Per ESPN, RGIII to be shutdown for the season (1 Viewer)

So a benching and inactive for a week wasn't enough?

Shutting down a "franchise QB" without injury? Has this been done before?

Seems to indicate that there is an injury which we don't know about, or at least confirm the chatter that he hasn't fully healed and shouldn't be playing.

 
I hate to be that guy, but do we really need a separate thread for this? The first page of the Shark Pool is literally littered with RGIII threads.

This ain't your father's NFL. Gone are the days on Ronnie Lott chopping off his finger, Brett Favre playing 300 consecutive games, or Jack Lambert playing with enough painkillers to kill a small horse. No, today you have Darren McFadden, Aaron Rodgers, and now RGIII - and people not playing because they might get hurt.

 
Do people really think that this is about RGIII being hurt, or not palying well, or anything other than Shanahan putting a ##### slap on the kid who he probably feels has been sabotaging him?

He hasn't been playing well and hasn't all year. Seems overwhelmed. Last year he seemed to do everything right and was a step ahead. This year he's doing everything wrong and is a step behind.

So? Do you really think he's not the 3rd best QB on the team?

 
Shanahan knows he is the franchise qb. Why let rg3 continue to struggle? In baseball, you send a flailing starting pitcher to the minors. In football, you bench your starting QB.
The guy needs to have a little confidence left to come back strong next year. Let him sit and watch, be humbled if he hasn't been already, then get an entire offseason of work. Seems like Shanahan is genuine in thinking it's the best move for the franchise to me.

More like shelved instead of benched. Nothing to play for. Coach him up and give him a go next year. If things don't improve, move on.

It's also about Shanahan giving the finger to the owner. Shanahan wants out; he won't be in Washington next year. This is just his big exit drama, trying to make himself look like less than a failure.
