Re: Gruden Says Start Cousins

Gruden has always been fairly progressive in his offensive mentality as the years go on, but if he's going to be successful in his third stint as a coach, he's going to have to be more comfortable marrying himself to a single qb.

Shanahan had a reputation for being offensively progressive, but I feel like the offense he ran was unique for his time, but also rare in that people around the league didn't try to copy it. Because of that, defenses never really worked hard on stopping a misdirection based offense. Once that changed within the last eight years, I think it became clear that this scheme isn't that progressive, and modern defenses simply aren't as confused by it as they once were. Once teams learned how to blitz into bootlegs to force a throw, that offense got pretty straightforward quickly.

I'd even take Al Saunders back, anything but this crap we're running now. Kyle calls plays to get 4-8 yards at a time.

Re: Gruden Says Start Cousins

As of right now, I know the Redskins would be very interested in Gruden if they decide to make a change. And the feeling appears to be mutual

lol ... b/c good wholesome family competition has been so successful.

I guess Jay and Jon's daddy did NOT kick Goat in the nuts everyday for a year.

Gruden and Allen are close and Gruden loves RG3

Yes, he'll take us to the Super Bowl, with Kirk Cousins!

How can you tell? He loves EVERY man who plays the position of Quarterback.

I think a lot of people want RG3 to be our QB, regardless of how he plays. Who cares if it's RG3 or Cousins? We should all want the best guy out there, regardless of ego, draft status, money...and that goes for ALL positions. I'd love for Gruden to come in here and say..." all jobs are up for grabs, whoever performs, plays"...kind of what Chip Kelly did.

It's obvious Gruden likes both guys. But... if he's hired, RG3 will not have the long leash that the Shanahans have given him.

So just to be clear we are potentially going from a coach that was out of football for one year to another that will haven been out five years... This doesn't compute.

We brought back Joe Gibbs, who retired, was inducted into the HOF and was a NASCAR owner...and he took us back to the playoffs without a QB.

Gruden's break is nothing to worry about.



Hey...the initials J.G....
