Each day it becomes more and more surreal, it's like

the X-Files - "The Truth Is Out There"

a Biblical moment - Pontius Pilate "What is 'truth'?"

a Zen Koan - If Mike tells a lie to protect Kyle, does anyone else hear it?

a retro '70's TV moment - "What you talking about Mikie??"

a commercial - "You won't believe it's not Robert"

Three more weeks of this madness. God help us all.
LMAO. Bravo.....

Yes Rave, next year is thee defining year.
On a side note last year wouldnt count as a strike.....

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I actually think Shanahan did exceptionally well in the conference today. He seemed honest and forthright. He said Dan was 100% behind the decision to bench RGIII. He also admitted he made a mistake for not pulling him from the Seattle game.

To be completely honest, im starting to think there is a chance (although not a overwhelming one) that Shanahan comes back next year.

Don't know if MS stays nor not but he says the decision to bench RG3 was an agreement between Snyder, Allen and himself. All had to be in agreement and if anyone didn't agree he would keep RG3 on the field.

So it doesn't sound like Snyder is pissed that RG3 is being benched. Said 2 years of no preseason work is detrimental to a QB. Said that was the reason for benching RG3 cause RG3 can't afford to get hurt again or worse and miss all offseason a second time.

Any chance, any at all, Snyder, Allen, and Shanahan are all on the same page and not as upset as the media is playing this BS? Any chance we fans are getting all worked up over nothing? and MS comes back next year for his final year? I mean if you know your on the verge of getting fired you don't talk like there might be an extension coming ... right?

Sounds like the powers that be sat down and talked about some stuff. Wonder if MS will get his final year to right this ship or be sent packing.

Yea I got the same feeling. Which is why I kept telling people to stop getting their panties in a bunch. I thought MS did very well in the presser.

He first better repair his relationship with his QB. Why I continue to be a fan of this circus is beyond me.

Of course DS is behind it. It would cost him 7 mill if he wasnnt. He is admitting fault about the Seattle game now just to back up his benching of RG-3. It is all a chess match now between him and Snyder and there is 7 mill on the line.

You're right. I thought about that after I posted.

I'd say next year is going to be a big deal, if he has a down year, we need to start thinking about other options. But a lot of it is going to depend on if we get significant upgrades at certain positions.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

im gonna nit-pic here. i dont know why the article said shanahan was a large reason for the skins getting the cap penalty.

the cap penalty/violation was for the structure of the contract vinny had AH and hall sign so i dont really know why that is put at shanahan's feet. the violation came at the time of signing, which was on DS and vinny's watch.

just nit-picking though.

im looking forward to watching mike's presser once it is up. sounds like he has gone full asshole but im gonna wait to watch and make up my own mind

Look, I want the best product on the field. If it's Cousins then guess what... I want Cousins starting. If its RG3 then I want RG3 starting. I'll admit RG3 has the best "POTENTIAL" but if he's not living up to that potential then I'll take Cousins.
I could care less about all the picks given up for any QB or the amount of money being tossed to either.

How anybody is is beyond me. This is all about money and being fired with or without cause. His contract says he has total control and if Snyder overrides his decision to bench Griff than Shanny will want to walk with his money.
