RG3 - Facts and BS - the final 3 weeks

Postby SkinsJock » Mon Dec 09, 2013 3:24 pm

Mike has said that he feels that Robert is 100% but at this time he might sit him for the rest of the season ..

Mike feels that the 24 sacks in the past few games are 'troubling' and he will evaluate playing RG3 before the Falcons game

IF RG3 is held out of the Falcons game then Mike has indicated he will not be playing again in the last 2 games

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

Sounds to me like Cousins will start the remainder of the year. Imagine what will happen if we go 3-0.

If Cousins fails and I hope he doesn't, what will that say about the people that felt Robert was to blame? Our Olinemen minus Williams is like watching matadors.

Wow! That's weird and surprising to me.

Nice of Mike to start RGIII against the Chiefs and 49ers, then pull him out against the 3-10 Falcons in their dome. lol.

Frankly, if Mike is worried about RGIII getting hurt behind our o-line, how about doing us all a favor and just start Grossman for the last three games. I don't really want to see Cousins get hurt either.

+1... I don't want to see Grossman get hurt either. People wished for it now they have it. Reap your rewards.

Me either. Sexy Rexy will probably win these last three games too. :)

And if Cousins performs well and we were to go 3-0?

I'm going to the Falcons' game. I want to see RGIII play. I obviously don't want him to get hurt, but I don't think you can just sit him, either. Let him start, and see how it goes. If we are going down in flames again, then by all means, let others play. This just seems spiteful to me. Especially if RGIII and the Danny really do have a relationship that irritates Shanny.

Cooley on 980 right now is saying that he thinks Griffin will remain the starter, and that this is just his way of saying that if Griffin continues to play poor he'll bench him in games whether or not they are blowouts.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I thought his reasons for possibly sitting Griffin were sound. I don't see it as a big "F U" to Snyder, but more or less admitting that the season is over and you need to protect your investment at all costs. He explained that there were too many sacks in the previous 5 games, and that Griffin is just getting killed each game. It makes sense to bench him now.

Perhaps this is a final "F you" to Snyder on his way out.........

Agreed - I really think that he'll play him against the Falcons - who knows what happens from there on


this whole scene is troubling …
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
