I wish him the very best recovery, and hope he won't be limited and will not get any other type of surgery from now on.
RG3 reportedly suffers torn LCL; surgeon says return for next season 'not the norm'

Only dead fishes follow the stream. "Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught, we will realize that we can't eat money."
For what it's worth, maybe the protocol should be to close the old thread every time there's an update worthy of a new thread. The mara-gate thread is a good example. I never know if something new happens with that unless I read it elsewhere. Every so often, I see in the news what caused that old thread to be bumped. On the other hand, some people think the most ridiculous things are thread-worthy. Good luck trying to sort that out. Closing one of the two threads instead of merging would solve the problem either way, though.
But it's easy for me to give advice on this. I'm not the one in charge of managing thousands of people's discussions. The mods really do a great job and deserve more thank you's than they get.
Also, RG3 is a hero. Anybody who criticizes him for putting himself in danger is criticizing the thing that got him where he is in the first place. No matter what, the guy doesn't want to throw in the towel. That's admirable, and that's what I want my kids to see. A goal-oriented guy like that will recover in 6-8 months with no problem.

Good new is when he comes out of surgery he will be RG3.1 . Surgically enhanced and better than ever...we can rebuild him!
Sorry guys just trying to lighten the mood. I've been as sick a everyone over this...heres to a speedy recovery Robert!
I'm not a suck up (ask Tarhog, Om, TK, Henry, and Jumbo) in the least, but this is our community and there needs to be organization. Threads like this, as you said, deserve to be on their own because they're breaking news or something that the fans need to know. Same with when Sean died; it needed its own thread, not to be buried in the "Sean was shot" thread.
Aside from that, the grossly overpaid and overappreciated mods do their jobs very well, and they're on anything but a power trip. We're five digits' worth of *******s, and they do a tremendous job of making sure that this site doesn't go to hell in a handbasket. Their job isn't to be liked; it's to make sure that you still want to come back here because we can actually talk about things related to the greatest team in the history of all-time ever of ever.
And to be clear, that isn't aimed at you, robotfire, I'm just quoting you because you brought it up. I understand that you agree for the most part (you probably don't think that we're all *******s, which is fine )

Here's to you, bubba! You will be missed.
Robert gave up his heart and body for the Redskins-now they must do the same for him. Priority one-give him the proper amount of time to heal-no rushing- 2- when he comes back-use him responsibly not recklessly, 3 protect him- from himself and from rushers. Get a legitimate right tackle, design a new scheme that maximizes his talent without putting in jeopardy. Looking over replays of the season, he took a huge beating in the backfield. So too did Luck, but he has the size. Perhaps Robert needs to beef up a little - and that segues into 4. Robert must mature to the next level. He's proven he has a huge heart, courage and toughness. Now he must play smarter. and learn to protect himself. This is as painful lesson he is learning but one that is necessary for Robert to become the great QB he aspires to be. And as he puts in the long hours of rehab-I hope his teammates take note of what it takes. Perhaps then next season, the Leonard Hankerson's of the team won't drop passes just before Robert gets crushed in the backfield trying to make a play.

Hopefully the 6-8 month time frame is correct, but I could easily see him start the season on the PUP list and miss the first 6 games. They really need to protect him better and he needs to learn to slide or get out of bounds on every play, I can't imagine that knee could take another injury.
Good luck RG. Take your time and get better. We need you man.
Horrible, but not surprising. Get well soon Robert. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
Thanks to Soup for the sig!
The positive is that RG3 is still young and this has been an eye opener for the organization and Shanny. Hopefully they never again ask Griffin if he feels okay to go back in.
They will need to watch him and keep his drive and determination in check......no rushing him back.
I'm not prediciting how fast he will come back, but if anyone can make a quick recovery it's him. His work ethic is unmatched.
That being said, I will hold my breath every time he get's hit now wondering if it will be his last play in the NFL.
We can only hope everthing is going to go perfectly. He is under the care of the best doctor in the world with such injuries. Three things must be done:
he needs to have the best possible rehab program and i am sure Dr Andrews will put him in the same regiment that made AP even better after his injury.
Dr Andrews has the final word on when he is ready to start practicing, and take the field. NO WAY is he to be rushed back no matter what the time frame is. The kid is only 22 years old, If he misses the entire 2013 season for his own good, then let that be. Having a 24 year old stud at QB is not the end of the world.
Synder open the wallet and fix the damn field. Hell consult every expert and find out what type of surface is the easiest on the joints if you must. I want to see a field like GBs or Arsenal's they say that type of artificial/natural grass surface is awesome, fast and forgiving. Do it Synder at least our players will be playing half their games on world class surface.
Robert hang in there, we are 100% behind you and love you. Get well soon.
Oh no! We suck again!
Well this ****ing sucks. Best of luck in rehab, Griffin!!
