Listen: Cory Kirk, Vikings, Corey Cousins discussed on Chad Hartman
"Mistakes with. I made some of some great tools as well and you know throw that out today's so he's got all the talent and we just need to continue to coach in the way that we want to play. Mike Zimmer obviously saying the right things saying what he has to say about her cousins you know he's super annoyed. because really what happened is this offseason Mike Zimmer and Rick Spielman went to Kirk cousins in a meeting and said we are bringing Gary Kubiak we are sorry we put you in a position that was difficult to succeed in last year we were not running an offense built around your strengths and so what we're gonna do is we're gonna tailor our new offense around your strengths it's what every good company does right you empower your employees and so what they did they upgraded the offense of line they still got to the best wide receivers Dalvin cook is healthy and now they're they're running the ball more and they're running the ball effectively and they said this is this is gonna be perfect for you and you know what happened in that meeting. they basically said Kirk cousins just don't lose a game that's all you have to make a big throw every now and then but literally just don't turn the ball over we will win games it just just don't make dumb mistakes and you know he did not meeting. he knocked over the water bottle and drop the iPad. just. the guy can't happy can help himself he just cannot help himself ninety percent of time you'll watch him and say okay that's right and maybe this time you won't make those backbreaking mistakes no. no yesterday he he's going for a run for first down that's great he scrambled they wanna scramble more instead of sliding it decides to dive head first any fumbles unbelievably the Vikings recovery you'd think you'd think in his mind you who manage and protect the ball there very next play he fumbles again like he is the only person who could literally fumble on two consecutive place. and then and then. he tries to force feed Stefon Diggs later in the game into triple coverage. tough in your own it and then despite all that the Vikings defense pitching a shot out after the first quarter essentially they give up fourteen points to long drives that that third touchdown that was basically off a Acker cousins turnover so they had a short field so it's twenty one nothing right. it's twenty one sixteen the Vikings worked their way back it's twenty one sixteen you've just run down the field first and goal from the eight. any throws a pick in the in the end zone. it's just unbelievable. early three turnovers just a Kirk all you have to do this is a great team all you have to do just don't turn it over. any can't help himself he's in a meeting in his fumbling the iPad knocking over water bottles you keep going it unbelievable. I'm. it's unbelievable what that word means because I think it's really believe it's very believable I guess I just find it it's just bizarre to me that this is it you just can't you can improve that like he's good at so many things and and yet he cannot change this about him I think it's exactly what we've said now whenever we talk Vikings the last few months and going back to last year he's got all the arm tell the world right he can make the play although the deep ball deep all the big Scott for the touchdown heck of a throw you in a lot of great throws but if things aren't perfect around him if the protection the if he isn't confident the protection confident in the running game confident and receivers getting opened. it's there's just something there it just doesn't click now it just doesn't click if it's not perfect around him. man hold your breath because. things are gonna happen and they're probably not gonna be good as was the case yesterday you saw it. lot of people chime in and we ask who's to blame who's to blame for this Vikings losses at the is the officials we'll get into that a second my god don't blame the Ralph no they didn't they didn't lose the game but they I mean they they were like where. just horrible horrible officiating but her cousins Los again let's just be clear Kirk cousins lost this game and people can sail it's a team sport yeah but quarterbacks most important position and he let his team down again. I'm Corey cousins first downy hairs it out. Cory Kirk cousins hands down momentum buster. Cory to team loss. Cory penalties quarterback in defense in the first quarter. or what about the kicker special teams are we the only team that gets penalized in has to do a extra points and you just know you're not gonna make it forty eight yard P. A. T. get it blocks boys yep. Cory Stefon Diggs with the penalty and with that big drop to he had that big drop on th I don't know if it's a third down but is in the first half at that huge drop where if he catches it he he may be gone Anne had a drop that one not that long bomb but it was like that eight yard pass it was over a defender and and he just had it in sand any drop dead. Corey. why didn't the Vikings drive for Joe Flacco well they're already paying a lot of money to Kirk cousins so you you really couldn't also I don't think Joe Flacco is really not great either. Cory wasn't a first down in that last interception it was so first and goal from the eight even if you just throw it away you're fine. even if you just throw it away you're fine. look let's be honest. the officials word were just terrible. that pass interference where they took away the touchdown it is nuts I I don't like that the game is now being reviewed in New York and not only what what bothered me about it was that on the field nobody complained like it was a touchdown nobody complained nobody said it it also we go to a commercial break we come back in the reviewing something like what you're if you and Stefan digs in and they review and say Dalvin cook it was kind of a pick play and he but he didn't even his arms were extended he didn't hold like. if if that's what's going to happen now we're gonna go to New York and they're gonna NIT pick up. a guy who is across the field or do like this is getting a little ridiculous like no Packers are complaining nobody was complaining it's weird because it's totally a penalty it's always been a penalty it absolutely is a penalty but it's also something that hasn't been called ever since the wide receiver screen came into existence ten fifteen years ago that came into existence but became popular haven't started running that. that's been happening forever in the at the goal line pick plays have been run for decades it's a very rarely called which is interesting that then they have to go back to the review then call there it's only called if it's if it's like over the top if you're grabbing him if you're just putting your arms out like a block cook was held in any turns around and bumps the guide is like okay. is Justin is insane I we got Philip on the line fillable you blame in this morning well I definitely playing the opposite Kirk cousins. yeah you know why because I went to two of the over football games. we have five for both the first came and this last time because Georgia southern yeah yeah that was ugly when it. but they still won the game yeah that was not coming back thirteen twenty nine at the six Philip thanks for the call button is amazing so they the office could do it if the if the receiver yeah if they don't if they don't shoot themselves in the foot thank you fellow you're right on up to even out. Corey a better quarterback beat you well yeah. yeah Aaron Rodgers a better quarterback for sure. good gore who save the game even though we didn't win. or call back I think you're on the air death. yeah I might be okay gore who save the game even though we didn't win Dalvin cook yeah it's very encouraging to have Dalvin cook. all right. up next. changing the way that we eat and and I think it starts with habits right habits that are created when we're young and in school how are schools around here are changing the lunch menu that's all coming up next.
