He's a CHINA doll. Probably tear a hammy taking out the garbage next week. Not worried.
Please remember that it is now official. He is 100%.
So I don't want to hear it when he starts fuffin up!
You won't hear anything like that from me. But I suspect that won't be why people are talking about him, likely you'll be changing your tune this fall.
You were one of the Skin fans here last year before the season started spouting how great the Redskins and RGIII were while laughing at those of us who said he''ll never last due to the way he plays and the offense is designed. We also said that due to the injury in his first year, that's he'd never be the same again. So far, that's turned out to be true. And when the season started and it was obvious he was not the same, you disappeared. Are you going to disappear again this year if the Skins season goes south?
I think Griffin will have a bounce back year, but you are right on this point. I heard Shea interviewed on the radio, and they arranged for Griffin to call in, and it was a mutual love fest extraordinaire. Neither Griffin nor Shea are going to say something bad about the other.
I really doubt it, he looked really lost out there last year. Very pedestrian. But you are a blind homer.
I actually think you guys have a QB controversy brewing and you don't even know it. Whether it's Colt or some other QB soon to be on the roster.
I think the leash is short. Lots of years wasted on mcnabb, cutler, Vick, romo (yes, even romo), quincy, tebow (not a lot of years wasted) lol... Even steve young would have ended up without a Super Bowl if we didn't muff it up during our 90's reign.
I was certainly one of those fans, and the season was (obviously) a huge disappointment. But I also didn't see Shanahan's ego being bruised to the point of moves that actually set the team back. I am not going to sit here and defend either Griffin or Shanahan because it probably was on both of them. But that was last year, and there were other issues than just Griffin demonstrating whether he was a top tier qb or not. By the middle of the season there was some evidence that Griffin was getting back on track, but then Shanahan pulled him.
Personally I think that Shanahan was being petty when he did it, but that at this point it will benefit the Skins for 3 reasons:
1) Griffin now is definitely healed to the full extent that an NFL player could be.
2) He has a bit of a chip on his shoulder to show he shouldn't have been benched
3) He has a cool new logo that he wants to display (ok that one was for all the haters)
I'll say it again, just as I said it last year this time, RGknee will never be the same as he was in year 1. His knee is already damaged to much. His being an effective QB is predicated on him being able to run around like he did in year 1. He can't do that as well anymore.
You really think a professional like Shanahan deliberately sabotaged the team because he got his ego bruised? That's ridiculous.
He did it multiple times in DC and has done it in the past. The leaks with McNabb were from Shanahan. And it was very well known amongst the DC and national media that Mike was the source of the almost daily leaks in December
Poor skins fans. They're reduced to this.
I think too much is made about the knee. Well as far on how much it affected him.
He should one day call shanahan and apologize and then thank him.
I have offered proof. You have offered assumptions
You have no cred after you came in here last year at this time spouting Griffin this and Griffin that and then disappearing forever after the 1st game.
Wrong. Please feel free to look through my posting history last season.
Credibility is with what facts I bring via links and articles from multiple sources, and your lack of is from your assumptions with no backing
Great thread well into the season
So if you are going to talk about credibility, don't make yourself look stupid
Shanahan has been known to care more about his ego than maybe is healthy, and also that he struggled with "stars" (his Haynesworth conditioning comes to mind). Whether he misjudged how Griffin's media star would rise, or whether he felt forced to prove the Seattle game wasn't a mistake, I don't know, but it's obvious from all local accounts that Shanahan was not working in the best interests of the Redskins. It may very well fall back on Snyder meddling, which would be the worst case of all for Skins fans.
As for Griffin, we will see what he does this season. As a Skins homer I will be optimistic until that optimism cant be optimistic anymore. Heck if I were a cowboys fan I would have been saying they were going to win the division even into the 4th quarter of last year's last game. That's just fandom.
No, you disappeared just like the rest of the Skin fans. A token appearance doesn't mean squat.
What are you talking about? I was posting in here nearly all season. Check my posts history.
Like many of you here talking about Griffin, you like making grand statements without actually having any facts.
Dozens of posts after week 1 is "token"
Sorry guy, you are just looking foolish here, and have gone to the "you have no crediblity" canard since you have no facts to back up your incorrect assumptions and opinion. It isn't a bad tactic on a message board though, so I commend you for the approach
