Yeah, it's easy to make a decision for a guy when it's not YOUR elbow/leg/etc. that's jacked up.

His demeanor aside, I actually like Cutler's grittiness.


It is our duty to question their manhood. Especially when it is a player from the other team.

Shanahan = douchebag!

I still remember the Donkeys ZBS taking out a Cincinatti Bengal DL on MNF and consequently the other three DL were in the grills of Shanahan and Kubiak. I was really hoping the two douchebag coaches would have been seriously injured.

As for Griffin, it was his decision to keep playing and Shanahan shouldn't be fired. Washington was the inferior team to the Seahags.

I agreed with Troy today.

But that doesn't change the elements of my beliefs in this case. Even Billy the Cheat would get the nod here.. that f*&%ing piece of mushy and rotten dog feces.

I'd be yelling at him to get him out of the game as a fan. If he kept him in and he ended up with injuries that could be career threating I would want him fired. How rare is it to have a franchise QB. What was the name of the last franchise QB in Washington. Rypien? Theismann?

Wasn't it Shanahan that forced Terrel Davis to play despite a migraine that was so bad he was temporarily blind?

That has to have SOMETHING to do with it.

Most of the blame goes on RGIII's shoulders. That said, Mike should have seen that he wasn't himself and put in Cousins. It's not like Cousins is a terrible QB, AND they had the lead.

So he didn't play because he took part in this whole #Cut4Bieber thing? Very Vikinglike.

Cousins easily could have done well for them, but what if he's in at 14-0 and Washington still loses (Seahawks did go on a tear after that point), Shannahan and RG3 are vilified in the media.

Pack 93 had an excellent post - are we calling out Frazier for leaving J. Allen in games, what about Garrett with Bryant, or McCarthy with Nelson's repeated hamstring injuries? How many people were clammoring for this when RG3 beat the hated Cowboys? He was hurt then too and was a shadow of his previous self.

Should they fire him? No, that was the Redskins first division title in years.
Should they blame him for killing this season, possibly the next and hurting the franchise's future? Yes.

After seeing RG III limping around in that run play early in the 4th quarter, it was obvious that he was not the best option to win this game for the Skins. Shanahan should have benched him at that time the latest. Cousins didn't win a playoff game yet, nor did RG III, but Kirk showed to be capable of being a serviceable back-up, and throw passes, something that RG III in his pain didn't get done anymore.

Now, according to recent reports, he suffered at least a partially torn LCL and ACL. If it stays as that, he might be ready for the next season, more likely he'll miss a bunch of next season. Plus his carreer health is not getting better with multiple severe injuries like that.

Anyway, all the best for RG III, I really loved to see him play this season and hopefully he's back as soon as possible.as

Quote:
The NFLPA will not demand a formal investigation of the Washington Redskins' handling of the knee injury suffered by quarterback Robert Griffin III, as is allowed under the sport's collective bargaining agreement.

On Tuesday, the NFLPA made an informal inquiry to the Redskins and their medical staff in response to discrepancies in the reports about how the team dealt with Griffin's injury.
