Cousins when asked about being on pace for 5k yards and career high in TDs:
These questions are tough to answer because it’s just not where my mind is at on a weekly basis,” Cousins said. “It does me no good to answer that question, to talk about that. I want to focus on the Arizona Cardinals, trying to win any way we can. If I throw for zero yards, throw zero passes and we win, we’re doing our job as an organization, as a team and we come in here on Monday happy. Certainly that doesn’t tend to happen, you do tend to throw the ball and stats can give you an indication of how a player’s playing but it does not tell the whole story.
Dude is often accused of putting up numbers but not wins.
In the small sample size I’ve seen,
Dude puts up big numbers, by trying to win.
First Viking QB I’ve seen who looks the part since ‘09 Favre and early Culpepper.
Amazing to think I tried to hope Ponder and Jackson would some day get “it”
Cousins has “it”
Couldn’t agree more Murf...
Cousins has surprised the hell outta me, stands strong, is accurate downfield, and has more pocket presence then I imagined.
We’ll see what kinda heart he has going forward in the big moments, but he is passing every test I had for him excepting the Bills game.
He's re-affirmed and if possible is better than what I expected. He's consistently looked liked Bradford in the NO game (amazing throw after amazing throw - except of course the Bills game).
The heart he showed in the GB and Rams games, I no longer doubt it.
When WAS traded for Alex, and it was a certainty that Cousins would hit the market, I knew Mike Shanahan was a huge backer. Reading what Kyle and McVay said about him convinced me. Easy to ignore/dismiss the noise from WAS FO and Gruden.
Speaking of Smith, he isn't exactly lighting it up for Kirk's old team. Averaging 260 yards and 1 TD per game.
Looked awful Monday night against a NO defense that hadn't been playing that well.
We're seeing just how QB friendly the Chief's offense is.
Smith must be missing it terribly.
