Bruce Arians attempted to bench Brady this past weekend when the game was out of hand and Gronk needed 7 catches to make a 1 million dollar bonus.

Brady said he was going in anyway and threw the ball to Gronk on a short gain to get him his bonus.

Is Arians going to lose the team because he wanted what was best for the team as a whole over the individual player? Nope.

Is the team going to look at what Brady did for one of their teammates and want to play even harder to not let him down? Absolutely.
So why didn’t the Vikings figure out a way to do the same for Jefferson?

It’s very possible that Arians simply wasn’t aware of where Gronk stood. And of course, Gronk had the benefit of a quarterback with onions.

Zimmer was very clear at his press conference. He knew, and he didn’t care. And Cousins? He just works here.

Underestimate this man.

I don't think "owed", "cheated", "didn't earn", "integrity of the game", "in the course of play" or any other statement in this thread is the crux here.

The coaching staff had an OPPORTUNITY to do something good/nice for one of its great, young players. They didn't. Not an isolated incident. The story ends with a mass firing of the staff.
Nothing nice about manufacturing an undeserved record.

If the game flow calls for a kneel down than that's what should be done.
