I'll agree he needs reps but two things I don't now and that is... was truly MS's decisions to bench RG3? and is playing Cousins a last chance to keep his job? or question 3- are we just show casing Cousins for a trade?

Q-1: Could it have been Snyder who called the meeting and said shut him down so he doesn't get hurt? and let MS say whatever to save face.

Q-2: Could there have been an agreement between DS, Allen, and MS that if he can show it's not the scheme and Cousins plays well then DS will give him the final year to fix this?

Q-3: or was MS ordered to play Cousins to show case him for trade bait?

Some of these questions might answer why MS said RG3 needed the reps then a week later said they were going to protect him and bench him.

Also the field is atrocious. I think it was worse then last year final game which damaged RG3's knee the most and they are expecting more snow this Sat which will not help the field unless they have a tarp on it.
Some people like to visit the assumption room around here, but I've gotta say you're taking up residency in assumption city. Wow.

I hope to heck though that if they decide to keep MS then they gotta, gotta, gotta fire Haslett and Burns and bring in a decent DC (not Morris) and a decent Special Teams Coordinator.

RG3 does not play special teams or defense. As soon as the Redskins get down by double digits, it's gonna get ugly. I saw Kirk's quarter Sunday, offensive line looks the same. He took a beating. Kirk is not Tebow.

If cousins plays well it will be because the Skins played the Falcons (29th ranked D), The Giants (21st ranked D), and the Cowboys... possibly the Worst defense ever. If he actually was concerned for RG3 or wanted to give Cousins a chance he would have benched him against KC. Except Shanahan knows KC would kill Cousins too so he would look like an idiot, which in my opinion, he already does.

I think this was well calculated move by Shanahan for future coaching jobs for him or his son.

SBXVII, Shannahan brought in RG3 and made the trade. If RG3 is a bust then Shannhan must go because he perpetrated that draft pick fiasco. Either way Shanny's record is poor.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

This is like the Middle Ages debate about how many angels can stand on the point of a pin.

Who gives a damn about the true reasons why Shanahan shut down RGIII? He and his entire coaching staff will soon be gone. That's what is important.

I can hardly wait to wave bye-bye to them so I can start bitching about the new guy and his staff.

I thought the rationale Shanny said in his presser was that he didn't want RG3 getting hurt. And some people agree with that, I think. (I'm torn, sure playing in the NFL any regular position means getting blasted, but reps would be good for RG3.)
Reps don't mean anything if you are just repeating bad mechanics. Get him with a QB coach and get his mechanics straightened out before next season.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

From Profootballtalk.com:

"Last night’s NFL Network pregame show included a lively discussion regarding the still-unfolding situation in Washington.

Former Cowboys teammates Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders argued about the treatment Robert Griffin III has received in Washington."

I am so glad I missed this.

ELi nor Peyton would have been treated this way. Believe me Eli had a more horrid start to his career than RG3 .

Eli has been worse THIS YEAR than RG3. Guy has won the Super Bowl twice and he's not as good as the guy Shanahan just sat.

I don't argue the poor record, but just because MS is the HC and RG3 was drafted does not mean RG3 was MS's guy and he wanted him and we all should blame MS for picking RG3.

WE all have seen in the past and heard years later that Snyder wanted a specific player or Cerrato wanted a specific player and the HC didn't want them. I'd believe you had these things not happened before. Then the rumor that Cousins was drafted because MS really wanted Cousins.

If RG3 was truly MS's guy and the face of the Franchise then there was no need to draft Cousins or any QB so high after RG3. We could have picked up a 6th rounder or 7th rounder to ride the bench or hold a clip board. The only fiasco I see is a possible QB controversy if Cousins plays well in these last 3 games. The problem is Snyder probably does not want to fire MS and pay him 7 mill as well as pay another coach 7 mill.

Also do any of the other coaches get the same treatment in regards to getting paid even if they are fired? I doubt DS wants to pay this whole coaching staff if he fires them and another coaching staff to do the job. It's easy for us fans to say "Fire Shanahan" but that's because it's not coming out of our pockets.
