Do you play RGIII?

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Our coach was suspended merely for suspicion of hurting players. Shannahan flat out lied and refused to follow doctors orders. Let's see if Goodell has the balls to take this one on. That is if he can peel himself from ...

Our coach was suspended merely for suspicion of hurting players.

Shannahan flat out lied and refused to follow doctors orders.

Let's see if Goodell has the balls to take this one on.

That is if he can peel himself from Ray Lewis' jock strap.

Exactly why a running QBs is not what we want or need.

I play him. It's win or go home and he gives you the best chance.

The ONLY way to make it work RELIABLY is to look like LSU last season... three QBs. at least. and they all have to be option QBs. But then you have commoditized QBs and they don't get the payday.

RGIII, Vick..... Both Eagles and Skins have found them selves trying to get through a game with a QB that has seen little or no playing time this season. You saw Denver try and do it with Tebow, if Tebow had gotten hurt then they would have to change their game plan to suit a passing QB.

If you had RGIII, Vick, and Tebow on the same team you would have a shot as when one went down the game plan wouldn't have to change.

Wilson will not last long if he keeps blocking for Lynch.

At the end of the season teams with Passing QBs win championships and Super Bowls.

I play him.

He got them there.
He wanted to stay in.
He's the franchise quarterback.

If it were Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers... there wouldn't be a second guessing of the decision. If RG3 is the franchise quarterback, then he should be treated like one and given the same type of respect from the team.

The Redskins had one hell of a season and have a great future ahead of them. They made a lot further than anyone thought they would this year.

There was a point in the game when it seemed obvious not only could he not run, but he could hardly even walk. I probably would've yanked him there. You just sort of knew that things were only going to get worse.

I tell RG3 to shut his trap and I listen to the team doctors advise.

If Doc says OK, then I send him in.
If Doc say NO, he sits.

Shanahan ignored the Doctor.

Re: Do you play RGIII?

The other important thing about this, is how it changes the future relationship between Dr. Andrews and RGIII and the Redskins organization.

In medical jargon among doctors, it's called a "non-compliant patient." The kind of patient who ignores the doctor's instructions or keeps un-doing the good the doctor has done (for example, a person who doesn't take their prescribed medicine, or a diabetic who doesn't follow instructions and won't change their diet and lifestyle, a heart attack patient who won't quit smoking, that's considered a non-compliant patient). Many doctors don't take very kindly to that kind of thing.

If I'm Dr. James Andrews, I take a long look at whether or not I want to continue treating RGIII, or if I want to just walk away from him and say, you know what, I can't repair your knee if you keep messing it up, it's not worth risking my reputation of success and excellence on you, I think you need to see somebody else.

From a medical perspective, Dr. Andrews is exposing himself to potential legal and professional risk here, and at a certain point it quite frankly may not be worth the hassle and headache for him. Dr. Andrew's name and reputation is on the line here, and RGIII ignored his professional consultation, and the Redskins basically lied and put words in his mouth and treated him like crap. Surgeons are measured professionally by their successful outcomes, and RGIII was an epic fail of an outcome, through no fault of Dr. Andrews.
