Re: How would you feel if Shanahan benches RGIII?

While I'm curious to see what Cousins can do, Griffin REALLY needs the work to improve his reading defenses from the pocket, and getting the ball out of his hand more quickly. The O-line is terrible at pass protection, but Grif needs to improve on making his reads and getting rid of the ball in under 3 seconds, which would reduce much of the excess punishment he takes.

I guess people were already tuned out by the time Cousins came in last week. Expect more of the same.

Re: How would you feel if Shanahan benches RGIII?

Both QBs are going to take hits and play poorly behind that offensive line. I don't know what it is about some people that just fail to realize how much a poor offensive line affects a QB's game. RG3 and Cousins are not Big Ben, Aaron Rodgers, or any other veteran QB out there that can overcome a poor offensive line. Hell, a poor offensive line is probably one of the reasons why Eli Manning has 16 INTs in 13 games.

Regardless of how you see it, this is a lose-lose situation for every one but Shanahan.

Calling it anything other than a power play is just naive.
What you say may be true but I don't care if Shanny has some devious reason (or a good one, for that matter) for benching RGIII.

What I care about is getting RGIII off the field so that Kyle doesn't have any more opportunities to do something stupid, like running the Triple Option, to get RGIII seriously injured again. I want the new Head Coach to have a healthy RGIII.

How do you know that Dan Snyder doesn't feel the same way I do, knowing that he is going to be starting over after this season and probably fearing, as I do, that another serious injury to RGIII could be the coup de grace to this horrible season?

Fine, let's sit all the starters then if we're concerned about player health.

I don't want to lose the likes of Morris, Garcon, Williams, Orakpo, etc.

Sit 'em all down.

Why did he take Shanahan 5 games and 24 sacks to finally become concerned about RG?

Yeah, the difference was pretty nonexistent...

Is Shanahan going to bench Paul for telling the truth:
Mike Shanahan expresses disappointment over Niles Paul’s critical comments about Redskins’ special teams - The Washington Post

Ha! I appreciated the Christmas-eque reference.

I do sort of find it funny when Shanahan tells Paul not to trash other plays directly after he trashed both the team's kicker and punter.

And tossed the OL under the bus as well.

Better still, let's see if the league will let us forfeit the rest of the season so no one gets hurt. (It isn't as though anyone is particularly enthusiastic about watching this train wreck of a team at this point. We're going to lose out -- everyone knows it.)

OK, in all seriousness, what an incredible mess. I cannot recall a team more in disarray that this year's Redskins. Even the Buttfumble Jets have managed to salvage something of a season. Same with the Meangirls Dolphins. Detroit has about 1/3 of its active roster arrested in the last year (the ones that weren't driving while texting and eating burning pizza and crashing their SUVs), and they can at least occasionally put a watchable product on the field. (And, for all our bitching about Vinny, recall that they had Matt Millen -- the Midwest Vinny -- for a long time. Somehow, they have serious weapons on both sides of the ball.) Look at the Patriots -- the little distraction of Hernandez didn't seem to derail that team (nor has the fact that they have little running game and receivers that no one on ths site has ever heard of). But they have their 10 Ws.

I am f_ing sick of it. Nearly 40 years of being a fan, and I cannot recall being more pessimistic about the franchise.

Shanahan -- don't sit RGIII. Don't act like you give a shit now, as the playcalling (by someone over whom I suspect you have some modicum of influence) hasn't reflected great concern for his safety. Let him play and do something -- anything -- to give him a fighting chance out there. If DY is back this week, that ought to help with protection. But the game of football is going to involve the risk of some "owies" (quoth Zorn). Suck it up. Everyone. Get out there and play with a little anger -- let Atlanta feel a little of the frustration you have to be feeling right now. F_ing man up. All of you.
