Redskins win in OT

59 posts in this topic

Exciting game but I'm inclined to believe that it was Griffin's worst to date as a passer, although I will reserve final judgment for when I can take a peak at the all-22. That injury could really haunt us depending on what the prognosis is.

Yeah I hope he's ok. I just saw the injury for the first time and it looked pretty bad, however he's a physically gifted freak, young and hopefully nothing shows up on the MRI. It's crazy the kind of punishment these younger players like Luck and Griffin have been taking. Today we saw another epic collapse of the OL, Luck getting sacked hurried and knocked down all over the place. I hope both RGiii and Luck can just make it through the season sheesh!

Word on the street is the MRI turned out negative. Assuming the info is good (~80% chance it is), we'll just have to see how Griff feels the next few days.

He'll probably sit out most of the practices, see how he feels on Friday to determine if he goes through the morning walkthroughs on Saturday, and if he does fine he'll probably be a game-time decision. I'd bet he plays but I'd rest him.

FYI

Per ESPN980

Redskins announce per MRI is a knee sprain. No torn ligaments.

Certainly good news.

That was a scary looking hit.

Hopefully he'll be back for them soon. The NFC east is still there for the taking.

Good for him and good for the team. :) Hate to see a player go down, let alone one that brings a level of excitement to a team and their fans.

Ah, got it. Putting it that way is a little more worrisome,

no worries dude :) I tend to brace for the worst and hope for the best. Its all good now though - just get down a little earlier next time ;)

Agree.

Good news it is not expected to be too serious though. It didn't look too good.

I wish he would stop running around like that. He's been injured twice and it's only his rookie season. I am not a fan of the Skins, but you have to hate seeing these young kids come into the league so full of potential, and constantly get injured. Some of my favorite QB's probably would have lasted longer if they didn't take so many injuries.

He could have easily ran out of bounds again and left it 3rd and manageable. Hes gotta stop it. =/

Cousins needs to get some love, that was a great job by him! He kept the Redskins playoff hopes alive.

Hope RG3 is fine. Cousins should be able to fill in if needed for cleveland

I've said it before and I'll say it again, as much as some people worry about the scheme and the read-option most of the abuse Griffin takes is easily preventable by Griffin and Griffin alone. The biggest, most vicious shots on him have all come on called pass plays where he's chosen to take off with it.

I'm sure he'll learn with time, he just has to manage not to get himself killed until then :(

    • Frankly, I think the media uses a flawed business model.   They don't want great ratings, they want continued growth in ratings.  Once a show hits its a plateau, they inevitably begin introducing trashy soap opera stuff to try to capture a new demographic and increase ratings.  If they would just stick to broadcasting football, they would have a popular product year after year, albeit with flat ratings.   Jerry Seinfeld said one of the reasons his show lasted so long was that there was never a message attached to the show.  it was a show about nothing.  If it was run by typical Hollywood people, after a while, Elaine would get pregnant by her boss, tackle the abortion issue; George would be battling substance abuse, etc..  If you noticed, comparing the first Seinfeld episode to the last episode over about 15 years, the characters were in exactly the same place in life.  With a typical media/Hollywood person running the show, each character would have been married and divorced three times with kids trying to find their gender identity.    The media broadcasting the NFL needs to just stick to what the product is and leave it at that.
    • 5 our of 9 chose the Jags   That is good news for the Colts
    • 24-13 Colts. Finally a strong first half   Gore gets 100 yards on the ground and 150 total yfs   Hilton has two scores and Dorsett the other    Bortles gets sacked 4 times
    • The mouthy player just turns my stomach, the "me" player needs to be slapped down   If you look in dictionary under Hard working superstar WR then there is number 88 staring back at you!   Wayne learned under the best and he followed Marvin's lead, We are very blessed to have those two for nearly 20 years

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
