Re: Redskins Sign Colt McCoy

Weird move. I don't know much about McCoy or what the Skins' plans are with him. But after signing DJax, they could sign a wooly mammoth for all I care. I'd side eye a bit but I'd trust them.

McCoy is garbage. I don't care if he has experience. He has no deep ball at all. Should have tried to get back Campbell as a back up if they're trading Cousins. Maybe even Weeden. This is a big play offense now with a QB that has questionable knees. Got to have a strong backup here.

Lol, Redskins are signing virtually everyone fans wanted from past drafts.

Cousins has started 4 games, and McCoy has started 21. The stats are misleading, if you enter a game late, and are down 14 you are more likely to force passes, then get interceptions.

I think Cousins will develop into a good QB, and trading him would be a big mistake. What did P. Manning, or Brady do in their first 4 starts ?......Manning had 28 interceptions as a rookie, and Brady didn't start a game

Give Cousins a dozen starts before you compare him to McCoy

why would we give cousins starts? I rather have colt and a 2nd round pick than a backup with "potential" that never plays.

honestly, whether it's colt or cousins, if either one is starting for us, we're already boned.

Well, when we have the 30 point cushions with 10 minutes left we could be resting our starters and letting Colt/Cousins light it up with Hank and Robinson

Re: Redskins Sign Colt McCoy

I would be happy with a 2nd round pick for KC. Maybe with the Browns.

When we get a strong backup, let me know. The numbers which you dismissed tell the tale that Cousins isn't all that good.

As for the arm, Gruden's offense is designed to compensate for QB's without a lot of arm strength. Ask Andy Dalton.

I never said give Cousins starts over RGIII, however throwing him under the bus after 4 starts is foolish. There are teams that got to the Super Bowl with a good backup QBs.... I think the Redskins are one of them.

the back up with "potential" had over 350 yards passing in a NFL game

I just think it was a case of needing another arm for camp and otas. I think at this point it has no bearing on Cousins future. Things could always change, but McCoy is not really a guy I want playing in any meaningful games.

I like our chances with with an unknown in KC better than McCoy.
