The Minnesota Vikings signed Kirk Cousins in hopes the quarterback would get them over the hump and into the Super Bowl.
That didn’t happen.
They got worse.
When asked last week on the Dan Patrick Show if he considered the year a success, the signal-caller was blunt.
“The short answer is no,” Cousins said, via Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “We didn’t make the playoffs. There were high expectations and we didn’t deliver, and so I’ve been frustrated since the season ended.”
Cousins finished with 4,298 passing yards (10th in the NFL) and 30 TDs to 10 INTs, while being sacked 40 times behind a porous offensive line.
“I wish the 2019 season started tomorrow,” he said. “I’m ready to go and make amends for 2018. It’s been frustrating to know I have to sit here for whatever it is, seven or eight months before we get back at it.
“It has been a tough January for me. I haven’t been sleeping well, that kind of a thing, because, yeah, it just left a bad taste in my mouth the way the season finished up.”
Cousins is a good fantasy QB, but in reality, is he all that great?
Cousins will be the third-highest-paid quarterback in the NFL next season at $29 million, trailing only the Saints’ Drew Brees ($33.5 million) and the Lions’ Matthew Stafford at ($29.5 million).
