The end.

(Moral of the story is: these what if theories are ridiculous. yay)
I just LOL'd at my desk. A sample of his lobster skin......classic!

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

All of this nonsense could have easily been avoided. All Shanny had to say was that he was going with Cousins because we've been losing and he is hoping that Cousins can spark the team. There would have been no harm in Shanny admitting that RGIII has not played well; that much is obvious. So, the stated reason for sitting RGIII would be poor performance.

Shanny did not need make RGIII inactive. He could have simply resolved not to play him for the rest of the season and kept that decision to himself.

I suppose that plan was just too simple to suit the devious career machinations of all the parties involved. It's this last part that makes the Redskins franchise a joke.

Exactly right. The explained reasons by the coaching staff is why the Skins continue to be one of the worst franchises in the NFL

I think he didn't want to further hurt his pride and ego, although de-activating him pretty much does that. The Shanahan's like Cousins, had a 1st round grade on him and probably think he's the better fit to run their offense. If Cousins plays well, he's not going anywhere and RG3 might be the one that's dangled out there as trade bait.

I agree with you. Sometimes I think MS is terrible at interviews and the other half I think he's trying to give so much disinformation to not give his opponent any info.

Also keep in mind this team was, supposedly and I don't know how the math works out, but still in the game for the play offs (even though most of us would say they don't look like a play off team). So I guess it was smart to continue playing RG3 up until the team was completely eliminated from the play off picture. Which is what happened last weekend. Now Cousins starts.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

We were officially out of the playoff race after the Giants game. Should have started Cousins last week using that logic.

OMG. Ok, I'm thinking along those lines, but god you can't say that here. These fans who believe he's the next god will eat you alive. tisk, tisk.

As I said before, I think the only reason we had success last year was the coaches changed the offense to be more like Baylor's just for RG3 so he was not called a bust his first year. Now they want to get back to their style of offense (which quite a few fans here should be happy cause they kept saying the college read option was going to go no where). Maybe Cousins fits MS's style of offense better then RG3 does but they were hoping RG3 and all his abilities would pan out for them. < and he still might but they have to do some developing in the off season and hope he's a quick study.

Maybe, I thought I had heard that after the Chiefs game the local news said "now the team is completely eliminated." Could be wrong though.

Doesn't matter but I did not see it mentioned...Royster on IR now and we promoted Jawan Jamison to the 53.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Does McNabb realize everytime he opens his mouth he's embarrassing himself? He acts like he was a victim of the Shanahans and tries every opportunity to get his digs in when in reality he sucked. The Eagles knew it and dumped him, the Skins were stupid to pick him up but did and learned how much he sucked. He moves on to the Vikings and continued to suck.

I'm embarrassed for him for opening his mouth and acting like his whole situation was something other then HE SUCKED.

RG3 is the new McNabb same situation. Kyle and Mike blaming the QB for their lack of offense, defense or special teams. McNabb sucked but he was still better than Grossman.
