Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was a star quarterback for his team during the 2013 NFL season.
The team was a top 10 playoff team.
He is the youngest member of the Redskins franchise.
But the team’s coach has recently criticized him for not being able to put the team in position to win.
That’s why Redskins owner Daniel Snyder says Cousins needs to improve.
“I think he needs to be better.
He’s an extremely good quarterback, but he’s not playing with a lot of confidence,” Snyder said on NFL Network’s “The Herd.”
“I would tell him, ‘We’re going to get you a lot better.'”
Snyder has been outspoken in his criticism of Cousins, who has not been able to make a big impact this season.
“He’s not doing enough.
We’re going on the field, he’s making mistakes, and we’re not winning,” Snyder told ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”
Snyder has said he will take his team to the playoffs if Cousins improves.
Cousins’ teammates and coaches also have been vocal in their criticism of the quarterback.
“It’s a problem with our offense.
He has to be able to get the ball to his receivers.
He needs to put pressure on the quarterback,” cornerback Josh Norman said.
“We’re not having that in practice.
He should be better, but I’m just not seeing it.”
Snyder also said he doesn’t see how Cousins can lead the team to a Super Bowl.
“Kirk has to get his offense to where we want it to be,” Snyder continued.
“The quarterback has to have that ability to be effective.
He can be a good leader, but it’s not there right now. “
What I think we’re going into right now, is Kirk’s time to shine.
He can be a good leader, but it’s not there right now.
I don’t know that he’s ready.”
Snyder added, “It would be nice if he was able to be more of a leader and to be the best he can be.”
Cousins is currently one of the NFL’s youngest players, with a total of 23 years old.
He had one season of eligibility left before the 2015 season, when he became a free agent after being selected in the first round of the draft.
The Washington Redskins drafted him with the third overall pick.
