There will be no QB controversy

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Saturday that the Redskins drafted Kirk Cousins in the fourth round with the intention of "developing" him and trading Cousins for draft picks down the road.

The Cousins pick has drawn media flak due to a phony QB controversy, though Cousins won't even be Robert Griffin III's backup. He'll be a third-stringer, and Rex Grossman will play if Griffin struggles. The Redskins will hope that Cousins' arm gets stronger and he adds some weight while riding the bench. At worst, the Redskins have themselves a potentially quality long-term backup. At best, Cousins will bring back a second-round pick in a few years.

So in other words...nothing to see here. Move along.

Kirk Cousins isn't magically talented enough to flat out beat RGIII in a QB competition, if he was, he would have been drafted in the 1st round with the other QB's. If the team can fleece another squad the way the Eagles did the Cardinals for Kolb, the Redskins could get back some picks and/or a player as early as 2014, which happens to be on of the years the team has no 1st round pick. It's a wise investment. Raise your hand if you want Grossman on the roster beyond this year anyway?
