So you are Kirk Cousins. You want to be an NFL starting quarterback.

You have had nothing but challenges and people questioning you throughout your college years. Since the day you’ve been drafted everyone in the US but the Shanahan’s and a few fans questioned why you were even drafted by the Washington Redskins in round 4 of the 2012 NFL draft. So you must prove people wrong again. You aren’t very outspoken like Robert Griffin III, you don’t have TV commercials or the media all over your every word. You are a more quiet leader. Throughout training camp and the preseason you proved that you could play and be a viable back up in the NFL. So much so that a 10 year veteran who was the starting quarterback the prior year was made inactive week 1 so you could go in if need be. Week 14 comes around and in t...

RG3 is on his way to have his knee examined after an MRI done last night couldn’t conclusively determine if he has re-torn his ACL.
He is going to get checked out by Dr. James Andrews.
The Redskins fear that he has torn his ACL and PCL. If that is the case the recovery time is nine to 12 months and would put his 2013 season in jeopardy.
During the final minutes of the Redskins loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, RG3 was injured in a horrific manner. The extent of the injury isn’t known yet, but we are very positive that knees aren’t supposed to bend like they do below.

It’s not game 5 of the NLDS with the Nats, but it is going to hurt for a while. I’m not expecting anyone to get over this any time today. The Washington Redskins are no longer in the 2013 NFL Playoffs. All I can say is THANK YOU SKINS.
It was disappointing being at the game, it was even more disappointing watching the highlights at home. That’s the thing about not having the...
