it seems Kirk Cousins is now the unquestioned leader of the Washington Redskins.
After going 20-of-29 for 302 yards in a 20-14 win over the Giants Sunday — catapulting the Redskins into first place in the NFC East — Cousins is the key to the Redskins playoff hopes via Dashon Goldson.
“This team is going to win with him,” Goldson said, via the Washington Post. “We only go as far as he takes us. I just wanted him to understand that. As a quarterback, he’s got to be a leader, a little more vocal and take charge in what’s going on on the offensive side and as a team. Period.”
Cousins didn’t have a turnover, and the security of having a healthy DeSean Jackson may be just what Cousins needs to take the next step.
An awful outing next week against Dallas would only reassure us that Cousins is who we all thought he was.
