"In 2012 the Redskins are gonna be the NFC East champions, and that starts right f–king today.” Kyle Shanahan, 1/1/12
Garcon is more of a Jordy Nelson, bull type of receiver. He would have put up decent numbers but he still needs some talent around him to be truly effective. I doubt he would have made a great difference in our record, but he definitely wouldn't have hurt. I hope Hankerson or Robinson makes some huge strides these last 7 games.
Don't forget, Coles was a complete malcontent who eventually brought us Moss, hard to be mad about that. I'm looking forward to Garcon playing again later in the season or next year. It's obvious that he and RG3 had some really good chemistry. I'd like to see it play out, if only to build on 2013, if he's capable of playing again this season rather than just dumping him on IR. Morgan is starting to step up a bit, Hankerson still leaves a lot to be desired and the Davis loss was crushing. That's why I'd hold out hope for PG to play again this season, if at all possible.
I was one of Garcon's biggest critics in the offseason, but he isn't getting a fair shake and he will be a productive player for us. The first game he every played for us he housed a 77 yard slant for a TD and then left instantly after that, last time we did that was sometime in the 80s. He has not been right since the first quarter of week 1, although he showed in preseason and week 1 that the talent is there. It just seems like the football gods decided to strike our team with crucial injuries for some reason. If the injury reappears next year and lingers, then we have a problem. Garcon is better than Coles ever was, and Garcon has all the talent in the world.
We should just IR him, stash him for next year and let him heal up for next year. Him being here won't make us win 7 straight, all his presence will do is make the game a little more watchable until the defense decides to blow it for us.
I don't see Garcon being a #1 receiver when healthy; a good #2, maybe, and as of today with the other receivers being sub-par, yea he would be considered #1 for that reason alone. I don't 'hate' the guy, I'm more pissed about the overall receiver success, or lack thereof, in recent history, or maybe in the choices of receivers brought in. The money Garcon got to come here IMO wasn't worth it, then he goes down with his toe injury. Josh Morgan, Brandon Lloyd, and others have been paid good to come here, and failed; maybe its past history lurking in the back of my mind, but it flat out sucks that receivers come here and for a variety of reasons, end up not being worth the money, and Garcon's case IMO is starting to reflect this.
I hope I am wrong and will be very happy to be wrong, but damn...
Too soon to tell. Coles was successful in Gibbs 2.0's offense. He had over 90 catches one season, but his YPR average wasn't what he expected. We have seen Garcon for one quarter this year which makes it far too soon to make any comparisons.

At this point the seasons awash. Garcon should do what's best to get healthy and be as close to a 100% as he can next season.
It would be nice for him to get some playing time with Griffin but not at the expense of aggrivating his injury and having a chronic problem. Pierre is under contract for four more years let's try to get the best out of him while he's here.

You better run, better run, outrun my QB

You better run, better run, faster than RG3.
This is an insult to Coles. I thought LavC gave everything on the field. He was a decent pro when he left here as well. He didn't have the impact Moss had for us for sure but I think the FO really mishandled his situation. If In hindsight this is another example of our training staff mishandling an injury.
Garcon's situation is unique. The Redskins claim he could play if he could take the pain, but who knows if they know that for sure given their injury management history and the fact that they misdiagnosed him. I think Garcon is doing the right thing by listening to his body and seeing other experts.
Jim Haslett is a horrible coach.
A WR with a bum toe seems dicey. I hope whatever the resolution is, I hope when he does come back "100%", it doesn't just mean he's just pain-free. I'd hate to get to the other side and find out he's lost a step or some explosion.
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."
--- America's Game
According to ESPN's Injury Report page, Garcon practiced today for the first time in a month....Crossing my fingers.

He's gonna be better than Coles in my opinion. That year Coles had 90 catches he only had 950 yards receiving, that's horrible.
He and docs damn better ****ing get it fixed up RIGHT or else that foot will be a career debilitator for the rest of his career. If that plantar plate tear results in a misaligned toe or whatever other complications that'll make you squirm once you see it (i.e Deion Sanders toe pic), Garcon is wasted money. Forget about this season and have him back to as close as 100% as we can get.
