Not as long as Philly has fans.

There was an Eagles fan in the front row at the game in in Philly last week who is the reigning king of "knee jerk" reactions. During one Eagles offensive series he cheered loudly on every down that the Eagles made positive yardage and booed loudly on every down that the Eagles made negative yardage. I've never known a Redskins fan who could do that.

Has a bad second year (do to injury no doubt), and he's mentioned in the same category as a bust and people are wanting to trade him. Kirk Cousins comes out and plays decently - basically like how a normal second year fourth round draft pick back up quarterback would play - and he's a dime a dozen. OR, he's a superstar. One extreme or the other!

Come on guys!

Which would you rather have: A combination of RGIII/Cousins, or John Beck/Rex Grossman? I would take my chances with the former. And I would also make sure those two quarterbacks are on the same roster next year as well. Seriously, this is the best depth the 'skins has had at quarterback in a long, long time. There are more serious issues that need addressing - but quarterback is not one!

Special teams, alone, have lost the 'skins some games this year. Defense has lost games for this team as well. Offensive pass protection has been bad for most of the season - and it's gotten worse. The only time I feel it's necessary to complain about quarterback play is when the offensive line is as stout and solid - to the liken of the old hogs. When the defense is solid and stingy, and the special teams makes big plays for the 'skins and NOT for the other team. Then if the Redskins are still losing games, then we need to take a long hard look at the quarterback. Heck, even if all the 'skins are able to improve on is pass protection and special teams - that might be enough to give a good long look at quarterback, but as far as I'm concerned, this team needs to overall some very glaring issues first before we start crapping on RGIII or Kirk Cousins.
He's the first Redskins QB to throw for over 300 yards in his first 2 starts and you call that NORMAL? First round projected starters BUST on a regular basis in the NFL, yet a 4th round pick puts up numbers like that and it's considered routine. Not saying KC is a future Hall of Famer or even that he won't amount to anything more than a career backup, BUT I don't see how anyone can say he's just been OK or performed as any 4th round backup would.

I'm with you on everything else. If the Special Teams and Defense weren't absolutely, bottom-of-the-league, abysmal, the Skins would have won 4-5 more games this year. They can improve in both areas in a single off-season. If they were even middle of the pack in both areas, the season would have been totally different. With a full salary cap and via the draft, they can do what they need to do to contend for the worst division in football... next year!

Yeah he's thrown for some yards (against some bad defenses) but the turnovers are a concern.

As I have said before that is a result of inexperience and not inability imo.

I agree. My concern is with his passing game - will he be a more accurate passer? A better decision maker? I think his mechanics were bothered by the brace, (throwing off his back foot, etc), but his inability to read the field is what has me concerned.

Yeah I don't get why everyone says..."well it's his brace"..First of all a brace doesn't hurt your accuracy. Mobilty? I'd agree there, especially with someone that moves like RG3. When he should've been progressing as the season went on, he seemed to get worse and make the same mistakes over and over again. That concerns me. This is why we need to keep Cousins. We are not sure if he's ever going play well in a pro offense. We don't know if he's Vince Young or Steve Young.

Re: Kirk cousins = dime a dozen

I don't think it was the brace as much as he lost the muscle memory and lacked full confidence in the knee as well. Nothing a good offseason of working on fundamentals can't fix. Something he didn't get enough of due to rehab.

I think you completely misunderstood my point. I'm not cracking on Kirk Cousins at all. In fact, quite the opposite. I'm saying that a lot of Redskins fans around here are in one extreme or the other. Either that Kirk Cousins is a superstar or he's a dud. I'm basically saying he's done some great things in his limited time playing, but he's also looked like a fourth round quarterback with limited playing time. He's had good and bad. The more playing time, the more I think Kirk becomes one of the better quarterbacks in the league, but all this talk about trading RGIII and starting Cousins OR that Cousins isn't worth even the fourth rounder we spent on him is both crazy talk.

That's all I'm saying.

Cousins had a full offseason with OTAs with the first team. I expect more from the next Tom Brady. Cousins had all the off season RG3 did not have. People say RG3 needs a full offseaeson , well Cousins had a full offseason and all we get is 3 TDs and 3 picks against ATL and Allas (Dallas has no D).

They are both on this team next year unless we get some outrageous offer for one. Translation....they are both on this team next year.
Because of the brace and what Matty alluded to though he was throwing off his back foot hence the accuracy. It was his reading of the field that there was really no excuse for. He needs someone to coach him up in that regard. There are a handful of candidates - namely the three i mentioned that can do that - that have done that with Wilson, And Kap especially - who has come on strong the last few weeks.

RG3 has said himself he wants to be Aaron Rodgers. He's made that known to the coaches. Problem is he's still a project in the pro pass game and there's pressure for him to perform now because of the ridiculous trade. Should be an interesting off season.
I would have preferred that the coaches did a better job working on Griffin in a pro passing attack, and let him learn, even if it meant losing. Griffin's best chance at winning now is to run a college style read option attack that the league has clearly caught up with. Our next coach had better be able to groom raw talent, because Griffin isn't getting cut or traded any time soon.

So who else thinks KC went from being traded for a high 2nd to staying for another year as RGIII's backup with his performance the past 3 games?

Why wouldn't they? Dan Snyder created the ridiculous circus here and stirred the pot by trying to shove the Washington post around and force them to be Larry Michaels (AKA lickspittle toady Dan Snyder Yes men).

Hurt the franchise? I would say Danny boy has done 100% of that to himself by being a massive D-bag that does everything the wrong way.

I agree that Cousin's is looking awful Jay Cutler like... and I;'d be the first to point out that MANY great QB's looked bad/mediocre/horrible in their first starts... Just usually not after grooming/practicing for year.

Sadly RGIII was looking worse. Not sure how they recover from this disaster, but I am sure that it will take at least a year or two to sort it out and get to some semblance of stability if they can manage even that.
