BRAVO!
 
2013-01-07 12:01:31 AM  
Nice one subby.
 
2013-01-07 12:21:49 AM  
I'm glad this was submitted as a standalone, because it would have been lost in the game thread. This is early HOTY material. It's timely, relevant, funny, and kinda sick. Right on target.
 
2013-01-07 12:32:48 AM  
Not subby because I forgot to put it in officially, but all props go to Foaming in the game thread. That flat out floored it.
 
2013-01-07 12:36:53 AM  
He should have been taken out after he came up limping (much more) after the second TD. End of story. Yes of course the kid is going to demand to keep playing but for god's sake have SOME consideration for his career and the franchise and sit his ass down. Not to mention that at that point he was so injured he was hurting the team being out there.
 
2013-01-07 12:43:04 AM  
Yeah, no.  Watching the Theismann video still makes me cringe.  This RGIII injury isn't that big of a deal.  He'll be fine.  Theismann had to quit football.

Is it too early to start talking about the Subway Curse?

It was in the game thread. Foaming posted it first.

I sure hope TFer Foaming submitted this headline as he/she made the original joke.

This is pertinent. The last star whose knee exploded at the end of the year had a pretty good year the next year. I think RGIII will be okay.

I am pleased to say that I have never seen Joe Theismann being injuried. I vaguely remember watching the game in which it happened, but I looked away at the exact moment his leg was broken. I immediately heard how awful it looked so I just kept looking away during the replays.

And yeah, RG3 should have been taken out earlier in the game.
 
2013-01-07 01:15:04 AM  
Shanahan should be tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail. There is no excuse for keeping little Bobby Three Sticks in that game. Oh, he wanted to play? Of course he wanted to play. He is 22, maybe 23 years old and thinks he is invincible still. He was in his first playoff game and he didn't want to quit. It is the coach's job in this situation to be the grown up and sit him, not to let him keep limping around the field until he falls over and injures himself even worse. For shame, Shanahan. For shame.
 
2013-01-07 01:24:56 AM  
There is something so sickening about watching a limb bend in an unnatural way.

It was Danny Snyder's spray-painted kitty-litter field that nearly took out his knee. He's the guy that need to be run out of town. That was awful.

Don't see it, if you can help it. That which has can been seen cannot be unseen.

I guess he'll be Bobby 1 Stick this offseason.

There was a Vikings linebacker that broke his femur on Sunday night football a couple years ago. I saw it and said what the hell? They never showed the replay and I don't believe it has ever been shown on tv again. It was very bad. He went flipping over with his leg just flailing about. It's not like I'm going to google that video either. I also saw the Theismann game. I believe they actually showed the replay because they didn't realize how bad it was. I think they only showed it once though.

I wonder what went through Stephen Strasburg's mind while watching that.

The movie "The Blind Side" starts with the Theismann injury. Just a word of warning.

I forgot to mention that in the Vikings situation they never even let the audience know what happened. The announcers simply ignored it and didn't know what to say. I don't believe to this day I ever heard any announcers refer to that injury as a broken leg. He came back and played but now isn't playing anymore. And dang it I've forgotten the player's name. He was quite good.
 
2013-01-07 01:29:35 AM  
I have no affiliation for either of those teams or RG3 really, but I felt bad for him. He should have been taken out after that second TD as mentioned. So now a sprained knee is potentially a torn or dislocated knee.
I hope they dont blame it on the field and turn yet another outdoor grass field into an artificial surface, but it should be in better condition. If European stadiums can play two or three soccer games a week with all the rain and less sunlight, I figure they can play eight games in Maryland. Obviously, American football is played in the middle of the field, and Im not sure what other events are staged there.
As lithe as he is and as many hits as he has taken, it doesnt seem like he will have a 10-15 year career like some of our most revered QBs. It seems he will get 5-7 years at most. The read-option wont be viable when he is 28 and averaging 12 games a season because of injury.

I just hope RG3 doesn't show up on late night TV talking about his prostate all the time like Thiesmann does now.

Dan Snyder should have been run out of town on a rail long before this. Today just added fuel to the fire.

Rereading your post, it makes sense now. I misunderstood.

RG3 will be out of the NFL in 3 years, if he makes it that long.

Early HOTY?
I think so.

Shannahan is going to catch mountains of **** for not pulling him at halftime. This is a possible career ending injury.

Cousins is decent enough and better than having your quarterback for the next ten years get all his knee tendons torn.

It was stupid. RG said he could still play, and Shannahan believed him. He also said that believing in his gut was "sometimes a mistake".

RG shouldn't have finished the Dallas game, he couldn't move in the pocket. It was sad to watch. The only reason Washington beat Dallas were the three interceptions.

So, not only is the season over, but the rookie everyone has placed their faith in has been damaged. How much so, we don't know yet.

As a coach, you have to know when to make the call to put in the backup. You can't let an injured very young kid tell you he can still play, when he hadn't been mobile and was obviously hurt.

FNG: Shannahan is going to catch mountains of **** for not pulling him at halftime. This is a possible career ending injury.


Agree with the first part of your sentence, but career-ending? I saw him walking around on the sidelines later on.
 
2013-01-07 02:36:54 AM  
I think he'll be alright. The trainers let him walk off the field. Wouldn't have done that if he had sustained structural damage. I could almost understand letting RG play if there was no one else, but Cousins has shown he can get it done as well.

FNG: RG shouldn't have finished the Dallas game, he couldn't move in the pocket. It was sad to watch. The only reason Washington beat Dallas were the three interceptions.


Only one of the interceptions actually went back for a score. The other two died mid drive. Or are you assuming the Romo would have gotten the ball into the endzone on the first two INTs?

so mike shanahan is the the bad guy coach from varsity blues?

maybe ali larter can cheer up mr griffin

I'd say he's more like the spoof of the bad guy coach from varsity blues.

Theisman wasn't injured in the HGH age. RG3 will be back next year and better than humanly possible.

Well, the one pick was in easy field goal range, so that was an early 3 points erased. That early in the game, those points probably would have changed the way the game was played, at least somewhat. Also, if one of the picks had resulted in points it might have gotten in Romo's head more.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Also, if one of the picks had resulted in points it might have gotten in Romo's head more.


Err, what I was trying to say is that if they had gotten points instead of one of those picks, who knows how Romo would have played from that point.

parazen: Theisman wasn't injured in the HGH age. RG3 will be back next year and better than humanly possible.


The legit medical technology and techniques they use these days is also a bug reason for terrific recoveries from injuries, too.

Whatever the reason, I imagine Bobby Three Sticks will be back, as good as new, at some point next season.
 
2013-01-07 03:40:26 AM  
brandent: I also saw the Theismann game. I believe they actually showed the replay because they didn't realize how bad it was. I think they only showed it once though.

It was shown over and over and over, although after the first couple of times the announcers warned the audience before showing it.  They even showed it again at the end of the game, being pretty dramatic footage and all, excellent camera angle. Perhaps that is one of the reasons the incident is so famous.

/iirc imho and all that

If RG3 sat out, then everyone would start making comparisons to Jay Cutler. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

After they had the 14-0 lead and Griffin was hobbling around, pretty much everyone say "He has done enough".

Maybe, but I doubt RG3 would sit there with that Cutler air of nonchalance. Look passionate and mad about being pulled and cheer hard for the backup and people will be talking to their TV's saying "Dude, he trying to save your career! "

/maybe
