Getting excited to see what Kirk can do with this team.

Total Access: Film Breakdown of Kirk Cousins


Burleson makes a great point at the end. Kirk has never been under this type of pressure before. Hopefully he handles it well.

I know I am in the minority here, but I am really concerned with how Cousins will handle what I think is an average at best line. I cant believe that Rick didnt address this line more for the multi billion dollar man, but also didn't shore up good run blockers for Cook (who I still think is the best back in the NFL, far superior to the thug Mixon, that some here wanted us to get). Also, I dont think Cousins is anywhere near as elusive as Case was when under pressure. His release is better then Cases's, but i think hes going to freak out when he sees how bad the pass blocking will be. :govikes:

Last season the Redskins line was a total dumpster fire due to multiple injuries. Their horror show was quite similar to what we experienced in 2016. So similar if fact, they started a familiar face at tackle: TJ Clemmings. In addition they boasted the 5th worst rushing offense in the league, averaging a paltry 3.6 ypc.

Cousins handled it well enough. He managed to throw for 4,097 yards and 27 TDs. against 13 INT.

You might say this is your "worst case." If that is the worst case I think we'll be OK. We had a top 10 rushing attack last year and our defense is vastly superior to the Redskins. We also have a far superior stable of pass catchers.

What's not to like?

All I keep hearing from the talking heads is how Cousins and the WR's need time to get on the "same" page. HELLO! Two years ago Teddy goes down in Training camp. In comes Sam Bradford. And the talking heads were concerned with how the WR's and Bradford would get on the "same" page. Last year, Bradford goes down, Keenum comes in. And once again they are talk about how they have to get on the "Same" page. Now, we have Cousins and once again they are talking about Cousins and the WR's being on the "same" page.


I wonder if the talking heads ever thought that by now maybe the WR's have it figured out?

You are mostly right. But Thelein, Diggs, and Kyle are NOT your normal WR's. They are experienced vets now. I dont think its normal for Case to come in, and put the ball where, imo, the best receiving corps could catch it. There are maybe 5 teams I can think of that could make this happen. And Cousins, being the billion dollar man, had better do an even better job then a back up QB was last year. If not, it will be a longer 3 years then after the Walker deal was. Or God forbid, our Oline leaks, and knocks Cousins out for the year.

Hmm this is the second time now that I have tried to reply with a quote, by selecting the quotes in the upper right corner, and the quote didnt appear. I assume its something I did wrong.

There is a reason I take a break from football after the Draft. This is the time of the year where the sports media feels an irrepressible need to justify it's existence and thus makes crap up so it can talk about football when there is barely anything football related going on. Unless a report comes out saying someone had a terrible injury or something, I'd ignore just about everything you read.

One thing to keep in mind from now until the first Regular Season game is the that every NFL Team, not just the Vikings, wants to keep as much of what is going on under wraps as possible. New plays, how they intend to use people, etc. is all pure speculation until we see it for real on a Sunday where it counts.

So sit back, mix up some beverages, and enjoy the 12 weeks of summer that MN so kindly blesses us with each year. :v):
