Interestingly, Schefter said that Shanahan wants to sit down with Snyder after the season and express his desire to stay, but only if he has has the power "to start the best players." Shanahan's contract already gives him that power, and Schefter said, to his knowledge, Snyder has never tried to meddle or tell Shanahan who to play. Schefter strongly insinuated that, if he were to stay, Shanahan would have a QB competition. If RGIII won, he'd be the starter. If Cousins won, he'd be the starter. Schefter also indicated that, had Cousins not suffered an injury in the preseason, Shanahan would have started him week 1, since he was more prepared than RGIII, who had missed the offseason. Although RGIII was medically cleared to play, Shanahan had doubts that he was "football ready."

Now we all know that Schefter gets his info directly from Shanahan, and Shanahan wouldnt tell Schefter these things unless he wanted Schefter to report them. Seems pretty obvious to me that Shanahan believes in Cousins more than he believes in RGIII. Ultimately, it seems, whether Shanahan stays or goes will depend on whether or not he beleives more in Shanahan as a coach with Cousins as his QB or an entirely new offensive staff with RGIII at QB.

Personally, I think a Shanahan/Cousins combo gives us a much better chance to win than a RGIII/Briles/Gruden/whoever combo.

Assuming that is true? We should shop RGIII. I wonder what his trade value is.

His "potential" isn't worth the distraction when you've got a very talented NFL QB in Cousins on the roster.
NEWSFLASH: Cousins is not that good. He looked like Matt Cassell. Only mediocre. He reminds me of Rex. Throws too many picks against ATL one of the worse defenses.

You don't like RG3 that's all. Shanahan has done nothing without Robert on the field. he has been here 4 years two without Robert. Remember Beck? that is Cousins. What's the difference. Shanny is dreaming. No one wants Cousins. no needing in arguing with you, you are on some extraness.

I wouldn't say he's rex but is he a franchise qb? I don't think so

This is a big game for kirk , it's the first time he's starting against a team that's in playoff contention, even though Dallas sucks but still

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

I like Schefter as much as the next guy but I feel like I need to take what he says with a grain of salt considering he's one of Shanny's microphones.

IMO KC is Rex-like. He runs hot and then cold. He is prone to throwing picks. Rex does it more with dumb decisions while Cousins does it more with inaccuracy but the results are not dissimilar.

We have seen a total of probably 10 quarters of play from KC in his young career. Im not sure that is enough of a sample size to label him yet,....

Yeah but let's just wait a few more games , maybe these next 2 games he'll show us that he can be less to prone

He was the same in college. Not saying he can't improve but he's always been prone to throwing INTs.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Cousins has to play well against Dallas for me to believe is an option for next year.

The defense he is playing is one of the worst defenses ever. Matt Flynn just threw for four touchdowns, McCown threw for four the week before. I do not see any reason why his performance cannot be close to theirs, unless he is worst than two backups. He doesn't have to throw 4 touchdowns but I expect him to look great. If he looks bad against Dallas I personally do not think he will be the answer. I know it is bad to judge a QB by one game... but against this defense, I believe it is fair.

They have better o-lines and wr's than we do.
People were saying that you could put Peyton Manning on this current team and he would be horrible all season, so we have to take those same things into account when Cousins starts.
Im not saying that Id rather have KC than Griff going forward, just that any qb on this current team is up against it.

Redskins Oline played well against Atlanta outside of the first couple of drives. Dallas has a terrible defensive line just like Atlanta. Also Green Bay lost a couple of their best receivers and the ones that are playing have been injured all year.

I'm not expecting Cousins to throw four touchdown passes, but if he looks shaky or bad at all... I think the talk about trading RG3 because Cousins will be better should stop.

If Kirk Cousins does not beat the Cowboys he is not a franchise QB. Period!!!
