Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

We are a laughing stock right now. Embarrassing especially for a once great organization.

Truth be told I was planning to go to Atlanta for the game but now I am SO glad I didn't go.
Sadly I was talking to a friend earlier today and he thinks that this doesn't even crack the top 5 controversies of the Snyder era.

Agreed. I mean he's still playing behind the same bad offensive line, and we still have the same defense and special teams...

Probably 0-3, but they may squeak out a win against Dallas since their D is just as bad...or worse.

We may be the only franchise doomed to an eternity of qb controversy. I'll never understand it.

I'm not saying others haven't had their share, but even in Doug Williams SB year we had to overcome it. Sonny and Billy, Heath and Gus. It's just crazy enough to make me crazy!

Was heath and Gus really significant though? Lmao although I will say Gus was pretty good at times

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

That's fine if he wants to sell this as 100% about keeping RGIII healthy, but I better not see one triple option, or old school Nebraska style college option next year. Not one play.

The read option out of the pistol where he is moving more vertically and can get down faster should still be limited to less than 5 times a game in short yardage situations.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Finally Goat, some people are warming up to the fact that SHANAHAN FUCKING SUCKS. Even without this situation, one playoff win in 14 years, and a horrid win %age his past 8 seasons, it really makes this inevitable firing (for junior as well) the best thing that could have happened to us. I think if we lay a complete stinker this week, he will be gone on Monday. If there is a little bit of effort, he might close out the season.

GOOD FUCKING RIDDANCE, SHANAFAIL.

I could care less about all the picks given up for any QB or the amount of money being tossed to either.
Ditto. Let's see what we really have in Cousins these last 3 games. If he can't torch these shitty Defenses, then we're really screwed

That's the problem though. If he DOES do well, then that opens up a whole new can of worms. But what does it really show though? Playing teams with lousy to awful defenses, when you're 3-10 and there's absolutely no pressure, is it really a good indicator of how good he is?

This organization is royally messed up no matter what happens. The embarassing thing is they've become a national punch line now. So much for the circus being in Tampa Bay or Miami, etc.

RG3 played two of those lousy defenses. We didn't crack 20 points in either game.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I'm not worried about KC playing well, its the other 52. This team has quit, Josh Morgan literally walked an out route Sunday, the quitters may hamper Our American Cousin from prospering. Plus when we're down by 30+ at halftime the D will be licking chops.

Atlanta is worse then I thought so maybe don't count them but RG3 played against both division rivals and lost with the same offense Cousins will have and the same lame Redskins defense Cousins will have. If Cousins comes out and moves the ball well and wins then the team will have a can of worms.

Personally I think people put too much into one player. There have been many of QB's that have been picked that have turned out to be busts and the Redskins have seen their fair share. If nothing else everyone should be cautious in regards to a QB that had one good year (with a converted offense to enhance RG3's abilities) and one bad year (due to injury). Any other position and we fans would be calling RG3 50/50 and saying we have to wait until yr 3 to decide what we got in him. But for what ever reason everyone is 110% in on RG3, even after hearing what Cooley had to say about RG3's deficiencies. "IF" Cooley is correct... MS or whoever is the next HC has a ton of work with RG3 in the off season, and it usually starts with footwork and back peddling, trying to get him comfortable in a pocket, getting rid of the happy feet, building a mental clock.

We fans want a Payton Manning, someone who will manage the game, someone who will look solid going through his progressions and delivering the ball, someone who reads the defenses well and readjusts his protection or changes to a better play.

In reality Cousins is light years ahead of RG3 if he has half of these down. I heard on the radio yesterday an ex player say that in last weeks game RG3 ran on play 2 or 3 times and each time he got sacked, one from the RT the other from up the center. Cousins came in and used the same play and for the first time a QB was able to get to the 3rd option and deliver a strike. Not to mention Cousins rotated his protection to the correct side and it picked up the rusher. The speaker said he has not seen RG3 get past the 1st read. If the first read is not available he takes off running. (my opinion>) Now that might be out of habit, meaning if all RG3 was asked to do in college was take the snap and throw to his first option or run then thats all he's going to know how to do. Maybe thats why Briles offense is supposedly so fast, line up, take the snap, look at the first option, or run. Line up do it again. IDK.

I agree with you. Sometimes it just takes one person. Maybe this offense rallies around Cousins for 3 games and plays well. Well, maybe not the OL, but the rest. lol.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I think there are two groups of people in favor of this when it all comes down to it.


A) Fans that want to baby Robert and treat him as if he's some porcelain vase.



B) Fans that wanted RGIII benched due to this play and wanted to see Kirk in.
