IMO the QB who most exhibited 'IT' was Joe Montana. Cool under pressure. Steve McQueen cool.
As for opposites, QBs who get rattled, who fold like a cheap suit, who go 3 and out/4 and out, who can't even lead a team to a division crown, Cousins fits like a glove.
Precisely. He's not a finisher.
Cousins is good, not great. Great QBs have many traits but one that sticks out to me is that when you need a big drive late in a game to win or tie their game just seems to elevate. They get even better. Cousins games goes right in the shitter when we need a big two minute drive.
Cousins isn't Joe Montana or Patrick Mahomes----we get it. He is a mixed bag, but he has delivered at times. At other times, he's failed personally. But if you look at all the failures---including those where he's at fault and the rest---many more times he either gets deluged in pass rushers, the routes are slow to develop, no one ultimately gets open, or, inexplicably, we're trying to establish the run.
He has issues. His contract is an issue. But the primary issues are further up the food chain and ultimately lead to the failure of the Wilfs to embrace the era in which they find themselves. Y.A. Tittle and Frank Gifford and Sam Hunt aren't walking through that door, Zygi.
Sell the team---you're the problem.
They may not be walking through the door, but I bet they'd still have better footwork in the pocket.

Defense starts at the corners!
