I’m just sick and tired of the way Cousins gets skewered on this site.
The numbers just don’t lie. He is without a doubt the most underrated, most accurate, and probably greatest thrower of a football in franchise history. As a businessman. As a qb also, not bad at all.
No. 30 QB Rating in the final two minutes of halves last season. That's where the rubber meets the road.
It would be akin to a guy that is a very good shooter in basketball who suddenly shoots 23% in the final minute of a game. If you can't make them when it counts, the other numbers don't mean jack shit.
It's the difference between winning and losing about 4-5 football games every season. The great ones excel at it because they are great leaders and in total command.
What if said shooter was quadruple teamed at the end of games but still had to shoot because the rest of his team was in wheelchairs? What does 23% tell you then?
Keep pulling out this number, but maybe tell me who was going to complete a pass in the Tennessee game's last series when the oline collapsed? How about the Dallas game? Oh, and please keep ignoring the New Orleans playoff game for God's sake, because that surely couldn't have been Kirk throwing three perfect passes to win that playoff game in OT.
Kirk is not great. Kirk is not horrible. Kirk is not "worth" his contract. But Kirk is good enough, and the price for good enough at QB is as insane as the market for gasoline in Cali.
The great ones have the ability to create on their own and make everyone around them better on a consistent basis. Those guys win championships and earn a yellow jacket.
So you're a Hall of Famer or you suck? How much better did Mahomes make his offensive line in the Super Bowl? Or is he not good enough either?
I get it, this is your schtick, you're very Trump-like in hyping your very special mind, which is like nothing that's ever been seen. But I believe right above where you cite "the great ones," I concede Kirk is not great. Your Rain Mannish spewing is not worthy of your Beautiful Mind......
