    Thats because we are going to post about what is going on in NFL. Yes we are NY Giants fans but we are football fans too. It sucks that NY Giants don’t make playoffs but we are still going to be watching playoffs.

    • Snyder and his buffoonery is always at the center of attention in the NFC East. Incredible that they potentially threw away the career of dynamic QB who was just scratching the surface. That said, he was small for the position and many predicted that his body would not hold up with the style of his play. Incredibly sad....

        An MRI on the Washington Redskins' rookie quarterback revealed he has partial tears to the anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his right knee, team sources told NFL.com's Jeff Darlington on Monday. However, it is not known if the damage seen in the results is old or new, the sources said.

        Mark Maske and Mike Jones of The Washington Post first reported the MRI results.
        Griffin left Sunday's 24-14 NFC wild-card loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth quarter because of the knee injury.
        Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said at his Monday news conference that Griffin's MRI was "open to interpretation" so the team is sending him to Dr. James Andrews in Florida. Redskins owner Dan Snyder reportedly will accompany Griffin to Florida, which is not a great sign. The Washington Post report supported the notion that more interpretation is necessary, but things clearly aren't looking good.


        "One person with knowledge of the situation said Griffin might have to undergo exploratory surgery to determine the extent of the damage and whether the injuries are new," the report stated. "Another said Griffin hopes to avoid full-blown reconstructive surgery if the tears are partial, even if they are new injuries."
        Griffin's test results remain open for interpretation, and Andrews should provide a final answer Tuesday. It's too early to jump to conclusions, but Monday's news on balance looks
        You have to post the link

              • Hate to say this but I called this a few weeks ago.....

                You have your savior of the franchise running like a running back on every other play and doesnt slide or anything and takes huge hits in his tiny framed body! hmm should anyone be shocked ? how many full seasons has Vick played ???

                I rest my case.

                • They should have been careful with him and only run if he had to not run on design. Man you have Morris and great blocking line. They should have limited him running and prolong his career that way.

                  • I really feel badly for him. I said to my son after the original injury, that it was likely more than they were letting on. You don't need to be an orthopod to see his knee was totally wrenched on the original hit. He clearly was not the same. He is the future of that team and now that is in question. Maybe he'll pull an A Peterson..who knows? But if i were a Skins fan..I'd be really nervous and perhaps upset right now.

                      I think he'll be fine. More and more athletes are coming back strong after acl surgeries. He's young. Although I don't know what a LCL is.
                      Do agree with him being smallish for the NFL. He really would be perfect for the CFL unfortunately the pay is slightly less.. And by slightly I mean not even in the same stratosphere. Lol.

                      • Did you see the Ravens game when his Knee buckled. ??

                        • I think he will never be the same ever again. Sure, he can rebound from it, but he isn't Adrian Peterson. When you're this young and you go through this many injuries, you will be scarred.

                          Watch him play afraid. He'll have to change his whole style of game around.

                          • Everybody here has all these dire predictions.
                            The reality is that none of us know anything about his injury. It could be serious or he could be back next season as good as new with no change in his game.
                            None of us know.
                            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                              If it's a partial torn ACL, LCL, it's pretty bad. Isn't this the 100% factual diagnostic?

                                Of course no one here is a doctor at all (might be a few fans that are) and we haven't seeing him up close but that knee is and was obviously in bad shape. Anyone who so it buckle knows it was BAD! Putting my dislike for the Skins aside, they really mistreated his knee issue. Can he bounce back? maybe but this is the second time in his career he has hurt that knee. And I have a friend that Tore his ACL, MCL, and PCL, and that was 8 years ago, he says his knee is not the same ever, he feels its always weak and always has that fear of it tearing again because his knee gives out when he is trying to play basketball or baseball. not easy at all
