RGIII Third-Stringer – Redskins Name Kirk Cousins As Starter

The Washington Redskins are marking 2015 as the year for change. This means that Kirk Cousins will hold the reigns to the offense while RGIII gets demoted.

According to coach Jay Gruden, who has been outspoken against his “yips” stricken, one-time-star and former starter, RGIII, it’s time for Kirk Cousins to come aboard as the starter for the team.

“We feel like at this time, Kirk Cousins gives us the best chance to win,” coach Jay Gruden said. “It’s Kirk’s team.”

Since January, 2013, when RGIII torn the ACL and MCL in his right leg, which resulted in a playoff loss to a rising Seattle team, he’s never been the same.

Cousins was also drafted fourth in the same draft that saw Griffin come alive and ultimately win Rookie of the Year. Since Cousins has been battling it out for the starting job in Washington, Gruden has said that he’s “taken a giant leap” – notwithstanding the five picks he tossed back in week 7 of last year, of course.

Cousins is no stranger to the Redskins. He played nine games when Griffin was out, resulting in a shabby 2-7 win loss ratio. Hardly something to drool about or get excited over.

Reggie Griffin III is sidelined due to injury and won’t start for the Redskins.

Now, as it turns out, Griffin will be sitting on the bench next to Colt McCoy. Given the propensity for Jay Gruden to mock his former starter, it’s likely that he’s been demoted to RG Third-Stringer.

The day is not done for him yet, if he can manage a comeback. That may come this year if Cousins screws up too much under pressure (which he has knack for doing).

Griffin’s real issue lies in injury, not in lack of talent.

When the stats are compared side-by-side to Cousins’, there is no comparison. On paper, RGIII looks great, which is why he is still considered a possible starter in the future (whether that’s for the Skins or another team).

Given that he’s due $16 million in cap space next year, he’ll likely be traded away to a suitable suitor, or have to accept a lower salary to stay on the team.

In three years with the Skins, RGII has put up 8,097 yards, 40 touchdowns and 23 picks with a 90.6 QBR and a healthy 60.3% completion percentage. Definitely star quality.

By comparison, Kirk Cousins has put up just 3,030 yards, 18 touchdowns and 19 picks with a meager 77.5 QBR and just a 59% completion percentage.

Sounds like it’s Tebow Time (ahem, Cousins Time) in Washington, for some reason. And that reason is all Gruden.

  22. Hello.This article was extremely remarkable, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this issue last couple of days.

  23. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
