Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins says he feels a sense of urgency now that he’s the starter while Robert Griffin III rehabs his knee.
“I think the approach doesn’t change a whole lot in terms of the time I’m putting in or the tape I’m studying,” said Cousins, per the Washington Post. “Where it changes is that sense of urgency. You feel that added excitement or added urgency to be ready to go. We don’t know what it’s going to look like. He may be ready by mid-August. He may be ready mid-September, mid-October. I don’t know. That’s not my job. My job is to get myself ready and when called upon, deliver. And I’m going to do all I can between now and then to do that.”
Cousins made it clear that all he cares about is having a long NFL career.
“I have the long view in mind. I hope and I’m going to make this career. Not a two-year career but a 10- or 12-year career, hopefully even longer,” Cousins said. “So with the long view in mind, I do believe that as long as I keep doing my job, answer the call when I get thrown in there, I’ll be ready to go and be able to play this game a long time. So I’m not in a hurry to be out there playing. I do believe I’m going to get my opportunities. I understand I have plenty still to work on. I see a lot of blessings in my situation right now in Washington D.C. That’s why I’m so excited to be part of the Redskins.”
I understand why Cousins is so anxious, but he needs to calm down. I think there’s a really good chance RGIII will be ready for week one.

According to John Keim of the Washington Examiner, there’s still a chance the Redskins could end up signing veteran cornerback Quentin Jammer. Though it would seem unlikely that Quentin Jammer would sign with the Redskins now that they selected another corner, he’s not completely off the radar. If the Redskins remain interested – still an if – any dialogue would start...

Has there ever been a franchise (and its fans) more focused on the every offseason move of one of its players than the Washington Redskins and their fans are on the rehab of Robert Griffin III? Barely a month ago, Griffin made headlines for throwing a football to an elephant at a circus. An elephant. At a circus. Coming off major reconstructive knee surgery, every step the...
Since Dan Snyder bought the Redskins in 1999, there have been many solid draft selections to go along with the questionable ones as well. Since Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have taken over draft duties, Skins fans have had sort of a relief in trusting the guys in charge as opposed to most of the Vinny Cerrato era. Regardless of who has been making the selections, there has been...
Linebacker Brian Orakpo told the Washington Examiner that he’s not concerned with his contract situation with the Redskins.
Orakpo is entering the final year of his rookie contract and likely won’t receiver an extension until after this coming season. He’ll need to prove to the Redskins that he can stay healthy after suffering season ending pectoral injuries for the past...
(AP Photo/Evan Vucci) People always say the first impression is the most important, and the Washington Redskins 6th round draft choice Baccari Rambo is taking that to heart. Most experts and football fans expected Rambo to be off the board way before the Redskins selected him in the 6th round. Rambo has been one of the best free safeties in arguably college footballs best conference...

Robert Griffin III's knee is still feeling fine. His ability to turn a room upside down is better than ever.
The Washington Redskins quarterback made an appearance - and quite an impact - Wednesday at a luncheon for the American Cancer Society. He raised $33,000 in a matter of minutes, more than half of the $60,000 tallied during the auction portion of the fundraiser.
