True. And, he's been helping RGIII and the Captain a LOT.

I'm not surprised that nobody's owned up to thinking that Campbell could be a back-up here - there's more chance that JaMarcus Russell is here than Campbell :shock:

Considering Russell is a free agent and Campbell is a member of the Browns

That kind of confused me at first. I know we started calling Kirk, Captain almost immediately for obvious reasons but nuw that RG3 is a captain I got caught up wondering (for like a second), which captain/Captain you are referring to. Are you talking about RG3 the team captain or the "Captain" of the team, the one that isn't a team captain and not RG3.

Oh captain, my Captain!

:lol: - obviously ...

RG3 is the captain

and

Kirk Cousins gets the nickname 'captain' because of Captain Kirk ...

well - maybe it's clear to most of us ... :twisted:

How about, NONE of the above?

Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

Jason Campbell...............

:puke:

I would rather have Tebow............

In all seriousness, Rexy is our #2. He earned it last year.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

Hey, it's an old thread but here is the original post:

DarthMonk wrote:It's the off-season and our main man is rehabbing a pretty brutal injury. Although we all hope he is a healthy start for game one, he may not be.

For the sake of this poll, suppose RGIII does not play until after the bye - say game #9.

Whom, from among the FAs listed, would you rather have backing up Kirk Cousins?

Reasons would be interesting to see.

Not sure why it's "interesting" - it's actually NOT - it's a stupid poll



of that group only Rex is worth considering

and

BOTH Tavaris Jackson AND Jason Campbell are NEVER playing a down in B&G

the only thing "interesting" about this is who "voted" for Campbell

I would rather have me be our back up than Tim TeBlow. I am not an NFL Quarterback either.

In all seriousness, I agree that Rexy is our #3 behind Capt. Kirk, behind The Man.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

no question that Rex has helped here but I think that's also proof of how good his relationship is with both Kyle & Mike ..

I'd agree that Rex is here for a little longer ...
