Kirk Cousins isn’t Superman

Can we stop with all the talk about Kirk Cousins being better than RGIII? Everyone can have a bad day, but tonight Cousins had one for the ages. I think he’s on four interceptions now. I’ve lost count.

Of course, his offensive line blows, so his fans can offer up some excuses. But Cousins has been ordinary when teams have had a week to prepare and game plan for him. He has some talent, but he looks like all those other backup quarterbacks who can come off the bench and play well at times, but then has some trouble when a defense is ready for him.

I know – RGIII hasn’t been that good either, so some of the talk about Cousins has been justified. But now that he’s been embarrassed on national television with his head hanging low, let’s see just how good he is. With Seattle and Arizona coming up on the schedule the next two weeks things won’t be getting any easier.

Meanwhile, the New York Giants suddenly look like a football team. They have a defense, and Eli Manning is learning the new system. Don’t count them out yet.
