the vikings look worse with cousins

 

He was never a good fit. Fans are enamored by volume stats -- 4000 yards, 30 TDs-- but don't appreciate the little things that help teams win championships. Cousins has never been a winning QB. He throws a pretty ball but everything around him has to be right for him to succeed. He does not win when his teams need him most. In 2016 (his best season), he had a chance to get Washington into the playoffs with a win in Week 17 -- he had the worst game of the season... Our  OL was just as bad last year but Keenum had a way of evading pressure. Cousins was a huge upgrade from Keenum talent-wise, but the continuity and chemistry with Keenum may have helped us win more games than the upgrade at QB.

 

It is a disappointment.

    • i dont think Blackmon even tried to get reinstated, while Gordon did every time   i dont know anything about Smith 
    • I can just see those sweeps being handed to P Campbell very soon. Also using him as a decoy on those should create some nice runs and play action.
    • Dave DeGuilmo (sp?) was fired by the Pats after two seasons that the Pats viewed as unacceptable from their OL.    If you look at his resume',  he doesn't seem to stay anyplace too long for whatever reason.   The coaches we have have good to great resume's...    OL play is always the last unit to come around.    This is not a surprise.    Give it a little time.     Certainly more time than two pre-season games....  
    • Offensive line play is almost ALWAYS the slowest unit to come around.    It's almost always that way.      Compound that with having a new OL coaching staff teaching new techniques and this explains the slow start out of the gate.   This will take some time.   The idea that Mudd should not have been brought back because the game has passed him by............       is comical.     And not in a good way.      
    • 40 time was 5.04. that's pretty slow in terms of 40. doesn't mean he can't run a crisp route and use his body to get open. "fast" is not a word to describe hale though. he catches and blocks well.   besides his vert 33.5, the rest of his measurables at the pro day were pretty bad.
