no but being an MVP candidate is what gets you paid as a player and that's what your biggest problem is with him. the guy has good stats so obviously the team knew they needed to pony up you dont get a player playing at MVP level for cheap unless by some miracle it's a rookie
MVP candidate is not what wins games, Keenum won 13 games out of 17. In one year. After coming in week 2 as unexpected starter for the season.
Cousins has won 19 games out of 33 games. In two years.
Pro Bowl, MVP "candidature", popular fan votes and likes do not matter, how team performed and how many wins they achieved is the only thing that matters at the end of season.
