Redskins QB Kirk Cousins Feels 'Added Urgency' To Be Ready To Start
Kirk Cousins, at least for now, is the starter at quarterback for the Redskins while Robert Grifffin III recovers from his knee surgery.
Whether Cousins remains the starter at the outset of the 2013 season depends on Griffinís recuperative powers. Cousins said Monday he is unbothered by the unusual set of circumstances.
ďI think the approach doesnít change a whole lot in terms of the time Iím putting in or the tape Iím studying,Ē he said at the charity golf tournament hosted by teammate Brian Orakpo. ďWhere it changes is that sense of urgency. You feel that added excitement or added urgency to be ready to go. We donít know what itís going to look like. He may be ready by mid-August. He may be ready mid-September, mid-October. I donít know. Thatís not my job. My job is to get myself ready and when called upon, deliver. And Iím going to do all I can between now and then to do that.Ē
Cousins helped the Redskins to a key victory last season in Cleveland while starting in place of the injured Griffin. So the Redskins are confident they can count on him if needed.
ďI have the long view in mind. I hope and Iím going to make this career. Not a two-year career but a 10- or 12-year career, hopefully even longer,Ē Cousins said. ďSo with the long view in mind, I do believe that as long as I keep doing my job, answer the call when I get thrown in there, Iíll be ready to go and be able to play this game a long time. So Iím not in a hurry to be out there playing. I do believe Iím going to get my opportunities. I understand I have plenty still to work on. I see a lot of blessings in my situation right now in Washington D.C. Thatís why Iím so excited to be part of the Redskins.Ē

Cousins is in a great spot. I think we all agreed that rg3 is going to have trouble staying healthy. cousin should get a lot of starts early in his career. if he does well he can get a starting role somewhere in the league
