Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has finally shaken the monkey off of his back as he is the starting quarterback in the offseason for the first time in his career. He has been looking for any kind of advice he can get and he is looking to other quarterbacks from around the league to do so.
“I’ve called a few of the starting quarterbacks around the league, a few of the retired guys who had great careers, and just asked them what worked for them in the offseason,” Cousins said, via Tarik El-Bashir of CSNMidAtlantic.com.
Cousins didn’t disclose what quarterbacks he actually spoke with, but he knew exactly what he wanted to find out. He wanted to know how they would get into their rhythm.
“What was their rhythm in January, February, March?” Cousins said. “When they went back in April, May, June, what’s their rhythm? What’s their rhythm in the summer? How do they handle family? How do they balance travel and opportunities?”
Kirk Cousins won the starting job just a few weeks before the 2015 season began and he led the Redskins to the NFC East championship. He threw for nearly 4,200 yards and 29 touchdowns while leading the team to a 9-7 record and a home game in the playoffs.
I think it is pretty safe to say that he is ready to lead the team into the future.
