Last night’s megatrade that will send Alex Smith to Washington ensures that this offseason is almost certain to feature that rarest of NFL species: an experienced starting quarterback venturing into unrestricted free agency. Brace yourself, gentle reader: We live in a world in which Kirk Cousins will likely soon be…
Welcome to Bad Quarterback Performance Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the worst quarterback play the NFL has to offer.
It’s been almost four years since Washington’s slap-dick field cost them Robert Griffin III’s knee, and possibly career. Somehow, they are still letting things like happen:
Kirk Cousins and Washington thwarted what would have been a second straight late game-winning drive by Russell Wilson to grab a win in Seattle this afternoon. Despite leading for almost all of the second half, they found themselves suddenly staring down a a 14-10 deficit with a minute and a half to play after Wilson…
The effects from the Patriots’ decision to trade backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers will reverberate from now until next year’s draft. And the impact will be felt across the league.
Greg Bishop of Sports Illustrated published a Q&A with Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins today. He discusses his new workspace at the stadium, his experience golfing with Donald Trump and his perspective on the protests during the national anthem. He also discusses this, regarding the birth of his son last month:
The Eagles beat Washington today, 30-17, but the scoreline was a little misleading: Philly scored two touchdowns in the first half, then only managed field goals until a late fumble return touchdown from defensive lineman Fletcher Cox.
The first thing you notice, once you look a little more closely into the Skins’ attempt to gain the high ground on Kirk Cousins, is that in the video meant to smear the quarterback as unreasonable, team president Bruce Allen repeatedly calls him “Kurt.”
Kirk Cousins did not get a new contract before the NFL’s franchise tag deadline passed this afternoon, which means he’ll play the 2017-18 season on a one-year deal before becoming a free agent next summer. Washington president Bruce Allen detailed the team’s effort to lock up their QB, claiming that they offered him a…
The NFL’s franchise tag deadline came and went at 4 p.m. ET with no new contracts for Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins, Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell, and Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson. If you’re wondering what that means for them and their teams, I can explain.
Last week, amid the Skins’ latest attempt to prove that they are the most grotesque and embarrassing franchise in sports, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that quarterback Kirk Cousins had asked team owner Dan Snyder to trade him. Cousins then went on Adam Schefter’s podcast to set the record straight, only he didn’t…
Another March in D.C. The Skins are trying to humiliate their GM into quitting; the team’s cheerleaders accidentally made a sixth-grade class horny; and Dan Snyder’s generally being a supreme penis. Quarterback Kirk Cousins wants to get off this ride, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Washington up and franchised Kirk Cousins yesterday, which means Cousins is in line to earn a cool $23.94 million in guaranteed money next season—and to count just as much against the Skins’ salary cap. He and Washington also have until July 15 to broker a long-term agreement that has the potential to be…
We’ve illustrated Kirk Cousins’s legendary competitiveness a few times, but the Washington QB may have taken it a bit far today at a charity flag football game when he got very angry and shoved a volunteer official.
Kirk Cousins is a flawed quarterback having a good season. He’s also due for a new contract next year, and he has Washington by the balls.
Skins QB Kirk Cousins threw for 375 yards and three touchdowns as Washington stomped the Packers 42-24 Sunday night. Cousins, who’s on a $19 million franchise tag, made his case on the field for a long-term deal, and then made it again in GM Scot McCloughan’s face:
Of course Kirk Cousins likes Creed:
Four years ago today, Washington agreed to send three first-round picks and a second-rounder to St. Louis for the right to move up to draft Robert Griffin III. Today, Griffin is a free agent, and the man the Skins selected on the third day of that draft is their QB and set to make $20 million.
One of the weirdest things to happen this NFL season was Kirk Cousins’s transformation from bad quarterback to “Hold on, Kirk Cousins might actually be kind of good?” This should be a good thing for Washington, which could use nothing more than to have a functional quarterback fall into its lap after the RGIII…
