Zach Brown fails to check self, ends up wrecking self

Kirk Cousins is a stone cold killer

NFL: Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

We don’t generally report on a lot of the roster moves made by other teams. But, given the circumstances behind this one, I think it’s worth noting.

Leading up to the Minnesota Vikings’ Week 6 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles this past Sunday, Eagles linebacker Zach Brown. . .who was a teammate of Kirk Cousins in Washington. . .loudly declared that Cousins was the “weak link” in the Minnesota offense.

Well, after being a part of the crew that allowed 38 points to the Vikings and got torched for four Cousins touchdown passes, the Eagles apparently decided who the weak link was for themselves.

On Monday, the Eagles released Brown, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. (Numerous other sources are reporting it, too, but I saw Schefter’s post first.) Multiple teams are expected to be interested, according to Schefter, apparently because there’s a shortage of linebackers who allow their mouths to write checks that their backsides don’t have sufficient funds to cover.

After the game, Brown bravely declared that he didn’t want to answer questions about Cousins. Curious, that. At least if anyone asks him now, he has sufficient time to formulate a decent answer.

Don’t make Kirk Cousins angry, folks. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.
