Found August 25, 2013 on DC Sports-Kings:
Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was roaming the sidelines all day in the Redskins preseason game versus Buffalo Saturday afternoon. Before the game he had his picture taken with possibly an unknowing fan during pregame.   Seeing this shirt yesterday made me laugh! ‘Skins fans have been great to me from the day I was picked, thank you! pic.twitter.com/WXJIsJED3u — Kirk Cousins (@KirkCousins8) August 25, 2013 Many teams, including the Redskins, have always loved the back up quarterback. At least in this case there is reason to considering Kirk Cousins played a vital role in last year’s playoff run and could start week 1 if Robert Griffin III is not cleared to play. While Cousins infatuation has a different feel than the one fans have with a Pat White, a Colt Brennan or a Todd Collins, at least he feels loved by the fans for all the right reasons.   Follow us on Twitter: @DCSportsKings @kettner_sk   For related stories check out: Washington Redskins projected 53 man roster part III Robert Griffin III fined for apparel violation
