    The funny thing is all 3 teams failed. Broncos stunk. Redskins were injury riddled and Vikings choked.

    Nobody won this, especially if Smith's career is over.

    There is no reason. Regardless of what happens this postseason they have a good solid young team and a 3rd year of Trubisky, 2nd under Nagy's mentorship. Yeah, I think they'll be just fine next season.

    Your team is terrible too. Maybe the most dysfunctional franchise in the NFL. Jerruh runs a better organization :laugh:.

    You are aware the team lost their star QB right

    Rofl, star quarterback. The Eagles lost their star quarterback too. But Smith's injury is irrelevant to the fact that they are a dysfunctional franchise and have been since Snyder bought the team.

    Jerry runs a circus in an overrated facility. They are marginally better at best. They have like one playoff win in 20 years. If that.

    On the contrary the media will stop at nothing to tear Snyder apart.

    They judged him as mediocre regardless of what Snyder thought.

    Now we see the true Kirk in Minnesota without the Redskins circus. Guess what, he's not that good.

    The excuses were all over the place.

    First it was the OC. The OC was not helping Cousins succeed! Then it was the OL! The OL stinks! Then it was "the team got worse than their NFC Championship season" (which is extremely hard to believe)

    What excuse is there this time?

    On Vikings reddit they are already pissed as hell at him.

    He really did secure the bag with that fully guaranteed contract..... grand larceny.

    I wish I was at home today so I could watch my man Skippy Bayless roast "Kurt" Cousins.

    I still think he gets some unfair criticism given how absolutely horrible the Vikings line has been/is, but games like yesterday are impossible to defend. That loss was all on him.

    It's frustrating to watch a QB that gets $28M/yr blow a game all by himself.
    The Vikings' problems go far beyond Cousins though.
    Bottom 5 placekicker and pass protection the last 3+ years for sure. And I don't know what they pay Zimmer's great defense, I'm sure they'd have to be the most expensive defense in the league, but they've probably let the team down with ****ty play as much as Cousins has in the last year and a bit.

    He cost Minny the game. There was no reason to make that throw at 1st and Goal.

    Since Zimmer came on board in the 2014 season they've been a very poor pass blocking team every year except for 2017, when they were merely average. Don't think it's a coincidence that that's the year they had a great season. It's become a truly chronic problem and honestly baffling that they haven't been able to improve it at all. It's started off worse than ever this year.

    He was under constant pressure all game. He's still a solid enough QB. Green Bay just legitimately has a good defense now.

    I never really considered them having a decent line in 2017, but maybe they did play better. I figured Shurmur's scheme had a lot more to do with their success.

    It's frustrating to be a fan of a team that hasn't had a legit top 10 Qb in the league in the past 3 decades outside of 1 year of Favre, 1 year of Cunningham and a couple seasons of Culpepper. In his 15 years with the team, Spielman has proven he is incapable of recognizing and drafting a great QB. His teams have been all over the place - awful, middling and occasionally good. There has never been any sustained period of greatness...not even sustained goodness really, under his watch.

    The Packers defense is good and they overwhelmed the Vikings OL for most of the game but Cousins didn't make the plays even when he had time and a relatively clean pocket. The Vikings left some big plays on the field because Cousins couldn't get it done, again. A few examples:
