Kirk Cousins makes strong case for backup job

If anyone was still looking to fabricate for a quarterback controversy for he Washington Redskins, then Kirk Cousins provided plenty of ammo on Saturday night.

Cousins turned in one of the most impressive performances of the preseason, completing 18 of 23 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns against the Chicago Bears. It won’t be enough to push Robert Griffin for the starting job, but it could have given him an edge over Rex Grossman for backup duties.

Griffin will likely see significant playing time in the Redskins next preseason game, but the final game could be another chance for Cousins to shine.
