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 :(

    • I agree, Pagano says a lot of vanilla statements -- but in this case he is saying "well documented", which is true -- our running D, with Art in the lineup was allowing significantly less YPC.  This is when he is actually on the field, not sitting on the bench.  Here are the stats  -- http://espn.go.com/blog/indianapolis-colts/post/_/id/13395/the-statistics-show-that-the-colts-need-art-jones-on-the-field-to-stop-the-run :   WITHOUT JONES ON THE FIELD 257 rushes for 1,201 yards (4.67 yards per rush) 3.12 yards before contact per rush 12 rushing TDs (4.7 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 26 percent of rushes WITH JONES ON THE FIELD 165 rushes for 615 yards (3.73 yards per rush) 2.15 yards before contact per rush 2 rushing TDs (1.2 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 22 percent of rushes   ------------------------------------------------------------------ These numbers are pretty staggering, at least in my opinion (all of them -- the contact before rush sticks out the most to me, but the YPC, TD, and First Downs are all significant, too).   All that said, Jones has not been sidelined more than he's been on the field.  This PED suspension doesn't help the team and as you've said earlier, we won't miss him that much.  I don't agree with you that we won't miss him due to him not being a significant contributor when he is on the field (that he has been) -- but, he hasn't been healthy enough to be on the field long enough to really warrant missing him.... violating the league substance abuse policy doesn't help this team and doesn't help Jones.  If I'm the coach/GM, Jones is on a very short leash (or perhaps already dismissed) for this.
    • And so another rumor is laid to rest. Good riddance.
    • Do it for Pagel          
    • When is the draft going to be?
    • It was similar to what Jones ran at Baltimore but not the same.  That is why I was I didn't think his poor play was earth shattering.   Yup, I ran the numbers of the games he played and the games he didn't play.  In the games he played the Colts allowed a lower YPC average than the games he didn't play.  The odd thing as I was running the numbers though, is with Jone in the game the opposing team used the running game a lot more.  With Jones teams ran the ball an average of 28.667 times per game, without Jones they ran the ball 20.33 times per game.  Without Jones the COlts D gave a lot more long running plays, with Jones, they gave up a lot more first downs via the ground.    So, I will admit I was wrong about the higher YPC with Jones.  But I still would not quanitify what Jones did as a significant contribution to the run defense, mainly because teams were able to grind out the running game and keep the chains moving and keep the Colts O off the field.   Lastly, quoting Pagano doesn't really mean a lot.
