  1. Hey Greg,
    Very good commentary, and explanation of how Kirk Cousins thinks…and the coach, Mark Mangino, who helped shape his thoughts and words when answering those questions.
    And the pushback storm from the July interview probably had nothing to do with masks lol.
    It was about adherence to the shutdown and following the script to be woke 24/7. Thanks much!

  2. I was pleased this was highlighted. It’s hard for me not to believe some of the reason Kirk is routinely criticized is his strong Christian faith. That makes people uncomfortable. Mostly those who are lost and envious of Kirk’s strength in who he is.

  3. @ Jason Kent
    I had the same thoughts! Kirk is criticized for his faith, but he perseveres, which bothers some people even more. Nothing they can say shakes him.

    I live in Minnesota, but am NOT a Vikings fan. After hearing Kirk defend his faith and even profess it, I softened to him & the Vikings. Now that I heard all of this, I’m just a little more of a Cousins fan. Truth be told, I hope he does well, but the team doesn’t! 😀
