I don't know. I think Cousins is more relevant and being talked about more BECAUSE of Griffin first and foremost. Griffin is also discussed outside of the Cousins draft discussion.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

As to the concerns that the Shannies might not handle the QB position well if a transition is needed or occurs, both RGIII and Cousins are big time character guys. From everything I have read on both, they get it. When adversity hits, they work harder.

These aren't guys who need pampers a' la Donovan "I don't wear a wristband b/c I'm a HOF QB" McNabb. They are "Yes coach", "No coach" guys. You know what happens the first time RGIII gets pulled from a game? He locks himself in the film room for a couple days and then gets one or two of the WR's to work overtime with him. As to Cousins, I am betting he busts his ass so, when the time comes, he gets the gold ring endorsement from Shanahan who - regardless of his failings - is still seen as a QB guru by the league elites. If Shanny likes him, he will be able to write his own ticket and I'm betting Cousins knows this or will soon enough.

The more I think about it, the more I like it. Barring an epic fail by both these guys, we are set at the QB position for the foreseeable future and can really focus on building from the center out (i.e. - filling in lineman, finding a playmaker or two) in the upcoming years.

The only reason he is getting more press now is b/c of the first pick. If we had just gotten Cousins - and not done the trade for RGIII, Cousins would not be getting the press he is now. It's "reflected press" if you will.

The news on RGIII was reaching a saturation point - this just gives the press a new way to talk about him.

We've been talking about RG3 for months now.

The Cousins talk will die down soon enough. There's no stopping the RG3 hype machine.

I'm sure as soon as Griffin does his trading card shoot he'll be popular again..should be doing that sometime within the next month.

Okay. Then don't discuss it with me.
But when you're not discussing with me do me this favor don't change my statements around about 'Rex and his pass progressions being better'
I responded and disagreed with your statement that Cousins provided more 'insight' on the progressions then Rex.
Rex knows the progressions in this offense he's just not a good QB.

Rex wasn't mentioned
That makes a lot more sense.
Cousins comes from a pro-style offense and has more experience with a rhythm passing offense where the drop back footwork is linked to progression reads.

The RZ stuff makes me go hhmmmnnn because Griff adds a whole different element in that area that could help generate TDs.

I actually share that concern a little but then I remember watching the Baylor games.
And my most scientific analytical opinion overwhelms me again: Griffin is a stud.

Anybody that has familiarity of the playbook will KNOW the progressions of a pass play. It's the approach of handling and executing through the pass progressions - that's what appears to give Cousins the advantage and better insight of "pass progessions" over Grossman.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

... like I said - Grossman's pass progressions are the worst by a veteran in the league. Whatever you want to call it - insight, approach, execution. He just doesn't do it well, whether or not he knows them are irrelevant -- apparently -- by his results on the field.

I heard them compare RG3 to Cousins in terms of progressions but when did they talk about Grossman's progressions?

Cousins Pick A Mistake For Redskins? - ESPN Video - ESPN


I thought Skip Bayless had reached the pinnacle of stupidity, but I was wrong after viewing this segment. Guy simply needs to be fired. Bringing up race? Really? He's pretty much calling the Redskins fans racists(and Shanahan).

I used to think that the media only gave us shit because we were horrible, so now that we've changed everything, they are still on our nuts. At this point, it won't matter if we start winning Super Bowls because they are going to continue hatting.

It's sad Eric Mangini has to put him in place. /facepalm

I now remember why I don't watch those dumbass shows.

Ugh, what a douche. This crap is just painful. Skip is the king of tinfoil hats.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

I admittedly was stunned at how "normal Eric Mangini is. I hated, hated, hated, when ESPN hired him. But he's arguably been one of the better additions in a while, in my opinion.

Skip's argument was ridiculous

Maybe I read this wrong then, but it seemed like you said it's what the experts are saying
