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.

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

So everyone says Kirk is starting.
Doesn't necessarily mean that he will be playing the whole game or that there are packages which Griffin will be playing.

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.

I'm 100% sure we will still run the same exact offense. Cousins is pretty quick. He's no RG3, but he can still run the same offense that RG3 was running. Morris gets his best runs from the pistol, and it would be foolish not to run it.

Of course against a lot of the defenses similar to the Browns we run that "quick pitch" in to the backfield that allows Morris to pick his own seam. I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of it tomorrow.

He ran a 4.9 at the combine so he is a threat for 5-6 yards and not 90.
