We are the Carlito's Way of the NFL... Just when we think we are out of the Cesspool Circus, we are pulled right back in...

Calling it anything other than a power play is just naive.
This basically sums up how I feel about this move. It might actually happen, but if it does, the only thing it does is fuel my dislike for MS even more.

I dont think any big names will want to come here because they likely dont need the $ and they know it will end badly with their reputation in tatters. That leaves 2nd tier guys who IMO will come in for a payday, take their chances and see what happens. Maybe it will work out but more than likely it wont. In the end this organization is too screwed up for for any coach to come in and make a difference.

Unfortunately, I agree with everything you said... I don't think there is an answer at this point... At least this time of year, I always have Duke basketball to transition to, which does a good job of taking the pain away...

Re: How would you feel if Shanahan benches RGIII?

Have the Atlanta Falcons pulled Matt Ryan? No.
Have the Pittsburgh Steelers pulled Ben Roethlisberger? No.
Have the Buffalo Bills pulled EJ Manuel? No.
Have the NY Giants pulled Eli Manning? No.
Did the Minnesota Vikings pull Adrian Peterson? No.





SO why in the fuck should the Redskins pull RGIII even though the season is lost? To protect him? Well fuck, why not just sit him out the next year as well. May get hurt you know. /facepalm

This kid needs all the work he can get.

Absolutely. He needed to sit in weeks 1-4 not now. He needs work and live game action is the best experience he can get.

I don't agree with the..."he needs more reps" BS. We're 13 games in and RG3 has had a couple good games. Don't ya think he'd still be on the field if he was playing well?? Plus Ben R. and Ryan aren't playing as bad as RG3 is.

So Eli should be benched for Nassib, no?

No one has really laid out a single thing other than that he had dinner with the team's QB. Having dinner with Rob caused Shanny to shit the bed for 4 straight years basically? I don't buy that at all. That's crap.
He hired him!! Another failed hire by Dan.

Re: How would you feel if Shanahan benches RGIII?

the stated reason for possibly benching rg3 has to do with his health and coming off major reconstructive knee surgery. not his performance ... so i dont think the ryan or big ben or eli comparisons are the same situations as none of them have had the offseason rg3 did.

we are talking about a 23 year old with 2 reconstrucitve knee surgeries to the same knee in the past 3 years.

why wouldnt you sit him for the next meaningless 3 games with a lame duck coach and an Offensive scheme that will not be here next year behind a crappy ass O line?

i understand people are pissed at mike im not happy with him either, but taking emotion out of the decision, you have to agree benching rg3 for the last meaningless games is the best thing to do.

the is zero point for him to continue to play for this lame duck coaching staff.

Twice this year opposing players said he shouldnt be playing after playing us.

you can hate mike but agree the best thing is to sit him and protect him.

why have rg3 play any more snaps for a shanny team and game plan?

My bad for one qtr he checked down to his hot read. I'm not writing the guy off its just that RGIII pissed me off with all his media crap.

Eli has earned the right to stay on the field.

Re: How would you feel if Shanahan benches RGIII?

A 2nd year QB that had no preseason doesn't need work?

Ok.
