He gets the starting nod.
You have to think this was the plan along. As Spence pointed out, Cousins took,all first team snaps all week. Plus, Garçon let the cat out of the bag early in the week. They knew.
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora has given the Redskins' rookie sensation a new title –- one typically reserved for knights.
"His name is Sir," said Umenyiora, who was born in London. "His name is Sir Robert Griffin. That is what I refer to him now.
It will be interesting to see how much our offense changes with cousins starting.
It will be good to see what he can do. I sure hope the rest of the team brings their A Game because they are going to need it. Limit the penalties and turnovers and we got a shot.
Not that different from the rest of the year.
It will be interesting to see if Garcon is his favorite target.
if we are going to win this i think it will be far have to be lower scoring and our D is going to have to help out with some turnovers and maybe a score of their own . . . while i think Cousins has potential, he is no where near as fleet of foot as RGIII, so our o-line, that doesn't normally pass block worth a darn is going to have to really step up this week . . . and we will find out without a doubt this week if it is RGIII making all of this work . . . or if maybe we are better at the other positions that we (I) think . . . Alfred Morris' biggest challenge too . . . will be interesting for sure . . . but we need it . . . LETS GO REDSKINS!!!
Kudos to Kirk Cousins. Redskins were 2.5 point favorites. When RGII was announced out, they became 2.5 underdogs. Disrespect. Way to show them you rookie fourth rounder!
Got to like the turnovers. I would never have guess 38 points!!
After many seasons of 18 point games I could not be happier.
The one that pissed me off the most was the one in Dallas that we lost 7 to 6 in the last minutes. Not that I thought they would win but I was hoping.
Shanny has something going now.
Cousins 329 passing yards today are tops for the Skins this year.
Cousins passer rating of 104.4.
28 points in the second half is the most points by the Redskins in one half of football this year.
On six drives in the second half, the Redskins scored 4 touchdowns, punted once and kneeled down in the red zone.
