What Kirk Cousins may now not have enough money for his recognition was once an embarrassing efficiency on Monday Evening Soccer. However in Week 2, that’s exactly what came about because the Philadelphia Eagles knocked off the Minnesota Vikings whilst Cousins had his worst sport since early within the 2020 season.
And when Cousins loses — usually and primetime video games — the virtual global erupts, skewering the quarterback with complaint, memes, and the whole thing in between. Uber Facts, a well-liked Twitter account with just about 14,000.000 fans, additionally joined within the amusing, lifting up Cousins’ “quarterback file” on Monday Evening Soccer.
In 12 profession begins, groups led by means of Cousins are 2-10 (.166). If one quantifies QB file as a profitable statistic comparing one participant in a 53-man group recreation, then the mark is the worst by means of a quarterback in NFL historical past.
The tweet is noteworthy as Uber Info infrequently posts about sports activities. As an alternative, it provides random details, nearly at the hour, detailing trivia-like bits about nature, animals, other people, intercourse, geography, historical past, politics, and so on. Hours after the Cousins tweet, for instance, Uber Facts posted, “If Elon Musk misplaced 99.9% of his internet price, he would nonetheless have about $273 million.”
For Cousins, the venom geared toward Monday night time performances is rather warranted. His profession passer ranking is 98.3 — the sixth-best of all time — however on Monday nights, the mark falls to 85.2. He’s in charge of a 17-touchdown, 11-interception break up this is incongruent together with his commonplace same old of play on Mondays.
In fact, Cousins isn’t aided by means of his groups’ defenses in the ones 12 Monday night time video games. On moderate, a group with Cousins at QB1 surrenders 25.0 elements consistent with sport to combatants on Monday Evening Soccer. To take care of a successful quarterback file — for any one, in reality — that points-allowed determine must be nearer to twenty.0 elements consistent with sport.
However no such good fortune for Cousins.
His groups’ defenses are inexplicably snakebitten on Monday nights, he does now not do sufficient to avoid the groups’ struggles, and his private file is 2-10 accordingly. In reality, Cousins’ handiest two wins on Monday Evening Soccer befell towards the similar opponent, the Chicago Bears at Soldier Box.
Now, with Uber Info losing the information to fourteen million souls and bots, Cousins’ Monday-related turmoil is just about family wisdom.
The Vikings don’t play once more on a Monday night time in 2022.
