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.

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.

Re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

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.
