"I thank God for perspective and because of that I appreciate the support from everyone. I also appreciate the criticism."
Well, he might not have been being selfish in his intentions but ultimately, him staying in DID hurt the team.
Two important turnovers happened because of his knee...
1. The pass to Garcon should have been thrown further but RG3 simply couldn't put his legs into the throw. Result: underthrown ball and interception
2. The botched snap, RG3 collapsed, leaving the ball on the grass. Result: Seahawks get the ball right outside the endzone. Easy 7 points to seehawks.
I mean we might've done better just punting the ball as soon as we got posession on every posession after we were up 14-0.
Not saying it was RG3s fault for not pulling himself out but objectively speaking, the fact that he was not pulled out (by himself, the coach, whoever) DID hurt the team.
1) His knee is ok and there is no lasting damage. Would hate for a bright career to be cut short so quickly based on this game.
2) Playcalling evolves so that he can utilize his other great skills and rely less on run-option. Only way to increase chances that he survives in this league without getting killed.
I'm worried less about the mental aspects and maturity. I feel confident that he will learn from all mistakes and be able to handle media criticism, both that which is warranted and that which is not.
Also, I don't believe it's RG3's ultimate call whether or not he plays. The final decision rests with Mike Shannahan and if he didn't pull him out of the game when he should have, that falls on him, not RG3.
**** off warren sapp
Yeah, I liked his second tweet much better. Not that I had some issue with the first other than I knew a lot of people would take it the wrong way.
Hoping for good news today about his knee (not an ACL...please..).
"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."

I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to RGIII and how I feel about him.
Love - the way he plays the game and not matter what, is willing to stay in and play through what was obviously a lot of pain.
Hate - the fact the Giants have to play him twice a year
I hope he is okay
