I'm doing good richer you i am doing well so It took me when i moved to los angeles back in two thousand and three It took me a while to realize that. Whenever i was working indoors this was at nfl network. I was working indoors and it took me at least two three four weeks to stop lamenting manam indoors. When it's so beautiful outside because it's usually very beautiful outside. Have you gone through that process so far. Luckily for me my job is outside that's I get to enjoy it. But i am. I am enjoying it for sure. That's a pinch myself waking up and seeing the sign up every day seventy seventy five degrees. It's pretty nice. It's sure is so So far what have you been What have you been doing. So far to get yourself. Acclimated football wise. Walk me through that process for you. Matthew yeah you know. I think I've just been trying to catch up as much as i can You know i'm in a little bit of a unique position in the fact that everybody. Here's pretty much been running some version of this offense for the last four five years so You know they're definitely ahead of the game when it comes to the middle aspect when you know as far as where i'm at so i'm just trying to catch up everything i can there and then last week we kinda started Doing some onfield stuff And a little bit of a limited capacity but it was good to get out there and meet the guys and kinda start working with them throwing with them and and doing all that kind of stuff. So it's it's picking back up but Yeah it's definitely a processor me and something that Is a big challenge on the mental aspect. But i will Do my part to make sure. I'm ready to go. And what about mcveigh. He talks very fast. Matthew he does he talk guys got a lot to say. I know that guess you have to pick up his cadence as well too. i imagine. yeah definitely. There's there's communication you know. Obviously he's he's given me the place through the headset we're talking constantly out of practice And you know in in the meetings and all that kind of stuff just trying to get the as best we can because that's a that's an important relationship for for not only The offense but our team and so how many places he given you or is he gonna give you a multiple ones. You're going to give you one and then it's your job at the line to figure out what what happens. There i mean what is the The protocol that you're expecting for it is. It's a little bit everything you know. Sometimes we got one we got to. We got open ended You know just about like everybody else in the nfl. There's a there's a bunch of different options but You know it's definitely a a complex offense wanted to You know Has been you know executing and and been top the nfl for a long time around here so just got a lot of You know a lot of work to do to make sure we keep it there and get better..

"Well, the defense hold when he wants you scores and you know, will they be able to hold on to that league? Same thing with Aaron Rodgers? Heck, even Eli? I was going to say even if you lie led the league in that category, That's right. At least one at least twice. You didn't I way got the rock. I know Eli is going out of feeling worse quarter. It's God doesn't agree with the defense. Can't hold and that's on the defense. I can't put that on the line. That's why I think he's you know, got got got some elevation above his statistics, at least, is one law statistics Kurt Cousins over the last four years, BT Yeah, He's got four 444 cumulative over World War years human. It'd come back fourth quarter comes back so it'll last for years. It's not like they win 13 14 90 years, So Young said, Well, maybe they're not down that often in the fourth quarter, when you're basically 500, that's right down a lot in the fourth quarter. That's exactly right. And again. This this erases like then they're like the conversation around the statistic because the Staff Don't matter when you're you have a drive left or two drives left in the fourth quarter. It's all about Can I get it done? And neither leader that's gonna, you know, manufacture. The comeback is going to get us this much needed victory because every game in the NFL is tight. I mean, I know that we look at some of these lines and it's like, Oh, that's a crazy line. You got these come down. The one score goes every week. It's like a score, whether it's a field goal, whether it's a touchdown, and there's just that intangible the other ones I was talking about, but this is one I think matters the most and you this stat is lacking for Kirk cousins. And, you know, I don't know why we're the point to where to say that. That's this is, you know this causes this. There's just an it factor that really above average quarterbacks have and he just doesn't have it in the fourth quarter. He just doesn't have it. He just doesn't have it. I don't see him. Hey, doesn't have a great arm. It's fine. You know you have a great arm. It is not a great athlete at all. Um, he's not a big, physical, imposing presence. He's average I don't think he's a dynamic leader despite what he yelled at the ownership you like that, you know, I just think that he kind of blends in and blends blending in is good for harmony for the most part. Work consistency, but blending in is not necessarily guilty. Trying to get a champion. It works if you have an elite defense, and I think for the last few years there was a thought. That all right with Mike Zimmer is our head coach with one of the top two or three. Sometimes top five defense is in the NFL. We No, We don't need a world beater a quarterback we need. The guy's not gonna mess it up and and at times be elite, and that's Kurt cousins. But that hasn't been the Minnesota Vikings. Over the last couple of years. Their defense has has faltered and so It's a little bit perplexing. When you hear Rick Spielman talk about this. I spoke to him Saturday morning him and talked to his agent, just say. Just let him know that we want to make sure we have competition behind him that cursed. There's no doubt Kurtz, our quarterback going forward and that you know, we want to create competition if she was going to be the backup. And no, Kirk was great. He understands and, you know, he knows he's our guy Is agent knows he's our guys. So right now we're just focusing on getting ready for this season coming up. That was pro football. Talked PM with Mike Florio bt by the West Building. I don't Yeah, I don't. I don't take anything that he just said seriously. Yeah, I don't either. You know what I want to live. Here is the thing they'll be t. It means nothing When I first heard what he was saying, and it's like Well, it's one of you know we were we drafted Kellen Mon. We called Kirk cousins Saturday morning and we told him I just want there to be competition. I was like, Oh, hell, yeah, that's what you do. You do you draft a kid and the round second round like you drafted kid and you say, all right, It's not really your job. But there's a guy here. We want you to compete with him. And then he goes. He keeps going. It keeps talking. He said. It just stopped. You said we had to have competition for the backup job. Like you just killed it. You just killed the vibe. Because what Kurt cousins needs is someone to push him to make him better, right, Eo to take those risk in the fourth quarter that sometimes will come back to haunt you all right, with your completion percentage and maybe even your interceptions, But we'll give you a better chance of winning some of these fourth quarter games where you're down, and so The fact that he did, he said the right thing but then qualified for the backup and not for for the starting quarterback and Kirk cousins. That's that's where he lost me a little bit. Listen, take. We've had I mean, countless conversations about every quarterback situation in the NFL. Yeah, everyone we've we've addressed. I mean, whether it was a team get ready to draft somebody early, whether it was a contract situation like Dak. Whether it was judging the progress of somebody like Daniel Jones or Sand, Donald. These things resolve themselves, no matter what we say. And I'd like to think that in real time our takes our instinctual and into would've been And on point and toe, hopefully entertaining and interesting, But it doesn't mean that it's not gonna change and all that takes is you know, Iraqi September? I mean, just might not happen, but they're one and three your rights. Their defense is not what it was. If the Vikings or one in three and mon this flipping it well, in practice and moving around a little bit. And by the way, third round pick up. Yeah, I did. I thought you said second, I wouldn't correctly. I thought it was there. But I got you. Um, you know, I just think that you're gonna start to use some whispers. I don't know. This young man looks pretty good in practice. I don't know. And then you start hearing the booze, you start hearing boos in Minnesota. If this if this comes to fruition, and if that's the case, Spielman's of football guy, he's a lifer. You have Zimmer's a lifer. Zimmer's job I believe is in peril. This year. I thought it was a little bit of peril last year. And by extension, Spielman's gotta start getting this right. If Kirk cousins ain't playing well, there's going to the bench. You know what he said to my Florida area? It is what it is a matter. It is the meritocracy that is necessary in the NFL. Now I know that Kurt Cousins, I haven't looked at his contract recently. I don't know. I just did an extension. So it's It's a little bit punitive to move on from him, but not to the point where it's where it's like Aaron Rodgers exactly where it's just gonna hamstring you so I think they have to make the decision based on who's best for the future of the franchise right now, because it's getting to that point. What Don't you feel like the Vikings have become stagnant there? There were, you know, not that they're not staggered. I believe the Vikings air now regressing last year, they felt stag, you know? Well, I gave the against the Niners in the playoffs when they were horrendous two years ago. That's what I felt Stagnation like they hit their ceiling as a group, and then I thought there was regression last year. The horrendous start I don't know. I don't have the bold expectations for the Viking about Sean's gonna be five and 11. But if they were six and 10 or seven, I would I'd be stunned. That wouldn't be stunned. Yeah, I think I probably I probably gave them the benefit of the doubt last year because of the all the all the people, they talent. They lost on the defensive side of the ball, and they had to rebuild it, so they're really young. Some first time players. Playing in this new system, and it was just like, okay, we'll see what happens and then the following year, But either way, there was a point where in my mind, I would say God, the Vikings If Kirk Cousins just plays up to snuff? Yep, and their defense holds their own. The Vikings are viable man they consistently in the postseason,.

"Party back at the front studio with those bedazzled your piece only what you saw that only poppy can get away with that he turned off but you know what it's not brighten shady in Minnesota right now would see the you take a look at this Viking squad what's going on how do you fix it well I'm gonna say what I actually have to repeat myself from Bob fox Thursday night football because basically here here's what happened they thought they needed just the quarterback for the go out get card because of the given all that money the the problems not Kirk cousins they've got they are built to throw the football you look at it digs and filled one out you're talking bout route off they take they took a great pass receiving tied in and made him up blocker and then you talk about cook to run it they are built control the league is built to throw and Zimmer if you want if you just want to run the football loose football games keep it up you'll have another job maybe you can go to Michigan next year because I seem to be what they do in Michigan I think you're right I think December would probably be happy if they ran the wishbone and didn't he is so afraid that the old cousins are going to turn the thing over either fumble or throw an interception and aren't you supposed to have chemistry between the quarterback thank him as the official in intensity of there's no chemistry with the quarterback you know and and the other thing is hi this is a playoff team you know and they've got to straighten it out somehow they need an intervention cousins jammer and the receiver straightened out because this team can go all the way the quarterback is play into a tight they discuss with you because they wanted they put in that position to play a part I mean you you have the Lynn who is sixty four million big seventy two million covers eighty four math two hundred twenty million dollars and three guys the one of making the most you don't let him doing the but what you brought in there for you going to get the giants defense twenty fifth ranked be for the yards per game in the past if you don't throw the ball the day you sold us a lot about what you think about his abilities as a quarterback you got a thought about a great one just got some good stuff and stuff on dates before we get to that though how we will talk about the NFC west right now because at the Thursday night we saw Seattle beat up the rams but the team that's actually in first place right now because they want to feel is a San Francisco forty Niners I think we find out a lot about them on Monday night when they play Cleveland and then they get the rams the following week I think the best team in that conference at division rather is still around so I think on paper there may be a better football team than the one I went to the Super Bowl last year it's not materializing though I think that become too one dimensional I you know to young offense of linemen I think they missed Robert Rogers apple you can't pay everyone I understand that they're managing Todd Gurley they thought the dress the running back situation draft that hasn't materialized I think too much pressures on Jared Goff we're throwing a ball sixty plus times in a game and defensively you're giving up over fifty five points at home one week and then on a short trip up to Seattle on a Thursday night you lose a tough game if Greg the leg makes the kick were having a different conversation right now I think they're still the best team in the west until severance to soak in school San Francisco grows up the question is how quickly with that team grow up all right Jay is ready right now in jail you were talking about the findings what's the inside scoop look we all know that you missed Wednesday but he actually also didn't show up on Monday as a result of that they find him over two hundred thousand dollars but the other thing they could have done by him deciding not to show up Monday Wednesday because he was upset that she children something that would they could have withheld almost forty million dollars in guarantees his contract they decided not to do that they brought him and try to smooth all over in fact when this all happened also almost the entire in a phone call their general manager Rick Spielman said Hey is he available no absolutely not we're not trading the findings he made it very clear to the entire NFL by the way he is active today Mike Zimmer that drug companies will go alright look almost became public in Minnesota after the loss the bears last week also in a game Chicago solar quarterback Mitchell to basically go down with a shoulder injury the question for him is how long is he out he got very very lucky because he just look at the non throwing shoulder usually when you just look at that shoulder the labor charge also to labor Jersey you're looking that entire scene but there's just minimal damage so much so there who missed it is here then after the bar they actually think you could be back after that he's speaking about dealers sick one Barkley of the giants practice this week maybe be back sooner than we expect it's ridiculous that he's practicing his treatment I want to first went out of what he's saying six to eight weeks to be even more than that like you said he's practicing this week the play as early as this Thursday night against entrance doesn't play that game expect the backlit cardinals but the week after that but I mean we have our little called lands down here it should say sick one Barkley not human yeah he he is something special when you come back I know you've got some inside scoop is on Khalil Mack and his big game against the raiders will talk about that.

"Who your franchise is? And how you can be good on the field. Consistently. Those guys just seem to have more say over time than GM's that they may have even come in with the same year so who are what's the list right now? O'brien Zabel the win what to power struggles here. Yep. Gays. I have to imagine even though he won the mcalinden thing, which is so weird and how fast it all goes down. But is Adam gates now reporting to Joe Douglas or is Joe Douglas gonna have to listen at him gays? It seems like it's probably going to be Joe Douglas, having as much power or more power than Adam gates. I wouldn't put gas in that list just kind of the timing of it was just a little bit odd. Okay. I would say McVeigh's probably on that list. I'd say Shanahan is on that list. Weirdly. Mike Zimmer has a lot of say in how the Vikings build their roster. Rick Spielman, very well respected. But I think Zimmer has gotten a whole lot of power in Minnesota. If you wanna keep going, I think, O'Brien's there, obviously Bella check, Sean Payton is a huge hand in how the saints are built. I mean his kind of ascension to a different personnel, roll with that franchise is really affected. How successful they've been? You've seen how well they've drafted as of late. I mean that's a team that really has a piecemeal front office because Mickey Loomis does bowl GM jobs. Andy Reid is there even though he's doesn't have nearly as much for hand and personnel there as he did when he was in. Philadelphia because he didn't necessarily want it, but I would say that's kind of shortlist. If I was building stuff at top of my head. So let's examine the doors you one they're a little bit now. When he's out at KC and read, you know, like, you know, if it's going to be Andy Reid is your head coach. He has. I think the Andy Reid criticism is interesting. Because apart it was Philly, part of it was obvious clock management, things that did not work out. But if every other coach seems to rave about the way this guy designs offenses. And by the way, is an old school guy evolves to put together what we just saw this past year. Then he must be doing something right? But yet Dorsey has done what he's done now was Cleveland like, how did that divorce happen? And is that just another example of censure like a guy can lose a job who still doing the job? Yeah. I think that's the best example because John Dorsey did to a really good job of something that roster. But you can't lose any rate. Andy Reid is the DNA of that entire building. If you talked to guys on that team the reason that they had success. They do the reason they are with they are pretty much every level is because Andy. Reed's dna. In that entire team. And you just can't risk losing that. So if you have any sort of struggle between those two parties, John Dorsey, who did a great job is probably going to lose his job. So that's a really good one, because I feel like you Dorsey, wouldn't be the type of guy you'd expect to lose out on something like that. But when you have a guy like Andy Reid, what are you going to do? He definitely deserves the have kind of a Trump card in that entire situation because of what he can build is it even worth bringing up the Rivera. Gettleman one. That's, that's a good one. I would say, I would say that Rivera again. It's these guys that have been there for so long and reveres a slightly different conversation. He's closer to simmer where they're not that offensive head coach that really builds one side of the ball that is the most important to seining success..

Minnesota Vikings your season ended poorly. But you have a great guy in charge and GM Rick Spielman. So did you see the story? No. Okay. So Rick Spielman, I just know anybody that pays cousins eighty four million dollars has shit together. Well, got to believe that guess what? He is completely saying. Totally fine. Don't even worry about it. He'll figure this thing out a little story about Rick Spielman and his game day routine. Spillman falls the same routine before every Vikings home game and this week against the cardinals is no different this. How general manager survives thirteen NFL seasons by tempering his anxiety and finding order in the chaos he wakes up at five am he takes his dogs for a walk following the same route? He eats the same breakfast sandwich. Friday bacon, peanut butter on a wheat round. He shaves the left side of his face. Then the right way. Wait, you said peanut butter and Egge sandwich. No fried egg bacon. Peanut butter on elite round. Yes. Okay. Shaves the left side of his face. Then the right. He puts his shoes and socks on before his pants leaves his house at the same time. So he can arrive the stadium at eight falls same route stops the same gas station, use the same pump and makes sure always to end his purchase on zero. Okay. So he's got. Cd? Wow. And that's okay. Puts his shoes and socks on before his pants going. This is so crazy because he he uses the same gas station in the same exact pump and make sure it ends zero. And that's not the that's the third craziest thing in that story tells us so hard to do to stop the pump zero. No, if you do the little squeeze you can do it. It's it's it's actually someone tells me this guy doesn't do the squeeze though. Well, timed out he's got the clock. And it said he also another thing that he does on the same schedule stops working for the year and goes home at the very end of December. Yes. Yeah. He the zero thing Hank. It doesn't sound like he makes the exact same amount every time. So he probably misses. And then goes to the next one. Oh, so dollars exact misses it. And he's like all right. I'll go to six zeros or just good zeros are just there. Have you ever talked with somebody that has that has OCD and is fixated on certain numbers. Have you seen? Have you seen the corner my office? I clearly have. Yeah. Exactly the pile. No. It's it's an awesome conversation because it'd be like do you have favorite number, and it'd be like, yes.

"Both those teams feel like there is sending teams and both those teams frankly have better and more durable quarterbacks. Next up the Cleveland Browns at fifteen Browns on the upswing. It doesn't sound like Greg Williams has a great chance at the head coaching job. Or Freddie kitchens? I think I've said this before Brian I'll say it again, two pretty big risk pretty big risks. They're taking by potentially hitting the reset button on both offense and defense. I mean, they're really rolling right now things are going well, and they're going to all of a sudden just hit the reset button on both. But it appears likely that that's what they're going to do. Number fourteen. Minnesota vikings. Very disappointing season for the Vikings. Obviously just hard to believe that they weren't able to get that done on Sunday. We'll see if they make any changes to the coaching staff or elsewhere sounds like Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer are both back Zimmer's been clear. He's not resigning. He's not retiring. So he doesn't want to go anywhere else. Although there is some speculation that maybe the Bengals would be interested in Mike Zimmer and he's from Kentucky. And you know, maybe he would be ready to for a change thirteen the Steelers. So clearly a lot of discord there in Pittsburgh. The latest news is that Antonio Brown didn't play in the last game. Not because of a knee issue. But instead because he threw a ball at Ben Rothlisberger at a practice on Wednesday. You know, he didn't show up for practice. The next couple of days thought he still playing the game. They didn't let them play in the game. I really dislike hearing stuff like this. I hate when star players started acting like this. It's just really really disappointing. I don't know the inner workings. What happened? Maybe he was just upset that juju. Smith Schuster was voted the MVP instead of him. I know this wide receivers get very protective of their standing as the number one guy on the team. I can remember that with Eric moulds and Lee Evans, very protective number twelve the Dallas Cowboys. So here we are. Now, we get to the playoff teams. It's weird. Cowboys ten wins Cowboys playing very well. Right now. I it's they just happened to be number twelve. I think because of what the eagles have done lately, you know, beating teams like the Texans. The Rams eagles just on a roll now with Nick foles, but the Cowboys they have their opportunity Saturday night should be an excellent game against the Seahawks. Very much very much looking forward to it. Both teams run the ball festively. I think ultimately. And we'll talk about this later in the week bribe. Ultimately, I think you know, decor back plays probably the difference..

"Mistreat your streak without a bad day. Benjamin Sollac bend the previous seventeen weeks of football. Do not matter survive and advance is the name of the game. Now, Ben how you doing brother Kirk coupons? Three years bless them. Eighty four million dollars all guaranteed twenty eight million per you. That's one million six hundred twenty five thousand per game through for a hundred and thirty two yards must-win game, which is twelve thousand three hundred dollars her yard when you're in Josh Johnson. And as hero point endeavor in a pointless game through for ninety one yards. Kirk cousins who by the way is not a quarterback for who was picked up off the street in the middle of season. Who is the? The biggest free agent on the market at the quarterback position who signed a fully guaranteed eighty four million dollar deal through for forty one more yards than Josh Johnson to that. It's a beautiful thing with what the eagles needed, Michael. Yes. Ben how he Roseman at the two thousand seventeen NFL combine won a coin flip against the Minnesota Vikings. Rick Spielman to draft fourteen fifteen in yet coming draft and sense, then since he tasted the bitter defeat of the Minnesota Vikings. We have has not taken his foot off the freaking throat. I'm gonna go find the grave of Norseman and dance upon the electric slide. Like when he goes defensive back. I have never enjoyed so much another team losing that was not in my division. Then the Vikings just being the hottest team. I have ever seen in a must win game. Oh, my despicable despicable inexcusable. Reprehensible. Ho, Larry, I am having a fan tastic day. Thank you for Ascot. It's a great day to be an eagles fan. Eagles win twenty four to nothing against the Washington Redskins and on the other side of things they needed the bears to win which they do twenty four to ten. So the NFC playoffs are set. One seed New Orleans Saints to seed, Los Angeles Rams, though. Three seed Chicago Bears fours. The Cowboys five is the Seahawks and the eagles kept it a live somehow some way to get in as the succeed. That means. It's eagles bears which I'm reading now is going to be the late afternoon. Sunday game. Cowboys Seahawks is going to be before that in the wild car around. What a turnaround it'll be rooting for the bears today to now praying for their demise. But it's just business baby. Ben what a time to be alive. It is as an eagles fan with just when we thought we were out seventeen different times. The season of felt like they pulled us right back in. We're live baby. Forty eight seven loss to the New Orleans Saints digging up the eagles are for the eagles are foreign six dig up the up the receipts. They're gonna go down twenty two to three against the giants. Carson Wentz gonna bring them back and they will win a key divisional game twenty five to twenty two. It will come out against the Redskins led by Cole McCoy, they will incur the injury. That obviously matters nails win twenty eight thirteen. Now, they're at six and six with a chance to win the division. They will play a Dallas game that is terribly played for three quarters terribly. Officiated for four quarters and lose it in over time with the weakest their secondary has been and then Nick foles will come in and beat the Los Angeles Rams beat the Houston. Texans and then gallantly leave? The field force snap short of his one million dollar contract phone, which is lazy. That's the same. The eagles are absolutely gonna pay him that million dollars, by the way. There's no down my mind. You know, you're not bringing the guy back next year. He has to the playoffs again not. They do. But he is is just a narrative, unlike anything ever seed absolutely give him a million dollars. Yeah. He deserves it old Saint Nick. But it is shocking. Legals fell to foreign six crow. God back to six two divisional winds loss to the Cavaliers in the fashion. They did and then crawl tonight and seven they have won. Every all Cowboys won seven of the last eight years won five of their last six their only loss coming to the Cowboys. One to the eagles wins have been in my opinion considerably say recently more decisive because you have obviously you have a win against the saints for the Cowboys everyone against the eagles key divisional game. I want to get away from them..

"So is there something about the adversity of coaching there that you believe is going to be a big help to you now yeah i think you you know when you when you fight through anything you learn about yourself you learn about the people you're doing it with yeah i like the feel that we just didn't get a chance to finish for whatever reasons you know we were making improvements i feel like we were getting better in some ways and you know things happen you know when you don't win enough games you own it you move on and you know that certainly was my mindset and then you continue as a coach to go on and do what you do and that's coach football games and then along the way you learn more stuff and you and you apply to your next job i've got to think that in the last couple of years when you were in minnesota particularly in two thousand seventeen when when you have to deal with the uncertainty at the quarterback position not every day but i you know first of all you don't know if you're going to have a healthy teddy bridgewater you don't have a healthy sam bradford for very long and then you've got to play a guy who you thought what probably at the beginning of the year this nice backup quarterback and you've got to just keep the thing going in the right direction so tell me how you managed all that both with your team and in the quarterback room while i think we had a great structure there at the vikings we're an old school operation we were trying to do what we could do with the players that were available to win one game each week and that was against the opponent we were playing the mike zimmer and obviously rick spielman in the leadership of the the will family they they did a wonderful job of creating that environment when we said it was next man up it was the truth wasn't lip service and so we tried to inspire our guys if you are on our roster and you were active on game day and we put you in the ball game we expected you to play winning football and so.

"Yeah the bears are getting better they're doing all this work and they still got no chance of competing with the packers and the vikings now right i would think though and matthew stafford's not going anywhere in detroit forgot about the lions i'm fascinated by the packers because this is a brand new era for how long green bay never spend money in free agency with ted thompson now they would dabble every so often julius peppers as one veteran that they did sign a more high profile guy but now you're talking about jimmy graham robbed a mosque you covers the packers for us just reports them muhammad wilkerson is gonna sign with green in bay my opinion is they're feeling the pressure now because aaron rodgers is too great to walk away from this game with only one super bowl title so i think that plays into there is more pressure letting jordy nelson go probably because he doesn't run very well anymore but there's a new gm and a new philosophy in green bay and kirk cousins people debate that contract look the vikings are giving him a fully guaranteed deal because they think they can win the super bowl right now not next year the year after that signing kirk cousins is about winning a championship in two thousand eighteen so jeff who's under more pressure at this point the packers to maximize whatever the opportunity is for aaron rodgers or kirk cousins maximize whatever the opportunity is for the vicario jason i i would say it's vikings management rick spielman is actually under more pressure than kirk cousins because cousins has got his money he played the system per.
