I'm pretty confident it can be blamed on the knee. His throwing motion has looked off. Check out these two youtube videos on post patterns.

Look at the 5 second and 1 minute marks of this post pattern to Hankerson earlier in the year. Watch his plant foot, he keeps it in contact with the ground until well after the ball is released.

This one is from yesterday. Watch how he lifts his right foot off the ground before the ball is released.

I agree. I truly believe Cousins would have made a difference. You can't judge him on that last possession when the Seahawks had their ears pinned back and there was no threat of a run.

One weakness that RG3 needs to work on, injury or not, is what Wilson does very well; looking off receivers. That INT was thanks to the safety reading his eyes. Of course it doesn't help that the route had no receivers on the other side of the field.
