Redskins pull RG3 as game, field gets away from them

Robert Griffin III, Tamba Hali AP

The game is out of hand, and the field is a mess.

So it appears the Redskins are going to protect quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Backup Kirk Cousins has entered the game early in the fourth quarter, with the Redskins trailing 45-10.

Griffin was 12-of-26 passing for 164 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. He was also sacked five times, and gained just 29 yards on four rushes.

    It’s ok Robert. Go rest up and prepare for the upcoming Superbowl run in 2014. This offensive line is a complete joke and it’s not fair to have to have something happen thanks to those guys. Kirk, go in there and play well and get your trade value up. We’ll flip you for a first or second in a years time. What an innovative franchise we are. You are all envious. #HTTR

    Kirk cousins should be starting anyway. RGIII sucks. He should give back his signing bonus.

    Well, since Cousins came in early in the fourth, I guess we’ll call him RG 3- 9 3/4.

    Make the PERMANENT change…GO Kirk!

    The Shanahans are gone. Lovie Smith is gonna have a fun offseason.

    Jim Zorn winning percentage = 37%

    shanahan winning percentage = 39%

    Trade him.
    Cousins is your future.

    Cousins is honestly a better QB than RG3.

    RGBench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The only thing sweeter than seeing a troll eat crow all season, is watching him and his favorite team tap out like strawberries before the season is over! Lmao!

    FAIL!

    Weeden starting to look like the better pick

  14. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 8, 2013 3:52 PM

    Cousins is the one they should be protecting.

    Ha ha

    Even Cousins looks uninspired out there. Everyone has played like they’re just waiting for Shanahan to get fired. I don’t normally favor firing a coach during a season but I think they have to fire Shanahan either today or tomorrow just to see if the team shows any kind of life and energy in these last few games with Shanahan gone.

  17. worknman24hours says: Dec 8, 2013 4:04 PM

    Cousins in an entire season too late.

    You could really see the other players even in this defeat step up for the team player Cousins is.

    Too much to ask a guy you sat out for the entire season to come in hot on a really ugly loss like this.

    Still nice to see Cousins get a chance to shine.

    Hope he starts next week.

    He’s probably already in the locker room crying to his daddy!

  19. delakern says: Dec 8, 2013 4:08 PM

    Rg3-13

  20. taintedlombardis says: Dec 8, 2013 4:11 PM

    Luck looked awful today.

  21. taintedlombardis says: Dec 8, 2013 4:12 PM

    Cousins looked worse. He threw 8 balls that could have been potentially picked. RG is to the problem. The roster Shanahan built is.

    I legit can’t tell if logicalvoicesays is kidding or serious, either way it is concerning.

    Adidas is now letting out a collective “GULP!!”

  24. nceaglesfan says: Dec 8, 2013 4:44 PM

    About time they pulled him. His heads to big for a helmet anyway…

  25. randomguy9999 says: Dec 8, 2013 4:51 PM

    Logicalvoice says they are going to the Superbowl next year….

    riiiiiight

  26. coltsreign says: Dec 8, 2013 4:59 PM

    Andrew luck tossed 4 Tds and 300+yards in a loss . RG3 not so much.
    Jason La canfora is reporting griffins coach might be recruited to the skins but he signed an extension with Baylor.

    Just proves his place in the skins organization. Hes vertially a second in command while sham is his puppet.

  27. ironyisadeadscene says: Dec 8, 2013 5:34 PM

    Another first round bust by the skins

  28. pgm8291 says: Dec 8, 2013 7:29 PM

    RGIII is the best thing that ever happened to them. They were right to pull him to protect him – no one else was protecting him. He could do the job of half the team at Baylor in his day, but it’s not possible in the NFL. RGIII WILL turn the team around with the right coach. I hope, for Baylors’ sake, it isn’t Briles. They are poised for big things.

    Kudos RGIII for staying positive and taking the high road when bombarded with such incompetent negativity.
