Jared Goff doesn’t want Kirk Cousins going to the Cardinals

Patrick Peterson and Larry Fitzgerald want Kirk Cousins to sign with the Cardinals. A member of a team that competes with the Cardinals doesn’t.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff has no interest in seeing Cousins twice per year.

“I’m hoping he doesn’t,” Goff said in a visit to the PFT Live set on Friday. “He’s a hell of a player. I’m a big fan of his, big fan of what he’s done.”

Goff explained that he has studied basically every snap that Cousins has taken over the last three years.

“He’s tremendous,” Goff said. “I don’t think he gets enough credit for what he’s done. Some of the throws he made [that] we see on film. You rewind it, you watch it again. It’s unbelievable.”

Why doesn’t he get more credit?

“I don’t know. Because guys like you don’t like to talk about him,” Goff said, laughing.

Goff agreed with my explanation that guys who win are the ones who get talked about. Cousins, over the last two years, hasn’t won enough. If he’s as good as Goff believes, Cousins may be winning plenty in 2018.

If he makes the right decision about where he’ll go next.

    He would instantly make the Cardinals contenders to win the NFC west!
    ————

    Eh. Maybe… He does know that he would make the Vikings instant contenders to win the Lombardi. They almost did it with freaking Case Keenum after all.

    Lombardi > (lol) NFC West…

    This one isn’t close people. Cards couldn’t even sniff the playoffs with a franchise 1-1 QB, Vikings made NFC Champ game with a 3rd stringer. The vikings are built to win now, the Cardinals could potentially be built to win soon, but even Larry Fitz said today on the dan patrick show he is unsure if he is even coming back next year. If he does it could very well be with the Vikings and Case Keenum.

  2. The Vikings are are built to win now. Hahaha, I have heard that ever since they drafted AP and rode him all they way to one playoff win. The Vikings are always just one guy away from that Lombardi.

  3. Guess that assessment is easy to say when your coach makes your pre snap reads for you. Though I don’t want Cousins to land in AZ either.

  4. What has he done? Fleece the Redskins into overpaying him? It would make sense since Goff was talking about his 2nd contract after his lackluster rookie season.

  5. Ha. Vikings will return to “also-ran” status after Rodgers returns. No better or worse than the Cardinals as an option to win now.

    No Lombardi for either group, but playoffs are a reasonable expectation.

    Ummm… You do know that Goff made the Pro Bowl roster this year, right? Probably not. Living in the past is so much easier, right?

  7. “Goff agreed with my explanation that guys who win are the ones who get talked about.”

    Yeah. That’s the only explanation. No other explanations apply. Just that one.

  8. Goof, really just keep your mouth shut. What did you have to gain by this ? Other than expressing your man crush for Cousins.

  9. Quarterbacks are paid to win games, not to make pretty throws. They not only have to win regular season games, but they are also expected to win super bowls. There are quarterbacks who are accurate, with tremendous arm strength and so forth, but they sometimes make mental mistakes and throw interceptions, often enough to prevent their team from winning. I would put Andy Dalton, Alex Smith and Matt Stafford in the category of quarterbacks who are good passers but they just haven’t won often enough. The jury is still out on Kirk Cousins. The Redskins have not had a good defensive team, so we may not know whether it is Cousins’ fault that his win loss record is not very impressive.

  10. That would make it a pretty tough division with 4 good QB’s…Wilson, Garoppolo, Cousins, Goff

  11. Interestingly over at the Washington Post not one article yet about how Cousins was just dissed by his team with the trade for the elderly Alex Smith. There were endless sob stories about the Great Gimmick’s treatment, but that just proves the Post only cares about black athletes.

  12. Goff is a 2nd year QB who hasn’t achieved anything but a 1 and done playoff performance. Russell Wilson won a SB in his 2nd year, and if it weren’t for a faulty play call by a lame QC would have won a 2nd SB in his 3rd year. All this talk about young QB’s who’ve done nothing seems to be the millennial way today…they’ve zero reference of watching Montana, Marino, Bradshaw, etc, etc back in the day. Those were QB’s. Today’s young QB’s are all talk and no action

  13. The Cardinals as a whole are too old for him. If he truly wants to win over all else, he’ll look at the younger teams that are either right there close in terms of talent (Jags) or one that has all the talent but just needs a QB (Broncos). Beyond that he starts looking at teams that are just a tad shy of talent in some areas (Bills) and then those teams that haven’t made the playoffs but could with a good young QB and a few more additions at key spots (Giants, Chargers and even Miami). After that it’s just the money throwers (Cleveland, Jets, etc.).

    Of course there is one other intriguing possibility and that would be New England. I know, I know, seems implausible, but this is BB we’re talking about and if BB plans to keep coaching after Brady retires he’s going to need someone to step right in. Brady cannot keep playing at this level for another 5 years. He can’t right? Seriously, the guy has to start dropping off correct??? (Then again he might be an alien and therefore his lifespan is opposite of a dog and he’s really only about 16 years old right now.)

  14. “Eh. Maybe… He does know that he would make the Vikings instant contenders to win the Lombardi. They almost did it with freaking Case Keenum after all”.

    Keenum wasn’t playing defense when Foles slapped 31 points on that defense. I think you have more holes then QB to fill.

  15. Cousins will go to Denver. It is silly to think otherwise. Cardinals are currently 3rd best in a mediocre division (saying this as a ‘Hawks fan), Vikings are just snakebit and he’d always be in Aaron Rodgers’s shadow. Jaguars aren’t ready to move on from Bortles, Jets and Bills still have to play the Patriots twice a year.

    AFC West looked to be tough this year, then wasn’t. Rivers is a year older, Raiders took a huge step back, KC is all-in on a QB with one start. Denver has a good enough supporting cast to make the playoffs and win a game or 3 with competent QB play.

    Cousins is sick of playing on a loser with incompetent management. Denver still has a lot of 2015 super bowl champs on their roster. Denver has the money to sign him. Denver also has a pronounced homefield advantage. Of course, anything can happen, and often does, but Denver is the most likely it seems.

    MN has won 4 of the last 5 vs GB. 1 without Rodgers.

  17. Seattle should make a push for him. Wilson’s career path is taking the same downward spiral Clownin Kap’s did.

  18. Goff needs to concentrate on himself and not worry about others. Let’s see what he does this ear—now that the league has a book on him. The Rams had a lot of things go there way last year (few injuries, playing teams at the right time, etc). To expect that this year would be foolish on his part.

  19. He did not fleece the redskins. They decided against extending him at a reasonable price several years ago. The skins were the ones to tag him. Not to mention the owner treated him like an also ran. my guess is he goes to Denver because of the Mike shanahan connection.

  20. Cousins is a very, very good QB who has played the off-field game well. He has been and will continue to be overpaid. This offseason will have a fun to watch QB carousel. Cousins is only one of a half dozen very good QB’s that will be relocating.

  21. He is looking at it wrong. If they sign Cousins they might be able to afford all their good defenders. I would take my chance with Cousins over them drafting someone and I don’t think this draft is that good for QBs.

  22. Carson Wentz:
    I love the challenge of playing in the NFC East, going up against great QB’s like Dak,Kurt and Eli.

    Jared Goff:
    I don’t want to have to go up against Cousins twice a year.

    WENTZ>goff

    No kidding. I think everyone figured that out a couple months ago
