This for all those people who love a good conspiracy theory. What if BB is behind RG's delay in coming back? What if it is all part of his plan to get this new offense up to speed as quickly as possible? Think about it. With no RG out there, these new receivers are having to learn at an accelerated rate. Not only that, but TB is forced to continue to throw to them, even with all of their drops and missed routes.
RG not being out there may possibly be the best thing that could have happened for this offense, in terms of the big picture. As long as they keep finding ways to win, there is no urgency to get RG out there. Let's face it...if RG was doggging it in any kind of way, does anybody here believe that BB would just let it go on with no consequence? Not the BB that I have come to know. When you hear RG's responses to the media, he almost sounds like BB. Maybe, BB is encouraging RG to say things to his doctor that cause the doctor to hold off on clearing him.
The other big plus is that RG has been practicing with the team for nearly two months now. According to the announcers at Sunday's game, he is tearing it up in practice. That's great news. That should mean he will hit the field going full speed, when he does return. It will be less likely that we will have to wait 2 or 3 games for him to acclimate himself. Also, the rookies will have already had a good deal of experience playing with him on the field so there shouldn't be any confusion as they try to work him back into the game plan.
I'm telling you, if I was a big conspiracy guy, I could really buy into this. Honestly, though, I don't get caught up in all that kind of stuff and I think it's all just a coincidence.
