    I'll be honest, I just dont see RG3 having a very long career as compared to other QBs in the league just because of the way he plays the game. How many times has he been injured this season? I know one concussion and this knee issue...

    As far as Ponder goes. I'm an FSU fan, loved him when he was there, he was great. With that being said, to miss an NFL playoff game because you have a bruised elbow.... what a #@%*&. He has brought great shame to the Seminole nation.

    They ran their normal offense! They ran him around like there was nothing wrong!

    Stupid idiots!

    It appears RGIII told coach he was fine. Shanahan should have trusted his eyes and made the change.

    I was a big fan of McNair but there were times Fisher should have pulled him as well.

    Not to mention the alarming number of carries for Eddie George.

    Really? He could barely run after that first tweek on his knee. RG3 was clearly not able to throw the ball off that leg and could not run around like he normally would have. It cost them the game I think for sure by not putting the backup in sooner. RG3 was useless in that offense starting in the 3rd quarter....

    RG3 = Vick and not cause they're both fast black guys. Personalities couldn't be more different, but they both play with a style that makes them vulnerable to injuries.

    Like Vick, RG3 may never play 16 games twice in his career.

    With Rg3s accuracy I'm not sure why they don't just make him a normal drop back passer instead of risking his health on these option plays.
