Undefeated at 4-0? Cousins putting up elite numbers?



Actually I'd expect best case scenario we do go 3-1, Cousins looks great like he did against Cleveland. If RG3 isn't 100%, let Cousins start longer. After last season nobody is still starting Cousins over a healthy RG3. So what's the problem?

More realistically, we go 1-2 or 2-1. We don't risk further injury to RG3. We aren't talking now about tanking the season, just getting to 2-2 or 3-1 til we can get RG3 back.

I know you're smarter than that "controversy" thinking SS, just laughing at the idea put out there that Shanny would be against Cousins emerging as a bona-fide starting QB, or us going undefeated. Nobody could be that stupid.

Imagines Belichick thinking "Damn better hold back playcalling with this 6th rounder Brady, can't make a controversy with him and Bledsoe". Or Vermiel thinking "All this winning with Warner is so bad! What we will do when Trent Green comes back?" I don't think it would happen, but seriously if Cousins suddenly became the next Tom Brady, what the hell would be our problem?

The season may be lost so he may figure on just calling easy plays and such as to not risk further injury to RG3.
I'm gonna guess you're talking about Howard Eskins' report. A) Dr. Andrews' never said to sit him until after the bye week and B) That Cousins stuff is also untrue

But, believe what you want

That would be the very definition of a good problem. No way KC puts up the HOF numbers it would take to convince anyone to sit RGIII. And no way MS makes the decision in that way. That's just a wackadoodle theory.

The only number that matters is wins.

I have always respected you and your information that you share on here.

If you say that it is untrue, i believe you. Yes, I was hearing that rumor which appeared to be partly based on the Howard Eskins report, but like I said, i did not make it up. And now I can't find the thread where it was first mentioned. It doesn't matter.

The facts are right now we are in real trouble, trouble at HC, trouble at DEF, maybe trouble at QB. It's going to take a lot to sort this out....We very well may end up 0-4, and then maybe we need to start thinking about next year....

Re: Stick a fork in em', they are done!

The way I figure it, if the Giants beat the Eagles, and the Broncos beat the Cowboys, the next time we take the field will be for sole possession of first place. Talk about jumping the gun.

I swear folks read the thread and then come back a few days later saying things like "I read somewhere ..." referring to an earlier post. It's like the thread creates and feeds it own rumors - all of the "We suck and do stupid things" variety of course.

Where's Walt with an M60 when you need him.

I do think RG can be salvaged as a QB, but highly highly highly doubt there's a coach currently on staff to do it. And then you still have a team that's otherwise a mess. Mike has made the team worse than the one he inherited. Way worse on defense. About the same on offense apart from the RO as a new gimmick to the league.

Would really love a coach like Lovie Smith who consistently produced a truly top defense and a disciplined team overall. Find a OC genius to work with RG under Lovie. Let that group rebuild this team.
Head coach 9 years made 3 playoffs and his win % is just over .500 add in playoff games and its .500. With such a good defense it makes them numbers look even worse.
