I don't like the idea of our line having to pass protect a lot more due to the difference in mobility. Hopefully, he has enough time to get passes off.

For sure. I also absolutely buy the idea that others have been saying about how we've been burned in the past, so we're understandably cynical. I think it's the writers putting out articles talking about really detailed facts about the Browns defense that makes me more nervous with RG3 out.

I agree, perhaps we will see a little more Moss in the slot, and 2 TE sets in order to give Kirk some check down options....unfortunately I feel we have to play more conservative and hope to beat them close...never thought I would say that about the Browns

So he wont "start" but will he play if Cousins wets the bed?

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

Hopefully Kyle is smart enough to game-plan around Cousins as well. We all know our drop-back pass blocking isn't perfect, so hopefully a lot of bootlegs and moving pockets. Cousins isn't RG3, but he's also not Flacco back there athletically.

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

From what I understand, RG didn't take any snaps with the first team this week. So...

I would just rather see him deactivated....if there was any chance he could play then I would want him to start. If he isn't starting then don't even suit him up and (gulp) suit up the Rex Cannon in case he gets hurt.

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I realize this falls into the category of crazy conspiracy theory, but I wouldn't be surprised if this was a head fake by Shanahan. They "leak" the info then make the announcement, could they have a last minute change of heart when the game time decision comes?

Whats it matter Cleveland is done preparing at this point anyway.

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

Just as importantly, who do you start? RG3, Cousins, or Roethlisberger?

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I bet we will still run some pistol formation and passing out of it. Other than the option plays nothing will be much different IMO. Griffin passes from the pocket WAY more than people think.

Someone on Twitter mentioned the Browns at least prepared for Griffin 100%.

What does it matter? If the Browns prepared for Griffin they're prepared for Cousins.

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

Ok then.

Heard all the reports on RG III all week, but still figured he would end up playing.

Well here we go with the Kirk show. The guy should have success in our offense since it is built for rookie. We will also see how good our line is with a guy less mobile than RG. The browns DLine will be a tough test for this group.

Was wondering the same thing. If that's the case, it would be pretty crazy. I think I'm holding out that false hope, but more just praying that Cousins is ready.

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I'd rather lose last 3 games then RG3 get seriously hurt. That being said, Cousins gives us decent shot against Cleveland and Philly is just awful. Hopefully RG3 would be healthy for Dallas.
