Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins clear on role: 'RG III's team' - ESPN

Cousins avoided taking a sack and only threw one interception in 48 pass attempts. But he also misfired on a handful of passes in the second half, often because he looked hurried in the face of a rush. "I thought the pocket was excellent," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said.

The overall philosophy of Jay Gruden's passing attack is simple: the coach wants the quarterback to get the ball in his playmakers' hands as quickly as possible. Kirk Cousins showed Sunday that a combination of trust, a quick release and a good sense of timing can make that West Coast derivation successful.

Rambo was a sixth-round pick out of Georgia in 2013. He was waived last week, in part because of his struggles tackling. He was the Redskins' starting free safety at the start of training camp last year.
