2018 Vikings Season and K. Cousins
I am not a vikings fan (I am a redskins fan) though I have semi rooted for the vikings from time to time (certain games). One of the things I've been watching with interest this year is how K. Cousins would do in Minn. I've watched this guy closely over the past few years in Washington, and my impression of him is 1. yes he plays really great at times 2. he usually puts up pretty darn good numbers for a season ... but 3. every so often (and especially in big games at the end of a season) he plays horribly. I never could figure it out while he was here in DC. I remember the NYGiants game a few years back where in the last game of the season the Giants had clinched and all the skins had to do was beat the giants and they were in the playoffs. The giants rested a whole pile of starters and basically was begging the skins to win -- and cousins choked and lost. Rather than raising his game in the big game as the stars do (like T. Brady), Cousins seems to choke. I was torn about him leaving DC because as inconsistent as he was, he always got you to around .500 ball (8-8) which is a step up from our horror days of being 3-13. Was he worth the money he wanted, probably no -- but QB's are hard to find and he was still relatively young and might improve. That all being said I was kind of surprised the Vikings made a QB switch in 2018 since last year didnt they finish 12-4 or something and make the championship game? Why mess with a winning formula? just curious if there are any vikings fans on this board and what they think of K. Cousins so far. Are you patient or pissed? (by the way the redskins suck -- reaching new lows since 1994).
