When the Redskins drafted a second quarterback in last year’s NFL Draft after they had traded three first round picks and a second round pick to get Robert Griffin III, the sports world collectively ask the question—Why?

Why would they draft Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins just 100 picks after the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner?

The Redskins knew a guy like Kirk Cousins was too much of a talent to let slip. Cousins proved his worth on the field after leading the Redskins to a must-win victory over the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.

What they didn’t know was the kind of leader they were getting off the field too.

Cousins’ new book titled, Game Changer: Faith, Football, and Finding Your Way reveals how he got to where he is and the moral code he lives by.

ESPN Predictions For Redskins In 2016

Coming out of the 2009 season the Washington Redskins had failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season and logged their worst record in 15 years.

Fast forward to 2013 and the Redskins are coming off their first division title in 13 years thanks to the efforts of the 15th best player in the NFL (quarterback Robert Griffin III), the most unexpected record breaker in franchise history (running back Alfred Morris) and a defense that is headlined by three Pro Bowl linebackers.

Predicting the future is not easy (just ask the Mayans that), but over on ESPN they are looking into their “barometer tracking” crystal ball of how all 32 franchises will look during the 2016 season.

While the rankings themselves require an Insider subscription, NFC East blogger Dan Graziano gave a sneak peak at how the Redskins fared.

Here are the results.

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 24, 2013 – 1:45 pm

This week’s Social Media Spotlight is presented by social media intern Jared Ross.

It has been one week since the players packed up their gear and headed home for a few weeks of relaxation and rest with their families before the start of training camp in July. For more information on the team’s first training camp in the heart of Virginia’s Capital, click here.

If you missed last week’s Social Media Spotlight, you squandered the opportunity read about wide receiver Pierre Garcon’s donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, a childhood memory from quarterback Robert Griffin III, Eric Kettani’s transition into active duty, and more.
In this week’s installment, we followed the players home on their first week after offseason activities to see how they will be spending their time away before defending their NFC East title. What we found was wide receiver Josh Morgan and his exercise buddy, safety Reed Doughty’s hiking adventures, a childhood photo of nose tackle Chris Baker, a photo of defensive end Adam Carriker and his “at-home” teammates and quarterback Kirk Cousins’ interesting interaction with a flight attendant.

Case For Moss In Best Slot WR Discussion

After a 2011 season that saw the Washington Redskins finish in last place in the NFC East for the fourth time in six years, change was going to be a certainty.

Although the offense floated around the top half of the league in terms of total offense, it was time to revive the memories of the Super Bowl XXVI winning squad from 1991 that finished first overall in points scored.

Yes, it is said that defenses win championships, but everyone knows that you have to put points on the board to be competitive in the modern era of the NFL—especially through the air.

When free agency opened on March 13th, the Redskins gobbled up two of the best receivers on the open market—Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan. The duo combined to record over 90 catches for 1,143 yards and six touchdowns in their first season in our Nation’s Capital.

While their cooperative effort helped eased quarterback Robert Griffin III’s transition from Baylor University, it was the man who moved over to make room for the twosome that may have been No. 10’s biggest influence—Santana Moss.

Recently, NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal ranked his top-five slot receivers in the game and No. 89 was left off the list.

After crunching numbers on the franchise’s single season receiving yardage record holder, here is a case for the 12-year veteran’s inclusion.

Rosenthal’s top-five slot receivers entering the 2013 season are Percy Harvin, Randall Cobb, Wes Welker, Victor Cruz, and Danny Amendola.
