nfl jerseys cheap In a sloppy performance, the Redskins (7-6-1) failed to take advantage of the break they caught via the Buccaneers’ loss at Dallas. Veteran safety Donte Whitner’s busted coverage cost seven points on Ted Ginn’s 30-yard touchdown. Vernon Davis was blocked into Kirk Cousins on the first play of the second half, gift-wrapping another seven points when Carolina (6-8) converted the fumble recovery from a yard out via a short pass to Mike Tolbert.

cheap nfl authentic jerseys That drastic change in performance was certainly enough to affect his negotiating leverage with the Redskins. But the team wanted one more full, 16-game body of work on which to base its offers to potential franchise quarterback — something that’s not unreasonable. The good thing about Cousins is that entering the league as a fourth-round pick and spending his first three seasons as a backup taught him plenty about patience. That quality helped bring him this far and can continue to guide him where he hopes to go next. “It hasn’t been an easy path,” said Cousins, who was selected in the same 2012 draft that saw the Redskins select Griffin second overall. “It wasn’t mapped out and I didn’t know what the next year or game would bring — and I’m still in that position now.
