Stupid.. GD stupid.. Cousins can win .. We've seen it.. Winning 14-13 at halftime a ball control attack would have crushed this team. RGIII was unable to even plant his foot to throw the ball. What a horrible end to a great season.
I don't know if it was RGIII or Shanahan, but someone even Synder should have pulled the plug on RGIII at halftime
Terrible Play Calling. Morris had 8 carries first 2 drives and only 8 carries for the rest of the game. If they had ran him like they did in Dallas we would be headed to Atlanta.. Dominate right side of the line and hardly went back to it.... That first drive no read option they were pitches and straight runs. THey never proved they could stop him. I would have run it 3 times both times we had the call inside the 10 until they proved they could stop me. Plus after they score we come out and pass there was still 7 minutes on the clock. Gibbs and others would have said Hogs hitch it up we are going to run it down their throats..
Big Concern for Next year will be, Have teams figured out RGIII passing game....100 yards last two games. and. Can he stay healthy. Missing deep balls and taking to long to release on deep balls. Lets pray for his health and growth of Kyle... He was a sitting duck.
That is why Cousins should have come in sooner so they could run the ball and use the stretch plays and have him as a sitting duck as RGIII was since they did not want to roll him out it seemed....
We had them were we wanted them and let them back in by not running the ball down their throats.. Team had an incredible Effort even RGIII blame goes to the coaches on this one...

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!!
I didn't necessarily think they should have pulled him, but offering him more support by going heavy with the run would have been effective IMO. I was pretty po'd when they tried to throw on 1st down from their own 5. They were running great, they just didn't stick with it. Probably would have allowed us to win this one. On the other hand, if they did win with RG3 in, he probably would have been injured next week or we would have been eliminated in Atlanta by starting Cousins. In reality, and with a little luck he'll be fine to start next season, which is where we are. Past tense what ifs no longer concern me, I'm fine with where we are.
On the other hand, he is paid $7 million dollars to face tough decision and the second guessing that comes with them, so I am not going to be worrying too awful much about Coach Shanahan in that sense.
Again, to me the entire point is that while it could have gone either way in hindsight, there is an inconsistency here there seems perfectly legitimate to point out: RGIII looked considerably BETTER before the Cleveland game than he did in the second half today ...and he was benched and Cousins given a chance to show what he could do.
Why was a totally different approach taken this time in this must win game?
Cousins should have started the third..
But the Defense had 4 hard nosed kick but series that kept it ctlose.
