After Robert Griffin III struggled in joint practices with New England last week, members of the Patriots organization opined to ESPN.com's Mike Reiss that Kirk Cousins was the best quarterback on the Redskins roster.
Reiss specifically cited Cousins' edge in "running the offense, fine-tuned mechanics and how decisively the ball came out of his hand."
Griffin attempted just four passes in the preseason opener, a 23-6 win over the Pats, but we couldn't help but wonder if the footwork issues that dogged him last season have yet to be ironed out.
As well as Cousins played versus the Patriots, though, there is no hint of controversy in Washington.
It would be hard to believe the team would turn to Cousins as the starting QB over RGIII. If anything, this increases Cousin's trade value...
