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.

Rg3 isn't playing because he's not healthy enough to play. I don't know why some of you are assuming hell be active. All signs point to him being inactive. This is why we drafted Kirk cousins.

If this was the playoffs I'd think he'd play

Im sorry, unless youre on the teams medical staff and have you evaluated rg3, you can't make a statement like that. Well, obviously you can make whatever statement you want, it's just uninformed

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

RG3 said he wants to play, but it wasn't his decision. This is probably just a safety precaution. Pretty sure he'll be playing next week.

The pistol only works so well because of rg3. With Cousins, it is probably no more effective running out of that formation than any other.

But how is making the announcement now on Sat night a head fake by Shanny? I mean Cleveland isnt having any more practice/ preperation at this point.

Why is that? Because RG3 can run faster the Cousins? You do realize that there are more threats from that formation..

Most of the big pass plays from that formation come because Morris eats chunks from the defense and the LB's bite up. It'll work just as good with Cousins. Who is still pretty damn quick.

I figured our pistol scheme was rg3 exclusive. I just don't see any qb on our roster but him being effective in that formation. I expect a lot of screens and short passes, but no pistol.

Maybe you're right, and they've put that in the gameplan. I just think the D will get to kc too fast in the pistol. Cousins might be quick enough to pull it off, but I suspect rg3 is making it look much much easier than it actually is.

Despite their middle of the pack rush D, I don't know if Morris will be gashing them like our other opponents b/c the de's/lb's aren't going to respect kc like they respect rg3... Still hope he has a big day though, we need him. I actually think Cousins will show his leadership and have a big game throwing it, but not because LB's are biting on the zone read.
