Brady – Brees – Cousins

Have the Vikings over paid for Kirk D. Cousins? (the D. courtesy of The Dan Patrick Show)

The chart below depicts the average of the first 3 seasons AS A STARTER for these quarterbacks that the Vikings fans wished they had, grateful that they had, and just to remind them of what’s always out there….Christian Ponder.

Kirk D. Cousins is worth the money. Some of these guys, their first 3 seasons was a while ago, but they went on to do great things.


So, Vikings fans, take Kirk D. Cousins and enjoy the ride.

I can’t help but notice – Is Russell Wilson a product of a great system and great defense? or simply that good.

Green indicates category leader, yellow, they ranked 2nd.

Bill Bergey – My Favorite Eagle

BillBergey

Bill Bergey

Bill Bergey was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles prior to the 1974 season after spending 5 seasons with the Bengals.   Long story short, he signed to play with the World Football League's Florida Blazers; it was a future's contract, it never happened, ended up dealt to Philly.  I would argue that he was the catalyst for the rise of the Eagles from 1978 - 1980.

The image on the left was my first introduction to Mr. Bergey.  My first All-Pro card, or at least the first one to make an impression.  The Topps,  1979 Bill Bergey.  This guy was a wrecking crew.  Finished his career with 27 interceptions and 21 fumble recoveries.  5 time All-Pro, 2 time First Team All Pro.
