Last quote by Kirk Cousins

We did a good job as an offense. There were a lot of good decisions, a lot of good plays made, a lot of third-down conversions in big moments, a lot of crucial drives where we had to churn the clock and come away with points. So I was proud of the way our offense played today. It wasn't perfect. There were a couple of mistakes, but all in all, we did a lot of good things.feedback

Kirk Cousins quotes

Sep 06 2017

I put that there, just as a reminder when I'm in there that oftentimes the game can be won or lost right here, when you see something or you find a tip or a piece of information that can make a difference. So it was just a good reminder. I thought it was a fitting quote for what that room should be about.feedback

Sep 06 2017

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.feedback

Sep 06 2017

It's really not an office, but it works for me.feedback

Sep 06 2017

And when the offensive staff is meeting – like Monday morning after a game they get together to watch the tape of the game – that room's not available, so I'm kind of homeless. So I go to the tight ends room if it's open, or I go to the O-line room, just try to find an empty room and try to watch film. Sometimes it's the team room.feedback

Sep 05 2017

If I'm available, I'll be there. Or if we're in LA or playing Philly, it is what it is and I'll get there as fast as I can.feedback

Sep 05 2017

She's really supportive, and knew from day one that she would rather let the baby come when it comes and we'll react accordingly.feedback

Aug 31 2017

There is a lot of passion there. When I'm being dynamic or whatever you want to call it – sometimes just being myself – it can come across as, Look at me!' I'm careful about that to a fault. I want to shy away and not make it about me. In doing that sometimes, people don't see who you really are.feedback

Aug 31 2017

I didn't show much movement on tape. To this day, I still don't move around a lot. They wanted to see if I had enough athleticism to be a Big Ten athlete.feedback

Aug 31 2017

Nothing is like football. There's nothing that tests you and pulls something out of you, forces you to depend on your teammates, that really will check you and see if you really have it. Are you really that tough? Are you really that strong? Football takes you to a whole different level.feedback

Whether it's the preseason or the regular season, you just play. If you start to back off, that's probably where you're starting to risk injury. At first I thought maybe I should have given a better effort. I didn't want to extend my arm, so I just kind of threw a shoulder. At first when I looked up at the Jumbotron, I felt like I should have done a better job tackling him.feedback

Aug 23 2017

I don't know if I want to say I feel 'behind;' I think that would create a headline that I don't want to put out there. But would I have liked for Jamison Crowder, Jordan Reed and Josh Doctson to practice every single day from [offseason workouts] to now? Yes. Is it a little bit frustrating that we didn't have that? Sure. But, fortunately, some of these guys have played a lot of football, and I'd like to think that any rust that would be there is going to be gone by Week 1. I'm optimistic. But I think we still need to get the rust off between now and then. I don't think it's fully off yet.feedback

Aug 23 2017

Jordan has unique movement skills. And then because he's often lined up in a way where he's being covered by safeties and linebackers and nickel corners, he creates matchup issues. If you want to put your best corner on Jordan Reed, that's one option. But then now you're opening a door for whoever else is out there – a Josh Doctson, a Terrelle Pryor, a Vernon Davis, so on and so forth. So we're always looking for those matchup advantages and they tend to be in Jordan's favor, just because of how uniquely gifted he is.feedback

Aug 06 2017

Well said. So we can talk about this. This was why July 15 last year was so important, right? Because I didn't have that at the time. So the leverage was not on my side. So those days have come and gone, but those days did happen, OK? I could have been playing on my rookie deal that last year and something could have gone south, and I would have lost what would have been a great opportunity.feedback

Aug 06 2017

I applied them as a 17-year-old, when I broke my ankle as a junior in high school.feedback

Aug 06 2017

And so I want to build my life on the foundation of the rock, which is my faith. And fortunately, I have years of experience going back to my recruiting process in high school, five years at Michigan State, now coming up on my sixth season in the NFL ... you don't have to look any further than when I was drafted here and everybody saying, It's a dead end, why are you here?feedback

Aug 06 2017

I remember on draft day, talking to Kyle Shanahan, and him telling me, The best-case scenario for you is, you play well in the preseason and we can trade you. That was the plan -- support Robert, help him flourish and play well enough in the preseason that they could get something for me in a trade.feedback

Aug 06 2017

That was Reason No. 1, and there's other ways you can protect yourself, through insurance policies and things like that, where you have answers if the worst does happen.feedback

Aug 06 2017

If I put my confidence in a contract, or I put my confidence in money or in the security or in whatever I think the NFL can give me, it is a foundation of sand that is shifting, and it's not a healthy way to build your life. I want to build my life on the rock. I want to build my life on a sturdy foundation. And that's why I say, at the end of the day, if I'm making this decision about fear or about money, I am basing my life on the wrong things. And eventually -- maybe not now, but five, 10, 20 years down the road -- that will come back to haunt me.feedback

Aug 06 2017

I've got to play well.feedback

Aug 06 2017

A lot of it goes back to, these contracts are not baseball contracts; they're not basketball contracts. As a result, you're not really signing a five-year deal, you're not really signing a six-year deal. You're signing a two-year deal, and then there is an obligation for several years after that. And that just didn't sit well with me, and I'm better off, if those are my options, I'm better off signing a one-year deal and then having freedom.feedback

Aug 06 2017

And I just didn't feel at peace about going to either of those schools. And I said, Something's got to come through, because I just don't feel good about these decisions,' and Michigan State offered in the 11th hour, and even before they offered, I visited the school and it felt right. And much the same way right now -- I just didn't feel at peace about it at this time, and I wanted more time to pass.feedback

Jul 18 2017

I felt I needed more time. I want to get more information about the organization. There have been a lot of chances since the end of last season. I want time to help make this decision.feedback

Jul 18 2017

I've been called Kurt my entire life. I remember having different teachers and instructors who would call me Kurt. It doesn't matter. It's not a big deal. Trust me, it's probably not as big an issue as some make it out to be.feedback

Jul 18 2017

One narrative is if I don't sign a deal this July, I won't be here beyond this season. I don't believe that to be true.feedback

Jul 18 2017

I understand where they're coming from. In his position they have to do that and be clear where the offer was and that they did their part. It's a great starting point. It's a fair offer. I respect and appreciate Bruce's approach. He communicated to me that they need to let the story be known and I said I totally understand that. I knew something like that was coming out. It didn't offend or bother me.feedback

Jul 18 2017

I believe wisdom is never impatient. Ultimately this decision is not about anything more important than my faith. I'm going to trust in the Lord's plan for my life.feedback

Jul 18 2017

It's gonna come down to how I play. If I don't play well this season, it won't matter.feedback

Jul 18 2017

If the best I can get is a two-year deal [the guaranteed portion of the Redskins' long-term offer], I might as well play on a one-year deal and give myself some freedom on the other side.feedback

Jul 18 2017

When you look around the league and you see quarterbacks, great quarterbacks, they nearly all played for only one team. And the ones that haven't, it really wasn't their choice. It was usually the situation dictated that they had to move on, but that wasn't their preference. So I'm not different. I would love to be with the Redskins long term and that's why I think that there's still a lot of hope that next offseason, when the season ends, the Redskins are going to have I think about two months to be the exclusive team that I can talk with. ….feedback

Jul 18 2017

Would be different than what maybe it appeared public perception was.feedback

Jul 18 2017

It was going to need to be the right situation and the right terms. Again, I think the franchise-tag rules made it tough to get those right terms.feedback

Jul 18 2017

There have been a lot of changes in our organization since the end of last season, and so I want to allow time to help make this decision. I believe wisdom is never impatient, and so I think it's smart to slow the process down and to be patient and to allow things to play themselves out, to gather more information. And so I want to make the best decision I can. And being that in most NFL situations this is the only year that's promised to us, anyways, I don't feel a whole lot of extra security by having a long-term deal. So the one-year deal didn't really scare me.feedback

Jul 17 2017

There's just so many positives to discuss – love my teammates, I love playing with these guys – so I don't need to look elsewhere.feedback

Jul 17 2017

I just want to chase excellence. I don't know if it's something that's taught, or it's wired into you, but being mediocre just doesn't sit well. And just the chase for excellence, the pursuit of excellence is something that is wired into me, and that really is all the motivation I need. But then when you think about I've got a wife at home, I've got a baby on the way. You know, there are a lot of reasons you want to be successful.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I think at times I have to be careful not to stick my foot in my mouth and not to have the pedal to the metal at all times, because that can hurt me as a quarterback. So I try to be very measured in interviews and be careful what I say. I've grown tired of a three-second quote being taken out of context and being made [into] an entire headline. So I've tried to tread very lightly with what I say.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I'm still reacting to it in the sense that I don't fully understand the situation. I don't know what took place, I don't know why it happened. And some of the things I do think I know, I don't even know if they're true or not.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I love this organization and want to see us get back to those glory days that they had with Coach [Joe] Gibbs in the '80s and early '90s. And I want to add to that great history. There's really no reason to want to look elsewhere. It's a matter of wanting to be where you're wanted, and I think that's what all of us want – not just in football but in any walk of life.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I want to be where I'm wanted, and that's what I've said all along. When a team is willing to step up and commit to me fully for the long haul, then why would I want to be anywhere else? I mean, this is an incredible fan base. It's one of the top five fan bases in the history of the NFL. It goes all the way back to the early 1930s. There's three Super Bowl trophies, there's multiple Hall of Famers, there's high character players still living in the area – Darrell Green, Art Monk, guys that we can learn from.feedback

Apr 19 2017

The nature of this league is such that it's gonna have to be okay. Many players are told, you're gonna need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. That's the way this league operates. … And believe me, there are far greater challenges in this league than the situation I'm in. I mean, there are guys getting cut, not knowing where they're going to have move their families, not knowing where their next job's going to be. That's a much tougher situation than where I am. So I feel very fortunate and look forward to the opportunity that I have in Washington.feedback

Apr 19 2017

When you know my story, this has sort of been the narrative for me. That has been a part of my story. So to say does it bother you, does it gnaw at you? You know what, I've learned to accept it as part of my life and the way things have gone for a long time. This isn't Chapter One for me, this is Chapter 10 or 11, where I've said 'here we go again, this isn't brand new.feedback

Apr 19 2017

It doesn't feel like I can map anything out. I've never felt that way. I've never felt comfortable, and I think that's a good thing to have. You don't have any entitlement. And so I'll just play it out and see where I'm at. I know that every week it feels like a proving of myself, and that's okay.feedback

Apr 12 2017

You know, we saw Brock Osweiler signed a four-year deal last year in Houston and suddenly he's with Cleveland after only one season. So I don't see these long-term deals meaning a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. As we know this league is so much week to week and year to year, and that's why I'm comfortable just playing on a one-year contract.feedback

Apr 11 2017

I haven't heard anything. I'm not expecting anything to happen. And I'm looking forward to getting back to work with my teammates. The team would need to make that decision and say that this is a guy we're going to commit to in the long haul. I'm very comfortable playing under the franchise tag. The ball's in the team's court. I'm under contract, am comfortable playing under the contract I signed.feedback

Mar 14 2017

That's not the ideal time, but we'll find a way to make it work.feedback

Mar 14 2017

We'll keep our fingers crossed and see what happens. But there's no doubt we'll be looking at the schedule the first few weeks of the season to see where we are. Hopefully it's a home game. If it's an away game hopefully it's somewhere like Philadelphia or New York and not too far away.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I don't know how I want to handle it. I certainly want to be there for the birth of my first child.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Christmas

They'll cut you on your birthday, they'll cut you on the day your child's born, they'll cut you on Christmas Eve, so you just never know what's going to happen. That's not the ideal time, in the middle of September, but we're going to find a way to make it work.feedback

Mar 14 2017

The season is half of the year, so you're bound to eventually have a kid during the season. I've had some teammates who have gone through with this, and whether it was inducing the delivery or just being fortunate, they've been able to find a way around the game. We'll see. We'll keep our fingers crossed and see what happens, but there's no doubt that we'll be looking at the schedule the first few weeks of the season to see where we are. Hopefully it's a home game, and if it's an away game hopefully it's somewhere like Philadelphia or New York that's not too far away.feedback

Mar 14 2017

We'll see as we get closer, but we're excited and ultimately just thrilled that there's a new life on the way.feedback

Mar 14 2017

It's part of the deal playing in the NFL, you kind of expect this.feedback

Jan 12 2017

Really happy for Sean McVay!feedback

Jan 01 2017

This isn't my first time dealing with this. Tough times don't last; tough people do, right? I sound like a broken record, but I'm going to keep saying that until I retire.feedback

Dec 29 2016

We understand what's at stake, we're all professionals. We want to be a mature football team and we know to do that we've just got to focus and take care of our business and let the chips fall where they may.feedback

Dec 20 2016

We didn't play well enough to win. Just didn't make enough plays.feedback

Nov 25 2016

I was a little surprised. He can't watch, he wants to play.feedback

Nov 25 2016

We pulled within striking distance a couple of times, but the way Dallas was able to come back and score says a lot of how good of a football team they have and why they're leading out division.feedback

Nov 24 2016

The way Dallas was able to come back and put points on the board in those situations is part of the reason why they are such a good football team. As an offense, whenever we got the football, it was pretty much the same. Move the football, put points on the board, make good decisions and manage it well.feedback

Nov 21 2016

It's great to be playing the way we're playing, and it's just a matter of doing it again this Thursday against a very good football team.feedback

Nov 21 2016

We're feeling good, but at the same time it's a short week and we're playing one of the best teams in the NFL on Thursday.feedback

Nov 21 2016

When you watch the film, we felt like there were plays there to be made that didn't get made. I think tonight you saw what we felt we were capable of doing last January and just didn't get it done.feedback

Oct 30 2016

It definitely feels more like a loss than a win, because we moved the ball so well and had so many opportunities to win.feedback
