Wow sucks for the dude. He needs to go see AD's doc asap.
I am telling you. I have said it over and over...RG3 might have been a better pick right now, but he will not hold up and Luck will prove to be the better pick overall.
Who wants to bet that after that initial injury, RG3 was taken into that "hut" and given a toradol shot and told to get back out there. Could have been his decision or the teams, but obviously it was against the doctors recommendation.
Ask yourself how many scrambling quarterbacks in the modern era have made a long career in the NFL.
Dude shouldn't have been in the game Sunday after halftime . . . or whenever he was initially hurt IMO.
Wes Welker and AD and many others all came back, is this the same knee as 2009 in college he tore?
Saw it from the start. A scrambling QB will not last long in the NFL. Andrew Luck will have more success than RG3 if RG3 can't learn how to become a pocket passer first and learn how to throw an accurate pass besides the deep ball.
I think it's the same knee meni
One would think the head coach would protect his star player better given how much he gave up to get him.
Yes it is the same one because that is part of the reason they are not sure how bad the ACL is damaged.
Hope RG3 gets back, that kid is good for football.
And Washington sold Thier soul to draft him. They re in trouble.

The ideal NFL QB is not a Griffin type.. but a guy like Aaron Rogers (big, strong-arm, great feet, great pocket presence to avoid the rush, will scramble on occasion to get a big first down, but is NOT a running QB).
Why do you think ROOKIE QBs are having such good years? It's a paradigm shift. You need look only at our Cotton Bowl video to see why running QBs are preferable. They put the traditional defensive philosophy at a severe disadvantage.
Does anyone think his physical build will lead to injuries. He's built more like a sprinter than a tradititional footbal player. Much like a race horse those legs are highly susceptible to injury.
oh another thing ... redskins OL ranks 26th at the beginning of year. hard to stay in a pocket when their is no pocket.
Scrambling QBs, absolutely. Steve Young, John Elway, Roger Staubach, Aaron Rodgers, Fran Tarkenton..
I agree with his point, and put Griffin and RW in the scrambling category, even if he doesn't.
How can all these rookies come in and have such success if there isn't anything to the mobile-QB thing?
Washington's O-Line was awesome this year. #1 rush offense in the league, and RGIII was not hit much behind the LOS.
and if you watch RG3 play ... the reason he doesn't get hit much behind the line is because he's RG3 ...
He'll be fine. His legs are a great asset but he has thrown for over 10k college. So everyone know he can put the ball in the air with accuracy. Leading teh league passing accuracy.
This happens to mobile quarterbacks. But I think RG3 will be one of the few to move past it.
Why are preseason rankings even being talked about here? The regular season is over. Who gives a **** about preseason rankings?
Adrian Peterson is not a realistic benchmark for knee recovery. Genetic freak who had apparently like-new condition knee at surgery.
Thought today, what if RG3 has a short but brilliant career, similar to Gayle Sayers, and becomes more legendary
sucks for him wish him well
Dr. James Andrews' official statement about the surgery:
"We expect a full recovery, and it is everybody's hope and belief that due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for the 2013 season. The goal of his treatment is to give him the best opportunity for a long professional career."
Doesn't sound all doom and gloom to me...
