Give him the full week with the starters, give him the reps ( in practice) and then give him a few games as well. I don't expect him to light the world on fire though....

Certainly not with his play.

Ok.
Again though...it's not about him getting more reps. He's had 13 weeks of reps. He's coming off a major surgery, behind a shitty line and he's not playing well. All reasons to sit him down. MS isn't being 100% truthful but I really don't care. He's not my wife and I don't need him to tell me the truth.

Yeah why not protect Eli for next year? It's clearly a lost season for them. Why not get the young guy some experience?

I agree with sitting RG3. Don't take any chances at this point. Make sure he has a full offseason. Getting snaps in an offense that won't be here next year won't hurt RG3. It will give us potential trade power on Cousins if he plays well.

Of course not. He's played terrible all year. But he's a two time SB winner and therefore he's not getting sat down.

Here's the obvious posturing that Shanahan is doing: none of the final three opponents on the schedule are going to get anywhere near Griffin. Dallas might try to blitz him, maybe. But Atlanta and New York can't get after the passer at all. Griffin is as safe as anyone from injury these last three weeks. Shanahan's argument is a red herring.

Not sure how you expect him to get better on the bench.

The Cowboys didn't bench Aikman his rookie year when they went 1-15 and he took an absolute beating.

Young QBs that were drafted high are rarely playing under the best of circumstances. But they need to play to improve.

And they traded a crap ton of picks to get him. Just not as much as we dealt for Griffin. Earned on arrival.

RG3 is going to be more ready for the next coach if he stays and plays. Sitting on the bench won't do anything for his development.

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.

Right and we can argue over whether he should have known better but ultimately he did hire him and has to own that. That doesn't make him responsible for the crap that Shanny is pulling. Be mad at DS for hiring MS. But hold back enough of that and aim it at MS for he is the one causing the problems currently.

Um...didn't you watch Justin Tuck abuse Polumbus and Chester? Everyone can rush that passer against our line.

He did have major knee surgery last year, and I'm not sure why that's relevant here. It was probably a factor in the Week 1 start/sit decision. But he's almost a full year out. We're now in the "point" period of the 99.**% healthy/recovered. You can round up to 100%.

He's taken a billion hits this season so I'm sure Griffin isn't healthy at this point between all the ailments one gets from playing through a football season. Resting him will heal those ailments, sure, but it doesn't really matter if he rests now or in three weeks. When he returns for March in OTA's he's going to be 100%. If he gets an injury in the next three weeks, that's really unfortunate, but the season isn't over yet and they can't just play it like he is.

Cousins could tear something too if he's playing, and then you lose whatever trade value you had on him.
