re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I have an idea. Start Cousins and have RGIII line up as a wide receiver. No, wait....

I think it all comes down to how he's actually doing on Sunday -- and as it is Tuesday, who the heck knows what the situation will be. If he's near 100%, it is hard to imagine he won't start. If he's closer to 75%, I could imagine starting Cousins with RGIII in reserve. But if he still has swelling and soreness and is function at 50% or less, we're crazy to let him play at all.

And as far as I am concerned, with what's at stake, do a little misdirection and take the fine if you have to.

re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I would prefer them to start Cousins with RG3 dressed as backup if needed. I believe we can make the playoffs this year, but not at the expense of RG3 reinjuring himself or having any setbacks. This season is already a win in my opinion. As a life long Skins fan, it's been a long time since I've felt we could beat anyone we were playing. This team is going to be scary next year when we get Orakpo and Carriker back and add a few pieces. I still think we can make the playoffs this year, which is bad news for every other team because no one wants to play us.

re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I would be fine with Cousins starting as I worry about future implications of further injury. We have invested alot to make Griffin the QB of this franchise for the future and I would hate to see a worse injury occur due to the ligaments already having minor tears. Of course I said this after the concussion and he has played just fine so perhaps I worry too much.

re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

RG3 needs to rest his knee during the week. He'll still need to practice regardless. Maybe he'll be less mobile but he can scramble or roll out if he doesn't stay in the pocket. The 2 times RG3 has gotten injured this season is when he ran for yardage. Mike Shanahan's decision to play Rg3 or Cousins probably won't be announced until before the game against the Browns.

If you sit RG3 every time he gets a sprain, he will never play. He will always be potential and never reach it. This is an opportunity for him to accomplish his goals. Next year is never guaranteed. RG2 is right, the plan is for him to play. He is chasing glory. You can't be scared. If he sits out then the "Luck is better than RG3" crowd wins. No playoffs for the Redskins. RG3 failed would be the judgement.

re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

It honestly seems like people are waiting for RG3 to get hurt not play and the Redskins not make the playoffs. After that those are the pople who will say he is a bust. Hegets no glory for all the sweat and tears and licks he has taken. He took those licks to go to the playoffs, not sit at home. If the Redskins don't go to the playoffs RG3 deserves to be on the field. The outcome of all his studying and hard work would be determined by Cousins. That would not be fair to RG3. If he can go then let him go.

re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I tend to believe Garcon at this point, but I'm quite sure he didn't think about spilling the beans. I'm sure he got a phone call from Mike in regards to leaking any plans during the week again.


No need to rush him back unless he's given a clearance by the medical staff. The last thing we need is for a weakened knee to be blown out. Not only will this season be lost, but next seasons will be as well.

re: Update: Kirk Cousins to Start vs Browns

I found it odd that in such an important play off rush, Pierre was on t.v. and radio all day long. Not that i'm mad/angry/think he's lazy/heads not on his shoulders, but I just that it peculiar.

RGIII sits this week, plays next.
