And...that saved Cousins money went towards these Jets Wall-of-Famers. Take your pick which ones wouldn't have been signed had Cousins agreed to go to the highest bidder, but it matters not. 

  • Josh McCown (1 yr $10MM)
  • Trumaine Johnson ($34MM)
  • Terrelle Pryor (1 yr $5MM)
  • Le'Veon Bell (2 yr $28MM)
  • CJ Mosley (3 yrs $51MM)
  • Sam Darnold (3 yrs $26MM)

And...using the #6 overall pick plus three 2nd rounders for the privilege of drafting Sam Darnold. 

And...that has then led to using the #2 overall pick to draft Wilson, for better or worse eventually (hopefully it changes, but so far it's been mostly the latter). 

And...16 wins vs 43 losses (and different 3 head coaches) over the 3.5 football seasons since then. 

And...yay!!

Cousins pads stats and fails when it matters. Who cares?

Apparently the Jet fans that are still butt hurt he picked Minnesota over the Jets so they try to make him look bad any chance they get. 
 

Since going to Minnesota he has 114 TDs, 35 INTs, is rated over 100 with a positive win to loss ratio. 
 

As usual some Jet fans try to make themselves feel better about how bad the team is by trying to make players that left or didn’t come here look worse then they actually are. If Cousins was here he’d be the 2nd or 3rd best QB in Jets history.

His stats could be half as good and just the course of events that followed not happening regarding  the QB positions as mention by Sperm and hed still be top 3 Jet QB

They are 5-6 on the season so, at best, he was only “clutch” five times out of eleven.

Quote

 

In a Week 1 overtime loss at Cincinnati, the Vikings trailed by three points when they started the final drive of regulation at their own five-yard line with 1:48 remaining. Cousins proceeded to complete his six of seven pass attempts, including a 27-yard dart to Tyler Conklin up the seam to set up a 53-yard field goal to send the game to overtime.

The following week, the Vikings started their final drive at their own 23-yard line with 2:09 remaining, trailing the undefeated Arizona Cardinals by one point. Cousins calmly completed five of seven pass attempts on the drive for 49 yards to push the Vikings to the Arizona 19-yard line, setting up a 37-yard field goal attempt as time expired. (Alas, the kick sailed wide right.)

 

Since that article:

Against Baltimore down 31-24 with just over two minutes left he drives them 75 yards. Converts a 4th and 9 before hitting Thielen in the end zone for a TD to tie the game and send it overtime. 

So in 3 of those 6 losses he kept his team in it to the death with clutch plays. His defence is absolutely abysmal and the offensive line might be worse.

Kirk's a "compiler", and not a "winner". In his entire career, he has ONE 10 win season. His career record is 56-57-2. Since being placed on a loaded Minnesota team his record is 30-27-1. 

Say it slow, so it sinks in..... KIRK COUSINS IS NOT A WINNER

Oh okay. But I never wanted wanted him here and was happy to see him go elsewhere.

 

And low and behold, Vikings instantly became a worse team when he arrived.

He is an empty stat padder who folds when it matters and nobody will ever win with him

I just love Jets fans making fun of Kirk Cousins. 

 

To me - having a QB like Cousins is far, far worse than having a bust at QB. 

 

With a Cousins, you can delude yourself into believing he's the guy that can lead you to the promised land, the counting stats are nice and he has a few plays that really impress, but he repeatedly and constantly lets you down when you need him the most.

I watched the Vikings and its the team that lets themselves down a QB can't do everything. I have seen cousins have some really good late game drives ruined by bad play and bad defense. Unless Cousins is supposed to win with no time on the clock

See... that's the rub. Cousins isn't a bad QB. He's good, but he's paid as if he's an elite QB and he's just not. Giving him a massive deal ruined the Vikes.

He’d still be a top 3 QB in NY Jets history. Let that sink in.
