INTERESTED TEAMS: ARI, MIN, NYJ Cousins likely will sign a three-year contract offer from the Vikings that includes roughly $86 million guaranteed, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. He likely will sign the deal by Thursday. Cousins, the star of this year's free-agent market, has improved every year in the league. His numbers over 48 games since taking over for Robert Griffin III rival those of Aaron Rodgers during that time span.
Actually, he has been much better than Rodgers. You are paying him more than Rodgers is getting paid. Best QB in the NFL.
Last 4 years.
Rodgers, 55 games, 125 TDs and 26 interceptions (record of 36-19)
Cousins, 53 games, 91 TDs and 45 interceptions (record of 25-23-1)
It is in playoff wins that he pwns Rodgers. Noticed you avoided that stat, Packer homer.
[Watching Jayblo hold his breath, and say quietly to himself. Dammit, Goalline. He's going to do it, you know.]
If Garp picks up a top notch CB, I'm good with that. I'd like to see another impact defensive signing but it's possible it could be second tier guys. All I know is neither Wilkerson (not that concerned about Wilkerson) or Johnson are showing any sign of news in the leakerverse and Packers FO has always been super secret agent types. I don't think it'll change too much under Glorp.
See, so you take Cousins last 48 starts and Rodgers last 48 starts, and you compare them. They didn’t say SEASONS, they said GAMES. Not sure why this is so difficult for some of you.
But, being the nice guy that I am, I did the work for you......
Cousins: 13,176 yds, 81 TDs, 36 INTs, 97.6
Rodgers: 12,631 yds, 107 TDs, 25 INTs, 100
Now, you can talk “Rodgers money” if you assume Rodgers is going to be playing for $28M this year. He won’t be. He’s being paid Garoppolo money.......
It's actually a 103.5 rating for Rodgers. You forgot the most important stat:
Rodgers: 31-17 (64%)
Cousins: 24-23-1 (51%)
Good comparison because both have had little running game and defenses that constantly underwhelm. Somehow Rodgers seems to have pulled his team to the NFCC twice during this span and Cousins...well...he made the playoffs once. Good luck! If Pat Shurmur was still there Cousins might actually have been the missing link, alas what could have been...
I'm excited to see the let down year. Vikings are good for a year then a let down for a couple years, then a good year, then more disappointment. Change the coach and the QB, and repeat.
Brak posted:Yes. 48 games...since taking over for Robert Griffin III rival those of Aaron Rodgers during that time span.
So he's played 9 more games...during that time span...and still come up short.
Thanks for your help.
Cousins last 48 games STARTED vs Rodgers last 48 games STARTED. I tried to help you. I really did. I even posted the stats. I’m sorry it’s too much for you to comprehend. I really am.
The quote refers to the 48 game time span since Cousins took over as the starter for RG III. And Rodgers' numbers over the same time span...you know, since Cousins took over as the starter for RG III. During which, Cousins played in 9 more games than did Rodgers. And still didn't measure up.
The Packers intend to sign tight end Jimmy Graham to a three-year deal, sources tell ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). The deal provides Aaron Rodgers with a quality red zone target at TE, something they have been seeking for years.
Last year, the Packers believed they had their answer at tight end in Martellus Bennett. That contract quickly proved to be a mistake, but the revamped Packers’ front office believes that they have a much better solution in Graham.
Heading into free agency, we had Graham ranked as the second-best tight end available. After Trey Burton agreed to terms with the Bears, Graham quickly ascended the ranks to become the No. 1 undisputed top tight end on the market.
Graham isn’t quite as dynamic as he was in his prime with the Saints, but he’s still trouble for opposing defenses, as evidenced by his ten touchdowns in 2017. The Saints were eager to facilitate a reunion, but the bidding got out of hand thanks to Green Bay.
Still lots of value left in 87. He could head west.
Seeing Jordy in a Viking uni would literally make me sick. One of my favorite all time Packers. I'm betting he comes back under new deal. If AR was pissed when Van Pelt left, he will be livid losing Jordy. Chemistry between them on the field was unreal.
