Joe Theismann made some frank comments in his assessment of RG3 and Kirk Cousins during Saturday's preseason loss to the Ravens. 

“Let’s stop beating around the bush. Kirk Cousins has played much better at the quarterback position than Robert Griffin III has. Now Robert is, basically like we talked about, learning to work out of a pocket. He doesn’t look as smooth and as comfortable throwing the football, I mean, your eyes will tell you everything you need to know. It’s going to be a decision that Jay Gruden is going to have to make, who … Right now, Robert Griffin III is his quarterback. Now, if there was a quarterback competition, it wouldn’t be a competition. Kirk Cousins would be the man I believe he would have to go to because of the efficiency with which he has run [the offense].”

He went on to compare Cousins to Andy Dalton, the Bengals quarterback whom Jay Gruden coached the previous three seasons.
