I repeat the question you seem hell-bent to avoid: What the absolute fuck do you see in Kirk Cousins?
He's a damn fine QB. Finished ranked 5th in the ENTIRE LEAGUE last year.
see, here's my problem with statistics, illustrated: I don't give a rats' ass about any stat except win percentage. Brady sucks at stats, but every goddam team in that league would kill to have had him over the past 16 years. He knows how to win, did in college, with crap numbers.
Your new man crush Wentz is having himself a good time racking up stats against teams like the Giants, Chargers, Cardinals, Redskins, Panthers ... and now he gets to go out and humiliate the 49er's.
I'll admit, he's faced largely ego-builders, save for the Chiefs, when they were completely healthy. Like I say, he seems to be getting a better look at the game, is learning every week. I AM wondering if he ends up getting beat up before he matures(Andrew Luck even is banged out of any real top form after how many seasons?). Still, I'm not asking about Wentz, I see him every week on TV down here, and know what I'm looking at. I'm asking about Cousins, who I see all the time in VA, and frequently up here in DE. He is a flashy stat loser, with a tendency to take really bad sacks, and choke at key moments in bigger games. You can have him, and I still don't see the rationale.
Philly has already lost to the Chiefs (the only really good team they've faced so far) so let's see how your wunderkind does in the second half when he faces Dallas (twice), Denver, Seattle, Rams, and the Raiders. If he wins even 1/2 of those games perhaps I'll start giving him the benefit of the doubt.
upcoming schedules for your boys and the Iggles struck me the other night. You all have a BRUTAL stretch the next 6 games. The Eagles face the Niners, a decimated Denver(if you missed the Giants game, it was a body bag special on both sides of the ball), and one other patsy. The Rams, Cowpokers and the Raiders will be good yardsticks. At any rate, I'd say the Skins have really got to step up or get left behind the Eagles and Boys. Again.
But for now ... he's just a feel good news story benefiting from a cream puff schedule.
pretty much agreed, but my point was why anyone would WANT Cousins, for any reason. You all are fucked with a capital F so long as he is at the helm.
