It had to be done. Cundiff missed too many potentially game winning/tying FGs. The Skins have signed free agent Kai Forbath. Never heard of him? That’s because he was signed to the Cowboys as a college free agent, but spent the 2011 year on IR. He was then waived by Dallas and signed by the Bucs. In the preseason, he was 5-5 including connecting on 2 attempts of 50 yards or more (51 and 55). Let’s just see how he handles regular season game pressure.
As for RG3 there is so much speculation and mystery out there about just how bad his “mild concussion” was and the Redskins are getting a lot of heat for officially listing him as “shaken up” when he was taken out of the game. Shanahan has stated that Robert didn’t know what quarter it was or what the score was. That’s not shaken up. For a team that is so reliant on this QB, now is not the time to mess with a head injury. The Redskins are not playoff contenders. I know. I said it. This isn’t week 12 either. They’re also playing the Vikings not the Cowboys. We the fans and the team will be fine seeing Cousins/Grossman take the field on Sunday. Give RG3 another week to rest and have him out in full force.
There are still many tests that he must pass, but I think it doesn’t matter if he passes. Please rest this weekend!

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
