The Studs: Kirk Cousins - The rookie quarterback was in the spotlight once again, and he did not disappoint. Cousins was 15/27, 222 and one Interception. He showed every aspect of his game, hitting on two deep balls, throwing strikes across the middle, and showing touch to his running backs out of the backfield. Cousins may still be listed as third on the depth chart, but he made a strong push this preseason to back up RG3.
Roy Helu - Helu has speed; we all know this. This speed was on display Wednesday against the Bucs reserves. Helu just has that second gear that the other backs on our roster are lacking. He plants his foot and gets up-field in a hurry. He rushed 15 times for 90 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught two passes for 34 yards, one being on a nice wheel route, where he exploded down field after the catch for a gain of 17. Helu definitely brings a different look to our backfield.
Chris Wilson - Again, Wilson spent the majority of the game in the Bucs backfield. He was beating his man like a drum, and was harassing quarterbacks and running backs alike all evening. He was not credited with a sack, but he caused at least two that I saw. It's going to be hard for the coaches to keep him off this roster.
Richard Crawford - The rookie was impressive yet again. He showed tight coverage, even when a pass was completed to his man. He seemed to never be out of position, and he also made a nice interception down the left sideline on a deep pass attempt. He plays much bigger than his size, and should at least be on the field for the Redskins in nickle and dime packages this season.
Redskins Defense - They recorded five sacks, three interceptions and held the Bucs to three points. Not much more to say here.
The Duds: I'll leave this one up to you.
So we have seen four preseason games. We have roster cuts coming by Friday. Who did enough to make this team, and who was left on the outside looking in?
