    We have had Christian Ponder, John David Booty, Joe Webb.. we have seen what the definition of terrible will exactly play out on a football field. :)

    then why on earth would you be complaining so hard over a top QB last season who has been pretty damn good statistically since becoming a starter on 2 bad franchises?

    I think the problem you remember only his good games and think that he's top QB. 


    Watch his game against GB (twice), Chicago, SF, KC (without Mahomes), Seahawks.. 6 games in 2019.


    Bills, Chicago (twice), NO, Seahawks, Patriots.. 5 games in 2018, that were very bad on his part. 


    You don't pay a QB top 5 money to expect slightly above average record. Did you do so with Manning? 


    Look at Tannehill contract for example. They also would pay him 29 million APY if he plays well and stays for 4 years. But, if he sucks, they could get out of his contract in two years. 


    Cousins made sure to get 84 million fully guaranteed in three years with no-trade clause, that pays the same APY amount, but there's no way to get out of the deal and it also constricts the cap space all three years. Otherwise, you could move around the cap hit one year and try to retain some players. Now he gets extended, we either cut him next offseason or we get 31 million and 45 million cap hit in 2021 and 2022.. 


    If we could all get in return worse record than what we had with Case Keenum, is it all worth it? 


    It's not hate on Kirk, he will have earned close to 200 million and could compete with 20 years of Tom Brady's earnings very soon and he has done very well In his career for himself and family. Good for him. Now, as fans, should we or not expect good things in return? How about an NFCCG appearance that Keenum was able to bring? How about a SB appearance? 

    he literally finished the season as a top QB what more do you want? you want a terrible QB take JB then come talk to me again

    I don't get the hate for Cousins from Vikings fans. Is he Good, Very Good, or Great maybe not but at worse he is Above Average and I can argue that he is Good actually stat wise and winning wise. He is definitely better than Average and doesn't stink so I don't get it. star trek slapping GIF - he doesn't get it either being Captain Kirk.

    its seriously crazy lol the dude was a top QB last year no doubt about it yet they want him gone I cant understand it one bit :scratch:

    This thread is about Rhodes, but do want to say real quick.


    Tannehill avg 123yds a game in the playoffs this last year. 2 of which were 88yds or below.


    Tannehill played well, but I dont think he is a better qb than Cousins.


    Hell, he has 56td and 16ints for you in 2 years. 107 rating.


    Definitely gonna have to agree to disagree, this is wild it's almost reversed. Would think you would appreciate him a little more? Now if us Colts fans were complaining about him, that would make sense. We have had great QB's for like 20 years straight. We're of which Cousins probably the best QB to come through Minnesota in a long time?



    fans of both the franchise's Kirk has played for have treated him like crap when all he does is beat out people that everyone claimed was better than him or won them games to being an MVP candidate this year with his great play and stats its actually weird lol

    He beat the Saints last year in the playoffs, you guys are fine with him. You need WR's like us. Agree to disagree is fine :thmup:

    exactly!! the dude would absolutely kill it here with our line!!! I can only dream :Cry:

    I know you would. What do you like about Cousins so much besides that he was a Spartan?


    I think if Cousins was a Colt, he would leave you guys frustrated. He puts up big numbers but he rarely steps up when necessary. 


    You don't like Rivers? Rivers had a Cousins-like year last year -- big numbers but not enough wins. But Rivers is a competitor and he plays to win (though last year, he failed).

    kirk has always been a good QB he gets so much crap its unreal your line is trash and if he could ever play behind a line worthwhile he would continously be an MVP candidate he was this past year so I will never understand the hate by most people its laughable honestly

    Please share your thoughts on Rhodes. 


    Xavier Rhodes is finally a Colt. He was supposed to be drafted by the Colts. Colts fans always liked Rhodes.


    I hated losing Rhodes, but he seemed to regress last season and was beat on a lot of plays. I hope he plays well for the Colts, as he remains one of my favorite players. Can the Colts take Kirk Cousins too??

    please I'd give up rivers and JB

    I agree it is easier.   I was more shocked by when you said "this team could easily reach the finals".   It won't be easy.   They are 5 games out of the 2nd seed, so getting the 2nd seed is going to be very tough.  Moving up at all will be tough.  

    It will be a bummer if they are not able to take advantage of this road that is not more open than usual.  

    I will admit that I haven't watched the NBA (outside of some Pacer games) for many years, so I don't know much about teams outside their records.  Are the Bucks not really as good as their record?



    the bucks are pretty good they just are not as good as say the lebron Heat or Cavs teams

    The talent level may be close.    I don't think it'll be easy for the Pacers by any means.   Even if they do get the #2 seed, they still have to play the games.   

    it's one of the easiest roads they have ever faced imo usually there is some super superior team in our way it really isn't like that for once all the really great teams happen to be out west

    He’s making an educated guess based on what Ballard has both said and done.. 


    For example, Ballard was asked the night of the first round if the Colts were even close to trading up at all.  And Ballard’s response was roughly....  “No, it’s way too expensive to move up in the first round.   I like having all my picks.”


    Does it mean he’ll never do it?   No.


    But it doesn’t seem like a stretch to think Ballard is highly unlikely to trade 13, one of our seconds, and a one next year (more?) to move up to four this year.   

    His actions and his words say it’s not likely to happen. 

    in other words he actually has no idea whatsoever

    The chiefs traded up 17 spots to select a raw prospect out of an Air Raid offense that barely ever works out in the NFL. Nobody knew what Mahomes would become. Love has many of the characteristics of Mahomes so how is he not worthy of trading up for?!

    our fans seem to have forgotten what the value of a QB actually is

    My point in all this is if JB was in the draft this year he would prolly be 4th best QB. 3rd best if you look at him before the injury. So why we trying to grab someone in the top 2 rounds if we already have someone just as good. Let's grab a playmaker at WR/TE or get a dominant 3T. Or hope that Redskins or Bengals do the stupid thing.

    lmao this is comedy gold right here haha

    I think you may be overreacting. The general perception on Gordon from what I have read was that he steadily improved throughout the week and learned the playbook quickly. Looked rough on Tuesday, good on Wednesday, and great on Thursday. Similar thing happened with Hurts. Not saying Gordon is my guy but I don't know if pundits would agree his overall Senior Bowl work was trash. I think worst case scenario his stock stayed the same. 


    Edit: as an added point, Minshew had a bad week at the Senior Bowl last year and still went in the 3red to the Jags. He has won them some games and looks to be their started next year.

    they used the word undrafted about him lol that's pretty bad
