Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

^^ THIS - totally agree

we are playing better in all facets of the game - even the ST and D play has been better - maybe not stellar, but better

we can win this game with Kirk - he's shown he's got a good arm and he's not fazed - I like how he and RG3 have looked like they're in sync during the games
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 2016
we'll win some games but it will take years to be good again

Another smoke screen or an honest assessment of a quick healer. I predict the latter.

I also think Counsins is good. Based on what we have seen from him, he is REALLY good.

The question ultimately is whether he can sustain this type of consistency for 4 quarters. If he can, he is an NFL starter.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

I like Kirk and agree with you (for some other team), so don't take this the wrong way, but I don't look at him as a starter in the NFL. I look at him as a back up in the near term, and as a first round draft pick thereafter. He is nothing more than an insurance policy for Griffin this (and maybe next) year and an option for a #1 to be exercised at our discretion. I can't wait till he's flipped for a number 1 in a year when the safety we need is in the draft.
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.'"

I still believe that the reason we took Kirk was mainly because the FO thought he was excellent value at that time and that he might be worth a higher pick in the near future - I like how he has handled his time here and his opportunities and how he seems to be trying to be a part of everything that is going on with our offense

Kirk Cousins may be a great #2 to RG3 but I think he's going to get us a good player in the draft or via a trade

I like Kirk Cousins and I think he's going to be a good NFL QB
