Kirk Cousins “not too concerned” with Kwesi Adofo-Mensah’s comments

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins signed a one-year extension with the team in March, but General Manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah didn’t sound totally convinced that was the right decision in a recent interview.

Adofo-Mensah told Jori Epstein of USA Today that the “one asset where you get nervous about not burning it down is quarterback” and called Cousins a good quarterback, but not one in the class of Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes. He went on to call winning a Super Bowl likelier with that type of quarterback, but Cousins didn’t sound overly put out about the comparison.

During a Thursday press conference, Cousins was asked about Adofo-Mensah’s comments and said he hasn’t spent much time pondering their meaning.

“I haven’t given it much thought with training camp being so busy and consuming so much of my time. I’m not too concerned about it,” Cousins said, via Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com.

The Vikings did not radically overhaul their roster after hiring Adofo-Mensah and head coach Kevin O’Connell earlier this year and their results in 2022 will likely determine if next year brings a bigger shakeup at quarterback and elsewhere.

  1. Why should be Cousins be upset, he knows he still getting paid millions of dollars.

  2. Cousins should be insulted by Kwesi’s comments. but he is showing class by not reacting to those insulting comments.

  3. And just exactly how many Tom Brady’s and Patrick Mahomes are there. TWO. If you can win one with Matt Stafford, (who is also not in that class of qb) then you should be able to win one with a Kirk Cousins.

  4. Insulted by it? Why? He’s an adult male making $40m per year. If his feelings are getting hurt by that comment then I don’t want him as my QB anyway. Enough!

  5. When it comes to winning anything meaningful, Cousins is in over his head. Sounds very much like the Vikes GM may be in way over his head, too.

  6. To the extent its even that bad or directly derogatory to Cousins, it’s probably only about the 153rd worst thing that has been said about Cousins in the last 6 months. Big whoop.

  7. Not “too” concerned he said. Then he lined up to take the snap on 4th down in the red zone with under to minutes to go, down by 6… And was sacked for a 30 yard loss.

  8. All this really comes down to Kwesi being a green noob for saying something like this about your franchise QB.
    He seems fond of sounding smart to the media.
    But I think he seems like the weak link here. Wasn’t impress with his draft and trades.
    I just hope that O’Connell can overcome Kwesi’s stupid decisions and idiotic public comments.

    Stafford won more big games last year then Cousins has in his entire career. That’s the big difference, Cousins has been on multiple playoff teams or teams with enough talent to be in the playoffs and he failed each and every time. Stafford clearly isn’t on the same level as Brady and Mahomes but he’s clearly better then Cousins.

  11. it great to see a player (QB) not get worked up into a fit, threaten to stay out of camp, over something like this

  12. He’s welcome to get worked up into a fit, threaten to stay out of camp or anything else he wants to do if he could win just one significant playoff game. I’m not holding my breath . . .
