If we could get a trade like Matt Schaub to the Texans would you do it? Maybe two 2nds and a 4th (A bump from 32 to __ spot that needs the QB is too much ).
I think it's in our best interest to wait another year, drop Grossman, get another development pick 4-6 round range and see what happens, so I'm mostly playing devils advocate. If Shanny feels comfortable with a new guy next year, I'd be fine with him getting some solid value from KC.

I agree with you. Cousins is proving to be a very capable backup. Every team needs a good or great backup QB if it wants to keep winning when the starter is out. Cousins is directly responsible for two critical wins. I would only part with him if the offer is simply too good to refuse, such as two very high draft picks. Until RG3 proves he can avoid big hits on a consistent basis, the Redskins should keep Cousins at least until the end of next year.
As a Skins fan, I would be hesitant to give up even a good backup QB after having such poor QB play for so many years. Not having a quality QB has wasted some very good Redskins defenses over the years.
RG3 still sounds really irritated that he was sat last week. If he was hindered, I think he is man enough to get over it by now. Sorry but I trust RG3, not 2 doctors on Mike's payroll you cant name.
He was back at full practice only 8 days after the injury. Fast healer, or was he simply held back in a knee jerk reaction to seeing the nasty looking leg whip on Ngatas back. I am thinking it was the latter, and thus the doctor was needed to make the call so there was no heat on Mike in what I see would have been a scrutinized move had we lost the game.

A couple other notes:
1) I believe that we'd need to trade Cousins sometime before the trade deadline of 2014. After that, he'd be on the last year of his rookie contract and the value we'd get back might drop.
2) An ideal long-term backup to RG3 is slightly older QB who had his shot to start and is content to be a mentor/2-game-per-year fill in for the next several years. In some ways, Rex is the perfect backup if he can perform at a high level.

That being said, I very seriously doubt we will be offered two 2nds or a 1st so it's kind of a mull point. I don't think we will be offered anything that is even close to the value he represents to this team and I'm very certain we will need him at some point next year.

I agree. Until Cousins has a larger sample size, I wouldn't expect a team to be willing to give up a high draft pick(s) for him which is fine with me.
According to cbssports.com Josh Katzowitz Barring a setback, RG3 to start Sunday
It will probably be a game time decision to throw the eagles off on who to prepare for more.
