Thank You Kirk Cousins Thread
 
Since the franchise tag deadline has now passed, and Kirk is set to become a Free Agent, is it okay to post this here?

Thank you Kirk Cousins! He was my second favorite QB here of all time, with Mark Brunell being 1st. He gave us respectability at the position, and was a guy that we never had to worry about getting in trouble at a club, or running afoul of the law like so many NFL players. While ultimately we may never know if Kirk was all about the money from day one, or if he really wanted to stay here, I want to give my heart felt thanks to him, for energizing our fanbase after the RG3 disaster and giving us hope, and lots of great moments:

Redskins Records:[LIST]
Most 300 yard passing games in one season
Best at-home passer rating since 1950
Most pass completions in one season
Most consecutive passes without an interception at home
Most passing yards in single season
Only QB in team history to have three 4,000 yard seasons
[/LIST]
There's probably some others that i've missed, but i think those are the big ones. Thank you Kirk!!

Will always be a fan. Alex Smith is my new favorite quarterback though. [emoji4]

I salute this thread. And wish Kirk well. Except when he plays us.

I'll keep an eye on him elsewhere, if he goes to the Vikings I definitely wouldn't mind him going deep in the playoffs. I put partial blame on him for the way things ended but I can't fault him for not reciprocating when the Redskins didn't show him any love.

Good luck to him elsewhere, and thanks for helping bring the Redskins out of the dumpster and into the land of averageness.

I have much love and respect for Kirk Cousins. For the first time in a long time, he allowed me to watch my beloved team with a bit more confidence and higher expectations than I've been able to enjoy in several years. He's an all around good guy and in the end, I can't fault him for wanting to get maximum value and dollars for his family. Yes, admittedly, there is a part of me that hopes he doesn't become too overly successful, because from this point forward, the sports media will bash the Redskins organization for years to come over this.

All the more important reason for the 'skins to find their own future franchise quarterback, as I resolved myself to the fact that Cousins was never, truly, wanting to be in Washington.

That being said, good luck Cap'n Kirk! Unless you're playing the Redskins!

I think Kirk was damn good here and I will miss him, I wish we could have kept him or that he wanted to stay but for whatever reasons he is now gone and we have a damn good QB in Smith. I could care less who KC goes too and how well he does, he's no longer my teams QB.

Hope he has some success wherever he goes. Hope we play him this season, too.

Hard for me to be thankful for a guy who took up a lot of our cap space in the past two years with average results, and wanted to be paid like a QB who could carry the team on his back. Good effing riddance from me.

And yes yes, I know the team had some fault too, so no need to re-hash this.

Kinda how I feel, like I said I won't be rooting for him/team that he's on. It's like when Champ left (My favorite player at the time), I could care less what he did in Denver.

I am more in this line. For all his positives, he brought just as much drama to the offseasons and made the team all about him. For those who say the Skins eff'ed it up, I say Cousins held his grudge far past what most teams would put up with. As I understand it, the coach, the assistant coaches, at one point the General Manager, were all in his corner and put their necks on the line to get him his shot. And in the end, he basically punked Gruden.

Personally, I expect him to crash and burn, and I feel sorry for Vikings fans if he ends up there. They are a fan base that I could get behind to win a superbowl, if they get back to that point, but they won't. Not with Cousins.

(IF they do, I will be happy for them).

Finally,

Setting team records doesn't mean anything when you basically are trying to run away from the team who is putting it all together for you.

Cousins has had nothing but Offensive gurus running his offenses, he clearly is a good qb, but what makes my team heroes:
Art Monk
Darrell Green
Riggo
Theisman
Chris Samuels
London Fletcher
Clinton Portis
Santana Moss
Trent Williams
and others
Is that they were/are Skins first, football players second. Cousins was never EVER that.

I wish Kirk nothing but the best of luck. I'll definitely keep an eye on the rest of his career.

Now, on to Alex Smith.

I liked Cousins but can identify with CRed's view. I like guys who are committed.

I also think Gruden's scheme, with McVay being here, and the quality of the surrounding cast makes Cousins look better than he really is. I think deep down Cousins knows it. He will look to land in a situation with as good a surrounding cast as possible, which is why Minnesota is probably the leader in the clubhouse. Getting to play with Diggs, Theilen and Rudolph plus a good defense is exactly what Cousins wants.

Thank you for needing to be wanted like a high school chick, winning us 0 playoff games, playing like shit in the clutch constantly, and using us as a springboard to get way overpaid. You played the system like a fiddle, that's the only thing I'll congratulate you on.

Can't wait to see Alex sling that ball around for us.

Oh, and go Packers!!!!
