Come on what does this guy know about football? Shanny obviously only has the best interest of the future of this franchise in mind. That is evident based on the three people left on this board who have offered up intriguing "what if" arguments to shed light on this fact.....

What if Shanny is under a mind control device controlled by Xenu from his space ship and Kyle is secretly his handler and that's why Tom Cruise is always at home games and what if RG3 is a spy meant to sabotage Shanny and he's been throwing games because once Shanny goes full blown lobster the experiment is complete and then Cousins comes in and takes a sample of his lobster skin and Cousins and RG3 hops onto Alfmo's back and rides off into the sunset. Washington DC has been saved from lobster man and his Xenu handler.

The end.

(Moral of the story is: these what if theories are ridiculous. yay)

I also think that if your looking at your sports car in the driveway and your pick up truck and your trying to decide which to drive and you now your route will have you driving on a dirt road with ruts in it and pot holes most of us would probably take the truck just so we wouldn't damage the suspension of the sports car. Prior to last weeks game just about everyone was saying bench RG3 and let him stay healthy and not get hurt especially since the OL sucks so bad. MS said "no RG3 needs all the reps he can get." Which is true, but something changed his mind...maybe DS said bench him so he's healthy next year, maybe it was MS with facing losing his job said let me play Cousins these last 3 games to show you its RG3 and he's not making good decisions.

If MS can prove that then maybe DS keeps MS the final year and lets the coaching staff work all off season with RG3 to develop him and if he still isn't getting it they can start Cousins next year. Worst case scenario Cousins bombs also and MS is fired.
I say bench RGIII until he stops throwing off his back leg. His mechanics have been all screwed up this season.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I went back and watched the Shanny presser and after getting through the gazillion "hows your relationship with the ower" and "where are the leaks coming from" I noticed around the 21 min. mark MS is asked about RG3's feelings and how he's handling it and MS says "as I said we will sit down and make a decision and go from there. We'll sit down with the QB's and decided which direction we want to go in."

This last bit made me wonder if he's referring to sitting down in the off season and deciding if they want to continue with RG3 and the read option type of plays or go in a totally different direction with Cousins. I know you guys will tell me I'm reading too much into it. and perhaps he was referring to after the last game but I thought the question was about RG3 and his feelings and MS says nothing about the feelings and says something close to what I put above.

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.
