Only five quarterbacks in NFL history have thrown for more than 5000 yards in a season, and Kirk Cousins is on pace to hit that mark.
Kirk Cousins is playing right now on a pretty amazing level. He is averaging 295 yards per game and if he keeps it up he will end the season with 5015 yards. Which would put him on a list with some pretty elite quarterbacks.
Right now, Cousins has thrown for 3,540 yards after 12 games. That is pretty insane. I believe the Redskins may have to Franchise Tag him again. If not they are going to have to pay him a TON of money. If I was Jay Gruden and the Skins, I would tag him. You cannot lose, because if he turns back to his old way of throwing picks and making bad decisions, you can always walk.
