Kirk Cousins

Postby emoses14 » Wed Jul 18, 2012 9:27 am

Cousins Primed for First Training Camp

This will be the first training camp in a while (and no, last year's Rex Cannon and the John Beck Experience do not count) where I am (almost) just as excited to see the back up guy play as I am the first string QB. I suspect many others are high on Kirk as well.

Also love this from that article:

"I think it's neat to go through this rookie experience with another quarterback," Cousins told Larry Michael on Redskins Nation. "There aren't really many quarterbacks in the NFL, who as rookies have another rookie alongside them to share the experiences with."

Through rookie mini-camp and offseason workouts, Cousins and Griffin III roomed together, ate together, worked out together and studied the playbook together.

"Robert and I have a great relationship, and we've had a lot of fun so far,"


While they are together in the B&G, I expect we'll be incredibly set at QB. What a concept!
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.'"

-Santana Moss on Our QB

Let's hope he's a quick learner and runs Grossman out of here sooner than later.

There is probably less than a 1% chance RG3INT isn't on the roster this season!

No way mike and kyle go into the season with only two QB and both are rookies.

I'm sure you're right. But whether its this year or next year or the year after, I'm sure most Redskins fans can agree it won't be soon enough! :)

while adding to his more turn overs then Tds... he did manage more 300+ yard games as a redskin then he did his entire career combined.

I like Rex. He shouldn't be at the top of our depth chart, but when he gets into the game it's not like we have no chance of winning.

He's an asset to the team because he knows the offense and has been in the system the longest. His turnovers are our biggest liability. No one can question that but to say that if he plays, we have no shot at winning isn't a true statement.

I'm sure you're all right about Rex's skills and his current value as a backup. I'm just saying that personally I can't wait until Rex Grossman is no longer our second best QB on the team.

I am the first to say that Rex should be no where near starting job....heck, I think he just fumbled again while reviewing tape on blitz packages at training camp! That he could be counted on for at least 2 turnovers a game was his biggest liability to us, IMHO. But....lets not forget that the game where he threw 4 picks was also the game where we sustained our first serious injuries of the season....against the Eagles at home. If Shanny had not have put in a QB who was truely worthless....i.e. Beck.....we MAY have picked up another couple of wins and MAYBE have been in a position to made some excitement in december.

I agree with those who say that all is not necessarily lost with Grossman IF that circumstance arises where he is called upon to play....but hopefully circumstances will not require his effort in regular season games.
A winning effort begins with preparation.
Failures are expected by losers, ignored by winners.

Would you rather have Mark Brunell as a back up? Perhaps Beck?
