Iced Out Kirk Cousins is Back and Better than Ever

The Minnesota Vikings won again on Sunday and they did it in the same confounding fashion as many of their previous four victories. They didn’t play very well but they played just well enough to beat the Miami Dolphins and improve to 5-1 on the season (1st in NFC North).

Kirk Cousins was good, not great, and really struggled in the first half. But the Vikings got the job done. This as reports of an imminent extension for the 34-year-old QB floated around the internet.

Iced-Out Kirk Cousins

But if Cousins is stressing about his play on the field or his future in Minnesota, you wouldn’t have known it on the team plane back from Miami. Not while he was wearing sunglasses and what looks like five different iced-out chains across his neck. Bling bling, frickers.

Combined, those chains probably cost more than five suburban Twin Cities houses. Probably weigh more than a medium-sized dog. Of course, the whole vibe matters. To compliment the chains, Cousins went with a plain white t-shirt tucked into what look to be blue jeans.

There’s no video evidence, but to complete the look, I think it’s safe to assume Kirk’s feet are floating comfortably in a pair of fresh white New Balance sneakers. Dawning Christian Darrisaw’s chain a few weeks ago made Cousins an internet sensation yet again. But this takes the icy Cousins legend to a whole new level.
