Rob Ford: RG3 is injured, players shouldn't focus on concussions

Apparently attending the Bills-Falcons game Canada last week  -- Twitter went crazy over it -- has made Toronto mayor Rob Ford an NFL expert.

We've already gone over his inclination not to change the Redskins nickname, and now that he's making weekly NFL picks  on Washington D.C.'s 106.7, we can expect plenty of comments like this.

For instance, how "the whole world" knows that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been bothered by a serious injury.

“I’m worried about Griffin’s knee, I think he’s got a serious injury he’s not letting anyone know about,” Ford said Thursdsay, via the Washington Post. “... They should get him healed up, and get someone healthy in there, because you can see his leg and it’s not helping the team."

Thus, if Kirk Cousins suddenly takes over for a "healthy" Griffin in the upcoming weeks, you can credit Ford with being the catalyst for the move.

Oh, and Ford also is picking the Redskins to beat the Chiefs at home this weekend.

As far as protecting players from head injuries, Ford said “It’s ridiculous. If you’re gonna play the sport, you gotta know that you might get banged up. When I coach my kids, I say, ‘Guys, you know, you either get hit or be hit. You gotta be the hunter or the huntee.’ And I’d rather be the hunter. Concussions are bad, but they’ve been around for years and years and years, so I think you just strap on the gear, do up your chinstrap and hit the guy as hard as you can.”

In other news, Ford said he absolutely believes he'll be re-elected next year.

But before you go wondering just what the hell Ford is smoking, wait, we already know the answer to that.
