Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

RGIII is our starting QB in 2014. If Shanahan doesn't agree he will be fired. He had an amazing year, and this year as a team was just abysmal. He is our franchise qb.

Now that he is benched, which there are pro's and con's to either side, he is guaranteed to have a full off season to work out and learn the offense and get reps. Next year no more knee brace, more confidence, and a better team with the extra cap money and picks.

I want RGIII for 10 more years, but I want him for 10 more years in a real NFL offense. Pistol read option should be a limited wrinkle, not a base play of the offense. This is the NFL, everyone is an athlete, he won't last long with the big hits he's taking every week.

Per this year, just like every other year since 1991, lets get em next year. Hail!

That Donald Brown quote is awesome, my friends and me still reference it all the time. Peyton is hilarious. If i'm drafting funniest qb its Peyton over RGIII in a landslide.

No, he wasnt. I thought that when I first tuned in. He kept saying the number one, two overall pick. Talking about us, Houston, and Atlanta. He eventually acknowledged his mistake. The premise to his entire rant was that it is a win win for the Redskins next year- Griff healthy and the number one pick in the draft. He went on for a solid five minutes referencing our "first round" pick several times. Lol.

Peyton yelled God damnit Donald Brown in the middle of the game during a play when he wasn't where he was supposed to be, it was awesome. Its gotta be on youtube somewhere.

That is bush league work! How do you have a job discussing football and not know the RGIII trade details. Man, I need to start applying.

Know what sucks about not having a 1st round pick? A lot of mock drafts only do 1 round, so I don't get to see who they predict for the Skins.

Yeah I was shocked. I mean all the talk about the situation in DC and one thing nobody has mentioned is that Shanny is throwing the season away for the first pick....because we dont have one! Lol. Dont you think that somebody in the free world would have thrown that out there? The guy must literally live under a rock.
I hear you about the draft, but as a Skins fan this isnt the first time we have had to google search for "full mock drafts". Lol

I don't think Shanahan lies 100% of the time, I think he manipulates the truth to fit his current situation 100% of the time. Sometimes, he's genuine and forthright. But only when being such fits his immediate agenda.

Jerome bettis actually agrees with mike and says Griffin needs this time to study from the sideline, honestly it does make some sense

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.
