Should Cousins start vs Philly?

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

some people might want rg3 to rest another week given we are playing a 4-10 philly team


NOBODY with ANY football sense would prepare for next Sunday's game with anything but respect for a division rival that will be trying their best to win ...

are you kidding me? If we don't put the best players and come up with a very good game plan, we will NOT win this game


I know you are just posting a scenario but you seem to always be looking for something negative ...

we are witnessing some magic here - this is not a really good team just yet and there's a chance we could be the NFC East champs .. EVEN if we pull off 2 more victories we still have a lot of areas of concern that need to be addressed before we start next season ....

The FACT IS - we are playing well together at the right time - ENJOY it for what it is


no matter what happens the next 2 games - we have shown that we are on the right track

this has been an incredibly rewarding series of games


when did we last beat the eagles, cowboys and giants in successive weeks and then take on 2 teams that we were not mean't to beat and take them both down as well

ENJOY THE RIDE :lol:
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in the near future, the problems here are complex - unfortunately with Dan Snyder, it is what it is

No, RGIII has rested enough to heal a LCL sprain, he's the better player, he plays.

What I'd like to know is: what are the odds we trade Cousins this offseason? He played extremely well in limited duty, definitely looks like a starting caliber NFL QB...

Schawb, Cassell, etc. show that young QB's can bring in big returns.

good question - just a few weeks too early - you might be interested in Cousins' trade value - I could not care less

Cousins is just further proof of how good a job this FO is doing in getting this franchise back on track

GREAT JOB :twisted:


now we need to focus on getting ready for this game this week - that is all that we're really interested in

Besides, I would worry that RGIII would be rusty with having 2 weeks off.

The game against DAL could end up being the biggest game of the season.............


our game with the boyz is looking pretty big (if) we take care of buisness in philthy. so if rg3 is ready to play then you play him.
Thanks for 10 years .

I like Cousins...a lot...but RGIII is going to start if he's cleared. No questions asked. I can't fathom why people are talking about using Cousins as trade fodder. You do realize that it's a very real possibility that Griffin won't stay healthy for all 16 games in a season?

ALL this team will be doing is trying their best to win this next game game

the fans can look ahead and fantasize ...


we'll need to play very well - the eagles will be super motivated to win this game

this game is Philly's last home game this season - they will be tough to beat ...


we will need to play well and we'll need our best players

No, as much as i respect and admire Cousins you need to get G3 back in there to get back into the groove so the 'magic' works - the little intangibles that are the difference.
I have always been a big Cousins guy, he could start for most teams in the NFL. But he has only 1 game under his belt and the playbook is very limited for him. LittleShanny keep running the same basic play over and over and he let Cousins' arm make the play. Another team will have that figured out by today and be ready for him.
We need to get G3 back in there and just rip somebody up so's they are hittin on all 8 cylinders again.

If RGIII is healthy, he plays.

PERIOD.

If RGIII is still at risk, Captain Kirk starts..

PERIOD.

My prediction? RGIII leads our team into victory!

Cousins could be Mara-BAIT. He will want him to back-up Eli.

Perfect way to "get back" at Mara.....? NO WAY....!!!

If the price is right..? STILL ----NO WAY. Not to a division rival

KC is the better pocket passer, anyway, and this is a passing league. What makes RG3 so dangerous is his dual threat ability. If he's not 100% it's just not worth putting him out there unless it's a must win game against a good team.


No, he isn't. RGIII is the better pocket, on the designed move, scramble and otherwise, passer.

This what makes RGIII damn near unstoppable, and incredibly dangerous. But without it, he's still more dangerous than Kirk. Coincidentally, that is why one of them is the starter and the other isn't.


Disagree. Saw both play quite a bit in college. RGIII has better arm strength but that's about it. Cousins has better touch and better accuracy. Also more decisive in the pocket. RGIII is the better all-around player, obviously.

5 weeks ago the team was getting ready for evaluations for next season. NO GAME IS A WALK IN THE PARK for the Skins, much less a divisional rival looking for something positive to carry them til draft day....
RG3 was in team warm ups yesterday, get him ready for the beagles game. Kirk is very good, but he is the back up.
