It's early, but it's time to put it out there. How many more two-minute blunders will we need to see from Cousins before the coaching staff goes into self-preservation mode and starts Mond?

I think the Zim/Spiel regime are already in self-preservation mode (or should be) with all the 1 year vet signings that leaves some big questions about 2022. There going for broke this year in order to get more job security so i don't see Mond seeing the field until 2023 cuz Cousins contract next season will be tough to move.

I say that Mond starts on November 14 against the Chargers. The Vikings will be 3-5 or 4-4 and coming off a couple of bad losses. With the defensive ends he meets in the first half of the season he could even be hurt by then.

My second choice is after four games. If the Vikings lose to the Bengals out of the gate, it's entirely possible they start 0-4.

What were Mond's #'s the last 2 minutes the 1st and 2nd half of games?

I heard once it's important.

Love the thought Mark!

I'm guessing Next year is the year of the Mond.

Seems silly not to have an option for 2023 because that is when Cousins' current contract runs out.

My definition of Kellen Mond Starts for the Vikings is that he is legitimately our #1 QB. Not an injury or we wrapped up home field advantage starter. I'm the one who answered never.

With a bad Oline Cousins has only missed ONE game in his time with the Vikings. He is durable and dependable in this regard. Zimmer is slow to start rookies. So he will be slow to start Mond, who has ZERO experience over Cousins who has years of it. and Cousins isn't the catastrophe you make him out to be. He could be better especially in 2 minute situations as you suggest, but in the end Mond doesn't see the field this year.

And likely next year either if they don't find away to get rid of Cousins before then.

And that was the final game of the season where we sat Thielen, Diggs and Cook as well.

Its the only game Cousins has missed in his 6 years as a starter.

Nothing it guaranteed, but he's been very durable and dependable despite horrifically bad Olines in front of him here and in Washington.

And with Zimmer's anxiety about starting rookies unless he has no choice.... There is no way Mond sees the field as long as Cousins is standing upright. A very likely scenario considering history to this point.

According to Kellin Mond's dad, the Texans were going to draft him at 67. Mond got a call from his agent, saying that the Texans planned to draft him at 67. A few minutes later Mond got another phone call. Everyone assumed it was Houston. Then he hung up and said ‘I’m going to the Vikings.’

Interesting if true. I'm intrigued by Mond's potential and he is a lot more mobile than Mills.

Glad Sweens posted the article. I believe it, especially seeing that Mond went right before Mills. That two teams that had Mond rated higher

Agreed on the mobility part. It seems the picture over the last 10 years is settling into you better be a stud with pocket presence if you don't have very good mobility or have some wheels. Not an RG III runner, but with the ability to do damage running if there are no legit passing options. Looks like Wilson, Mahomes, and Mahomes are the torch bearers. Via some stats, Mahomes runs about 1/3 less.

Interesting to know that the Texans also liked him better than Mills.

The Texans aren't exactly the gold standard.

In fact quite the opposite

It's far from just Brad. The way I look at it is that this thread could have a roach motel effect on the Cousins bitching.

I think it's more a case of being a place for Cousins bitchers to congregate.

We drafted a quarterback in the third round. It's only reasonable to ask the question. It's not like our current guy is a perennial all-pro with sensational leadership qualities.
