  1. That's fair to assess, but it's making significant progress in improvement, unlike the secondary.
  2. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Jared Goff and Carson Wentz have the highest guaranteed money of any QBs and they are both far more inconsistent than Kirk. Cousins is already only #7 among QBs in guaranteed money. I think you're just way too caught up in the perception. At the time his contract was signed, Jimmy Garappolo was signed by 49ers to a similar contract...and at the time, Jimmy wasn't as developed or consistent as Kirk...and Matthew Stafford, who is more consistent than Kirk got more guaranteed money, as he should. I don't believe your assessment of him being "overpaid" is correct. It's all your perception, not reality. And that's what needs to just be let go of. He was paid an appropriate amount of money at the going market rate for a starting level QB at the time he hit the market. Plain and simple. There are going to be more inconsistent QBs coming along that are going to get paid more guaranteed money than Kirk.
  3. What might the KSO look like?

    That all depends upon whether he warrants it.
  4. Week 10: VIKINGS (6-3) at Cowboys (5-3)

    I never claimed it was. But, it's a still a top 10 defense, even with some of the failures in spots. Which does say a whole lot more about the state of defense in the NFL then just specifically the Vikings. If they were able to play under the rules of 15 years ago, I think it would be an elite defense.
  5. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    That's certainly the truth and is a fair assessment...which is why DT is probably one of the higher priorities in the draft.
  6. Week 10: VIKINGS (6-3) at Cowboys (5-3)

    Matt Moore is a better QB than people have given him credit for. There's a reason why he's been in the league for 13 years. If they had been running Shurmur's kid out there instead of Moore (or even Henne, for that matter), I think they would have missed a beat. And Reid may be a tremendous offensive mind, but his defense is going to cost him if they make the playoffs. That defense is dreadful.
  7. Week 10: VIKINGS (6-3) at Cowboys (5-3)

    I think they prepared the defense in the offseason knowing that was going to be the case. It's why you see different players blitzing at different times. They'll have opportunities in the future to get another 3-tech that's good rushing the passer, but that's not the case this year, so they have to manage that...and I think he's done a decent job doing it.
  8. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Because they wanted deals longer than 3 years. If anything, they got the equivalent of 3 years of guaranteed money, it's just that their teams are on the hook longer.
  9. Week 10: VIKINGS (6-3) at Cowboys (5-3)

    Only certain Vikings' fans are doing so. I haven't heard of anyone else saying anything of the sort. People need to move beyond the contract as it's an old and tired take. It's a non-issue and hasn't been an issue for some time. Next year, Cousins' contract will be dwarfed and may barely be in the top 10.
  10. Week 11: Broncos (3-6) at VIKINGS (7-3)

    I haven't watched them all that much either. I think they've been better as of lately, but considering the pedigree of their head coach (who is in the same class as Zim), they haven't delivered as much as was expected of them, especially with their existing talent.
  11. Former Lions WR Charles Rogers dead at 38

    How tragic. He had such promise, but yet his body failed him over and over again.
  12. Week 11: Broncos (3-6) at VIKINGS (7-3)

    Denver's defense hasn't been all that good this year.
  13. 2020 Draft Talk

    I'm not counting him leaving yet...he'll certainly get interviews, but I'd like to think that he's not going to take a job just to take a job. I certainly think he's smart enough to not go to Washington or the Jets' organizations, especially.
  14. For some, that's likely the best route for them to improve themselves in life, so I'm fine with it, for the most part. There certainly has been a level of exploitation though, which needs to be remedied.
  15. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    He needs a little Tanner Morgan in him.
