Kirk Cousins did best on third down among 3 QBs for Redskins last year

The Washington Redskins have a bit of a third down problem. If you saw them play last year then you already knew that but he numbers tell a pretty depressing story as well. According to Stephen Hart at SB Nation, Washington converted on just 31.47 percent of their third down attempts last season, which ranked them 30th overall. While none of the three quarterbacks did particularly...

Kyle Shanahan Claims Kirk Cousins Will be a “Great Quarterback Some Day”

Washington Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins flashed signs of promise last season. He outplayed starter Robert Griffin III and his other competition in key areas. To Cousins’ credit, he threw 10 touchdowns in six games compared to the eight that RGIII and Colt McCoy combined for during their time under center. Cousins also averaged 285 passing yards per game compared to...

Mike Shanahan Still Has High Hopes For Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins

When Mike Shanahan was the head coach of the Washington Redskins he made some waves when he drafted Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Why go with Cousins in the fourth round when the team had other needs and RG3 was clearly expected to be the starter? Well--maybe it was because he didn't have much faith in RG3 or drafting Griffin was more Dan Snyder's brain child and he wanted...

Ten worst Washington Redskins’ Quarterbacks in last ten years

In honor of David Letterman’s retirement, I have compiled a top ten list of the worst Washington Redskins’s quarterbacks in the last ten years. Not that naming terrible players from a dysfunctional franchise is any honor to you Dave, but that’s all I got. The Redskins have had 10 quarterbacks who have started multiple games in the last ten years, which in my mind, or any sane...

Teams Apparently Not Interested in Redskins QB Kirk Cousins

Now that the Washington Redskins have committed to Robert Griffin III for the next two seasons, it stands to reason that the team would entertain trade offers for backup quarterback Kirk Cousins. This is only magnified by the fact that Cousins, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft, is less than excited about the idea of returning to D.C. as RGIII’s backup...

Washington Redskins: Should They Take Mariota?

It has long been dismissed as something that will never happen, but a thought that really made a lot of sense. It has now been reported that the Washington Redskins are interested in, and will work out quarterback Marcus Mariota prior to the draft. The team holds the 5th overall pick in this year’s draft and aren’t tied to any of the quarterbacks on their roster. Most of the...

The Washington Redskins have a QB dilemma

Quarterbacks are an extension of the coach, the field-generals. They lead by example and set the tone for their offense and team. Generally, how the quarterback plays is how the team plays. The Washington Redskins are no exception to this rule and for the past two seasons, they have been following the play of their quarterbacks straight into last place in the division. Robert Griffin...

Tweet of the Game: Kirk Cousins is the real deal

If Kirk Cousins was just playing okay, that’d be enough for most people. He’s a backup quarterback, and his main job is to keep the team afloat until the starter returns. Well, for Washington, they may be quickly finding that their starter is already here. Kirk Cousins isn’t just doing an outstanding job given the circumstances. He’s doing an outstanding job — period. This...
