If the reports were true and Washington could've fetched a conditional 2nd round pick for Kirk Cousins, then it was a colossal mistake to pass on the deal. Cousins star is fading, at least in terms of his being an NFL starter. Cousins' woeful play in place of Robert Griffin III last year was to blame. In three starts, Cousins completed just 52% of his throws and managed four touchdowns against 7 interceptions. Washington is better off keeping Cousins and hoping he adjusts to Jay Gruden's offense in the same way Andy Dalton flourished in Cincinnati. (May 25)

Redskins | Kirk Cousins outperforming RGIII? (Mon Aug 11, 02:55 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was the best quarterback on the team during the Redskins-Patriots joint practices, according to's Mike Reiss. Reiss said Cousins had better mechanics, was more decisive with his ball release and ran the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III.

Our View: Judging by the way the Shanaclan pined for Cousins all year, he might be a better practice player than game player. Griffin's lack of "wow factor" early in camp isn't encouraging, but we won't think about moving him down unless he stays in a malaise through the preseason.
