Kirk Cousins shredding a weak Atlanta secondary


The Falcons’ secondary is a mess. And Kirk Cousins is taking advantage.

In Atlanta, where three rookies are starting in the secondary, Washington’s receivers have been getting open throughout the first half. Cousins, filling in at quarterback for Robert Griffin III, has done a great job of capitalizing.

In fact, Cousins is well on his way to topping Griffin’s career-high total of 329 passing yards. Cousins has completed 11 of 17 passes for 234 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the first half.

In this battle of the NFC’s two most disappointing teams, Cousins is looking good.

    I’m not surprised. Our front office and coaching staff knew what they were doing and still do. We have the best QB in Pro Football resting up for his Superbowl run in 2014 meanwhile Kirk Cousins continues to crystalize into multiple first and second rounders. Bruce Allen is smart and Mike Shanahan is brilliant. You are all jealous period. #ThankGodImaRedskinfan

    Trade RG3 while he has some value left

    Oh and Pierre Garcon continues to show why he’s the best WR in Football not named Calvin Johnson. #Statsdontlie

    Weak secondary or not, Kirk looks decisive and accurate.

    This guy is better than several QBs coming out this year.

  5. doctorrustbelt says: Dec 15, 2013 2:39 PM

    The same secondary Drew Brees has shredded since 2006 and Cam Newton has shredded since 2011.

  6. doctorrustbelt says: Dec 15, 2013 2:40 PM

    Brees and Newton get two opportunities per year to shred the weak Atlanta secondary.

    That’s good for the statistics.

    The excuse will be atl secondary sucks. How about hes a good QB that got very few snaps all year and He is better than Griffin. Believe it and accept it world.

    Exactly what RG. 3 needs- qB competition.
    This Cousins kid is no joke

    Robert Griffin the 3rd sucks and if this were Griffin at the helm, it would be a stout defense.
    Yeah we get it. Freeman is Minnesota is also AWOL, another of your guys. I am just surprised McCluster’s issue isn’t blamed on Coach Schiano.

    Good for Cousins, he didn’t ask to be in this situation, but he’s getting the job done out there.

    Nice work.

    (Seems like PFT could cut the guy some slack. You jump all over his fumble, and then when he scores 2 TDs, you say it’s because the secondary is weak. He’s playing good football, give the guy his due.)

    “Shredding a weak Atl secondary”…. Sooner or later people will have to admit this kid can play… If you check the PFT archives, there’s a guy who called this….

    Cousins gives the Redskins a better chance to win than Rob Griffin basically playing on one knee. Should have made the change a weeks ago. Just wish they would have waited until after the Dallas game.

  13. davikes says: Dec 15, 2013 2:53 PM

    Spielman is already on the phone with Shanny, first rounder in hand.

  14. fdugrad says: Dec 15, 2013 2:57 PM

    UH OH…CONTROVERSY. Maybe Washington can get a first rounder for Griffin!!!

    “Sooner or later people will have to admit this kid can play”
    – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

    …. or…. people will have to admit Brees and Newton get adulation for playing the weak Atlanta and Tampa Bay four times per season.

    Our defence is horrendous but Cousins is actually a good QB. He’s got a laser for an arm and can be a quality starter in the league

  17. marlin6262 says: Dec 15, 2013 3:09 PM

    Looks like the rams ripped the skins off for rshe3.

  18. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 3:10 PM

    Aaand an interception at his own goalline.

  19. chc4 says: Dec 15, 2013 3:12 PM

    Yeah, nice pick he just threw to give Atlanta back the lead.

  20. realfootballfan says: Dec 15, 2013 3:13 PM

    Bring on the hyperbole. If someone does trade a high pick for Cousins, their front office is as stupid as the Washington one, which is pretty hard to be.

  21. backdapack4evr says: Dec 15, 2013 3:26 PM

    What’s the latest on changing the Redskin name!!!

  22. bealwithit says: Dec 15, 2013 3:35 PM

    Cleveland has 2 1st round picks.

    Browns can use their late 1st rounder on Cousins and use their other picks to build their roster.

  23. axespray says: Dec 15, 2013 3:48 PM

    Wilson and Cousins after the 1st round…
    So of course the Redskins throw away a bunch of 1st round draft picks for the 1 leg guy.

  24. baltimorons says: Dec 15, 2013 4:18 PM

    RGIII sucks. This just proves it. Way to trade away your future for a qb that sucks. Did they get draft advice from ditka?

  25. washfootball says: Dec 15, 2013 4:22 PM

    Fire shanahan. He lost the game intentionally for going for two and giving rams a higher pick.

  26. wishingtonredslur says: Dec 15, 2013 4:23 PM

    Man they should have benched that shmuck RG3 earlier in the season, like never let him on the field earlier. What’s his record 12&18 in two years anyway. Four constants in life, birth, death, taxes, and the Redskins franchise in the basement.

  27. shalakka says: Dec 15, 2013 5:41 PM

    Cousins did great, but again Kyle couldn’t make the necessary adjustments in the 2nd half, only 3 points.
    Maybe keep mike but Kyle has to go.

  28. cuda1234 says: Dec 15, 2013 6:17 PM

    Third year qb’s:

    Tannehill > Cousins > Griffin
