Betting Tips For NFL – Will Robert Griffin III Fully Recover From His Injury?

Posted by Tony Bryant on 2/4/2013 5:54:38 PM

When people in the online sports betting legal realm discuss the fates of any prominent athlete within the context of a given sport, the debate can get very heated in a short period of time. Robert Griffin III was named the 2012 NFL Rookie Of The Year this past Saturday on the night before Super Bowl XLVII, an appropriate decision when one realizes that Seattle Seahawk quarterback Russell Wilson did not play at an elite level until the final third of the season. Griffin was more consistent from the start of the season until its conclusion. He was injured, yes, but he still transformed a listless Washington franchise into a legitimate playoff contender.

Seattle had a lot more pieces in place than Washington did before the season began; Griffin therefore did much more on his own to make the Redskins a winner. Given his knee injuries – which dogged him late in the regular season and then took him down (and out) in the NFC wild card round against Seattle – a lot of professional football pundits are wondering if the man nicknamed "RG3" can fully recover.

This speculation on Griffin is something that occurs in various high-stakes poker games or other card games, but the consequences of the decisions the Redskins must make are enormous. If the Washington organization doesn't respond to Griffin's injury the right way, the franchise quarterback might not regain optimum health.  

Here's the essential outlook on Griffin's injury: It's not entirely up to Griffin himself. The Redskins need to make the kinds of responsible choices that will reduce the likelihood of recurring injury problems. Any casual fan, not just sports bettors or people interested in football betting in particular, needs to realize that Griffin's knees were torn up by the horrible natural grass surface in the Redskins' home stadium, FedEx Field. The notion of a "natural grass" surface is laughable in that the FedEx Field turf was torn up in the wild card game against Seattle on Jan. 6.

The field was muddy and sandy in many spots, meaning that Griffin was playing on a surface that did not create reliable or consistent footing. Washington Redskin owner Dan Snyder is viewed as one of the worst owners in professional sports, not just the NFL; his inability to have his playing field in shape for the franchise's first home playoff game in several years is an indictment of his leadership.

However, Snyder now has a chance to adjust, learn, and make things right. Snyder has a chance to install a field turf surface at FedEx Field. Field turf, as you probably know, is a synthetic surface, but one that has the give of natural grass and not the hard and unforgiving texture of 1980s-era artificial turf, a thin carpet spread over cement. A field turf surface would do much to improve the odds that Griffin can play without injury in his career. If the Redskins do that, Griffin can perhaps play without serious injury in the future and make the most of his talents.
