I honestly believe Cousins and Morris could have won the game for us if RG3 had been pulled out after his second TD... but I don't think they could have won the game if Cousins had started. I really hope that this doesn't effect his long-term career. I would be surprised to see him at all during the first half of next season... hopefully he makes a full recovery.

Hopefully once they get into his knee it will just be an LCL tear. 3-6 months recovery time. If it's both LCL and ACL, then it could take up to a year to fully recover. Also, I'm getting tired of people blaming Shanahan. RG3 told him that he wasn't injured, that he was just hurt. Professional players play hurt all the time. Now if RG3 said he was in a lot of pain and Shanahan still put him in, then that's a different story. Plus, after he tweeked his knee in the 1st qtr, wasn't he cleared to go back in? Wouldn't that be Dr. Andrews fault?
The problem is, as a coach, I feel it's their job to make the difficult decision of what's best for both the team and the player. Any "run" the Griffin did was apparent he lacked even 50% of his ability. The coach IMO should recognize this and despite RG saying he was fine. As we both mentioned, any player is going to say they are okay to play hurt. I'm not bashing him. I would have done the same thing if I was in his position I'm sure. (Rg3 that is.) If I was shanahan I would have pulled him after the knock down out of bounds that he was slow to get up from.

RG lives in my parents neighborhood less than a mile from me. Maybe I'll tweet him and see if he wants to play golf this spring on their golf course. Haha
