Five overreactions from Thursday's NFL preseason games
When Kirk cousins is trending on twitter> trade him so he can be a full time starter please — Tanner (@tannervanpet) August 9, 2013
I will say though, if there was ever a time to trade Kirk Cousins NOW IS THAT TIME. — Miles Morales (@Ljay90) August 9, 2013
@MikeJonesWaPo That was the beginning of Kirk Cousins' preseason bid to drive up his trade value in '14. — Joel Corry (@corryjoel) August 9, 2013Not so fast, guys. The smart move is for the Redskins to keep Cousins right where he is. Why? Because RG3 hasn't proven that he can stay healthy. And until he does, Cousins could be in line for playing time if Griffin misses games here and there. He seems to be calm in the pocket and has confidence, which is something any NFL team would want. I'm not saying that Cousins doesn't have the talent to be a starter in this league, but right now he's far too valuable for Washington to deal away. And that TD celebration was just awful, Kirk. Clean it up, please. Children watch these games. 5. Norv Turner has worked his magic yet again! Brandon Weeden" src="http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/08/080813-laces-out-brandon-weeden-LN-G_20130808234603398_600_400.JPG" alt="" width="600" height="400" /> The Browns brought in famed QB guru Norv Turner -- fresh off his firing in San Diego -- as their new offensive coordinator. And look at what happened to the giant question mark known as Brandon Weeden! He completed 10 of 13 throws with a TD toss as he led Cleveland on two scoring drives! Big things are coming! Just stop. Last time I checked Weeden and the Browns play in the AFC North. They have to face the Ravens, Steelers and Bengals two times each. Forgive me if I'm not doing jumping jacks. Let's see how he does in Week 3, when Cincinnati's Geno Atkins is bearing down on him. Or during a brutal November stretch when he has to play the Ravens, Bengals and Steelers in consecutive weeks. If he can get through that and still have his head attached, I'll be impressed. Questions? Comments? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we might respond in our weekly mailbag!
