EAGAN, Minn. — Kirk Cousins’ eyes widen, his shoulders shrug.
The starting quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings’ response to the question — is it annoying that people keep pointing out certain things you can’t do? — offers a clue that Cousins, after seven years in the NFL, is aware, but largely dismissive, of the discussion that’s held in some NFL circles about his game.
Saying what you can or can’t do is, let’s be honest … I mean, I guess I don’t mind it if it’s true,” Cousins told Yahoo Sports this past week with a laugh. “People say, ‘Aw, you know, he’s not Aaron Rodgers or he’s not Patrick Mahomes,’ and I probably say, ‘Well, I don’t disagree, you know? I’m probably not.’ I don’t think that I’ve done the things on tape that they’ve done.
“I guess what may get frustrating is when they say things that aren’t true.”

I love that people talk about this approach of “Oldschool football” as if the ground game is dead in the NFL. Sure, we won’t see teams run it 50 times a game anymore, but the ground game is very much alive, at least for the NFL’s best. Rarely do we see teams rely solely on the pass and win championships. The best ones can do both and really I think that is what Zimmer and his staff want at the end of the day.

I think Cousins is–like he himself has said–a guy that won’t win the game for you by himself.
It’s good that he admits that. You think Cam Newton is that humble? Neg.
Wrote an article a few weeks back that looks over this QB and his skill-set.
