Get ready for another day of soap opera like drama from the Redskins. Fox’s Jay Glazer is reporting that people inside the Redskins organization believe Kirk Cousins will get the start this week:
Thinking inside Redskins building today is that Shanahan is going w Cousins unless RG3 is able to convince him otherwise

Considering that the decision to bench or not bench RG3 is largely credited with creating the rift between the star QB and Shanahan, what good will it do to bench him now? Plus the time to sit him to protect his health was the first three games not the last three.
The only explanation I have is Mike Shanahan wants to be fired.
Kirk Cousins is officially in as the starter for RGII.
THIS JUST IN: Kirk Cousins will start in place of Robert Griffin III for the Redskins this Sunday. (via @john_keim)
