Houston's history is such that if anyone's getting screwed on a Watson trade, it's them.

Note to the author, Kirk Cousins is not an above average QB.

Super Chronic: FreeLawyer: Note to the author, Kirk Cousins is not an above average QB.

Lemme think this through. Here is each NFL starting QB other than Cousins, followed by my "is he better than Cousins?" gut reaction (Y/N, or M for maybe). Assessments are based on value demonstrated through 2020 and not potential.

NFCE - Prescott Y, Hurts N, Smith N, Jones M
NFCN - Rodgers Y, Trubisky N, Goff N
NFCS - Winston/Hill N, Ryan Y, Brady Y, Bridgewater M
NFCW - Wilson Y, Stafford Y, Murray M, Garoppolo N
AFCE - Allen Y, Newton N, Tua/Fitz N, Darnold N
AFCN - Roethlisberger M, Mayfield Y, Jackson Y, Burrow N
AFCS - Tannehill Y, Watson Y, Wentz N, Minshew N
AFCW - Mahomes Y, Carr Y, Lock N, Herbert Y

Obviously the 2021 draft and free agency are going to change some names here (looking at you, Minshew, no offense). I penciled in Newton for New England but who knows what happens there. But as of now, I count 14 Ys, 4 Ms and 13 Ns. That puts Cousins smack in the middle tier. Start to factor potential into the mix and maybe flip Burrow, Murray, Tua and Trevor Lawrence into the Y category and, yeah, Cousins is starting to look more like a low-middle type.

This ends my comprehensive analytic analysis of NFL quarterbacks. Your assertion checks out.


Give him a line where he's not constantly running for his life and Borrow is far and away better than Cousins

This is a stupid article. It is nothing even remotely as stupid as the Walker trade. Not even close. Not by a mile. Everyone knew the Walker trade was bad when it happened 30 freakin' years ago and no one even gave a shiat about draft picks back then. It's also never happening. No way. No how. Stupid article.
