Kirk Cousins seeks advice from other quarterbacks

In his four prior NFL seasons, Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins never spent an entire offseason as the starter. This year, as he adjusts to being “the guy” for the first time ever, Cousins has sought advice from other guys who have been or currently are “the guy.”

“I’ve called a few of the starting quarterbacks around the league, a few of the retired guys who had great careers, and just asked them what worked for them in the offseason,” Cousins said, via Tarik El-Bashir of CSNMidAtlantic.com.

Cousins didn’t say who he contacted, but Cousins discussed what he wanted to find out.

“What was their rhythm in January, February, March?” Cousins said. “When they went back in April, May, June, what’s their rhythm? What’s their rhythm in the summer? How do they handle family? How do they balance travel and opportunities?”

It’s a smart approach for Cousins to take. And it underscores just how well he performed in 2015, given that he was thrust into the starting job late in the preseason. This year, with the benefit of being the starter for the entire offseason, Cousins could be even better.

  1. The Redskins QB seems to be doing the right things for the Redskins. Hopefully, the Redskins QB can progress this year even further. This should help the Redskins in their attempt the win the NFC East again

    Wonder if he called Robert ?

    =========================================

    Throw coach under the bus.
    Make dumb t-shirts
    Complete revisionist history.

    OK, Thanks Griff, I’m going to put that in the what not to do section.

  3. This Washington Redskin quarterback, Kirk Cousins, is VERY professional. What a breath of fresh air for the Washington Redskins and the rest of the league. With his weapons, the Washington Redskins “should” be much improved on offense and I like what Scot did with the draft/FA to shore up the Washington Redskins defense. Hail to the Redskins from this native American Vikings fan from Devils Lake North Dakota.

    Redskins.

  4. The only thing I’d like to see Cousins do differently is to give a few more shout-outs to his offensive line. Those guys love playing for a QB that recognizes their value.

  5. Really like what I am seeing from the Redskins QB.
    Exactly the type of QB to take the Redskins far.
    Dominate the NFC East again Redskins.
    Super Bowl champion Washington Redskins.
    Keep up the great Redskins offseason Kirk.
    I predict 11-5 and a playoff run for the Redskins.
    No one in the division can stop the Redskins.
    Sing it with me, “Hail to the Redskins”.

    You forgot shill sandwiches.

  9. These comments are sad. The article is about Kirk, and still the only person you can talk about is RGIII. If Kirk was a true competitor/professional he would have been doing this from day one rather than waiting until he got a chance to start before he thought about the off season.
