Kirk isn’t a bad WB. He just isn’t good enough to will a team to victory. No team fears Kirk Cousins. He isn’t good enough to have a cap killing contract. So I am happy he’s restructured. I still think he’s overpaid.

But the Vikes were bare assed over a barrel.

He won’t WIN a game with last minute heroics. But he’ll be damned if he loses one for you. He’ll put points on the board. Then, let the rest of the team finish up.

He put the team in position to win via “last minute heroics” multiple times over the last couple seasons… kickers missing chip shots and defensive collapses aren’t his fault. Unless people want to blame him for not spending enough time on the go-ahead drive.

In the last two seasons he has 7 fourth quarter comebacks/GW drives on his record. And that only counts for games the team WON. I can think of 3-4 more that would have fit that category if the defense didn’t piss down their legs (or the kicker could make a chip shot).

Hell, even the Bengals game he drove the team down the field for a FG to send to OT and had the team at the edge of FG range again in OT before Dalvin’s not-a-fumble was ruled a fumble. 🤷‍♂️ They were down 21-7 and 24-14 at different times in the fourth quarter and forced OT.
