2) Cousins' new agent might have come in and said stop. Now.
3) its Christmas. And I am not kidding. Maybe Boogie asked and we gave somce forgiveness/redemption do to the season. letting the hooliday carry some water for us. Soudns silly, but its precidsely somethign I might have toyed wiht in a cold hard eyed tactical manner.
4) Cousins may have asked back and it may have mattered. He apparently apologized after the game to peeps. Too little for what went on? Sure. But it showed he acknowledged he was in the wrong. Maybe he did so again the next day and his message was come on, I said I'm sorry and meant it, don't blow this up into something we can't get past it in the future. I'm not going to be any more sorry two weeks from now. Just more pissed, and seen as an outsider int he locker room. We may have reinstated him with this suspecion just serving as a warning shot of the "if it happens again you're going to be out a lot longer" variety.
