If RG3 gets hurt you don't want to trot Grossman or Beck out there. Get Cousins in early, teach him the playbook along with RG3, and if something were to happen to RG3, Cousins would be ready to go.
Backup QBs are more important than some people realize. The Chiefs started Tyler Palko last year for FOUR GAMES. The Redskins must have seen that. I think it was a solid pick in case some **** goes down.
Imma agree with V-diddy here.
I don't see what the problem is and I think people are just hungry for controversy. There really isn't one, #2 pick over >>>>>>>>> 4th round pick. Only a complete idiot, which seein the everyday sports fan there are many, would start calling for Cousins if RG3 struggles a bit, especially in a rookie season.
