Recap from 2014 on...

14/15 - Jay Gruden names Kirk starter over RGIII

Clinton Yates/Bohmani Jones - "Racism! RGIII didn't get a fair chance and replaced by interception king!"
Talking heads in DC like Steve Czaban - "all you kirk jerkers out there need to chill. He is sucks!"
Outside DC - "He's average at best"
Fans - RGIII is getting railroaded! Kirk stinks and will throw soul crushing interceptions!"
Mike Shanahan - "KIRK Cousins is a firkin football player! He will be a top 5 QB and you can win a superbowl with him"

(kirk has great 2nd half of year and skins make playoffs)

15/16 -

Clinton Yates/Bohamani Jones - .........
Talking heads in DC - "we need to lock this guy up but not at a ridiculous amount like $20mil per year"
Fans - "He's not worth $20million!"
Outside DC - "His record against winning teams sucks...he's no good"
Mike Shanahan - "KIRK Cousins is a firkin football player! He will be a top 5 QB and you can win a superbowl with him"

(kirk throws for nearly 5000 yards and shatters Redskins records)

16/17

Clinton Yates/Bohmani Jones -.........
Talking heads in DC - "bruce allen is an idiot! Sign the man! We should be about to get him for $25 mil per year" - Steve Czaban "I LOVE KIRK!"
Outside DC - "Jimmy G is far better! Something something Jimmy G!!"
Mike Shananhan - feels smug and kyle drools once he gets SF job

17/18

DC fans and talking heads - "Front office botched this. He should be our QB but we don't blame him!!! Alex Smith is a downgrade easily"
Talking heads - "Vikings overpaid for an average QB" Colin Cowherd "Cousins is OK ..nothing much more..Alex Smith is a WINNER so the Redskins will be better"
Fans outside DC/Minn - "Jimmy G contract is GREAT! JIMMY G!!" "Cousins is sucks! ahahhahahahahahha 80 mil! hahahahah"
Kyle Shanahan - :(

Seems to echo the PFF analysis I saw. Basically Cousins grades above average in deep and intermediate routes, but not as well on the short stuff. A little concerning about his trouble throwing over the middle.
