3 yards. If he's even at 50 percent that play would have gone for 30 or 40 yards. He couldn't even really plant to throw the ball by the 2nd quarter. Not really sure what they were thinking.

This was an embarrassing case of coaching myopia if you ask me.

There was no right choice for Shanahan in a loss. He is a jerk in a loss with an injured RGIII and he would be an idiot in a loss with Kirk Cousins as the starting QB. He would be taking people's crap either way. It's only gutsy and genius if you win.

Does Shanahan have eyes in his head? Because anyone with eyes in their head knew that A) RG3 couldn't run, and B) RG3 couldn't plant his leg and throw. ANYONE WITH EYES IN THEIR HEAD.

You drafted a backup quarterback this year for precisely this sort of event. Play the back up. Period.

The problem is that this is about more than just this one game. This is about RGIII's future. TD's career was ended by this kind of thing.

Let's see... risk permanent injury to the guy you just spent several draft picks to get, the face of the franchise, for a game where he can't complete a pass and is ineffective running the ball...

or put in your competent backup, who is healthy, who might win you the game?

Yeah. No choice there at all.

That, kids, is a "non-contact injury." Usually not a great sign for future prospects.

That wasn't the play. He got hurt on the play rolling out on the incomplete pass ; the play right before he hit Paulsen for the 14-0 lead.

After that play, he was done; but he didn't come out and shanahan didn't say the **** you will come out!

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.

I knew when I was watching it happen that little Napoleon was just pulling his stubborn bull**** once again. Even my son was saying that RGIII shouldn't be out there. It was obvious to everybody but Shanahan.
