Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has thrown for more than 200 yards in the past four games. The Redskins have only won win to show for it.
If there was ever a time to take the spotlight and be the star, the time is now for Cousins. The storyline makes it fair, and his demeanor during Robert Griffin III’s latest injury has been honorable. In other words, he could have “Bledsoed” RG3.
Drew Bledsoe was the New England Patriots first draft pick in 1993. He was signed to a 10-year, $103 million contract. No one knew Tom Brady, until September 23, 2001 when Bledsoe suffered what would be a career-ending injury against the New York Jets. The rest is history.
Cousins has been placed in the same position, and has the chance to make his mark in Redskins history as as hero. However, the team is doing no different, far from the surprising efforts shown in earlier games. For the past couple of seasons, Cousins has touted the message of how he takes advantage of every snap because he knows other coaches are watching.
To his merit, a QB rating over 100 is always nice to see on a record.
Wins are also nice too. No one remembers the good stats during the season. They remember the win-loss record. We can’t have two good quarterbacks that can’t close out games. Something’s got to give.
