Zach Brown wishes he could take his words back.
The former teammate of Cousins and current Philadelphia Eagles linebacker had a lot to say before the team got their chance to take the field.
“Cousins, I think every defense is going to want that guy to throw the ball. For me, that’s probably the weakest part of their offense is him. Everything else is good. They’ve got a good running game, probably one of the best in the league. They’ve got real good receivers. You just want them to pass the ball. You want Kirk Cousins to get it in his hands.”
Well, Cousins brought his A-game on Sunday, throwing for 333 yards, 4 touchdowns and a 138.4 QBR.
He took the high road when asked about his former teammate’s comments:
“I didn’t even know what he said,” Cousins said. “I really do stay ignorant, not read anything and that’s for my best interest. But Zach was a teammate in Washington. He’s one of the better linebackers I’ve played with or against. Have a lot of respect for him, and if you’re trying to write a story about how it was a motivator this week, it wasn’t, because I didn’t even know about it.”
The Vikings official Twitter account wasn’t taking the high road as they posted “The Weakest Link” in quotation marks as well as Cousins’ stats for the game that was certainly a response back to Brown.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
