Biggest problem is RGIII lack of maturity. He was the one that forced the issue last year in the playoffs, then lets his Dad blast the coach all offseason for playing him. So if Elway was hobbled in the playoffs and trying to gut out a win (in a close game that Was was controlling) you would be fine with the backup who got no reps coming in? Really, so if Manning is struggling in the playoffs bring in Brosweiler even though the game is close? As a coach your hand is kind of forced.
Compare apples to apples and take those Shanny glasses off. RG3 was a rookie last season...so are you really comparing Rooke RG3 to established legends as Elway and Manning? Talking about bringing in Osweiler to replace a LEGEND? Stop that nonsense.
Redskins didn't do anything after the 1st quarter in the playoff game last year. Period. You're saying yourself that Washington was "controlling" the game, so someone who actually built the team correctly would have had a viable veteran back up, not having a rookie as your starting QB and a rookie as your back up QB...that's a ****ing joke. RG3's leg was falling off...
And what is this "back up with no reps" are you talking about? Cousins played a full game and played well during the preseason last year...
I can tell... you're the type that will defend Shanny at all costs even it it's worth dumbing yourself down.
