Washington Redksins head coach Jay Gruden is firm in his belief that the team is better at quarterback right now than they were last season.
Right now, their starting quarterback is veteran Alex Smith, who was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason.
Last season, their quarterback was Kirk Cousins, who recently inked a mega-deal with the Minnesota Vikings to be their new signal caller.
Gruden said this week that the Redskins are “without a doubt” better off at the quarterback position.
“It’s not one thing, it’s everything. It’s the entire body of work,” Gruden said, according to ESPN. “He’s very good at the intermediate ball. He’s good with the quick game. He can run zone reads, the [run-pass options]. Very exciting. … The ability to ad-lib, make plays that aren’t there and keep plays alive.
Coaching him for the first time will be exciting because I don’t think there’s a limit on what he can do. He has all the things you want a quarterback to be able to do.”
Clearly Gruden has to believe in the current path that the team is on, but it is also no surprise to see him take a shot at Cousins’ tenure, which became a drama-filled situation that carried on for far too long.
