The last time the NFC championship game happened

in the Superdome Kyle Rudolph Jersey , a quarterback on the wrong side of 40 found himself battered, bruised, and nearly broken in two. This time, the same thing could be on the agenda — absent an allegedly extra $10,000 inducement.Though Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald said nothing about a specific intent to force Saints quarterback Drew Brees to the sideline, Donald admitted that he and his teammates plan to aggressively pursue the future Hall of Famer on Sunday.“We got a gameplan, we’re going to stick to it and we’re going to get after him,” Donald told reporters on Thursday.Donald vowed to “get after” Brees no fewer than three times.“Anytime you play against a great quarterback like that, he’s going to do things a normal quarterback ain’t going to do,” Donald said. “So we know what to expect. We try to do what we got to do to try our best to make him uncomfortable and get after him and Linval Joseph Jersey , you know, but we got to stop the run first before we think about rushing the passer. They got two great backs we got to slow down and try to find ways to stop. After we do that, we’ll get after the quarterback and try and put some pressure on him.”There’s nothing wrong with vowing to “get after” a quarterback. Implicit in the message is a goal that always has been part of high-level, high-stakes football: If the defense can successfully “get after” the quarterback over and over and over again, the accumulation of occasions on which the quarterback was gotten after could get him out of the game.That continues to be the biggest flaw in the league’s pearl-clutching over the bounty scandal that came to a head during the 2009 NFC title game. As Saints coach Sean Payton demonstrated last week when wheeling a case containing more than $200,000, a Super Bowl ring, and a Super Bowl trophy into a meeting room, there’s already a clear incentive to do whatever is necessary — within the rules — to win. And it’s a given that it’s always easier to win when facing backups than when facing starters.Especially when the starter is one of the five or so greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game.Does that make it wrong to “get after” said quarterback? Hardly. Whether the end result is making him uncomfortable or making him incapable of continuing, the Rams have every reason to “get after” a guy who just turned 40 three days ago. I don’t get this at all" Minnesota Vikings 2019 OffseasonProFootballTalk floats Kirk Cousins to San Francisco trade possibilityNew Kirk Cousins Jersey ,189commentsI don’t get this at allCDTWhen the Minnesota Vikings signed quarterback Kirk Cousins to a three-year, $84 million, completely guaranteed contract in March of 2018, the logic seemed to be that the Vikings were married to Cousins for the entirety of that contract.(See how I didn’t make a Wisconsin joke there? Huh? Did ya?)Anyway, at least one prominent voice on the NFL landscape seems to think that might not be the case, and has even floated a theory wherein the Vikings and Cousins would part ways after the 2019 season.Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk has put the theory out there that, should Jimmy Garoppolo disappoint with the San Francisco 49ers and the Niners decide to turn him loose, the Vikings would then turn around and trade Cousins to the Niners to reunite him with Kyle Shanahan, who was Cousins’ offensive coordinator during part of his time with the Washington Redskins.According to this article from 49ers Webzone, if the Niners were to let Garoppolo go after the 2019 season Adrian Peterson Jersey , they would have to absorb just over $4 million in dead cap. The Vikings would then send Cousins, presumably coming off of his own disappointing season with the Vikings, to the Niners for the final year of his contract (absent some sort of extension).I’m honestly not sure how much there is to this whole thing. The Vikings’ front office and coaching staff seems to believe in Cousins, and they’re trying to do everything they can to build the offense around him. Cousins will also, presumably, have all his main weapons (Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph) around him for the foreseeable future, and he seems to have developed chemistry with those guys.This whole thing also seems to leave out the fairly minor point of John Randle Jersey , you know, precisely what the Vikings would do at quarterback in that situation. Do they turn around and sign the newly-released Garoppolo? Do they use their first pick on a rookie in what looks to be a loaded 2020 quarterback class?I don’t know. . .I mean, maybe the idea of trading Kirk Cousins sounds like a good idea to some people, but I just don’t see it. While this team has managed to retain a lot of its talent, the window is going to close (or, at the very least, see the opening become much more narrow) in the very near future. I just don’t see them turning things over to a rookie or an unproven quarterback in 2020 when they could keep Cousins and the rest of the offense together for another go-around.What say you, folks?
