ASHBURN, Va. -- Kirk Cousins worked his way up from not being heavily recruited to becoming the starting quarterback at Michigan State. At least he thought he had.Going into Cousins sophomore season in 2009, Keith Nichol transferred from Oklahoma, and it was game on.He took that as an insult and felt like he had to prove himself all over again and win the starting job there, then-Michigan State quarterbacks coach Dave Warner said last week. I think the same things happening right now at (the NFL) level. He had a very good year last year, but maybe people are wondering if he can do it again.Cousins was at his best when he was in prove-it mode in college and finds himself in a similar position as the Washington Redskins new franchise quarterback. A fourth-round pick in 2012, Cousins sat behind Robert Griffin III before winning the starting job a year ago. Cousins is unquestionably No. 1 but didnt get the long-term deal he wanted.Cousins is playing this season with the franchise tag -- which means a pretty good raise to $19.95 million -- and said he isnt lying awake at night worrying about his future. Instead, hes focused on the next step of becoming more consistent and earning a contract and elite status in the NFL.I had a four-year deal as a rookie, but it didnt feel like a four-year deal -- it felt like a one-day deal every single day I was here, Cousins said. I dont think things have changed a whole lot in that regard. Ive got to go out there and prove myself each and every game of every season. When you do that, I think the rest will take care of itself.At 28, Cousins has made the Redskins his team in his own way, less flashy than Griffin except for his demonstrative celebrations in games and on the practice field. He wants the Redskins to be the San Antonio Spurs of the NFL: somewhat boring and without drama but unflinchingly successful.While Cousins aims to get the job done without much fanfare, teammates and coaches see a defiant confidence in him. Coach Jay Gruden believes its at an all-time high but without cockiness.He also understands hes got a lot of work to do and hes not afraid to put the work in, Gruden said. Hes a gym rat, hes a film rat. Thats just what you need to be a successful quarterback in this league.The great quarterbacks are that way in their first year and in their 15th year. Thats the way you have to be at the position, and hes got the mental makeup to be a great one.Cousins believes hes better than he was a year ago -- I dont know how to measure it, but you give me a measuring system and maybe I can tell you, he said. Quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh points to a comeback victory against Tampa Bay last season as a moment of growth for Cousins, who he said has the knowledge of the offense down and is working on different cadences, fakes and targets.Now Michigan States co-offensive coordinator, Warner sees Cousins more comfortable and willing to take off and run with the ball. Just as Cavanaugh believes no quarterback turns pro knowing how to do it all, Cousins remains a work in progress.The good thing about him is hes not content, Cavanaugh said. He sees a lot more improvement to be made, and thats what hes striving for. Being on the bench watching is OK, but theres nothing like getting your reps and making something happen to start to believe in yourself.Cousins threw for 29 touchdowns and a franchise-record 4,166 yards and had a league-best completion percentage of 69.8 in his first season as the starter. That made the Redskins decision to start him over Griffin look like a smart move.Not having to win the job at training camp, Cousins looked more relaxed and appeared to be having more fun.The biggest thing thats changed has been his confidence, running back Chris Thompson said. I think for him, also, its sort of a relief now because he knows hes the guy. At some point in their career, every quarterback wants to feel that because then the nerves sort of go away and theyre able to relax a little bit.While relaxed, Cousins is far from complacent though he can be comfortable in his job status. Teammates rallied around him as he led the Redskins to the NFC East title last season and Griffin is now in Cleveland.Hes the franchise quarterback, receiver DeSean Jackson said. He doesnt really have to worry about nobody on his heels and hes doing everything you ask to do in a franchise quarterback.---AP NFL website: and Wholesale Nike Shoes .ca!

CTV Edmonton also says Pocklington gave a $100,000 cash deposit as part of the conditions of his bail, and that he will be out on bail until his appeal is heard.Jacques Faty will make his return from injury for Central Coasts youth team instead of facing Brisbane Roar in Sundays home A-League clash.The 32-year-old defender hasnt played for the Mariners in over a month because of a knee issue and will be eased back into action, starting with Saturdays National Youth League match against the FFA Centre of Excellence.With a busy schedule coming up, including matches against Melbourne Victory (away) and Melbourne City (home) within the space of three days, coach Paul Okon has opted to err on the side of caution.The Roars a very fit team, you cant have people who are lacking match fitness out there, Okon told AAP.Weve got to get him back up to speed. We dont play again until after Christmas, and we want to give him a game because theres no NYL game in between.Skipper Nick Montgomery (hamstring), however, has been cleared to face the Roar, while midfielder Mickael Tavares (ankle) could be ready to take on Melbourne Victory on December 28.Tavares is currently in Europe seeking treatment from a specialist in a bid to avoid surgery, which would have put him out for the long term, and is expeccted to be back in Gosford by the middle of next week.ddddddddddddThe feedback weve had is positive, and that hes improved, Okon said.But well probably really only know exactly once hes back, and how much training he can do and if hes ready to get back into first-team training.Tavares, Montgomery and Faty are crucial to Central Coasts season as they are among the few players in the current squad with experience.Montgomery has missed the Mariners last two matches and his young teammates have been overrun in midfield without him, succumbing to heavy defeats against Western Sydney (4-1) and Wellington (3-0).Central Coast conceded early goals in both of those matches and despite dominating possession, rarely looked threatening in attack - two things that will have to change against the rampant Roar, who are undefeated in their last five, and coming off a 4-0 thumping of Adelaide United.The only way we can do that is by showing more determination in key moments where you just need to defend, Okon said.
