    Any chance we could get Cousins from the Skins?

    He looked great Sunday and if we could get him for a couple second rounders ala Shaub, would you bite?

    he will have 4 years in shannys system. kubiak, if hes still around, will love that. i told my brother in law, watch cousins end up being the next texans starting qb..

    that throw he made on the bootleg was a thing of beauty, in triple coverage he dropped it in his receivers hands, in stride.. i dont know much else about cousins..

    TJ Yates is a fine quarterback. No need for Cousins.

    Matt Flynn looked great in one game too.

    ETA: Probably going to be moved to the NFL Section where it belongs.

    Plenty of time to watch Cousins at a distance before Kubiak needs to make that call. If he likes what he sees then he might try to make a deal. If Yates progresses there might not be any reason to. The moment Yates stops progressing (if that happens) Kubiak will be on to the next guy.

    Neither did a bunch of 49er's fans last year when Smith took them to the NFC Championship game. They thought good enough was good enough. Harbaugh thought different and made a change.

    Schaub is good enough until Kubiak decides he isn't I guess. I'd have a hard time saying that Schaub was so good that the position was beyond the possibility of upgrading.

    I don't think we have that kind of knowledge about Cousins though. Need to see more and there's no rush. Schaub wins a Super Bowl this year and the point is moot anyway.

    I'm not certain if I believe that, but I get the feeling Gary (and therefore Rick Smith) does.

    Short of a "Look who fell into our lap way, way lower than we had them rated" scenario (see Aaron Rodgers), I don't look for a QB to be picked up by the Texans either in free agency, via trade, or earlier than round five of this coming draft.

    I've talked about Cousins during draft time as a good prospect.

    But at the moment, I don't see spending high draft pick for him.

    I'm comfortable with the guys we have now.

    With the contract the Texans gave him, it sure looks like he's their guy for at least another two years, barring injury (knock on wood).

    In the meantime we can look to see whether TJ or Keenum can develop into that next guy.

    If Kubiak don't think highly enough of them, the Texans can look for another QB in the next draft. But from reading Kubiak all this time, I really think he's comfortable with the guys he has as well.

    The Redskins spent a high 4th on him, so I kind of doubt they will accept two 2nds for him now. Trading him creates a hole at backup QB, which they have already needed him once in RG3's first year. I would imagine they want more than that right now.

    It's not a problem... this is just looking into the future as the title says. I'm far from sold on T.J. Yates as the Schaub successor. And I don't have enough Case Keenum/NFL data to make a call one way or another. If Cousins studies under the Shannys for a couple of years, he should be ready to run the Kubiak edition of this offense just fine.

    But as someone else said, we've only seen him in live, NFL action for a game and change. Need more data.
