Posted by Chief Concerns' fan Jackson Anderson: Kirk Cousins, buy low sell high method. Who is he. He is the all time Michigan State passing leader. Kirk Cousins also showed me this year that you can come in cold off the bench and rally a team to a 4th quarter comeback. Kirk Cousins Showed me this year that while operating in an offense that does not fit him, aka the "Pistol Offense" which is meant qb runs and option plays. he had a 300 yard game as a pure pocket passer. Kirk also won that game. Might I say this, without Kirk Cousins the Washington Redskins dont get into the playoffs. Kyle shanahan kknows a bootleg type systen that would operate well that helps zone blocking for the passing game and fools a defense and makes you not know whether its a pass offense or a run offense. How do I know this. He was an offensive coordinator under Gary Kubiak in Houston and knew the strengths of Eric Winston. Who is Eric Winston he is one of our linemen. This will allow Jamaal Charles to even succeeed better in th ...

Kirk Cousins does what he often did at Michigan State -- makes plays, ties game. Terrific clutch thrown-in-cold performance. Overtime.
Michigan State faithful Kirk Cousins leading the Redskins to a victory today.
Foles fun fact of the day-- He left Michigan State because he couldn't beat out Kirk Cousins... Need I say more
Well Chiefs dropped another one today. Only thing they need is a first string quarterback. They are out there just have to spend the money to get one of them. Washington drafter Griffin III and they have Kirk Cousins from Michigan State. Then the NY Jets have Tim Tebow from Florida wasn't good enough for Denver but we could use either of them. All around good offense in KC but still need a first string quarterback. Defense is great but they need a quarterback to score points. Next year will be the same unless we get a starting first string quarterback. As one of the announcers said after the game we need Dawson or Montana to come back. Pay a little money and get a quarterback by next year or we will be seeing the same thing happen again.
Michigan State is really missing Kirk Cousins this year. Andrew Maxwell just doesn't compare.

Michigan State may be talking trash about Denard Robinson and the beating Alabama gave Michigan Saturday night, but Michigan State has no room to talk. Mich St may have beat Michigan here lately because Rich Rod was stinking it up. I remember the 2011 Capital One Bowl when it was Alabama 49 Michigan State 0 and Michigan was undefeated at the time. Bama knocked out 7 of their starters and Mich St was playing a 3rd string QB bc Bama's defense sent Kirk Cousins to the hospital. Some people don't have enough sense to not talk trash when they haven't earned it.
Granted we're only viewing preseason games AND the Redskins have Robert Griffin III as their 1st string quarterback, it's NOT a bad thing to have Michigan State grad Kirk Cousins as the backup. He is awesome tonight!

Griffin III and fellow rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins were each nominated for ESPYs. Griffin was nominated for “Best Breakthrough Athlete” and “Best Male College Athlete,” while Cousins — the Redskins’ fourth-round pick in April’s NFL Draft — was nominated alongside former Michigan State teammate Keith Nichol for the “Best Play” category. (Nichol was on the receiving end of Cousins’ 44-yard, game-winning, deflected Hail Mary pass that gave the Spartans a 37-31 win over Wisconsin last October.) If it turns out Griffin III or Cousins won their respective other categories, we’ll have it here on But congratulations to Robert for this terrific accomplishment.

RG3, RG3, RG3. It's funny us as Redskin fans put our whole faith in a man that hasn't taken an NFL snap yet. Then our so called great draft staff drafts another QB right after RG3. Kirk Cousins, *** he made 1 pass that ever counted at Michigan State and that was a Hail Mary. Lord have mercy help me. I can't help it though, die hard till the end so I'm on the bandwagon, RG3, RG3!

Most NFL draft analysts project former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins to be selec
Michigan State wide receiver Keith Nichol will join the Washington Redskins when the team opens mini-camp Thursday, reuniting him with college teammate Kirk Cousins.
Cousins, the Michigan State quarterback many projected to go as high as the second round, was instead a surprise pick by the Washington Redskins in the fourth round Saturday. To add to the challenge, he will compete against Robert Griffin III of Baylor, the second pick of the draft.
Washington Redskins: B Owner Daniel Snyder, general manager Bruce Allen and coach Mike Shanahan decided a bold move was needed for the team to compete in the difficult NFC East; trading two future first-round picks and their 2012 second-round selection in order to move up four spots to secure quarterback Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick certainly qualifies. Grabbing another passer 100 picks later (Michigan State's Kirk Cousins) emphasizes the team's belief that the defense is good enough to win the division (and more) with more help from the offense. The rest of the team's draft was not extraordinary, however, and the lack of future premium picks means Snyder will open his wallet in free agency to keep the team in contention -- but he's well-practiced at that.
Peter King, "Worst pick, offense: Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State." • Don Banks, "I keep trying to discern the master plan, but I just can't see the wisdom of it. It strikes me as the wrong move, at the wrong time, by the wrong team." • Gregg Rosenthal, "The Redskins believe Cousins can be a good backup. That's not a luxury in today's NFL; it's a requirement." • Will Brinson, "Unless the NFL is suddenly going to start using the same rules as a two-quarterback fantasy league, the decision to grab Kirk Cousins doesn't make any sense." • Todd McShay, ESPN Radio, thinks Cousins could end up as one of those coveted backup QBs down the road: "This might be the best thing that ever happened to Kirk Cousins' career."
The Washington Redskins selected Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins with the seventh pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft on Sunday.
A couple of days later, former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins is still just as surprised that he was drafted by the Washington Redskins.
I thought my NFL team was fu**ed up.What about the Redskins? They draft RG3, who I would have LOVED in Cleveland, then draft another quarterback three rounds later in Kirk Cousins from Michigan State ?
How much of a shock is it that the Redskins drafted Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins in the 4th round after practically selling the farm to draft RGIII overall? Lots of jabbering heads are all abuzz about this move. Did the Redskins make a big mistake drafting another QB so soon in the draft?

Last night at the NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins drafted QB Kirk Cousins out of Michigan State, then proceeded to release last years number 2 QB, John Beck. This moves Robert Griffin III up to number 2 on the depth chart, with Rex Grossman keeping the seat warm until RGIII is ready to step in. Will RGIII become the Redskins first long time elite QB in 25 years? (Joe Theismann, could argue Mark Rypien in the early 90's). I think he will. Going with the Shanahan's on this one.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) After Washington made a blockbuster trade to select Robert Griffin III second overall, the Redskins have drafted Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round.
Surprise! Washington gives fans the day's first head-scratcher with its fourth-round pick of Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins, despite already selecting Heisman Trophy QB Robert Griffin III second overall.
Five players who did so much to lead Michigan State's football team out of the wilderness and back to national prominence have been chosen in the NFL draft: defensive tackle Jerel Worthy (Green Bay), quarterback Kirk Cousins (Washington), receiver-returner Keshawn Martin (Houston), safety Trenton Robinson (San Francisco) and all-time leading MSU receiver B.J. Cunningham (Miami). Spartan Nation is proud of them all!
The Redskins put some added pressure on Heisman Trophy winning draftee Robert Griffin III by selecting Michigan State's Kirk Cousins in the fourth round on Saturday.
What’s with the Redskins selecting Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins after picking RG3 as their number on draft choice? Just curious trying to see how the Cowboy’s draft compares to the rest of the NFL East competition. If I were a Redskins player hoping the team would get better, I would be that guy slamming the table for the selection of an offensive lineman with their first fourth-rounder. I guess the Redskins adopted the “best player available” strategy. From watching successful teams use the same strategy and earn dividends, it’s very hard to argue with the Cousins selection. The most likely scenario following this pick is that the Redskins will enter the 2012 season with two rookies at the quarterback position. While the Redskins could cut a fourth-rounder like Cousins, it’s highly unlikely. Does anyone expect John Beck to outperform Cousins? What you really pray for as a Redskins fan now is for Cousins to become something like what Kevin Kolb was in Philadelphia. After watching wh ...
More Spartans drafted: Two more Michigan State Players have been picked so far today in the 4th round of the NFL draft. Quarterback Kirk Cousins was chosen by the Washington Redskins as the 102nd overall selection. Wide receiver Keshawn Martin was nabbed by the Houston Texans as the 121st draftee. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions went after an in-state college kid in the 5th round, picking cornerback Chris Greenwood from Albion College.

So the Skins drafted Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State. Hasn't been 48 hours and Dan Snyder is already dissatisfied with the QB position.
Unless he's used for trade bait, the 'Skins' selection of Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins is a terrible, terrible decision. I can't wait to hear Shanny and Bruce Allen spin this debacle. I wish the 'Skins' portion of the draft had ended after RG3 was picked Thursday night. With RG3, the team doesn't need another QB. The euphoria of RG3 has been replaced by the hangover of Cousins.
In the 4th round, the skins pickup the 8 year starter from Michigan State, Kirk Cousins. Actually like the pick- skins will need backup after Snyder and shanny ruin Rg3
Seven quarterbacks drafted in first three rounds, but Michigan State QB not among them.
After a second round pick that I actually liked, the Browns continue to be stupid and draft WR Travis Benjamin, when other, better WRs (especially Penn State's Derek Moye) are not only still available, but will be later. Also, add this to signs the world may be ending: the Redskins made the best pick (in terms of value) I've seen in the draft so far: QB Kirk Cousins from Michigan State in the 4th round.
The Redskins just ruined Kirk Cousins career. If I attended Michigan State I would write hate letters to the Washington Redskins.
Redskins just shocked the NFL by taking another QB in Kirk Cousins from Michigan State. Tough competition for RG3.
Wow Washington Redskins just took another Qb Kirk cousins from Michigan State we are looking good for the future Robert Griffin lll and Kirk cousins
