Found August 21, 2012 on Players View:

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.

Could Kirk Cousins have a shot as the starting QB?

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. [...]

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...

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. Fourth-round pick Cousins went 18 for 23 for 264 yards with three touchdowns...

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...

Washington Redskins helmet, uniform concept design

A number of designers have taken their shot at redesigning the Washington Redskins helmets and uniforms to their liking. Featured are a number of designs. Some are interesting options, while some may hit a nerve with fans. Could you imagine Robert Griffin III or Santana Moss wearing something like this? Images are by multiple authors including, Charles Sollers, a photographer [...]

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. His back-up, Kirk Cousins has looked wonderful playing against 3rd and 4th stringers. QB controversy? Nope. But Skip Bayless is going to create one and he is throwing a huge [...]

Colts starters to see more time against Skins

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...

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 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? –...

Record number of rookie quarterbacks slated to start Week 1 of season

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...

Robert Griffin III Ready to Lead Washington Redskins Immediately

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...
