I agree.. At worst if Cousins is playing horribly and the game is close you can put in RG3 if he feels comfortable. Cousins has proved himself to be a serviceable QB and if he pulls out a good performance who knows what some team with QB needs will pull to trade for him.
But either way Washington wasn't going to challenge Green Bay, San Fran or Atlanta in the NFC. Gotta look out of for the long term.
