    As far as I'm concerned Cousins is a proven franchise quarterback, a player a team can build around. The Redskins would be wise to lock him up with a multi-year contract.

    The mainstream media will, of course, continue to question Cousins because he's white. The MSM has an agenda to replace all whites with non-whites.

    Cousins is also a devout Christian. So in the eyes of those that run the NFL and all of professional sports he's got that going against him. In their minds he deserves the Tebow treatment.

    For the second year in a row Kirk Cousins has a passer rating over 100. The mainstream media still won't give Kirk Cousins his due credit for his abilities as a quarterback. They give credit to the coaching and his supporting cast, as if he has little to do with his own success.

    One of the reasons the MSM won't give him credit is he replaced black supremacist heartthrob Robert Griffin. They hyped "RGIII" to the skies and he turned out to be a bust.

    The black Griffin was outplayed and replaced by a white man, Kirk Cousins. The MSM doesn't like the idea that a white man could be better than a black at sports, that narrative doesn't fit their black supremacist, anti-white agenda. So they refuse to give Cousins credit and attribute his success to anybody but Cousins.

    Cousins has always been underrated, even before he was drafted. The two main causes are that he's white and he's a Christian. The mainstream media is anti-white and anti-Christian.

    Cousins has had two excellent seasons in a row. He looks as if he might become an elite quarterback in the Brady, Manning, Brees mold.

    Whatever happens the mainstream media will never let up on trying to bring down White men and Christians.

    Here are some of the comments that were made after the Redskins drafted Kirk Cousins in the 4th after drafting Robert Griffin in the 1st. The ones who claimed they thought it was a bad move seemed to feel it would hurt Griffin's feelings and liberals believe they must never hurt the feelings of someone who's black.

    Everyone knows the story now. Cousins is a franchise quarterback and Griffin is a bust and is out of the league.

    Cousins will likely have a great year with the Vikings. He should lead them to the playoffs and make them Super Bowl contenders.

    What gets me about RG3 is the teams all knew he had a bad knee when he was drafted but barely a word was said about it during that draft.

    That's an excellent point. In their hysteria to hype a black quarterback the media covered up all the issues he had and made him sound like a great prospect when he wasn't. For example he had a hard time evading big hits and this showed up when he was in the NFL.

    Kirk Cousins had an excellent 2018. The Vikings finished 8-7-1 and missed the playoffs but it wasn't because of Cousins.

    Cousins played all 16 games. He had a 70.1 completion percentage, a 30 to 10 TD to INT ratio and a 99.7 quarterback rating. Pretty good.

    The (((sports media))) is wanting to put most all of the blame on Cousins. Fact is, he was under duress much of the time when he dropped back to pass. The O-Line had serious issues at times. He did all he could given the circumstances. Like I'm sure Winston could have had the Vikes sitting at 15-1 about now...

    I watched most of the Viking games. Cousins looked every bit as good as advertised in the first half of the season. He locked on to Thielen and had success. He completely went away from that strategy around game 8. From what I have gathered that clear change in offensive strategy came from the Head Coach, Zimmer, and possibly other offensive coaches. The team lost a couple of games in that early stretch mainly due to the defense, but Thielen was getting all the national attention. It doesn't take much for coaches to doubt white athletes even when they have record-breaking success - somehow they will get blamed for the teams shortcomings. These geniuses made a conscience effort to "spread the ball around" and get more "balance" to the offense. It makes no logical sense because the offense was thriving feeding Thielen. About the same time the incredibly over-rated RB Dalvin Cook returned from injury and there was a clear effort to make him the focal point of the offense. Cousins, however, did nothing to stop the change in strategy - he may have even agreed with it for all I know. Unfortunately I have to repeat a saying from an old high school coach: Winners find a way to win and losers find a way to lose. Cousins has a terrific arm, but I think he may just be a loser upstairs. In the lose to the Bears, he targeted Thielen 4 times, 3 of them were very positive plays and one was a complete misfire by Cousins who quickly and publicly threw a tissy-fit at Thielen. Never mind Treadwell, Robinson, and Cook who ran wrong routes, dropped balls, and showed a lack of effort all season long - they still got plenty of targets and no public shaming ever. The Chicago game was a microcosm of the entire second half of the season. I hope I'm wrong but Cousins sure did look like a hopeless loser this season.

    Great post. All of a sudden something went haywire with an offensive formula that was working very well, one based around the superstardom of Adam Thielen. Was it deliberate, or stupidity? All of a sudden the o-line couldn't block well enough for Cousins to throw even short passes to Thielen?

    And when Cooks finally returned and began to look half-decent after two seasons marred by injury, the offense still stunk. Why not go back to Thielen as the centerpiece of it, with Diggs as the secondary star receiver? The presence of Diggs made Thielen's stardom easier for DWFs and the media to accept, and it was finally accepted. The NFL is filled with stupidity because of the always looming presence of the Caste System, but what happened to the Vikings seems mostly like stupidity caused by a deliberate decision to avoid Thielen having a season for the record books. It would have been like Christian McCaffrey threatening the hallowed rushing records of Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith, Jim Brown, etc.

    I wouldn't call it a conspiracy, more just the way things are done in the NFL, where the "locker room" and the taboos against Whites looking like Hall of Famers at certain positions are almost always considered and rigidly enforced. Every White person in public life, no matter their occupation, knows the rules regarding race they must abide by.

    Will anyone here be surprised if next season the Vikings move from their current status as the NFL's relatively "White friendliest" team, including cutting the two backup White receivers they carried this season, and that Thielen never again approaches the production he accumulated the first half of 2018?

    No I would not be surprised.

    If the second half of the season Cousins to Thielen combo was indicative of the whole season then I would be concerned. But despite the drop off in production from the first half of the season the combo put up some big numbers for the year and Adam had career highs in catches, yards and TDs.

    I was on the fence with Cousins before the season although I knew he was a better than average QB. But he had to manage with an OL who didn't always protect him. Might be blasphemy but I think he is every bit as good as Philip Rivers but of course Rivers has been very good for a very long time. Whether Cousins has that type of career remains to be seen. But he does throw a "nice ball" as they say and he is much more mobile than people think.

    That said the history of white WRs keeping up the pace for several years in a row is worrisome. But I think the Vikings are doing the right thing by hiring Gary Kubiak as an offensive advisor. His son will be the QB coach.

    Remember when Kubiak was the hot up and coming offensive innovative HC much like the youngsters being hired today? Well he fell out of favor much too quickly. Patience runs thin for head coaches who are more white friendly than the norm I guess.

    The Vikings have some issues and their defense is one of them but if I had to guess I think the Cousins to Thielen dynamic combo will flourish yet again next season.

    It could be a lot worse. Imagine if say Dak Prescott or Lamar Jackson were Thielen's QB?

    Cousins just needs to be able to get that big-game mojo on. He has underperformed in big games to this point, but just needs to figure out how to rise to the occasion which I expect he will do. The coaching change will probably be a good one for him. I look forward to watching him get better and better. As good as Rivers? I hope that he can achieve that.

    Kubiak to Minnesota as OC is a good offensive hire. As others have mentioned, I too have always been a fan of his. Should help Kirk quite a bit.

    Agreed. Thielen should continue to thrive, hopefully Zylstra or Beebe will get a shot at regular playing time.
