    Face it guys. Cousins does suck and Rodgers is getting old. Neither will see a Super Bowl. Granted Rodgers went to one and won it but chances are he won't see it again.

    And no one here is saying Rodgers is the best around, just pointing out he's done more than Cousins has, or ever will.

    It can be. Champ has never said the Packers didn't beat the Vikings this year.

    Bad games happen.

    Shall we discuss what Rodgers and Cousins did against the Los Angeles Chargers?

    The facts:

    Chargers 26 - Packers 11.

    Rodgers didn't lead a single TD drive until garbage time late in the 4th quarter.

    Rodgers completed 23 of 35 passes for 161 yards (4.6 yards per attempt), he had one pass dropped, but had 9 bad throws and was sacked 3 times.

    Chargers 10 - Vikings 39

    Cousins led a TD drive on the Vikings first possession. He led two more scoring drives in the first half. He followed that up with four more scoring drives in the second half.

    Although the Vikings running game was extremely successful that day, Cousins still passed for 46 more yards that Rodgers with 10 less passes (8.23 yards per attempt).

    Then there is the 49ers. Yes, the Vikings lost by 17 points. But at least the Vikings made a game of it in the first half - it was 7 - 7 at the end of the first quarter and 14 - 10 at the end of the half.

    Unlike Rodgers and company who failed to score a single point in the first half of either game. All points scored by the Packers were in garbage time.

    Since Kirk and Aaron signed their current contracts, Aaron has been paid over $100M. Kirk has been paid roughly half of what Aaron has been paid.

    Both teams got 1 playoff win. The Vikings had 2 winning seasons. The Packers only had 1 winning season.

    Yet you seem to think Aaron's pay is justified and Kirk was overpaid????

    I can't argue against logic like that...:rolleyes:

    What is really sad is that you understand Rodgers isn't the GOAT of QBs but figure that somehow makes Cousins "worth it" He's not worth it in anyway shape or form. He chokes against winning teams but stat geeks like yourself get all hot and bothered when he posts decent numbers against crap teams or in garbage time. Stats don't mean jack-poo if you can't win. The gold standard in the NFL is Super Bowls. IF Cousins gets there we can revisit his value. You don't win the Super Bowl off stats, TDs thrown, yards etc. It's al based on the win, no mater how you got it.

    So if Rodgers sucks and has won a ring how bad must Kirk suck to have never got the job done?

    I lived in WI for over 20 years. The majority of Packer fans have consistently claimed that Rodgers is better than Brady (the absolute "gold standard" by your definition.

    If, and I repeat, IF, winning the Super Bowl is the gold standard then Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson and Jeff Hostetler are GOLD.

    No one in their right mind would ever say that any one of those are as good as Dan Marino who never won a SB except you apparently. Dan Marino is in the NFL Football Hall of Fame.

    Today, a decent veteran QB who has never won a SB routinely gets paid at the level that Kirk Cousins is compensated.

    Kirk signed his current contract in 2018.

    These are the established veteran starting non winning SB QB's that have signed since then, listed by the average salary per year:

    1. Jared Goff - $33.5M
    2. Carson Wentz - $32M
    3. Matt Ryan - $30M
    4. Kirk Cousins - $28M
    5. Jimmy Garropolo - $27.5M
    6. Alex Smith - $23.5M

    The AVERAGE salary is nearly $30M, so Kirk's $28M is BELOW average in the NFL. On Sunday, I may need to take Garropolo off this list. If I do, then the average salary goes up, not down, making Kirk's salary even more reasonable.

    Feel free to spin your way out of this one, KD.

    You offer opinions, I offer facts.

    You're definition of facts is whatever supports your opinion. You keep spouting the same tired crap hoping it sticks to the wall. Show me Kirk's Super Bowl ring and we can talk about being worth 84 million guaranteed with no out for the team when you suck.
