RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) – In 2013, the offseason and preseason for the Redskins was riddled with question mark after question mark. Was RG3 healthy? How was his knee holding up? Will he start in week 1? How much thought is being given to Kirk Cousins starting?
None of those questions exist this season. There is no quarterback controversy in Washington D.C. this season. Robert Griffin III is the starting quarterback and the future of the franchise, as backed up by new head coach Jay Gruden.
That being said, backup Kirk Cousins has quietly been making his case why he should be sought after for a starting job somewhere. Cousins threw four touchdown passes to seven interceptions in three starts at the end of last season.
Fast forward to the Redskin’s preseason opener against the New England Patriots just a short while ago, Cousins, not Griffin, threw the game’s lone touchdown, and also threw for 103 with no interceptions.
And though all of his starting numbers last year were in losing efforts, Cousins provided a little bit of a spark to a team that had seemingly tapped out a long while earlier.
Cousins sat down with WAVY-TV to discuss what kind of impressions he feels he might have left, and if that could translate to a starting job sometime soon.
