It makes some sense to let Cousins play, you just can't spin it as something you do for Griffin's benefit. The team might be better in the short-term without Griffin trying to play through his struggles. But there's no question it hurts the team long term to sit him.

The person making the decision has no long term future, and only has a short term future. You can put two and two together.

Yeah, I don't really understand why more people don't get this. There are a finite number of live game reps a young NFL player gets and all of them are valuable, even the bad ones.

Right now we are averaging 69 offensive plays per game. That's 207 more snaps of live action that Griffin isn't getting. That's 207 times seeing a live defense, seeing a blitzer, reacting to a coverage, reading a defense, etc that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else. By opening day next year, Griffin will be 8 games (4 regular season/4 preseason) games behind his 2012 rookie peers.

No matter how you try to look at it, this isn't a good thing for his long term development. This is a final F-U from Shanahan to Griffin, Snyder and Redskins fans. How people aren't getting that is pretty baffling to me.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I simply don't agree its the right decision. Coach the kid. Work on the gameplan to focus on what he needs to improve. What does he learn on the sideline in 3 games? Not much. It appears his biggest issue right now is his confidence. Coach him and put him in a position to build back the confidence.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Is it true that Snyder was the impetus behind the trade that landed RGIII?

If so, that explains alot.

Shanny would have shot that down easily if he wasn't on board.

I evaluate the quarterbacks every year, and I do have confidence in John Beck. He was by far my No. 1 guy. I think the world of him.”

Shanahan has won one playoff victory in 14 years. Jesus fucking christ can we move on from this overrated self absorbed know it all? He fucking sucks now, and just cause he got lucky drafting running backs in the 6th and 7th round, everyone thinks he is a genius. If he was such a fucking genius, then why risk losing a stud like TD and ALF by letting 31 teams have them up for grabs for 6 straight rounds? He rode Elway to two superbowls, and after he retired, NOTHING. NOTHING, no postseason success, not even an AFC divisional game. Why the fuck is it so hard to see that this guy fucking sucks?
In fairness Elway did the same thing. He struck out until Shanny came along. Looking at the winning percentages without each other though Shanny benefited more from Elway than Elway did with Shanny.

Well I disagree, Shannahan has the last say on acquiring players. If Shannahan didn't go along with it, it would have been a contract dispute. Shannahan is proving to me he takes his power defined for him in his contract seriously.

Shanny is a complete control and power freak. There's just no way he would have let Snyder force a huge decision like that on him. Zero chance.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

if Kirk looks like Brady this weekend ill say fine good move. but if he stinks it up just like rg in this system with the morale so low it lowers his stock and demoralizes our other player. if we were gonna switch to cousins why not just finish with rg anyway and have cousins come out the winner of a training camp battle if they felt like he was the better player. more will come to light after sunday because if kirk kills it out there and we win, now its a whole new monster. i think shanahan wants that. im not sure what to think.

That's not entirely true. I do. So do others.

I only want RGIII to sit long enough for the Shanahans to get out of town so that Kyle won't have any more chances to do something stupid to get him reinjured. That is the bottom line.

When RGIII came out of college, I was most excited about the way he threw the long ball. He was one of the best at that that I've ever seen. Second, his arm strength. Third, his athleticism in terms of his ability to avoid the rush and make a potentially negative play into a positive one. Fourth, his great speed and running ability.

I never viewed him as a runner, per se, except on rollouts and occaisional QB draws or read option plays, just to keep the defense honest.

Here's what has happened to him this year: First of all, he's not fully recovered from his knee injury. Second, he has had to deal with very poor pass protection. Third, his receivers are not getting open on a consistent basis.

Also, he is only in his second year and he is learning to become a pocket passer in the NFL. With his intelligence and drive, I don't know how anyone could doubt his ability to learn his trade very well. I think he will come back strong next season.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I think that we have to be careful about an perceived "success" Kirk will have this weekend. I am willing to bet that the running game makes an appearance this weekend.
