You need an offense for that. Shannahan's offense is not what you looking for. With a drop back QB his offense sucks, with a running Qb his offense sucks. His only decent season was running read option. Any season he ran his own offense, his offense sucked.

Which brings me back to the OL which sucks.
If you look at his college game compared to Cousins he is much better at downfield passing than Kirk while Kirk was better at short and intermediate. Also in reference to Eli manning being a game manager that is a ridiculous statement.

I think we all said the same thing last year, no? why give up the farm for RG3 then two rounds later draft another QB? Unless RG3 was not the guy MS wanted and he was buying insurance with Cousins?

What's the chance Snyder had something to do with RG3 getting picked? Also RG3 was the second best QB according to all the draft boards and media. So the team picks RG3 cause he's the second best QB but they draft a guy, Cousins, whom they think fits better in their system?

Wait, what? I was referring to Eli not being very mobile. He's not known as a running QB like RG3. He's known for managing a game and sitting in the pocket and delivering the ball, but CAN scramble a little to avoid pressure if need be.

Sigh. Personally I don't think this is Shanahan's offense. It hardly looks like what he ran in Denver. To me that is. Yea the first two years clearly MS style of ball. Last year looked like KS and MS came up with some cocka meme scheme of adding the read option to their system to help RG3 make plays and to help the team win. Now after RG3's injury this year looks like they have tried to move away from the read option plays (maybe due to RG3's injury) and more towards MS's offense. Especially these last two games.

Why would RG3 need help? cause he didn't come to the team until after what June? he didn't have a full season with the coaches to study film, coach him up on reading defenses, and learning their play book. So the easiest thing to do is incorporate what RG3 knows and does well into their offense. It worked. This last year he spend all summer rehabbing. Could he have been at the office studying film with KS all summer? IDK.

If that's RG3, Cousins or Pat White, I just want the best guy out there. Some of you are too wrapped in your emotional investment with RG3. lol.
I just want to win, I don't give a crap who it is. That said; I'm personally convinced that this year with RG3 was more to do with the injury than inability to be a great QB. I think he will be a great QB, and is the future of this franchise. I think Cousins, if he has legit value, will be traded in the off-season to help recap picks. If Cousins garners no more than we paid for him (a 4th round pick), I don't think he goes anywhere.

I don't care who it is; but Cousins one good game and one good throw against Baltimore last year, doesn't make me thing he is suddenly better than the guy who electrified the league a year ago.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

As long as we see a pitch to Josh Morgan that turns in to a pass to Cousins downfield

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Thsibsi all about power, has nothing to do with football. If you didn't want RG3 then do''t draft RG3 real simple. If you are in charge of personel which is Shannahan's title then you don't draft RG3, if you didn't want RG3. It's about power. Shanny coaching sucks, defense sucks special teams suck. None of that has to do with RG3.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

You have a QB with a strong arm and good intelligence and the only play you can think of is an option play? Mike your son is not a very good offensive coordinator. We are 3-9 because this is the same system run in houston. NFL has passed that system good bye.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Robert just never looked healthy those first few games. I know people will say this and that, but it looked like more than knee brace. Oh, well. All water under the bridge I guess.

Fair enough. I thought you were saying Kirk Cousins and Eli were the same type of player.
