    The difference between the Redskins and the Giants

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...njury/1812693/

    No way in hell would Coughlin pull the BS that Shanahan pulled yesterday.

    The Washington Redskins' treatment of franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III will be the subject of debate for the offseason and likely for the rest of his career — especially if the heralded rookie suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament Sunday; he was already playing hobbled because of a sprained knee.

    Griffin was knocked out of a 24-14 wild-card loss to the Seattle Seahawks one day after James Andrews, a team orthopedist, told USA TODAY Sports he was "scared to death" over Griffin playing with an injured knee and a brace.

    And Sunday, for the second time, Andrews insisted he never cleared Griffin to return to a game in which Griffin initially injured his knee, even though coach Mike Shanahan again tried to lay the responsibility on him.....
    I used to have alot of respect for Shanahan, but this is a damaging story.

    +1, It's not only Shany's fault either, RG3 tried to play hero this year and what everyone said will happen, happened.

    Some dumb skins fan was like "YOU GUYS..HE INJURED HIS KNEE BECAUSE HE WAS TRYING!". He injured his knee because he was selfish. He knew better than that, besides he was already injured BEFORE that play. Nonsense.

    It truly is amazing that this guy is getting no blame, as to why he insisted to keep playing. Do the Redskin fans really believe a coach is going to take a player out?? The fact is RG3 thought he was unstoppable, ran into an elite defense and got exposed. Shany's could've still played play action but he knows what RG3 limits are and that he cannot read defenses all that well. If they continue with that offense expect the same next year. Also it's pretty sad the Seahawks are getting no credit for the way they played yesterday. I was watching First take and it's all about RG3 and how if he was healthy, the Redskins would have won. Seriously?? What about Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.

    He re-injured his knee because he's 22 years old and had 70.000+ people chanting his name.

    I'm honestly shocked that Shanahan could be that reckless with this kid's career.

    It was an act of hero ball. Shanahan should be absolutely ashamed of himself, and guess what? he's DEFENDING his decision. Unreal.
