First of all, I would like to sincerly apologize to all Redskins fans for momentarily rooting for your team. You can blame RG III’s knee and an ultimate playoff debacle on me, I suppose.
Anyway, this game proves a couple of things about the NFL.
1. Quarterbacks will lie about their ability to play if they are able to. Trusting an NFL QB to say “Nah, I’m not the guy. Put in the backup.” is an exercise in futility.
2. Mike Shanahan is an idiot.
Of course I’ve been pointing out what an idiot Mike Shanahan is for years.
I do hope RG III’s knee is not seriously damaged. Watching it buckle to the side in the fourth quarter yesterday, I’m afraid that I believe it probably is. In that case I hope he can fully recover. I like the guy, and since I’m no longer a Cowboys fan, I’m looking for new players to root for, and frankly I would love to see RG III and Andrew Luck (and Russell Wilson?) duke it out for “best QB of 2012 draft” for years to come.
