    Time to lowball the hell out of the Skins, offer Locker, CJ and two first rounders for RG3!

    It was dumb especially given the fact they knew they had to be careful with RG3 seeing how they used a pretty high pick on a QB that was never gonna throw a single pass unless RG3 got hurt. A QB that has proven he is very capable of holding it down when he is called upon. I can't blame them for starting him, but after RG3 started limping badly when they had that 14-0 lead, that's when he should have been pulled. And that's not even in hindsight.

    Haha, it really wasn't that hard to call. MOST scrambling QBs are injury prone, thats not even including the smaller ones.

    I hope this doesn't impact his career, he was probably the player I was looking forward to seeing develop the most.

    I found myself watching a lot more Redskins games than ever before because of him.

    RG3 is probably one of the last guys I'd bet against, he'll bounce back from this Im sure.

    I'm not even talking about after the initial injury. He got 120 carries in 15 games. He's built like a twig and their giving him 8-10 carries a game half of which are designed runs that set him up to get destroyed by a linebacker.

    The most carries mike vick ever got was 123 and he played 16 games! Mike Vick is actually built more like a runningback and even he can't stay healthy. That entire redskins organization is stupid for thinking they could pump 120 carries into someone like RG3 and not injure him.

    But of those 120 carries, how many were intentional runs? Coaches can't control when he scrambles.
