It seems like the storyline of the season thus far for the 3-2 Vikings is the play and maybe more so the attitude of quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is in his second season as the top Vikings signal caller.
Cousins has taken a beating at times for not playing up to the standards that many felt he should, going to the point of even saying ‘sorry’ after missing wide out Adam Thielen during a loss earlier in the season to the Bears.
Cousins recently spoke via CBS Sports about that he’s able to play with an edge thank to all the ups and downs and that actually makes him a better player.
“There’s no doubt I play better when I have an edge to me, when that guy who yelled ‘You like that!’ comes out,” the quarterback said on this week’s edition of his “Under Center” podcast.
“Believe me, the last week has brought that guy out a little bit in me. There’s some fire there and some edge … And that’s when I play better. I’m going to try to channel that every week going forward and have a little edge to me.”
It will be interesting to see what’s next for Cousins and the team, as they get set to take on the Eagles at home this week.
