Oh boy...this is going to cause some drama.
I assume this is the renowned James Andrews. I mean like who else wd sense the power to speak up. This could look bad for Shanihan and bad for the NFL.
With Arians out today and Griffin vulnerable, I think I want to change my picks to Baltimore and Seattle.
Meh. BAL and SEA are winning anyway because they are better teams. I actually liked MN in the upset before news that Ponder was ruled inactive.
This news will get squashed. Miscommunication, follow procedures, etc. They'll think of something.
I don't know if it will. Doc was pretty clear they didn't let them look at Griffin, and then Shanahan said they did, but that's not all that caught my eye. "Scared the hell out of me"....that phrase isn't something doc would say unless he's out to throw Shanahan under the bus. He made it dramatic and he's likely looking for blood. Interesting timing too.
They might be able to muddy the waters, but if Griffin gets hurt... I don't know, esp given it's Andrews speaking out. But I cd be naive.
Meh... maybe but now esp I don't see a destabilized offense able to win vs Baltimore. and I don't see a hampered Griffin winning against that potent Seattle defense.
So Shanahan throws up the white flag after eight games and then throws up the red flag after his guys get him back in the hunt. Beautiful. Shouldn't it have been reversed?
Shanahan is going to get a call. It should be instructive to see how he avoids reprimand or a fine or whatever Goodwrench will have up his sleeve.
Shanahan will be fine. This is only about player health and medical procedures. It's not like he did something really harmful to the game like having a camera out of position.
why would Goondell fine the Redskins for ignoring a league wide mandate?...after all, Goody has only been taking credit and boasting about how he's the one making the game safer for the players with the concussion protocols...no...I think he'll fine BB and the Pats for KEEPING One of their players out because of a suspected concussion without medical proof...I think 2 million and 5 first round picks should do it...cheatin' Pats
What I take from this is that Dr. Andrews turned out to be yet another expensive bust for Dan Snyder
Painful to watch him playing with this injury. Have to question Shanahan's priorities here.
Did Shanahan do anything wrong here (rule wise)? There are specific procedures in place for head injuries, but is there anything wrong with not having a player looked at for a knee injury?
Also, are there things players have to do to be medically cleared? Andrews even said that RGIII passed the medical tests, but it was still his medical opinion he probably shouldn't play.
I mean, what Shanahan did was questionable. But did he actually do anything wrong here, or just ignore the team doctors advice and lie to the media?
It's the truth he would of never done that Elway
I disagree completely. Why don't you take this crap it to the political forum.
Whoa, Sherman really is a Richard isn't he?
Brother I'm just prepping you for what the media is going to say. It's already all over twitter
Shanahan is a POS. This is a WILD CARD GAME and he's taking that kind of risk with the future of the franchise. That was sickening
Biggest douchebag in the NFL.
...and you advanced the notion over here, not as a warning of the media but as a racist based reality. I think that irresponsible by everyone that's pushing it.
Wow, Atlanta is only -2.
They're going to lose next week.
