Here Zim had his shorts in a bunch regarding Keenum and his "lucky horse shoe"
Cousins turns the ball over way more. At least Keenum could and would (right or wrong) try to make a play when things broke down.
All Cousins would do is soil his diaper and curl into the fetal position.
Keenum had 15 INTs and 22 Fs
Cousins had 10 INTs and 9 Fs
To be correct
Year played with Vikings...
7 INT / 1 FUM / 1 LOST
10 INT / 9 FUM / 7 LOST
to look at the BIG picture...
Cousins has played 78 games - 65 INT / 48 FUM / 22 LOST
Keenum had his issues with INT and FUM, but we gave Kirk the huge 3 year non voidable contract to be ELITE... He certainly doesnt play with a horse shoe in his pocket, nor does he seem to have big balls... I never witnessed his receivers screaming at Keenum either...
Kirk is a stat monster that seems to have warts in leadership and winning big games...
Keenum is a very average player who when surrounded by talent and aided by a lucky horseshoe can play way over his head, but has never sustained such levels.
Both have major warts, neither will EVER win a Super Bowl?
BUT we have Kirk and must figure out how to win with him...
Hou cn spin however you want .... thr 2017 vikes were. vastly different - all the way around, not just the QBs.
Last year, 2 QBs on new teams.
When comparing why wouldnt you use the common denominator of consecutive years on Vikings teams that other than a few OL changes were very much same. Its what the QB did while on our team in consecutive years, not what they did on another team...
but whatever Keenum Sucked in 2018 on the Broncos, but had an exceptional year prior for us and was one game from the Super Bowl... may never have had that again and we will never know...
Cousins Sucked in 2018 on the Vikings, he has been a stat monster but has always sucked in turn overs, game crushing interceptions, failure to will his team to wins... he has flamed out in his one chance in the play offs and is well documented to have never won a big game, much less nearly any game on a National stage...
But next year Im sure he will lead us to the promise land behind a beefed up OL because that is all that was stopping him from beating Chicago and making the play offs this year...
There is no common denominator. Who cares, you would take a perfectly fair comparison and spin it to show that Cousins is the anti-Christ.
