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.

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.

When I saw this I knew I needed to use it in a post, but than I couldn't really come up with anything of substance to post it with (that would make sense at least). So rather than not share it with the world (which would be a travesty) I decided to come up with a couple doofy sentences and just do it.

Handing out labels after Skins games. This time a 30-7 win over Buffalo.
Rex Grossman — Pretty average game. Lucked out when a DB dropped an easy pick. Didn’t get hurt. Is more established than ever as the backup to the backup QB.
