"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."

Glad the surgery went well but my only worry is that he may be carrying around a fresh Junior Mint......

If you "can't trust Robert" to say he's ready, then you might as well never play him again. Face it, you're going to be a nervous wreck no matter when he plays. You'll never have fun watching this team again unless you let it go, trust the team doctors and accept that injuries just happen sometimes.
In hindsight people are acting like he shouldn't have played Sunday, didn't believe he was 100%. Sure looked 100% when he put up 14 quick points. We all noticed him hobbling, but I for one, was ready to see him put up another 14, it just didn't happen.
Sorry, your post just points to this 'Robert is selfish' nonsense that's been going around. I trust and believe in ANYTHING Robert Griffin III does, and you don't have to worry. Despite how nervous Dr Andrews said he was about Robert, he still had the Dr's blessing to play. and will not play next year till he has it as well. So no need to treat Robert like a baby about it.
In other words, what happened doesn't change my opinion or RG3 at all, he's a badass for staying out there and leading his team.

Seriously, look at this, less than a month ago, she praises his guts and ability to coach the Redskins out of 'groundhog day'
And now, Shannahan is a 'rock-head', and everyone in the organization is responsible for the leg, not other football players.
She also states "Let's be clear, this was not an old injury", then completely acknowledges his 2009 ACL tear. She doesn't even pay attention to what she's writing, Sally Jenkins is a ****ing idiot.
Coach of the Year to selfish, idiot, rock-head in less than a month. Just shut up Sally.

It's very very good news that the surgery went well.
I do agree with Tulane Skins Fan that the first and foremost goal right now is for him to be 100% before taking the field in a real game. Freak injuries happen, and we can't protect against them, but injuries that happen because he's not completely healthy are on us. We cannot afford to be careless anymore.
That being said, it sounds like Dr. Andrews thinks he'll be 100% or near it by opening day. Here's to hoping that is the case.
NO Pressure, No Diamonds, KNOW Pressure, Know Diamonds!
Griffin said that he was going to watch the game with his family and that he will never attend a Super Bowl if he needs a ticket to get in.
Guaranteed RG3 will never be put on the Madden cover! This place will go nuts! Although Megatron may have broken the curse!
I've been through this surgery, and been through the partial tear, that they just cleaned up the cartilage, and meniscus and re-habbed it. I think the word we are getting is the best possible news. When they were saying partial tear, and they weren't going to do anything, that is what scared the crap out of me. That wasn't going to heal on its own, and was just asking to be re-injured down the road.
If they were really thinking next year was more important than long term, they would have left his ACL alone. I think his knee is going to be pretty solid by the start of the season.
Kind of an open time table. He is not saying when in 2013 thats for sure. I hope he's a fast healer and is ready for the start of the season. If not I have all confidence in CapN Kirk
So just to get caught up on everything when Dr. Andrews wrote "ACL was a redo" does that mean just a tweak/fix of the old ACL or a complete reconstruction? According to Rich Campbell the re-do means a complete reconstruction (according to his tweeter). Any updates on this or verdicts on what re-do in this case actually means there is a big difference in a tweak/fix vs complete reconstruction with new grafts etc...
