Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins is working to mesh the physical and mental aspects of his game in the early stages of training camp. He threw two interceptions in a span of three passes Saturday. One was a mental mistake and the other was physical, he said.

Rookie inside linebacker Keenan Robinson intercepted a 15-yard throw to the right, and moments later rookie cornerback Richard Crawford stepped in front of the intended receiver on a throw to the left.

Cousins afterward explained what he learned from the mistakes.

“On the first one, the linebacker just got good depth and made a great play. I need to come down to a check down.

“The second one, the ball was tipped, but I made the right decision throwing to the right spot. The ball just needed to be a little bit more accurate on the receiver.”

Cousins was pleased that he at least made the right decision on the second throw.

“You learn from it and say I can’t let that happen again,” he said. “I’ve got to be more accurate. I’ve got to get back to fundamentals and the kinds of things we’re working on in the film room and out on the practice field every day.”

Cousins tossed two more interceptions Monday, including one that London Fletcher returned for a touchdown.

Injury report

Fullback Darrel Young suffered a hamstring injury. “I don’t know, but it doesn’t feel good,” he said while limping. Offensive tackle Willie Smith twisted his knee and was set to have an MRI.
