Also, with the my aforementioned post about Kolb and Cassell being overrated busts, that were made hot for just a few games of work, might have teams cool on Cousins. Cousins didn't even get a full 2 games in.
Skins fans hate having two good players in one position.

Fans can dream all they want, fact is Cousins isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

But St Louis gets that pick anyway so that is a useless pick, and Cousins goes to the playoffs and we get a pick between 20-32. Yay..

It's not that I want to see cousins traded as much as I see a young quality backup QB as an asset. If we didn't have holes in the secondary I would think twice. That and I don't want to have to pay him once he's off his rookie contract. I would rather trade him sooner and fill a hole instead of keeping him and watching him leave for nothing.

Also, I know I'll get killed for this. But I don't mind grossman as a backup for the next two years. I know we won't set the world on fire with him, but he's capable.

Re: Around the NFL Free Agency Thread 2013

You gotta keep Cousins. We get more mileage out of him while we build his trade value.

Not so much grossman over cousins as much as grossman and picks over cousins.

Re: Around the NFL Free Agency Thread 2013

After watching Cousins pull out that miracle over the Ravens...

I just don't think Grossman could've done the same.

But what about if he doesn't play well when comes in to pinch hit next year?? He's not going to be building his trade value then. He has built it because he has played limited games and looked good, a la Kevin Kolb & Matt Flynn. But if that success doesn't continue in limited action, they that value can go right back down.

Not that I think it will, just sayin'....

Re: Around the NFL Free Agency Thread 2013

Cousins has only seen what, 5-6 quarters of action so far? It takes a bit more than that to build some real value.

Re: Around the NFL Free Agency Thread 2013

cousins made the most out of what he was given. his first showing wasn't super, but he played well vs the ravens and cleveland, which have/had decent passing D's from what i remember.

and he'll have all preseason to look great vs future grocery baggers soon enough...

He might crap up the joint. Dems the risks. But his trade value is limited now.
