Prior to his full career in the US Navy culminating in the rank of rear admiral (RADM), David F Baucom graduated with a BS in industrial management from Auburn University. David Baucom’s favorite professional football team is the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins had a respectable if lackluster season in 2016 by finishing third place in the NFC East with an 8-7-1 record. With one game remaining in the season, they were in charge of their own destiny, yet despite having nothing to play for, a surprisingly inspired Giants club limited the high-powered Redskin offense to only ten points and denied them a wild card playoff berth.

Kirk Cousins led the team last year as quarterback and one of the offensive squads captains. He threw for over 4900 yards and a 67 percent completion rate. Together with his 25 touchdown passes and only 12 interceptions, his statistics were good enough to land him quarterback rating of 97.2.

The Redskins will have to decide in the off-season whether to re-sign Cousins for a long-term contract or trade him. They’ll have to be careful with the salary cap, and the Redskins are determined to provide a quality lineup around whoever their quarterback is. If Cousins can’t be signed, backup Colt McCoy will likely get the nod as the starter.
