No need going backwards. Cousins backs up RGIII or starts.

Im not sure that i would consider putting the more experienced qb who knows the offense better going backwards. If the season was out of reach than yes lets see what cousins has got. Not now.

Yeah, I didn't realize we had so many professional doctors before I made the thread, and it made more sense to start the game thread with information about the upcoming game then make a thread about RG3 and if he will play.

I realize we drafted him to ultimately back up RG3. Dont think anyone was thinking week six though. Im more concerned with our immediate season than i am with kirk cousins development or future Rite now id rather go with what i know we have in Grossman and the possibility of good rex than someone who is still wet behind the ears.

I don't really watch college football. Is Cousin's mobile? We need a mobile QB to score points consistently, and Rex can't waddle away from pressure to save his life.

yeah hes mobile enough - definitley more so than Rex, and I think that one day he is going to be a better qb than Rex - just not this Sunday.

Well i would rather give Cousins the experience now, and he be ready to fill shoes sooner then later right? What's he got to learn as the 3rd string? He needs to be ready now, and to be honest.. He looked just as good Rex did all last season against the Falcons.

Kirk Cousins was projected to be a 2nd round pick. How he fell to the 4th round no one knows. Mike Shanahan did the right thing in selecting him. He was too good to pass up when he was available. In conjunction with RG3's concussion, it was a wise move for the Redskins to select Cousins when they got the opportunity.

All im saying is I am sure there was some thought about playing/not playing him this week as well there should be.
To dismiss the fact that he suffered a concussion because he is not as fast as a race car is crazy and over the top.

I never said I feel so strongly about anything Im just making some points. Did I say I dont think he should play? No. I said it is not an idiotic thought like you guys are making it out to be.

I don't think ANYBODY is dismissing anything in regards to RGIII's discussion. However, relating a concussion from a driver who is accelerating over 100mph and slamming into other solid objects to a QB getting hit by another player is comparing apples to oranges.

What we are saying is, LET THE INDEPENDENT DOCTORS decide. Keeping him out a "extra" week isn't going to do jack shit if he's cleared to play this week. If his concussion was mild or minor, I see no problems if he passes the tests and some qualified expert clears him. So if they don't have a problem with it, why should you?

That bit about feeling strongly about it then stop watching football didn't translate as well as I wanted so disregard that part.

Everyone with a lick of sense felt the exact same way you do the moment Cousins was picked. It really irked me how many people in the media were criticizing the moveat the time, saying we shoudl have selected a lineman and/or suggesting that we were creating a quarterback controvery

Re: Week 6 Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings Pregame Thread

Man, the Redskins really need a win this weekend. To think they might beat the Giants or the Steelers on the road the next couple of weeks would be really optimistic.

If they are not careful, they are going to go back into that category of playing meaningless games for the rest of the year as early as October. I think they can beat the Panther before the Bye in Week 9, but if they loose 3 more before then, none of us will care. Come on Skins!

Fletch is a great leader. He can't give the secondary more talent.
