5 reasons why the Redskins will not trade Kirk Cousins

Mark Tyler is wrong. He writes The Time to Trade Kirk Cousins is Now in his post on Hog Haven. Tyler writes like a Cousins fan miffed at the news that Robert Griffin Iii enters 2015 season at the top of the Redskins QB depth chart. “…and all Cousins really needs is the backing of a coach and organization, some protection up front, and some of his confidence back.”   Bloggers...

Someone Put A Michigan State Hat On Top Of The RG3 Statue At Baylor

Michigan State pulled off a memorable 42-41 comeback win over Baylor in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic yesterday, and the Spartans’ stirring rally apparently inspired someone to doctor the statue of one of Baylor football’s most famous alums outside of McLane Stadium in Waco. Yup, that’s a Michigan State hat on top of RG3′s head. @RGIII says #gogreen! #CottonBowlChamps...

Kirk Cousins vs. Russell Wilson: College Edition

Before Kirk Cousins dueled Russell Wilson in the NFL (Cousins stepped in for an injured RGIII in that infamous 2012 playoff game), they shared a remarkable duel in the Michigan State – Wisconsin series. I have an academic attachment to both schools and watched these games with great fascination. My rooting interest is more Spartans than Badgers; I spent more time in East Lansing...

Ex-Spartan QB: No shocker Foles, Cousins excelling in NFL

Michigan State QBs are a hot topic in NFL circles these days. Former Spartans Kirk Cousins, Brian Hoyer and Nick Foles (who later transferred to Arizona) were all at one time in the MSU quarterbacks room together and now each is thriving. Cousins (Washington) is the NFL's No. 4 ranked passer. Hoyer (Cleveland) is No. 10 and Foles (Philadelphia) is No. 11. (Another former Spartan...

Kirk Cousins performance a surprise to many, resolves nothing about future.

Kirk Cousins’ performance as RGIII’s stand in comes as a surprise to many. Not to Hog Heaven. I have seen him win too many games in the last two minutes for the Spartans to be surprised by his performance in the last two weeks. In fact, his last pass thrown behind Pierre Garcon was a bit of a shock. After an otherwise great performance, I expect that more first team practice...

Dantonio: MSU won't run up score for style points

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) It was a winning weekend for Michigan State, even though the Spartans didn't play. That's because Kirk Cousins, Brian Hoyer and Drew Stanton - all former quarterbacks at Michigan State - led their NFL teams to victory. ''I think that's a statement of Michigan State football - what they have been able to accomplish individually and then as a group,'' Spartans...

Kirk Cousins trade rumors entertain bored Redskins fans

Redskins fans don’t have a lot to do this evening. Why not fan every rumor involving our favorite trade bait, Kirk Cousins. The back-up quarterback is the most popular player on the team. In Cousins’ case, it’s because so many fans are anxious to dump him. Redskins fans are not used to other teams’ interest in Redskins players. It has worked the other way around since the...

2014 Cleveland Browns: The Annual Hunt For a QB Has Begun

2013 was not a great season for the Cleveland Browns. Under only-year head coach Rob Chudzinski they finished 4-12 and last in the AFC North, despite having a 4-5 record entering their bye week.  How can a team with five Pro Bowl players falter so badly down the stretch?  The answer is an all too common refrain within the NFL today: poor quarterback play.Last season Cleveland subjected...
