    The fact that he's running and cutting without a brace is irrelavent. He'll probably be fine and be the starter on opening day. My point is that if he keeps running the option, and Shanahan will make him because he doesn't care about the player, then he won't last 2 years. Teams have already targeted him because of how good he is at running the option.

    Again, it doesn't matter if he got hurt on a play that wasn't an option read. It's what the Redskinds run the majority of the time and is what Griffin's very good at. When you're that good at something in the NFL, it comes with a giant target.

    No, actually your point was that we Skins fans are "in denial" by not thinking the injury and required surgeries were as devastating as you keep insisting. Also, your point was that RG3 would need to still wear the knee brace which you said would make him less effective at the read option:

    You: "Redskin fans are in denial of how serious his injury was and his history of knee problems. He'll have to wear a knee brace which will limit his mobility. If he continues with the option that won't help him much."

    Wrong again lol...the Skins ran the read option only 13% of all offensive plays.

    Don't worry, his knee will be just fine. Better than ever. Actually his knee will allow him to keep running around like a chicken with his head cut off...only this time he will actually be able to pick up a fumble.

    Although the doctors had to remove part of his body to repair another part of his body is nothing now days. It's like robbing Peter to pay Paul. Hell, Tiger Woods had a tendon taken from his thigh and transplanted into his right arm to give him better swing on the golf ball. His knee will be like brand new...golden!

    In fact, if the surgeon that did his operation on his knee to make it stronger than it was, he should have done the other knee for good measure so that knee would be as strong as the other one.

    If he is smart, he better wear one. Once you lose a joint... knee, elbow, toe, finger, shoulder, your are damaged goods.

    Romo is damaged goods...punctured lung, broken ribs, fixing a flat tire....broken collar bone, all beat up!

    But, Romo's most valuable weapon is his arm. Rg3 likes his legs. Let's see who does better this coming season.

    Yes, fan perception trumps all lol :D

    I think the disconnect is in what your average fan considers to be a "read option" play. Way too many think if the Skins are in the pistol formation, it s a read-option play. They have a problem differentiating between read-option plays and play action plays. They mistakenly believe that whenever Griffin ended up running down field it was a read-option play.

    The average fan also believes that QB's with bum knees who run the ball often will be able to do that for years and years when in fact the educated fan knows better. :D

    I'm guessing, then, that the average fan believes all ACL tears are "severe" ones, too? ;)

    For a QB who runs a lot? Yep.

    Yeah! To hell with what is medically correct, that's what I say. More fan perception and conjecture for me, please!

    Hanging by a thread.... dude I know better than that....and where did I screw up the facts of his surgery.

    He had ACL reconstruction at Baylor, correct?
    He tore his LCL and needed ACL replacement again on the right knee, correct?
    He required patellar grafts from both knees. The first in 2009 and the latest in 2013, correct?

    That's a lot of work on one knee no matter how burgundy/gold colored your glasses are.
    I just don't think he will be running around as much. Of course I could be wrong.

    Who are you quoting as saying "severe ACL tear?"

    Luckily Rob has the arm and the ability to adjust his game to a more pass oriented game. Links have been posted in this thread documenting that.

    He still didn't get injured on a read option play last year where he kept the ball :)
