  1. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I honestly think the opposite in a way. I think we need to establish the run and (hopefully) get out to a lead and then we need to dial up some easy, safe throws for Kirk to get some confidence back and hopefully get him into a rhythm. I still think only throwing 10 times in week one hurt him after only having a handful of throws in the pre-season. Obviously, that's NO excuse for how he played but I think that may have been an issue as far as getting re-acclimated to real defenses and getting a full body of work with Diggs/Thielen/Cook/etc.
  2. Week 3: Raiders (1-1) at VIKINGS (1-1)

    Win with shoddy RB play like I've been doing all year, bay bay! (Except week 1)

    It's either him or Joe Mixon!
  4. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    This rule is completely stupid. Not only will is slow down the games even more, there's ALWAYS something that goes on during EVERY play that's not caught live. Holding, picks, chops, OPI, DPI, farts, etc. So now you're telling me they can go into slow-mo and dissect EVERY aspect of a play before confirming it?
  5. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    The play call was fine. It keeps the defense true instead of them stacking the box knowing we're going to run. However, Kirk should have looked at Thielen then Diggs then throw the ball 10 rows in the stands and hit a beer man in the head if neither were open. Honestly, I think Kirk remembers last game vs. Green Bay or even only throwing the ball 10 times last week and how he came up just short vs. GB and wanted to be the hero and prove he's THAT guy. I do think the quote that went something like "I can go in an win a game 54-52 if I need to" was very telling of that. Of course, that's all baseless speculation.

    My fantasy team fully agrees with you.
  7. What might the KSO look like?

    i love when you post..........
  8. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    You get one day to be pissy & hate the heck out of this team after a loss Then Monday it's onto next Sunday.
  9. What might the KSO look like?

    Question........................ The run game is firing on ALL cylinders. Cook is looking like an animal. What and the heck happened to the play-action and PA rollouts that have worked well for us? Did I just miss them vs. Green Bay?
  10. Week 3: Raiders (1-1) at VIKINGS (1-1)

    If I were Zimmer, I would for sure. A "friendly" reminder that on Any Given Sunday, you can lose regardless of the opponent (unless it's Miami).
  11. Week 3: Raiders (1-1) at VIKINGS (1-1)

    Well, the Vikes can come into this one of two ways..... A. Be pissed off and crush Oakland like they SHOULD. B. Let week 2 get to you and play uninspired ball. I wish I could say I KNEW it would be option A but this team has played a handful of those games notably against Buffalo, Indy, and Chicago with a playoff spot on the line. Either way, gotta get Kirk into a rhythm.
  12. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    We're not that far off. This team can still make the playoffs. We SHOULD get to 2-1 next week and Green Bay nor Chicago are impressive. We should have beat Green Bay easily despite a poor defensive performance in the first half and horrible QB play yesterday and Chicago should have lost if it wasn't for one of the worst RTP calls in NFL history. Kirk SUCKED and he SUCKED HARD yesterday but he's not going to suck that bad the rest of the season. There's too much of a sample size to say yesterday's performance IS Kirk Cousins. I think only throwing the ball 10 times in week one hurt Kirk more than it helped the team. He came into week 2 against our biggest rival with only 10 regular season passes. That's only 10 passes for him to work off the rust and get back to seeing real NFL defenses. 10 passes to get into rhythm with his receivers. Is that an excuse to play how he did Sunday? Not at all. There's no excuses for THAT. But I do think it had something to do with it. I just don't see Kirk sucking as bad as he did yesterday for the remaining 14 games. That's a bit of positivity I guess.
  13. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    The first thing I thought when seeing him dive was that he wasn't sure where the sticks were.
  14. Week 3: Raiders (1-1) at VIKINGS (1-1)

    This is the game to get Kirk on track. I know running the ball has been greatly successful two games into the season but it'll mean nothing if Kirk can't get into a rhythm. I'd like to see Kirk throw 20-25 times regardless of the score. Gotta get him going and I think Oakland is the team to do it against before heading to Chicago.
  15. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    You raise good points but at what point do you go in a new direction? How long can you stay on the current path of one good year, one .500 year.....one good year, one .500 year, etc? The Kirk signing was 100% an all-in move by Rick. He gave him an unprecedented contract (at the time) and it's proven to be a horrible contract so far. What if Kirk goes 0 for 3 and doesn't make the playoffs (I don't think that will happen)? Is that just an "Ohh well! We tried! On to the next idea at QB! Maybe we'll figure it out this decade!" Do you think the Wilf's will be pleased $84 million came out of their bank on what might be considered one of the worst free agent signings the team has ever made? You say there's more to a team besides QB. 100% true....but at the end of the day, you do not win in the NFL without one unless you have a historical defense and catch lightning in a bottle. Rick hasn't been able to identify a QB in over a decade and it has honestly hurt the team like it does so many others. Do you fire Zimmer? Do you fire the GM? Do you fire both? Or do we just keep on the track of what we've been doing sine 2014? If Kirk doesn't get it done, I think something has to happen. Whether it's Rick, Zimmer, or both.....if this Kirk thing proves to be an epic bust, how can you go forward with the status quo?
