Lots of rage in DC about leaving RG3 in the game. It's not like he was being effective and just risking injury either, he was awful after he tweaked his knee in the 1st and they left him in to (eventually) get hurt for real. Cousins couldn't have been any worse, so why not put him in for the second half? Maybe they just gave RG3 some of those industrial strength horse painkillers at halftime and he said he could move and they believed him. Hard to watch.
yeah, i hear that. but if he hadn't injured the knee, and instead had won the game with some nifty QBing, people would be praising the move up and down.
he wasnt unable to play, he is their prime QB, first washington playoff game in a while i think, they were hot with him, 7 wins in a row, behind in the game.....so he was left in. i think many coaches would make the same move, and try and call plays that protected him as much as possible and hope for the best.
sure, it sucks, but i dont think by definition it was a bad move when it was made. its easy to question that stuff after the fact.
and as to cousins not being any worse, look what webb did for the vikings. he was horrible. and on top of that, when the team lacks confidence in the QB, they lose spirit and its all downhill from there.
im not trying to be unsympathetic to skins fans. i totally get the rage, id be pissed as hell too. i just think the call was not so egregious, and im not surprised it was made.
