Probably didn't have a field as bad as ours either. But yeah, let's let him keep playing so he can re-injure the knee with 3 meaningless games left to play.

If the field was really an issue they wouldn't have played him last week.

2 of the next 3 games are away anyway.

In the end, that's part of being an NFL QB. When things are good, you're God and get more credit than you should. When it's bad you get dumped on. At some point you're going to get benched and booed, it's just part of the job. If a QB isn't mentally tough enough to deal with it they're not going to last. Either RG3 comes back next year swinging, and learns how to be a QB, or he could go down as Heath Shuler.

See that's where MS is a bold face liar and why I think it's performance based. If he was worried about him getting injured then there's no way you send him out there on that field. Had RG3 played well last week, he'd be taking the field Sun. Obviously MS has no balls to just come out and say the truth.

Good, they all deserve it as well. Every single one of them deserve a swift kick in the ass out the door.

It makes no sense to bench him mfor performance at this point...even if his played earned it. What do you get out of it? We're out of the race. If we miracled up Joe Montana in his prime to QB for us it wouldn't matter. It's play him/coach him/develop him versus sit him. Which helps him (and the org) more?

Because they have a guy on the bench that took all the off season work, played very well in his one start and they want to take a look at him. If he plays well then that helps the organization, whether he's traded or not. That's why.

Because we have a guy ON THE BENCH? So f'n what?

Now we're going to have a GUY ON THE BENCH that we used 4 picks to get that clearly needs to work for us to have a future.

We get nothing by playing Cousins. Nothing. It is a lose-lose situation. He plays "well" and immediately we have some BS controversy even though Rob is the only QB that matters. He has to be good or we're doomed. If his isn't our QB in 1/2/3 years then we're terrible. Even if KC is great he won't be good enough to make up for what Rob is supposed to be. If KC "sucks" then we've pissed away his trade value.

Well, here's another disgruntled player voicing his opinion.

We're "doomed" if RG3 is a bust? I wonder if Chicago thought that when Josh McCown came off the bench to outplay Cutler. Look how well Nick Foles is playing? In other words... every single year in the NFL a lower paid or lower drafted guy outplays the incumbent. That's the nature of professional football.

Also the bolded comments simply make 0 sense. So if Cousins comes in a plays like he did against Cleveland then that's not good enough??? SMH. Who gives a damn about a controversy? I want the best guy on the field.

If it's performance based. He should have sat Haslet down and Buns. He should have benched Plolumbus and benched Lichenstiger and Chester. We have Gettis and Compton. He should have benched London Fletcher. No, he went for Robert because he is showing his power. Believe me if you had've saw the 4th quarter against KC with Cousins at QB.

As I've said before, it's hard to find a coach more responsible for his team's results than Mike Shanahan in DC, because he's had so much control. Along that same line of thought he's the worst coach in football right now.
