Re: Redskins vs. Falcons Post-Game Thread

Also, we were moronic to think one player was going to turn this sorry state of affairs in our favor over the medium to long term, without much of a supporting cast. I say we because after last season I fell for the delusion myself. Thinking about what has transpired since 2000-2001 the greatest blunder was Snyder firing Marty, when he got the whole team on board with his system. My god they won with Stephen and Tony Banks at QB and other Norv retreads. Spurrier's system was a disaster as he didn't really tweak it for the pro game and Coach coming back gave us some playoff appearances, but no real shot at the title. Also, a couple of his drafts were totally whack. Zorn was well Zorn, a deer in headlights, and Shanny just had to bring in his lame ass son. Maybe he can get Kubiak in, if all that happens is that Kyle gets canned. I can't really blame Shanahan when the owner has clearly sided with his meal ticket over the HC yet again.

Re: Redskins vs. Falcons Post-Game Thread

What a game. Completely different offense when Cousins is in there. The play calling was aggressive, too aggressive as I thought Kyle sort of needed to dial it back on the one yard line on that Int. But for a guy that is making his 2nd start and hadn't played in a year, Cousins is just very impressive. That first half was ridiculous. I don't think Cousins is going anywhere. Call me crazy but he's going to push RG3.

Also Rak is playing himself into a new contract. He's been everywhere the last two weeks. Morris? C'mon man! Hold on to the damn ball!

Also MS...kick the XP, play the percentages. I didn't like going for it but I guess he really doesn't give a damn.

Re: Redskins vs. Falcons Post-Game Thread

I thought it was a good game for a 3-11 team. Cousins looked pretty good but needs to work on his decision making. Too many passes being squeezed into dudes with guys all over them and throwing INTs. He throws grown man passes though; shit's a blur.

D-line showed up this game, which was good to see.
Fletcher is still abysmal in coverage.

This game was basically lost due to turnovers.
Also, didn't like the call to go for 2pts instead of going into OT. But it's Shanahan. Whatever.

Re: Redskins vs. Falcons Post-Game Thread

If this season was anything other than the way it was, I would have said go for OT, but I actually liked the call to go for 2. It's been that kind of season, why not just go for it?

7 turnovers is definitely difficult to to get past. Overall, the defense played fairly well with the exception of third down defense which has driven me crazy all season.

Now, let me preface this by saying, RG3 IS THE GUY, but at any point was anyone like, "Wow, RG3 would have made that play!"? Again, this isn't me saying Cousins should be starting, but it's nice to see us have two legitimate options at QB. If he keeps playing like that, we might get first! Reminds me of Andy Dalton a lot...

Re: Redskins vs. Falcons Post-Game Thread

I don't see the reasoning behind trading KC. I doubt we would get anything better than a 3rd at this point.
Teams need two quality QB's, just look at GB.

Kirk managed the game pretty well and had some nice throws, as soon as ATL started planning for the rollout he was only marginal.

Interesting that Mike Nolan was coaching ATL's D. We've had some bad games with him.

I believe his contract goes up significantly after this next season, making him considerably less attractive to trade. I would trade him this off-season, especially if there's a new HC. And then just draft another young QB
