Cousins has shown enough for me to think that he can grow into a very good QB. This is his first year with a new team and that team also has an offensive coordinator in his first year.

I think that the Vikings best road to the playoffs is to win the NFC North and possibly get a #3 seed. The Vikes trail Chicago by 1.5 games and the Bears play the Rams and Packers in their next two while the Vikes play the Seahawks and Dolphins. If the Vikes can pick up a game in those next two, they could be in a position to overtake the Bears in the final game.

Pats had safety Chung fake an injury so BB could get a better look at 4th down conversion by Murray. They then threw challenge flag and Thielen told BB that that was BS.

What is Kirk's record again against teams with winning records as a Viking?

Try this stat on for size...

though stats dont matter...


Kirk Cousins record vs teams with winning record
During his time with the Washington Redskins, Cousins' starting record against winning teams is 4-19 (based on their opponents' final record). Cousins has cleaned up against losing teams (19-9-1) and has fared OK against .500 clubs (3-2), resulting in an overall record of 26-30-1 in the regular season.

I'm a Cousins' backer but the throw to Treadwell was inexcusable.

Also, Elflein needs to figure things out. Getting thrown back into your QB every passing play is not good.

Elf hasn't been what I hoped for. Liked drafting the tough wrestler, but not the football player at all I imagined. How many more years until we get this OL figured out?


2 Guards & Center needed with 1st three picks, IMO.

Not sure what happened to Elf but he was comically bad today.

Then-Vikings coach Jerry Burns said Walker didn’t fit into his offense well and he couldn’t change it for one player. Walker, who averaged 12.8 carries in 43 games with the Vikings, disputes that, saying he could have been effective in any offense if given more chances.

The bottom line, though, is the Vikings mortgaged their future for a player they thought could be the final piece to a championship. The deal was put together by then-general manager Mike Lynn, who died in 2012.

Herschel still owns a house in Edina BTW



Cousins played poorly today but we didn’t mortgage our future for him

Exactly, if he doesn't take the next step, in 2 years we move on.....

Should the Vikes ever risk it again paying top dollar for a QB, I want it to be a QB that has won a SB.

Those usually don't become available, until they are toast.

We could get Tom Brady in a few years, about the time Cousins Contract is done. He's won a few. and he'll only be in his mid forties.

McCarthy was lifted by a Hall of Fame QB.

If someone thinks he can do more with less, that person doesn't know football very well.


He was good initially when he first took the reigns...but got lazy when he realized that Aaron Rodgers can ad lib is way to wins.
It showed last year when Rodgers went down and McCarthy actually had to coach. I don't want him within a million miles of this place as a coach.

He can go be the new coach in Cleveland and continue their suck.
