Jay Gruden has become an embarrassment to the NFL.

As the Washington Redskins struggle through an uninspiring season, Gruden has taken to making excuses for starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. Cousins’ performance during Washington’s 34-20 loss to the Jets was painful to watch.

Gruden ran off a list of factors that may have been the reason for his starting quarterback’s poor play. Wind conditions and having to identify the blitz packages from the Jets defense, were a couple of the unbelievable excuses given. Gruden watched on as Cousins had his fourth multiple interception game of the season. He now has a total of eight picks and only six touchdowns, for the 2-4 Redskins.
