Skip Bayless is one of the kings of the hot sports takes. So his take on Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, although it is a pretty ridiculous take.
Skip went on his TV show on Monday and called Cousins the most overpaid QB in the history of pro football.
“Kirk Cousins is now the most overpaid QB in the history of pro football.”
As if that point wasn’t enough, Skip added that Case Keenum would have a better season with the Broncos than Cousins will in Minnesota.
“Kirk Cousins is now the most overpaid QB in the history of pro football…Kirk Cousins will not have quite a good year this year as Case Keenum has for the Denver Broncos.” — @RealSkipBayless pic.twitter.com/N3MfQfzfeu

There is no way that Cousins is the most overpaid QB in the history of pro football. Skip must have forgotten about guys like JeMarcus Russell, who have done far less than Cousins to earn a $1 in the NFL, let alone several million.
As far as who has the better year, Skip has a 50/50 shot at getting this one right. Both Keenum and Cousins have been inconsistent throughout their careers and either one of them outplaying the other wouldn’t be shocking.
Overall a fairly decent troll job by Skip on this one. That’s why he gets paid the big bucks.
