    Nope, 8-0. There's a duboya in the column.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    And not to forget RGIII concussion in October. Remember Falcon QB Chris Miller, had to retire due to repetitive concussions, as I recall he couldn't remember where he lived. These guys are so susceptible to career ending injury, the ones who survive (remember Randal Cunningham) learn to stay in the pocket more and run less, except of course for the great Fran Tarkenton who Bob Lilly and company probably chased for at least a mile over the course of their careers.

    I think for a quarterbacks health, there are guys who are very good at scrambling and others just, run recklessly. Especially rookies. They "thought" they were fast in college althought now, they have defensive ends running them down on the outside corners. RGIII appears reckless from what little I've seen him play. Exciting but, reckless. Wilson, 50/50 on him. Sometimes he makes the big gains and takes a slide. Other times, he makes a big gain and takes a big hit for 3 extra un-needed yards.

    The difference is who's healthy for the playoffs and quite possibly the long-run career.

    The only criticism I had Of RW in the Wash game was that he held the ball too long a few times trying to scramble and took sacks and/or hits he didn't have to take. Like you said, he may think his speed is greater than it is at this level...

    To his credit, the last two weeks he had more sacks than the prior entire season. I'm not sure if he had some injury that wasn't worth mentioning or the coaches were hounding him to stay in the pocket more often? The way PC's been coaching, I have a feeling they are trying to keep him inside more, give up a few more sacks. In turn, hopefully keeping him healthier and not having to show much of a new playbook going into the post season. I believe that is the only reason the last two games had lower scores and soo many sacks. Restrained Wilson and playbook = conservative game. I'd go almost so far to say that after watching the prior 4-5 games it was almost like watching Chuck Knox's playbook at times.

    How many pages does it take to make it a "book"?

    Ground Chuck regards.

    Lynch in the first half vs. Lynch in the second half yardage sort of tells some of that story in the last two games. Didn't see any end-arounds, reverses and pitch and passes..

    Yeah, I remember Tark running around like crazy (and driving opposing defenses crazy) back in the Purple People Eaters days. And he showed QBs don't have to be 6 ft. 4 in. to be effective (like RW 1 has said recently).
