According to Profootball.com, the Redskins have cut Beck. That leaves RGIII, Grossman, Cousins and Crompton on the roster.

We have a coach in shananan who sent a 2nd round pick to philly for mcnabb....gave him a huge contract....then started controversy with mcnabb and grossman.


I always find anecdotal arguments to be so compelling....

Dude, chill. RG3 will have competition his whole career. He'll be fine. It makes no sense that he's sweating that we traded 3 #1's and a #2 for him...then drafted a QB in the...wait for it...FOURTH round. Chill, seriously.

Actually that is the downside. We can't put Cousins on the practice squad, he'd be picked up. Remember we can't protect them, he has to be on the roster. This pretty much guarantees barring injury our QBs are RG3, RG1 and Cousins.

True, forgot about that. I still think it was a good pick.

THis isn't about competion for RGIII, it is about competition for RG3Int. I seriously doubt Capt Kirk will beet out Rex this year for the backup spot, but this move is for next year!


so another words, they used a high 4 th round pick to draft a guy who they hope to be the backup qb for 2013.....

instead they could have used that puck on a potential starting RT, NT, or player at a number or weak positions who actually gets on the field and contributes to special teams....

this is why the redskins are a perennial last place team and their fans are sheep.

It's like an Insurance Policy in the QB dept. Heck we've had qb troubles for decades, right..???

Here's Shanny's take:

Shanahan said that he told Cousins, “I couldn’t pass you up.”

“Sure he knows he’s going to be a backup,” Shanahan said. “But he’s only one play away or two plays away from being the starter.”

Soon after the selection of Cousins, the Redskins released John Beck, who started three games at quarterback last year. Shanahan explained that the wanted to give Beck as much time as possible to find a new team.

With the selections of Griffin and Cousins, the Redskins became the first team since 1988 to draft two quarterbacks in the first four rounds of the draft. Quarterback has been a problem area for the team for years and it is not surprising that multiple players would be picked there.

Indy is the one that actually needs a backup....name the qbs on their roster right now without googling?

Plus the colts didn't send 2 future first round picks and a 2nd round pick to get a QB...did they?

You already lost 3 future picks on a guy you want to build your future around...why not sign quality veterans to back him up...why waste the few picks you have left on another qb....when u can fill some holes on your team.

How nobody is saying if andrew luck gets hurt....nobody said that last year about cam newton....but he was stella right?.....You are already thinking injury....what a f'd up mentality we have on this board.
