edit: - he might not get one this week is obvious, but he is at more of a risk, where is in two weeks after more healing of the brain he would be closer to if not fully to where he was before this ever happened. It is not that complicated that I need to be a neurologist - brain, ankle, shoulder - whatever the body part, obviously the more time it has to heal the more back to normal and the more out of risk said body part will be vulnerable to another injury.

Yeah but he's at more of a risk playing in two weeks, vs three; three weeks vs four, etc.

Anyway, he was fine in practice today so he'll probably play on Sunday. I'm actually more interested in seeing if they make Rex the #2 QB this weekend. Though I suspect they'll stick with Cousins

You actually started it about the game and hoping RG-3 would play this weekend with a link to the article about his concussion. Did you think that was not going to lead to talk about his concussion?

i say roll w cousins. the more time he spends on the field, the more he can improve. the more time rex spends on the field, well, we know how that goes.

That literally made me laugh out load SS.

and sadly we all know this to be true.....

I was going to ask who was getting more snaps this week Cousins or Rex - being up hear in Jersey it aint exactly front page news. Im hoping for Rex, just in case RG3 doesnt play. Did I just say that?

edit: if the season were over I would want Cousins on the field, but I believe rite now Rex would give us the better chance to win. Obviously knows the offense better than Cousins and has the experience.

The thing about doctors is, they don't know everything. You'll find that some will give out bad advice or advice that is outdated. I work at a school of medicine so I can assure you on this. Hell, even my own doctor has given improper advice in terms of weight training vs cardio. My friend is a doctor and prescribes people to a 5 bite diet. I could go on and on... Also, this is why they normally send you to a specialist. Because its generally something they don't concentrate or continue educating on it.
It's true, and I basically never go to the doctor. Went after the last concussion because a friend/physician assistant scared the crap out of me w/ the brain bleed risk.

Build up Cousins' trade value?

no, not what i was thinking, just give him some more regular season experience.

it may actually hurt his trade value if he slings it around like he did last week. very early in his career/not enough playing time to speculate on that, though.

If he's given the green light to play, our worries shouldn't be any more significant than they would be on any Sunday.

My issue is with those convinced the team is doing the wrong thing by playing him. #1 he has be be cleared by an independent doctor, and #2 why would Shanahan be more qualified to make that decision vs. a doctor's opinion?

Maybe you're not playing armchair neuro, but there are some people that clearly are.

Griff is not yet cleared for Gameday. He is only cleared to practice without contact. Where did you hear he was cleared to play?
