NFL media analysis gives rise to faux QB controversy in DC

Welcome to DC, Mr. Cousins.

By Mark Pierce

Media talking heads are paid to talk. That can be unfortunate. Such was the case when the Washington Redskins chose Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round of this year’s draft. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and GM Bruce Allen were lambasted by the media for the decision. Did this mean there was a quarterback controversy in Washington? Inquiring minds wanted to know.

In Washington, vital decisions of government are made every day. None of these decisions are as dissected and analyzed as your average fourth round draft pick. Abduction in Uzbekistan?  Bombings in South Sudan? Ask one of your office buddies about that and you’re likely to encounter the hundred yard stare. That same guy has an opinion about his home team’s seventh round pick, I can almost guarantee it.

So, for anyone embroiled in this ineptly named  “controversy”, allow me to set your mind at rest. There is no controversy. Beck is history, Grossman has another year, at most. He may not make it through camp.  Shanahan is betting the Michigan State product will make a reliable backup and perhaps have enticing trade value sometime in the future.


About ImproperRedskin

I grew up watching the Redskins with my dad. I feel I've always been a part of Redskins Nation. I'm so excited about the direction the team is taking now. I feel somewhat exiled in terms of the skins living in Boston, even though I know there are other fans here. That's pretty much why I started doing this, to touch base with other Redskins fans across the country. There's always something to talk about with the Redskins, isn't there? I want to hear your voice.
