That is one of the dumbest things I have heard.
Yeah even golic seemed surprised he'd think that

Nor should he. I'm a huge fan of his, eventually he'll be gone though but I hope not for another full season.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

I feel embarrassed for Greenberg if he seriously thinks Cousins could/should be traded because we might pick up White.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

honestly, i think he's just stirring the pot, it's part of his job.. anything to get reactions from people positive or otherwise... which he obviously succeeded in doing... judging by the posts here. lol

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

What MG was basically saying was if Pat White can succeed here he makes better sense as the backup QB because the offense would be run similarly to how they run it with RG3. He was using White more so as a hypothetical. Just saying that in the long run a QB similar to RG3 makes more sense than Cousins. I don't necessarily agree but that's what he was saying

I like this free agent approach. The cap hit is a blessng in disguise. Next year we get to have another "advantage" and Mara can't stop it.

Neither do I.

Cousins showed last year that we don't need a backup with similar traits to RG3 to be successful. And Kyle S. was able to change up the game plan accordingly. This isn't a one trick pony type of offense.

We really won't be able to tell if it was a blessing in disguise until next offseason when we 1) can see what our W/L record was, 2) accurately assess the holes that couldn't have been filled in FA this current offseason.

I've heard a few people call it a blessing in disguise, but I think it's too early to tell.

2 years without the same amount of cash available is hardly a blessing. It's forced us to be restricted in a season where we are coincidentally not chasing a desperate need.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

More and more teams like the read option so this decision is a gamble to maybe get a draft pick for 2014. Pat can be used to play RGIII in camp while Griff recovers and he very well could resurect himself during preseason.... Win\Win situation

Some fine tuning here and there and there's really nothing wrong with the offense we have now.
I agree the offense can be just as potent, but it can't be the same offense if that makes sense.

Make no mistake, the offense we ran last year will produce diminishing marginal returns. The diminution is the only question. The main factors here are defensive adjustments and RG's overall health/confidence in his ability to plant, cut, push off.

Some of us are still hoping the gimmick plays were more a reaction to the (horrible) pass-blocking than Shanahan's determination to make our franchise player into a running QB.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

A QB similar to RG3 is one who's deadly accurate. Cousins, White, and Grossman are far from that.

Why do you have Cousins in the same group as White and Grossman? Cousins is miles above them. He could start for a lot of teams.

You say he's not deadly accurate? How about 69% completion with 101.6 rating?
