WASHINGTON — Has Kirk Cousins missed a few open receivers this season?

Sure he has. Sure he has.

But the Redskins can’t dwell on that, says receiver Pierre Garcon.

Garcon was asked by Grant Paulsen after Sunday’s 31-20 win over the Browns, a game in which Garcon hauled in four catches for 39 yards, if they’re leaving fewer and fewer plays on the field each week as they find their offensive groove.

“I mean that’s hard to say,” Garcon said. “Every play, somebody’s open. But, you can’t really dwell on it. You just have to learn from it.”

“You know, if you go back and watch it,” he said, “I’m sure you’ll be like, ‘Oh, we should have did this. Should have did that. We should have thrown it here.’ Somebody’s always gonna come back and say, ‘I was open. He missed me,’ so you can’t really focus on that because every play, somebody’s gonna be like, ‘Yeah. I was open. We missed that play.’ But as long as we’re moving in the right direction and taking a little bit more than what the defense is giving us then we’ll be all right.”

Garcon, who becomes a free agent after the season, has caught 17 passes for 174 yards and no touchdowns, and ranks fourth on the team in targets with 25, behind fellow soon-to-be-free agent DeSean Jackson (26), second-year receiver Jamison Crowder (27) and tight end Jordan Reed (34).

“We’re headed in the right direction,” Garcon said of Washington’s 2-2 start.”I wish we were 4-0, but football is always going to give you some things to work on and that’s why we are happy with where we’re at.

“But we’ve got a lot of potential and wish we were better, but we’ve still got a long way to go.”

  1. I wish Pierre Garcon noting but the best, He comes to work day in and day out. He plays hard, leaving it all on the field. He tries to get 6 every time he touches the ball. He goes across the middle without out fear and Kirk would set him up from time to time but he takes the hit, wont say nothing wrong about his QB and on to the next play. I hope we can get him more evolved this year. Get him some TD’s and keep him next yr. Kirk can’t do it without a supporting cast, IMO
