Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -Benjamin Franklin
But somehow its poor RG III, being rushed and coerced on the field by mean Shanny? Seems ludicrous. But its a great story for the Shanny haters so why not push it, speaking of which I bet Lavar and Dukes cover this one today and treat it like gospel.

Of all the things we have to worry about with RGIIIs recovery the team rushing him back before he is ready is a long way down the list in my opinion. No way we take any risks with the guy who are building the franchise around.

I think the whole RG3 blame game is silly.
Here's the answer to the whole thing:
The Redskins don't play him until he's cleared and he CLEARLY looks like himself. Until that point, Cousins gets the nod. It's best for business, it's best for future proposals (whether we accept them for Cousins or not is irrelevent, but if he plays well in Griff's stead and we find another quality backup, it's an option that can be explored), and it's best for Griffin's future both individually and for the Redskins chances at keeping him around.
If Griffin complains, so what? You're our quarterback. Our franchise. The guy we sold the farm for. If you think for one second that this team is going to let you go out there and reinjure it because you weren't ready, you need to be drug tested.
For the record, I don't think he complains too loudly if that occurs. He sure as hell won't like it, but that's because he's a competitor. He's got a good head on his shoulders and a good attitude. He's a team player.

One AFC executive estimated that free agent Greg Jennings would command only $7-9 million per year on the open market.
A source told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that retaining Jennings is a "50-50" proposition for the Packers, and it'd cost them a $10-plus million tag. "I can’t see a team wanting to marry itself to him long-term," the personnel man said. "Solid-starter type. I don’t see him in that bona-fide feature role."
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Packers' organization is "torn" on whether to retain Jermichael Finley for 2013.
The coaching staff and GM Ted Thompson favor keeping Finley, while "members of the personnel department" want him released. If the Packers did cut Finley, they could retain free agent Greg Jennings via the franchise tag. Meanwhile, extensions for Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews loom. Finley's 2013 cap number ($8.75 million) is slated to rank second to only Rodgers ($9.75 million) on the team.
Bengals.com concedes the team will "probably" franchise tag free agent RE Michael Johnson if the sides can't strike a long-term deal before March 4.
As of the middle of last week, there was "not much traction" in long-term negotiations. Cincinnati's two critical free agents are Johnson and RT Andre Smith. In an ideal world, they'd re-sign Smith and affix the tag to Johnson.

Okay, moving on now...
One more nugget about Greg Jennings:
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is not a "huge fan" of free agent Greg Jennings as a player.
Jennings has openly flirted with the Dolphins, but the interest apparently isn't mutual. That doesn't mean the Dolphins won't go over Philbin's head if they strike out on Mike Wallace and Dwayne Bowe, but it appears one of Jennings' most likely suitors won't be there to goose his market. According to an AFC personnel executive, Jennings would command only $7-9 million per year in free agency, and "has to be careful about pricing himself out of the market."

No. DR. JAMES ANDREWS came out and said it because it carries weight. Andrews didn't have to say it because he knows 9 bad mother ****ers in this world and gets Xmas presents from all of them.
It wasn't to benefit Andrews, it was to benefit the Redskins.

"Weak right 40 gut. Yum! Yum! How bout that one baby!"
Back to what we are her for, what you've done a good job at keeping us up to date on...who is the next player to join our beloved franchise.
I wonder when we'll get word of a restructure for Hall. That would give some insight on the direction of the off-season, I think. One, I'd like to get a feel for how much we can free up and two, I think it takes a little pressure off the draft. If the team targets Toler ... do they really even think CB during the draft? I would imagine that Richard Crawford is pretty nice as the #4 guy ... and hopefully Minnefield can emerge and steal a roster spot. Of course, if the team avoids CB in free agency, I think they need to go CB at some point in the draft for no reason other than depth.
