What ifs can be played with every prospect. No prospect is doomed to failure or guaranteed for success on draft day because there is simply no way to know that. It's that inbetween called "possible"; every pick is based on measuring the probability of someone panning out. They believed Kirk was the guy with the better probability to make it rather than guys at another position.

As for Cousins, when are we getting the avatar???!!!!
I have only watched it recently. And every time I have watched it, I've seen 1 or 2 good guests on it and wondered why they would appear on a show with such an idiot like skip bayless.
I have only seen him on this show and, each time I watched, he was a complete ass.

That doesn't change the quality of players you find in that round. They are still the lesser prospects, no matter how much you or the team wants them to be 1st round caliber players.

Which is all the more reason to get the quality depth now for the most important position on the team. Now, rather than trying to find a decent backup quarterback in future drafts, we can focus on skill positions and linemen. All the while developing a solid backup.

I hope so too.
If Cousins reaches his potential he'll be a better back-up then Grossman and ulitmately be tradeable commodity.
I've said it before I hope Cousin can become the back-up QB this year, it unlikey that a rookie QB wins the back-up job but it happens.


BTW-I didn't twist your words you did that all by yourself

Doesn't change the quality but it changes the quantity. More picks = more chances to get good depth.

I guess I just feel that we should've focused on skill/lineman in the post RG3 rounds this year since we had a QB in the bag and skill/lineman depth became a more important need IMO

True, but his what ifs or might's are things like "he might bring us a good draft pick" or "he might get on the field" and not just "he might be good when he plays". We don't even know if he'll get a chance to play. It's like we have to get passed one uncertainty in order to get to another one.

I will not watch anything that Bayless is a part of and not because this particular thing(even though this is his crowning moment in douchebaggery). He's been a jack-wad forever and it really just takes away from the show. Unlike many people, I'll just stop watching a show once it becomes a crap.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

Skip is among those whose talents are being wasted on First Take. Unlike others though, much of it is his own doing

working on a nickname for my Cousins bandwagon.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

look, if we really wanted massie, he would have been here. we had a 3rd round pick we could have used on him, or a 4th rounder. the FO said no thanks to that.

the last time the skins took two qbs, the late pick ended up starting a playoff game while the 1st round guy flopped out of the league. we got 3 linemen... would a 4th have made a huge difference? cousins will make the final 53, a 4th OL rookie probably wouldn't.

the overall talent level is higher this way. I don't get how the #2 QB spot is less important than the #4/#5 OG spot on a football team. injuries happen and john beck started games for us last year. that's really all the reason someone should need in regards to picking two QBs.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

I'm honestly sick of all the media attention to cousins. He was picked in the frickin 4th round. Every other nfl team passed on him Atleast twice before we picked him up. We have the potential to have the best quarterback situation in the league and were getting blasted for it? There is no controversy.

Cousins was picked in the 4th round

He is a backup!

This is only a controversy because people who are idiots make it one.
