I dont think anybody is saying Griff is having a great year. I think what most people are questioning is the timing by Shanahan. This is being turned into a Cousins vs Griff thing. Imo it is Shanny trying to win and save his job (playing Griff vs Seattle, playing Griff in week one, playing Griff through his season of struggles), vs Shanny saying FU to Snyder and Griff on his way out. There is just no way that Shanny is trying to protect Griffs future. No way. If that was the case you dont start him in week one. You dont leave him in a game with one leg.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Shananigans is banking on Cousins playing well against the two worst defensive teams in football.
If KC plays well, He can skip town with the fan and media focus on the QB controversy and not his failed tenure in DC.

This is not about RG3, KC or the Redskins organization.
Mike is trying to manipulate his way out of a bad situation.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I voted not sure on the poll. I understand both sides of the argument. I don't disagree with pulling him (I do however, disagree with the motives behind it) but I can completely understand and support the idea of him finishing the season.

At this point I think I'm just apathetic and I'm like... Meh.

What I'll say about the film is this: early in the year, it was very easy to tell what Griffin is struggling with and what he was doing well. As the season has gone on, it's gotten far more ambiguous. Some of the struggles in recent weeks is the result of some horrific offensive design. Others is because of declining mechanics. And some weeks, Griffin looks fine and developed and healthy and nothing makes any sense.

There's an element of Griffin needs to play better -- but its gotten buried in a sea of sh-t as the season has gone on. The Redskins offense has done a reverse Tampa Bay this year.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I voted not sure.

With a normal coach I think RG should be starting, he needs all the reps he can get.

But with these scumbags I'm glad he's sitting. Don't need him out there getting killed with sh*tty play calls and our non-existent pass protection.

As long as the Shannys are in town, I'm very happy with RG sitting.

That's just a cover dude. He's wooing Lovie to come in as HC and pick any DC he wants. We'll have a top ten defense next year. The offense will fly with a new OC and a few additions.

Maybe Nick Saban is in Austin interviewing with Texas and Danny wanted to make a pitch first.

We'll probably lose just to add insult to injury.

I'm not fan of the media but this really is a big deal. It's unprecedented for a team to deactivate a starting player, no less their franchise QB, for the sake of 'protecting him'. It's nothing less than a spectacle. This season can't end soon enough. This may be the first Redskin game since the Pettibon year that I may voluntarily miss a game. Truth be told I was planning to go to Atlanta for the game but now I am SO glad I didn't go.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

After listening to the presser today, I'm okay with shutting him down. We're not playing for anything right now (Pride left 3 weeks ago...). An injury to RGIII would be exponentially worse than missing game time reps in these last 3 weeks. I think if Shanny were doing a "F*ck you!" to the Redskins (Snyder) then I think he would actually leave RGIII out there and not give a crap if he got hurt. If the organization truly believes that RGIII is the future then why chance it all on three meaningless games? This season is totally gone for RGIII. I kind of wonder though why not sit him against the Chiefs, but whatever. I highly doubt this "benching" is going to have any long term psychological consequences for him.

You're a braver man than I. I lost on the first Dallas game already.
