Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

Cousins was definitely a steal in the round we got him. The quarterback position requires so much and when you're a team coming off a 5-11 that had two QBs toss 18 TDs and 24INTs combined, you have to not only upgrade the starter role, but the reserve role as well. I don't really agree with all of the criticism that Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan are receiving pertaining to drafting Cousins. Drafting Cousins was the right move to make.

Cousins was picked in the 4th round

He is a backup!

This is only a controversy because people who are idiots make it one.
The QB controversy has not even started yet but already there is one if that makes sense.Like I posted earlier,the MEDIA will jump on this and make it one if it kills them,thats what they do.
One analyst I head monday making fun of this pick was comparing it like this
My kids are hungry now,I can buy them food now to feed them or I can stick the money in mutual funds and try to make more money in the future.
Thats how I feel about this pick RIGHT NOW.I think we could have used the pick more wisely on something we need now.A lot of people are defending this pick saying we can turn it into more draft picks later.Who knows whos right,only time will tell
I think the only thing certain about this pick is that it will be played up by the media as much as it possibly can to turn this into a controversy,whether there is one or not.Any little thing that happens insignificant or not will be analized to death to make it a controversy

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

The media created controversy has no large effect on the relationship dynamics within the team, imo. The effect it will have on the team will be nothing more than annoying questions that have to be fielded during pressers.

Except for the "might get us good draft picks"(non-QBs get much worse returns from trades or they just get released), all of these things can be said about non-QB fourth rounders too. For every one Roy Helu, there are 10 guys like Martin Rucker or Mike McGlynn. Guys who will be gone from the team real soon and make little impact or negative impact while on it. And even Helu had to wait until Torain sucked in enough games, then he became the feature back.

Tom Brady was a 6th round pick. So, with your reasoning, he should be stocking shelves somewhere...Wait, that's Kurt Warner.

Anyone calling for Cousins after one year of RG3 would lose all credibility as a football fan. You don't give the No. 2 pick in the draft one year. Although, it is the 'Skins.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

I think the chance of RG3 struggling to the point where fans will be asking for Cousins is extremely slim. So thankfully we shouldn't have to worry about such a scenario.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

This is my take in the Cousins pick....
He was the original backup plan if we could not trade up to get RGIII and it was not expected for him to fall to the 4th round. BA says to Shanny.." Cousins is still on the board do you want to grab him!?" Shanny- " yes! I want to wipe the cupboard clear and start with fresh new minds, 2 intelligent QBs learning the system at the same time and it will just fuel RGIII to go 110%!" BA - " he can either be nice insurance in case RGIII goes down and he could very well turn into trade bait....let's get him!" Shanny- " cue the QB controversy card!" DS- " yeah, meanwhile we have a parade going for RGIII and 20,000 waiting for him at FedEx field.....please..... our 2 1st rounders say otherwise." BA- " 100 bucks say if the Pats made this move ESPN would be kissing their butt!"

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

I'm supprised at the media's negativity on the Skins picking up Cousins also. I look at it this way:

1- We have our franchise QB in RG3. Everyone wanted him. We got him.

2- There were some concerned about his size and the fact that his running might get him injured similar to Vick. Lets look at it this way, "IF" he were to get injured would you want to go back to Grossman and or Beck? I'm pretty sure we all had seen enough of both of them. So picking up another QB was going to happen. They didn't get P.Manning, and none of the other candidates were worth taking so drafting another QB was most likely going to happen. Would you want a decent back up or would you want the team to have taken a 7th round QB whome we all felt was simply camp fodder and god forbid he has to take over?

3- There were a lot of us to include myself who felt we should get rid of RG1 and Beck and pick up 2 QB's in the draft. Now we have two young QB's in the stable to play if need be. If one turns out not to work out we have the other, if both work out well then we have many options as in trading Cousins down the road or using the QB that fits best with what we want to do each week. We all know RG3 is the QB the coaches want to lead the team but technically he's not a "franchise" QB until he's proven himself and has been the leading QB for a few yrs. So should the team see something in an opponant that looks like Cousins might be the better fit the team can always have him play that week.

Most likely Cousins won't see the field unless the team is up by a lot of points then they can sit RG3 and let Cousins get playing time for perhaps a trade down the road.

Re: Kirk Cousins pick 4.7

Those ripping the Skins for wanting to have good depth at QB probably also ripped the Colts and Bears last year for not having good depth at QB. This whole thing is absurd.
