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:
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

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:

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 ...
