WHoever posted that nonsense about Cousins didn't watch the game. While his numbers were not impressive.....he certainly played far better than the numbers indicated. I was not a fan of the Cousins pick.....but if last night is an indication of his talent level and play, then I can see what his supporters back on draft day were talking about. He showed poise, command of the offense, ability to escape pass rush, decent throws of which there were many drops by our WR/TE corps, in short he looked far better than Rex last night.

The quicker he develops, the sooner Rex is gone.

I thought Cousins looked in control, cool, calm and collected.

He showed a confidence and command of the offense.

If he continues on like this, he'll be the #2 QB next year. Honestly, he'd be the #2 QB this year if it wasn't for the ruckus that the media would create.

It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in the near future, the problems here are complex - unfortunately with Dan Snyder, it is what it is

I don't know what's going on in practice, but if we have 3 more games with similar performances from Grossman and Cousins, Cousins will be the #2.

Great concept, so how's that been working out?
better concept, kick the PoS's out or create a filtering system.

And now we have two of them debating each other, maybe if we leave them alone they'll stay in this thread and we won't have to deal with their baseless rants outside of this thread

In that case, just cut Grossman and free up another roster spot. 8)

+1 Chris

I think Cousins did an admiral job. Granted, this is only the first pre-season game so there is a small amount of playing time to measure. He was better than Grossman. I wonder how Shanahan feels about going into the season with an rookie starter and rookie backup. I really don't think Cousins will be with the redskins that long. After he gets experience, I can see him either getting traded for a nice high draft pick or signing elsewhere when his contract is up.


If so, I wish him well. But I am glad to have him with the Redskins.

Actually, Banks is about 1/2 inch shorter than Welker of the Patriots.

But maybe 20-30 pounds lighter, which means getting physical and fighting for the ball is a problem.
