Skip Bayless Thinks Kirk Cousins Should Start Over RGIII

In today’s episode of ESPN First Take, Skip Bayless said that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III should actually be backing up the other quarterback they selected in this years draft, Kirk Cousins.

Skip Bayless drops controversial comments about Robert Griffin III

I have been asked three times today about a certain topic that I was going to avoid because it seems silly to fan the flames of a garbage related situation. But here goes. ESPN’s Skip Bayless decided to step onto TV and play the race card in regards to the quarterback situation in Washington. To read this article please click the link below.

Skip Bayless Thinks RGIII Should be Backup to Kirk Cousins

Outspoken ESPN reporter Skip Bayless has had a lot to say about the quarterback situation in Washington this offseason and it appears he isn’t done with it yet.It started after the NFL draft when the Redskins drafted both Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Yes, the pick of Cousins raised some questions for the team, most notably whether the team had doubts about RGIII, but to...

Skip Bayless: White Redskins fans support Kirk Cousins over RG3 (Audio)

ESPN talking head Skip Bayless is paid to say some of the most extreme, ridiculous things possible in order to generate controversy, but he went too far on Monday when he accused Redskins fans (and white and black fans) of racism. Discussing the Redskins quarterback situation, Bayless said white fans would want fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins, who is white, to succeed over first...

Redskins' other QB settles into life behind RGIII

A stellar second half in a preseason game isn't changing Kirk Cousins' perspective. The Washington Redskins' other rookie quarterback says these games in August are his ''Super Bowl'' because he knows he'll likely be playing behind Robert Griffin III for the next few years.

3 sacks give Redskins' RGIII a taste of pressure

A rookie quarterback put up some great numbers for the Washington Redskins. It wasn't Robert Griffin III. It was fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins, who threw three touchdown passes in Saturday's 33-31 loss to Chicago. Of course, Cousins was playing with backups in the second half and is no threat to overtake Griffin for the starting job. But the No. 2 overall pick could learn...

Media Starting QB Controversy With Redskins, When There is No Controversy

I am a proponent of the best player should play. Regardless if you are the 1st pick in the draft or Mr. Irrelevant, but when things are equal it makes no sense at all to start a controversy when you have already decided who you are going to start. Robert Griffin III was drafted to start for the Washington Redskins. That is why he takes the 1st team snaps, that is why the offensive...

If anyone was still looking to fabricate for a quarterback controversy for he Washington Redskins, then Kirk Cousins provided plenty of ammo on Saturday night.

It won’t be enough to push Robert Griffin for the starting...

Skip Bayless Says White Redskins Fans Will Root for Kirk Cousins Because it’s Human Nature

With every day that passes Skip morphs more and more into the Rush Limbaugh of sports. To be honest Rush was fired from ESPN for similar comments about how the “black media” wanted to see Donovan McNabb to succeed. If you really dig deeper into these comments what Skip is saying is worse. On ESPN’s First Take this morning, Bayless, who is still irrationally angry about the...

Skip Bayless: Redskins fans are rooting for the white guy

The Washington Redskins have their new starting QB, Robert Griffin III, going through his growing pains, as he faces starting NFL defenses in the preseason.

Skip Bayless Sinks Even Lower By Saying It’s ‘Human Nature’ for Sports Fans to Cheer Along Racial Lines

I didn’t think it was possible, but I was wrong. My opinion of Skip Bayless has somehow sunk even lower. Not surprisingly, it’s because of something moronic he said. Via Sarah Kogod of the great D.C. Sports Bog, Bayless said the following today on ESPN’s morning show First Take-a-Dump: “Some foolish Redskins fans – fans, foolish, doesn’t that go together, right? –...
