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 is tailored around him and it is the reason when he plays in the preseason it is against the opponents starting defense.
Kirk Cousins was drafted to be the back up quarterback and that is why he is playing against the scrubs in the preseason games.
If the roles were reverse, I am sure RG3 would do better against the scrubs and Cousins would have some issues going against the starters.
They are both young guys finding their ways, but for the media to say there is a controversy or that Cousins should start is absurd.
Wow! @realskipbayless just said Kirk Cousins is better than @rgiii right now! Agree or Disag...

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.

Week 2 of the NFL Preseason has passed and for the Washington Redskins it was a roller coster ride of a game as they lost to the Chicago Bears by a score of 33-31. The big story of the game no doubt was the superb play of rookie QB Kirk Cousins in the second half. [...]
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...
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...
Not a shock, but the Colts plan to play their starters into the third quarter in this week's preseason tilt against Robert Griffin III and the Redskins:
“We’ll monitor and see how the first half goes,’’ coach Chuck Pagano said Tuesday. “What you’d like to do is get ’em through the first half, get in the locker room, make the adjustments and then have your starters...
It has been a while since the Washington Redskins have had an explosive player who is a threat to score a touchdown every time he touches the ball. Players like Randy Moss in 1998, Devin Hester in 2006, or even Deion Sanders during his “Prime Time” glory days of the 1990s (not the 2000 version that delivered few big plays for a mediocre 8-8 Redskins team with Super Bowl title...
After showing Washington Redskins fans last week that he can make plays and find open receivers, Robert Griffin III was bound to have a game where he looked like a rookie. That happened Saturday night against the Chicago Bears.
With Griffin under center for six first-half drives the Redskins scored just three points with five first downs. He was sacked three times for a loss of...
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? –...
Robert Griffin III had to learn the NFL was not all rainbows and roses sooner or later, and it is fair to assume the Washington Redskins are glad they got it out of the way now rather than during the regular season.

The Chicago Bears gave the rookie quarterback all he could handle, sacking him three times in the first half, forcing a fumble...
So far the number is holding at three which would be a record according the Elias Sports Bureau. Since the AFL-NFL merger, no more than two rookie quarterbacks have started Week 1 of the season as their team’s starting quarterback.That looks to change with the Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck, the Washington Redskins’ Robert Griffin III and the Cleveland Browns’ Brandon Weeden...
On Saturday August 10, 2012, I happened to be in attendance for the Chicago Bears versus Washington Redskins preseason game at Soldier Field.
Though I am a Bears fan at heart, I was very interested to observe the play of Robert Griffin III, better known by his nick name of RG3.
I was not sure what kind of player or man I was going to be observing as all I knew of Griffin was the...
