  1. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    Just so I am clear. I should not expect someone that wants to be one of if not the highest paid player in the game to perform without training wheels? I should make an excuse about every position on the field to why he is not showing it? I guess Crowder should have grown another foot to catch a patented Cousins fastball over his head too. I guess almost every time a needed third down comes along I should be happy that he throws it to the receiver running under the marker. Nah the hell with looking past the sticks. Let the receiver do it all. And forget identifying the free man blitzing coming after me. I will blame my blocker for a missed assignment instead as the 250 pound linebacker knocks the breath of Jesus out of my body. Cousins knew the situation coming into this season. He bet on himself. If you want to go around pointing fingers as to why he has looked like has that is fine. Whatever you believe to be true of the situation is your opinion. As this is mine. So yes if I see the man wanting to make 25 million dollars he better be able to perform as one of the top players in the league. He wants to be paid as a top dog then he needs to show he can do it without all of the excuses. QB's get all the glory when they win. They should also get the negativity when they lose.
  2. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    At what point did I complain about a win? I am complaining about the fact that our QB has been ineffective at best and am pointing out that fact. The game against Philly. Am I not supposed to allude to the fact that he was absolutely horrible against them? It does not have to be groundbreaking. He was awful. The whole point of the thread is talking about him is it not? Had he done better we would be up 2-0. We also would not even have the discussion in this thread now would we? He would have shut up the doubters like myself. Thus far he has not. As far as my tone is concerned is it no different in the absolutes that the pro Kirk crowd has? The oh lets give him more time to gel. He has new receivers. He needs help here. Needs help there. A 29 year old QB that has been in a very friendly system for 4 years now should not get the excuses that he gets. Some of you treat him as if he is a rookie. He makes the same mistakes over and over again. Just give him more time right? I want the guy to do good. I am a Redskins fan first not a fan of the player. If he wins the Redskins win. He has massive flaws in his game. I know other QB's do. I am not talking about those guys. I am talking about the one that wants 25 million to lead this franchise. He has not shown nearly enough to get that kind of contract. He has not improved or taken the steps that you want to see out of a 29 year old veteran. If he plays better and starts to cut down on those things that make this thread popular then I will eat my words. Until then to me he is a slightly above average system QB.

    Maybe Kirk and the receivers need to start doing trust falls in the huddle. If we have a Quarterback that wont throw the ball to receivers that are open because he doesn't trust them then we need a new Quarterback. Last year he got all of the credit when the receivers we running wide open and he was able to hit them. Never mind that they were making some pretty impressive catches and RAC yards. That is ignored. Lose our 1000 yard receivers and now he is missing them due to trust issues. The throws that are dropped seem to be focused on a ton. We make no mention of the 200 mph throws to receivers 5 feet infront of him that are usually high or inside to boot. He has zero touch at all. Evident on deep balls and fade routes. Desean hid the deep ball touch last year to a large degree and the fades speak for themselves. At what point can we simply say the guy is a system QB and is decent, not great, at running Gruden's system? I keep seeing how great he did that last drive. Well fantastic. We will just ignore the whole 7 quarters of football before that. Gets a pass on it because of the whole trust thing I guess I don't know. If he had played better those first 3 quarters against the Rams the game is not close. If he had played better against Philly we win. When do we start to give credit to Gruden in all of this? Maybe he deserves the 25 million Kirk wants eh? He is after all responsible for making a very mediocre QB look average. IMO Cousins has a lot more to do if he wants to be paid like a big boy. He has been in the league plenty long enough to not look like dog **** 2 weeks into the season. People need to quit blaming Gruden for Cousins not seeing the field.
  4. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    The coaches get a really bad rap imo. How many plays week in and week out are we cussing a player for dropping a ball or Cousins overthrowing someone wide open or a defender completely missing an assignment? They are putting those players in positions to win. We had Kelley get some huge runs that could have been six had he cut outside twice. We had a drop from Thompson that would have went to the house. Foster blew coverage on the one long catch. Breeland could not seal an edge on Gurley's big runs. Heck the fades should have worked early in the game too had the ball been thrown correctly. All of this stuff adds up. The points that this offense could put up are staggering when you go back and look at the missed plays that happen week to week.

    Foster finally does something useful!

    Cousins has looked like straight dog **** this year but I could kiss him on the mouth for that throw!

    Gruden knew Grant was going to special all along!

    Well might as well get my puke bucket ready as soon as we give up a 75 yard touchdown drive.

    If Pryor could just catch. That RAC ability is nasty.

    Perine is not that bad. Just have not had the holes we had in the first.
  11. Game Day Thread - Redskins at LA Rams

    For Doctson to not have a catch let alone one target is inexcusable.
  12. Game Day Thread - Redskins at LA Rams

    If they lose this one it is going to adjust the franchise massively.
  13. Game Day Thread - Redskins at LA Rams

    We have dumb football players. No other explanation.

    Ugh. And to make things worse Bobby "The Brain" Hennan died today.

    He had a pocket to throw in. He is regressing fast.
