If that isn't enough, we are obviously in a SB window right now. If there was ever a time to pay for some talent, it is now.
On top of that, we are easily the most desirable landing spot for any QB. Keenum lit up this place with this roster. Imagine what a guy with some serious NFL moxy is going to do.
I really can't believe this is even a debate.
GO SIGN COUSINS!!!!
What do you love about Cousins? Since you say his win/loss percentage is meaningless. Which is one of the very few times Ive heard that mentioned. Hand picking stats that work with your theories can only go so far. IF cousins is so effing good and WE SHOULD GO GET GET HIM, why can he improve the teams he is on? You going to blame that all on coaches, GM, other players, etc, but never Cousins? I dont think Cousins is trash, but he isnt the second coming of jesus like some here believe. How do you know Case cant get better with an even better team, and more time on that team? Thats right, you dont. I just dont want us to spend 10 mil a year over what the guy is worth because we paniced, just like we did when we got Sam. How did that work out for you?
Again, you keep avoiding the Stafford, Carr argument. Answer the question, would you want either of them on this team for big money?? Yes or no. Simple as that. Because if you do, you basically just told me that winning percentage doesnt matter. Because they are pretty much the same as Cousins. They are good QBs on BAD teams. It happens guys. All the time. Not all good QBs are on good teams. Cousins is a perfect example. So is Stafford. So is Carr.
Not one fan on here thinks Cousins is the "second coming of Jesus". But when it comes to free agent QBs that are EVER available, he is. One of the best to hit the market since Manning.
And enough with the "we panicked with Bradford". You mention it all the time. WE HAD SHAUN FRICKEN HILL!! Was it Spielmans fault we didnt have a backup worth a damn? 100%. But at the same time, when that happened, we HAD to do something. And Bradford was our best chance to win. Unfortunately it didnt work out. But if I was Spielman and that happened, I'd do the same thing 10 times out of 10. It had to be done. AND.....AND lets not forget that when Teddy went down, the initial thought was that he could never play again. So in turn, not only did we get a good QB for 2016 but potentially a franchise QB down the road if he panned out. It wasnt just a "panic move JUST to save the 2016 season". It was for that season and beyond. He was thinking in the future because we all thought Teddy was toast and it was just before the season started so there was no draft coming up to get that franchise QB.
Either way, nobody is handpicking stats. Especially me. I just posted (I think on the last page), Kirk's rankings in pretty much every big statistical QB category from 2015-2017 and he ranked inside the top 10 for the majority of them. So yeah, I would say that why, myself and others want Kirk Cousins. He's consistent. He's proven he's a top 10 QB in this league (right around 9 or 10 I would say). Every other QB on this roster is......inconsistent whether it's play or injuries. WE WANT CONSISTENCY! We're sick of wondering every week who the starter is going to be. And we dont want to pinch pennies "in hopes" that one can work out. Kirk is the answer to those problems. He's healthy, consistent and an overall good QB.
