No, I don't really care that Cousins has a losing record against winning teams. If it were as simple as him having a losing record, it could be excused away and wouldn't be that concerning. What I care about is that his record against winning teams is awful, like worst in the NFL bad.CharVike wrote: ↑Fri Sep 10, 2021 1:10 pmDak played well but he lost. I know games come down to more than just a QB. My point was that Stump pointed out that Cousins has a losing record against winning teams and I pointed out so does Dak who is rated in the media as much better than Cousins.VikingLord wrote: ↑Fri Sep 10, 2021 9:32 am
I thought Dak played well enough to win last night.
Of course, so did Brady, but at least in terms of QB performance the two looked comparable.
The result of the game is more a reflection of the fact that the result of a game doesn't always come down to which QB played better and instead can be the result of special teams and/or defense. Trying to boil a result like last night's down to the QBs does a disservice to both IMHO.
7-35 for Cousins (.190 win %) and 3-16 (.163) as a Viking
13-20 for Dak (.393 win %)
Nearly twice the number of wins in 9 fewer opportunities.
If Kirk won against winning teams at the same rate Dak did, he would have won 5 more games and the Vikings would have been in the playoffs all three years he was QB here. THAT is why his win % against winning teams matters. Not to mention the last time I checked most playoff teams have winning records, and I also believe that you have to beat playoff teams to advance in the playoffs. To win the SB, you likely have to advance in the playoffs as well. Don't quote me on that though.
