Kirk Cousins, Minnesota, Rams discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
I really thought I picked eagles to repeat I thought the west. So this basically you want confirmation by you. Analysts I want. I want to be right. Don't you wanna be right? When you make look I think I think the Rams badly miscue per Cup. Okay. Folks. All you out the Rams or not. I am not. Okay. I am not. But but you're off has been bad has been bad recently against against these. He wasn't gonna get the lion's for people freak out about some other games. He wasn't good against the lion. No, no, no the lines which is bad enough. You know, they were good of the the random just good enough to beat a team like a line up nine nothing yesterday against Minnesota. No final score. No twenty twenty-seven nine nine nothing. Yeah. Terrible. I actually think Minnesota's got a shot. I just do you. Yes. Yes. I don't know. I'm again, I'm not I'm not all in on Kirk cousins. I know I am not. I do I think he's the greatest quarterback ever know. But he has he's got he's got a freak behind him. He's got to freaks out wide. And I think the defense though, it hasn't been as good as it was supposed to be. It's it's it's gotten better. Now that they found they found, you know, some balance offense thing that they thought hey, you know, what let's just upgrade to quarterback position fence, right? And we will be even better than they were year ago. That's what they thought. But the defense didn't play as well. And they lost some games. They probably shouldn't have how crazy is it? People think people would say Kirk cousins is not having a good year. No. He's the numbers are there. Right. Got forty one hundred sixty six yards with a game to go. He's completing seventy percent of his passes. It just doesn't feel joining nine touchdowns ten or sections. It doesn't feel like it. Look, it doesn't feel like seventy five million. What what did they give them that guarantee? That's what it doesn't feel like people look at the number and they look at Kirk cousins. Right. But here's the problem. You couldn't get him for a penny less because the jets actually offered him more. And if you didn't get him, what was your option? So I understand options keen if he has it leverage. And he and he used it this. It's more about business, and and the market than it is about how how good he actual people. Do look at your salary and they determine whether or not I do this all the time. I show you. Remember, you still get the Sunday paper, you're still paper guy. No, I'd but I looked once in a while. Okay. So but you have gotten a switch, which hurts me does as a former right, exactly. And a guy who grew up in newspaper. That's all we when you get a Sunday paper back when you got send it. Yes. You know, they have long, you know, they had a little parade magazine us k and once a year. What was what was the one that you all that people always? Athlete. No one. Okay. How much does somebody may? Yes. That that was like, yes. Oh, wait, a postal worker makes seventy five gray s in Peoria would over time. Yeah. That's a great gig. Right. As a great gig you walk. You know, you just gotta worry about dogs. I love dogs. Are you gonna do is worry about dogs that is the only downside? So the so the the the what happens when you read that magazine, it was what happens with Kirk cousins you make complete judgment about a human being based upon how much they're making. I totally agree. And we judge Kurt about that issue. I used to be. Yeah. I had I had a car ride once with Dave revson, which the big ten network two games together. We did the what's the what's the league called shoot Leigh. Highs in man. We did the the league championship. All right. Patriot league championship. And we did it in Bethlehem Pennsylvania was Lee high against I'm gonna say Lafayette. Lee ends up winning. Billy Taylor was the coach for Notre Dame player. And we decided it didn't make sense to drive to Philadelphia..
