Well-paid Kirk Cousins takes Joe Mauer's place in angry fan pecking order

Welcome to the Monday edition of The Cooler, when sometimes it’s actually nice when the weekend is over. Let’s get to it: *Kirk Cousins had a bad game Sunday — perhaps his worst game in purple, at least given the circumstances, at the worst possible time. These are the kinds of games you want your well-compensated quarterback to win. Instead, Cousins threw two back-breaking interceptions as the Vikings fell to the Bears 25-20 in a game that really wasn’t all that close but did have plenty of meaning in the NFC North race. Chicago (7-3) is now 1.5 games ahead of Minnesota. If the Bears...

Chicago Bears: Game balls after a 25-20 Sunday night victory

Chicago Bears: Game balls after a 25-20 Sunday night victory

We hand out our game balls to the best players in Week 11’s crucial Bears’ win on prime time. Heading into Sunday night, all of the talk was about how big of a game this was for both the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings. Heading into Week 11, the Bears held a half-game lead but had played just two divisional games. It was also said all week that whoever was the better quarterback would win the game and most people’s money was on the $83 million man in Kirk Cousins. Low and behold, it ended up being the better defense who won the game, and of course that was the Bears’ D. After...

After the Vikings’ loss to the Bears, here are some things to think about

After the Vikings’ loss to the Bears, here are some things to think about

It was ugly for most of the night. Ok, so I went to the Bears-Vikings game, and it was pretty unfortunate. The Vikings played some terrible football, and Bears fans did not have nice things to say to me. So, some thoughts. 1. Kirk Cousins did not play well, but...don’t listen to what everyone is saying about him. Listen, Cousins was awful in this game. There’s no doubt about it. He missed open receivers time and time again and only figured it out when the Bears were playing prevent and letting Cousins hit Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs for easy passes. Also, the pick-six essentially...

Kirk Cousins wilts under the lights in marquee matchup against Bears

CHICAGO — This was precisely the type of game that Kirk Cousins was brought in to win. With NFC North supremacy on the line on Sunday night at Soldier Field, this was a chance for the 30-year-old quarterback to make general manager Rick Spielman look like a genius for inking him to an unprecedented three-year, $84 […]

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears: Second Quarter Discussion

The good guys are down by a field goal after the first fifteen minutes of action Sunday Night Football got underway with the Chicago Bears winning the coin toss and deferring to the second half, giving the Minnesota Vikings the football first. Cody Parkey put his foot to the pigskin, and the new guy, Ameer Abdullah, let the ball go through the end zone for a touchback. Kirk Cousins led the offense onto the field at their own 25-yard line, and he got a quick completion to Stefon Diggs for eight yards to get things started. Dalvin Cook had a short carry to bring up third and inches, and...

Sunday Night Football open thread? Vikings vs. Bears

The Raiders got a big win in Arizona, and tonight’s prime time game will also have a big impact on their draft status next season. The Chicago Bears take on the Minnesota Vikings tonight in a game that will go a long way toward deciding supremacy in the NFC North. The Bears have certainly enjoyed the contributions of Khalil Mack and sit at a comfortable 6-3 atop the division. The Vikings are 5-3-1 and desperately need this win to keep pace and challenge for a playoff spot in the NFC. The Vikes have the dependable Kirk Cousins, whom I’m certain the Washington Indigenous Persons wish they...
