Just for a moment, consider a cosmic shift in regard to Kirk Cousins. A
shift that allows him to play without all those critical comments that have
forced him to play against himself rather than within himself.
This cat is capable of tossing the ball all over the yard including competing
against the elites in the NFC. On a short week, where this franchise had
to travel to the west coast, Kirk competed in a shoot out with Geoff that
included his precious Kupp. Maybe fortunately for him, we lost that
contest that may have been different if played in Minnesota or if not played on
a short week. It's fortunate because that was a very valuable learning
experience for this franchise.
What LOOM's is everything that still has not been activated ... at least not
yet. To be direct, we've seen only just bits & pieces ... a glimpse of
what is to be.
Now recall, early in 2018, Diggs might have been regarded as our most explosive
receiver, which opened the door for Thielen to explode on the scene
statistically. The weavers began to squalk demanding that coverage be
shifted to what appeared to be an uncovered Thielen. That coverage shifted
into taking both Thielen & Diggs away, maybe weakening that defensive
schemes to our run game. Unfortunately, for this franchise, in 2018 our
running game & offensive line was in woeful shape, where we could not take
advantage of the weakened defensive run scheme.
For this franchise, an inept run game had a double whammy effect in that Kirk
Cousins statistically was maybe the best statistical play action passer in the
league. What good was his play action prowess if we could not run the
ball? The results were evident? To not make the
So ... in this 2019 season ... IT LOOMS! What Looms. you might ask?
Well you still have that 4,000 yard plus passer who is still as deadly accurate
as ever. You still have Thielen & Diggs maybe one of the most reliable
tandems in the league. Now add to that Don Beebe's kid that cannot be
covered in the slot PERIOD. Now add to that a rebuilt offensive line with
addition of Bradbury & Kline, working within a zone running scheme that
clearly cannot be stopped by anyone. Now lump onto that pile maybe the
NFL's best running back that "Levels the COOK's" as what appears to be
a power back. Now add into that the bacon bits of this kid named the name
of Mattison that still hasn't had the chance to develop his NFL frame, but is
clearly the insurance policy of not overusing our best athlete. Now, I
know your thinking to yourself ... hey this is cool but we still haven't
discussed maybe the most unselfish NFL player out there that for years did what
was best for the team rather than to seek the glory which of course is Kyle
Rudolph. So you've had enough yet. Not so fast, as there's one more
little sprinkle by the name Irv Smith Jr., that is just beginning his emergence
as one of Zimmer's new offensive hybrids (Is he a flanker or is he a tight
end)? Let the nightmares begin.
So with all that ... what might be wrong? Why is it that the Viking
Nation has any fear going into the confines of Chicago's new & improved
Soldier Field going up against that magnificent defense for this up & coming
contest? The only thing that comes to mind is the
greatest motivational speak ever uttered by an American:
"Hey, what's all this lying around S--t? What? Over? Did
you say, "OVER"? Nothing is over until we decide its is!
Was it over when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor? No! And it ain't
over now! Cause when the going gets touch ... DUMP ... DUMP ... DUMP ...
The tough get going. Who's with me? Let's go! Come on!
Heyee! (Void, chiasm. lethargic do nothings). (Now the Question of all
Questions). What happened to the Viking's that
I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, Huh? This
could be the greatest nigh of our lives ... but you're going to let it be the
worst. Oh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto. We might get into
trouble. Well just kiss my hing quarters from now on! Not me!
I'm not going to take this this! Wormer? He's a dead
man. Momalard? Dead! NeiderMeyer? Dead!
This importance of this night is much much more than you think.
Maybe it's time to count yourselves as being apart of this ... where the time
for allowing anyone to cheap shot Kirk Cousin's is over. For once ...
allow him to breath free.
Yes, my friends ... it LOOM's!
