Found this little nugget in an article about the cluster-eff that is the Redskins... "As for the big one, I don’t think the Skins are afraid to lose Cousins, and the reason is Colt McCoy. Is the 30-year-old McCoy a 10-year answer for Washington at the position? No. But he can be what Cousins can’t be at this point, and that’s a bridge quarterback, which is why the question isn’t Cousins versus McCoy in a vacuum. It’s the brass buying Cousins and hitching its job security to his successes and failures, versus renting McCoy while looking for a younger upgrade at the position." Reading between the lines, it would seem that people DO recognize that he isn't going to be a highlight reel QB but he also isn't going to sink a program...of course, we all know that all he does is win games. Would be nice to see what he could do at that level with even a halfway-decent O-line and a chance to play on a regular basis.
