Levels of QB:
1) Brady, Rodgers
2) Brees, Big Ben, Wilson
3) Rivers, Cousins, Flacco
4) Who cares
Cousins is not in the 1st 2 categories, because he needs to improve on faking the defense out, and winning in more ways in the red zone. He is at times, a tad too aggressive, needs to sometimes take a sack or throw it away. Make quicker, right decisions in the red zone.
Cousins is very close, and I hope with Defillipo's help, he'll move into the next higher tier, get more early leads, blow more teams out, and be successful in the playoffs.
Flacco is not in tier 3. He won a Super Bowl with a killer defense and that's all that's ever happened. Honestly he is mediocre.
I've come to the conclusion that I'm in an unhealthy co-dependent relationship with the Vikings. Damn it.
