I'm sorry but its perfectly reasonable to question judgement here. Does anyone here know of any comparable where a qb was allowed to play when he was this hobbled? I've never seen anything like this before.
I'm not saying he should have been pulled immediately, but i think we saw enough in the 2nd quarter that it was apparent that the injury was now also affecting his ability to throw, protect himself, and execute the gameplan. At minimum, the discussion should have been "we're going to give you one more drive and if it doesn't look better, Kirk is going to go in". I don't want anyone fired, but a mistake was made. That's clear. I just hope they learn from it. Shanahan needs to let the doctors make the call and trust his eyes, and RG3 needs to put the team first. I don't blame him for wanting to compete and I'm sure he wanted to compete for the team, but you have to have faith in those behind you.
