I guess I should have added the sarcasm face after my OP.....
The Browns would be foolish to get rid of their (1) true play maker on offense.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

Cousins = Nick Foles

Play him behind a dominant line and you'll be pleased with the results. Play him behind anything else and you'll be no better than 8-8. I'd take a 3rd.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

I don't really know what will happen with Cousins because as some have pointed out, RG3's health is far from a sure thing and the same can be said about his play. Nobody really knows 100% that he is going to go back to being what he was before the injury. Now -- he should be much better to begin 2014, but i think its foolish to stand back and say we know for sure that he will be awesome again.

But - they have basically said that RG3 is the starter no matter what, so unless injury happens, no chance of Cousins coming in like he did last year. With that mentality, a player like Kirk might want to go somewhere else where he at least gets a shot....

Cousins will always resemble Wrecks: runs hot, runs cold, prone to turnovers.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

If I were the Redskins, I'd need to see RG3 bounce back before I deal Cousins. Gibbs use to say the backup QB is the 2nd most important guy on the team and I could not agree more. I think everyone is just assuming that RG3 will bounce back. We have two young drafted guys that have shown they can both play on 4 year deals. QB is one of the few positions where we have depth. I hold on to that depth for another year.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

I think we get a 2nd and a 5th for him. Outside shot of getting a 1st.

(I don't think anyone is judging him on the last three of his starts for the Barnum and Bailey Redskins. The kid has a laser, is a hard worker, has poise in the pocket, is mobile and is smart. Someone will give up a second and a later round pick, although I could see him going for a 1st. Call me crazy, but I think it'll happen.)

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

Even in 2012 Cousins had his ups (Browns) and downs (Falcons). Anyone who thinks that he is a bona fide starter or gives up a high draft pick is expecting him to show something he hasn't: consistency, including consistent ball security.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

I'd say the high/low on draft picks for Cousins would be mid 2nd to high 3rd.

I doubt that the Skins would trade him for less than a high 3rd Round pick.

This seems like the most realistic scenario.

I think the Skins would be elated with a 2nd rd offer, but would probably entertain a 3rd if it's high enough. I don't see a 1st rd offer being realistic at all.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

Im for keeping Our American Cousin but if we trade him Ive found a quality back up for Bob. Watch this zone read at :49 its a smoooth as silk.

He came in to that Falcons game cold and against a very good team. I dont think u can call that a down. He has never had a consistent run with the first team starters. On top of all of this he like Griff plays behind one of thee worst offensive lines in football without a strong group of wr's. Based on the mess this team has been lately i think it is way to early to label either one of them as a boom or bust.

Abraham Lincoln would disagree.

That's old. This kid has ballooned up to 320lbs.

Look at that pocket presence.



That dude could be our NT and our backup QB.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

Jason Campbell would make a perfect back up. It would make my season to laugh at the Browns every week Cousions throws 2, 3 ,and 4 picks.

Re: Cousins Open to Trade.

I think he ends up going for a 3rd and a 5th to the Vikings or Jags
