This is a plea to all of us: fans, coaches and owners. Please, let Robert Griffin III take time to recover from surgery and get 100 percent fit before putting pressure on him about next season.

And this is a plea to RGIII himself: Take it easy and get well before venturing back on the field. Even on the sidelines, you will still be the stellar role model we have come to expect, and the Redskins will do just fine. 

What a great ride we had this year. Thanks for the memories!
