Cousins might not seem to have the "IT" factor but maybe he manages the ball well and wins the games. Sounds like Eli Manning to me.
No, sounds like John Beck to me. We been down this road. The NFC Super bowl representative will be a running QB who runs read option.

Anyway, look at Matty Ice and Schaub. classic drop back paser game managvers that have problems with athletic defensive players. Even look at Breeze , he is being meurderd this year. We thought that with John Beck and Grossman, not true so they got RG3 to give our QB some athletic ability. We tried this before with the great drop passer hope is not gonna save you from the running QB. Cousins is not that good.

RG3 definitely needs to work on holding onto the ball, as he's in 2nd place behind Matt Stafford in terms of fumbles (11). While some of that is RG3's blame, the o-line shouldn't be letting him get nailed so much.
Honestly I've blamed the OL. but RG3 does hold the ball one handed while running. As far as the knee brace... he didn't have it last year? nor the foot work.

The only thing, the only thing that makes RG3 special is his legs. Meaning he's fast and he can run. Yes I'm all for a QB who has mobility so he can get away from pressure unlike Sexy Rexy, but I'd prefer my QB to stay in the pocket and go through is progressions if at all possible. Which brings me back to the OL which sucks.

He happens to also have a cannon for an arm. If he can get his mechanics rite it would be a lethal arm too.

If shannahan didn't want RG3 why pick RG3. That is just stupid. The redskins are not sucessful because the entire team and all the schemes suck.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

Whats really funny is I go check out several news sites and they all were suggesting RG3 be benched a week ago or more and when MS does it the fans here blow up. LOL. Clearly nothing will make us fans happy.

I guess it's nice to have a canon for an arm if your firing for effect. That canon does the team no good if the ball does not get to the WR or the WR does not get to the ball. Most of his long balls this year have been over throws. It's not like he's threading a needle with his long ball, and you don't need a canon of an arm for 5 to 15 yrd passes.

There's probably some truth to this. However, I don't think they're ready to move on from him. I doubt that. It's not going to matter anyway cause they're probably going to be fired.

Beck? no. but am wiching for a QB who is like Aaron Rodgers, one who will sit in the pocket and deliver the ball, but will run from pressure if need be. Beck was not the latter.

Re: Kirk Cousins Expected To Start Sunday

A player put the team on his back, got you the NFC East Championship and he is not the right pick. Total BS.

You need an offense for that. Shannahan's offense is not what you looking for. With a drop back QB his offense sucks, with a running Qb his offense sucks. His only decent season was running read option. Any season he ran his own offense, his offense sucked.
