Kirk Cousins will learn

Quarterback Kirk Cousins did not have a good game against the Giants. The young QB threw four interceptions and ended with a quarterback rating of 53.0 for the game.

This may lead some fans to conclude that Cousins will be easy picking for the Legion of Boom. Perhaps.

Cousins will learn. He will study film and he will work hard to correct his mistakes. There is a reason that Cousins has a quarterback gig in the NFL. He is a bright young man, and he will improve.

Therefore, the Seahawks should not assume that they will dominate Cousins throughout the game. Mayb they will, but that should not be taken for granted.
