1) Your own post that made you think I "had no idea what I look at with a QB" was prefaced with it being an opinion from 2017. Not today, but at the end of the season when you yourself had that opinion. Yet you ripped it anyway. That is why it was so damn funny.
I discussed Lamar Jackson pre-draft and Case Keenum days after the NFC championship. Opinions have drastically changed on both of them after seeing them play in 2018. No less I wanted Cousins when I found out he was going to be a FA. I just wasnt sure if we would actually pay the money or not. So take it however you want, but opinions change. Especially over a year and a half span.
2) How have you watched an entire season of Jackson in the NFL?
I have the NFL ticket and 5 mounted TV's in my finished basement. I have the Vikings on the 55", and then the redzone channel and 3 other games on the four 32" TVs. I am also in 4 dynasty fantasy football leagues. Two of which are over a $300 buy-in. So yes, I can just about guarantee I probably watched Lamar Jackson along with other teams more than most members on here, including you. I have always said, I follow the NFL just as close as I do the Vikings. When you are in that many fantasy leagues and have 4+ games on TV at a time on Sundays, you cant not
follow other teams closely. Not trying to toot my own horn by any means but I'm practically obsessed with the NFL and the Vikings.
3) Can you provide some examples of me contradicting myself? If I have done that, I would like the opportunity to address it, but you just make the claim and move on, without providing evidence.
You're contradicting yourself by who you are defending and who you arent defending. You're complaining about Cousins record, fumbles
For example: You say Kirk Cousins is "horrible at protecting the football" but sit there and defend Lamar Jackson when he led the entire NFL with 15 fumbles in HALF the games Cousins played. You give this excuse and that excuse for why certain QBs fumbles but they dont apply to Cousins. You're defending Jackson but ripping Cousins.
Or defending Teddy or Jackson as a passer/decision maker but complaining about Cousins' but are now saying you think he's an above average passer. Teddy and Jackson are not good passers. And Jackson is someone that will never be a good passer. But since his coach had confidence in him, you think he will be? Pretty sad if you believe that. And I dont care if you just said you thought Cousins was an above average passer. For a guy that throws for 25+ TDs and 4,000 yards every year, he better be an above average passer in anyones book. But you still complain about different areas of his game as a passer. Go back to the game chats, you flooded them complaining about throws. You're defending Jackson/Teddy but ripping Cousins.
Or talking record with Teddy (when he was literally carried one season by an elite RB), something Cousins never had the luxury of. You know just as well as anyone, Teddy was carried by AP. But you tried to defend how Teddy was a good QB and wasnt carried by AP. He literally couldnt hold a stick to Cousins as a QB. You're defending Teddy Bridgewater but ripping Kirk Cousins.....
Or that you bring up Jackson's record and rip Cousins when you paid zero attention to who Jackson played in those 7 games starting. 1 team with a winning record. Cousins played 5 teams with a winning record plus Aaron Rodgers in his final 7 games. Jackon's 7 games consisted of Cincy (30th in points allowed), Oakland (32nd in PA), Atlanta (25th in PA), KC (24th in PA), TB (31st in PA), LAC (8th in PA) and Cleveland (21st in PA). So way to go Lamar, you "beat up" on all the pathetic defenses around the NFL and went 6-1 because of it (and still had terrible passing and fumble numbers). I could just about guarantee Cousins puts up the same record with that schedule. You're defending Jacksons record (paying no attention to schedule) but rip Cousins' record when he played as many playoff teams over the course of the year as Jackson did regular season games (7).
Or tried to compare Case to Cousins by record a while back. And dont consider Case's cupcake schedule, who he had at OC, how the OL played, how the D was #1 in the NFL, etc. Just.....record. Like some have mentioned on here, that's like saying Gary Cuozzo is a better QB than Fran Tarkenton in 1972 because he went 16-4 in two seasons with the Vikings and Tarkenton went 7-7 in his first year "with the same roster".
This is my point. All these excuses you make up for Jackson, Teddy, Case, etc dont ever apply to Cousins in your book. You love defending other QBs when someone on here calls you out but will respond immediately to someone that is defending Cousins saying how they are wrong.
4) Can you provide a quote where I say something really bad about Cousins? Apparently I have been incredibly hard on the guy, and I would like to see where I have unfairly attacked him.
I hope you didnt just ask this....
5) I admit I do go overboard when I know I am right. Did the same thing with Bradford on Rubechat, and with Keenum, when people, including you apparently, felt he had proven he was a viable starter in the NFL. It is hard for me to let things go when I am right and others are so very wrong, but it is an incredibly slow part of the year for football, and what else is there really to talk about?
lol you have wayyy too much confidence in yourself and your opinion. You might want to re-evaluate what being "right" is because you're currently basing it off of your hatred for Cousins. There isnt much "right" about your constant ripping of him 24/7. It's near impossible for you to have a conversation on here without mentioning Kirk Cousins and what he has done wrong. You have 3-4 members on here going back and forth with you about the same thing and you're over there all by yourself. But "you are right and others are so very wrong"
Trust me, you arent nearly as "right" as you think you are pal.
