Kirk Cousins “salty” about a bad practice on Wednesday

It’s good that the Vikings won’t be scrapping the last workout of their offseason program. Their new quarterback thinks he needs it. Kirk Cousins wasn’t pleased with his performance on Wednesday, the second day of a three-day minicamp. “I was pretty salty walking off the field,” Cousins said, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul [more]

The salt came from a third-down red-zone drill during which Cousins threw two interceptions in three plays.
I know it's just minicamp but this has been a concern over his career. Watched a replay of redzone from 2017 on NFLN a few weeks ago. Cousins looked pretty bad and threw a couple of terrible passes in the redzone. I sure hope this is fixable.

From the breakdowns I saw, redzone and throws over the middle are where he struggled the most. Zimm has put a huge emphasis on the redzone in practices over the last two years so he should get plenty of practice at least. The defense is also not surprisingly way ahead of the offense right now. In one 11-on-11 they mentioned that the defense called an audible, Kirk then called an audible, and the defense audibled again. The defense was told to dial it down as they're so used to playing with each other (other than Richardson) much of the stuff is second nature.

Barr also spent time with the DL to work on pass rushing tech since he's so familiar with the defense and didn't need as much time working with the LB's.

I guess that's the benefit of having all your starters back other than a new 3-tech.
