For a time I think side guys between six -- -- -- the top of the hour he was supposed to be the future of the Redskins maybe the future of the NFL.
We're RG three now on the sidelines we don't know for how long.
After which seems to be re injuring his knee that's given him problems before.
And coach Mike -- decision.
To keep this superstar rookie in the playoff games causing controversy.
In and around the league especially fans sending us right now is -- journalists NFL right.
And author of this book coaching confidential.
There is it is excellent Gary Myers who wrote a column on this day in the daily is.
Welcome to the show of thanks -- first off.
This quarterback he's taken this league by storm his smile his -- -- he's taken this this lofty franchise struggling for over a decade.
And what is he done.
Well you know I say he's got magic Johnson's personality and Michael Jordan's athletic ability.
I mean he is electric on the field and he's just lights people up whose personality.
Off the field and he has revived the franchise in Washington.
That he's been down for almost twenty years.
And now yesterday he decides to excuse me on Sunday he decides to play the game.
Where -- US NL CEO problems were a big breaks right place at first quarter -- -- that -- clued everyone watching.
He stays in the game.
You call that.
One of the worst failures by a coach during a game that you have seen.
Mike Shanahan it's been an NFL coach -- head coach for seventeen years.
You don't need to doctors on the sidelines to tell you that he can play or you knew need to do is trust your rise.
It was so clear and I was that this game was so clear -- watching.
RG three after he heard a sneak into the first quarter he just was in the same player who's basically playing on one leg.
His game is all about explosiveness.
And using his legs to create.
Opportunities for himself in the passing game in the running game.
And he just wasn't himself and I just don't know what Shanahan was looking at and what he was thinking -- keeping him in the game I think he hurt the player and I know that he hurt the team.
Pierre -- Sony has come out -- -- -- wide receiver on the -- says I don't think it was really a good decision to play RG three himself wanted to stay in.
But this is quite like it or not this a commodity you can't afford to have hurt this guy changed the fortunes and to be -- worth billions of dollars for anybody that has -- -- -- -- -- -- a very shortsighted decision by Shanahan.
This is a coach -- trying to prove all these years later that he can win without John Elway he went to -- balls in -- without Elway.
Didn't do anything in this ten years or so after -- -- in Denver this is a store near Washington.
Finally got the Redskins into the playoffs and he made -- shortsighted decision trying to win that game when he did have what I consider to be.
A backup quarterback who could help.
What is your information saying we understand that he gets on a plane with a on the owner's -- he flies down to Pensacola Florida -- -- -- for the best surgeons in the business.
Doctor James Andrews at which time we will find out the Washington Post report is true.
That he has -- -- ACL the outside in the NN AL CL and the ACL.
If true they'll be his second -- of an ACL.
And I've had doctors tell me that you know Mike Shanahan referenced Adrian Peterson.
On Monday Brian and the amazing recovery that Peterson made this year.
Over 2000 yards after.
-- -- a late in the season but I think doctors telling because this would be.
If -- requires a surgery for the AC -- torn because -- would be his second one he had won in 2009.
The recovery period is not going to be any near where it's as quick rise Peterson's and may not be as thorough and get him back to where he was like Peterson.
Could be just a year coaching confidential does talk about Mike Shanahan too great book and the first woman signed orders iPad it's going to hear Gary thanks a lot like -- -- scrambling this morning.
And now you're off to another appearance thanks so much for joining us -- I.
