Kirk Cousins finishes preseason strong, but questions remain | ESPN Redskins Blog

What I liked: Cousins made a few nice throws and good decisions. He stepped up in the pocket once when feeling pinched from the sides, but kept his eyes downfield and hit receiver Ryan Grant, placing the ball away from the defender all over one side. A penalty nullified the play, but Cousins did a nice job here. I like how he responded to a bad first few series, but that's to be expected. Cousins threw a pretty corner pass to Pierre Garcon for a touchdown. Cousins had several passes dropped, which obviously isn't his fault. The one to Reed down the left seam was a pretty pass, but the tight end lost the ball. Each of the drops would have resulted in big gains.

Preston Smith's summer play leads to high hopes by the Redskins | ESPN Redskins Blog

On another play Smith was doubled by two tight ends. But he took on more of the outside one, allowing him to play with more power. The way Smith keeps his base and uses his hips to explode into blockers is impressive. That's how he shed the blocks and made the tackle for a loss. It was just an impressive, powerful stop.
