It was rumored that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins would release a video on social media that showed off where he was in his recovery from a torn achilles tendon suffered in week 8 vs the Green Bay Packers last season.

But Kirk had a better idea. Like much of the NFL world, the 35-year-old veteran QB is in Las Vegas this week for the many Super Bowl festivities taking place in the desert. Those festivities include the NFL Honors ceremony tonight, where the league is announcing all of the 2023-24 season awards (MVP, DPOY, OPOY, ROY, etc).

Kirk Cousins, Cam Jordan steal show at NFL Honors

When Kirk Cousins and Cam Jordan took the stage, though, the show went next level (something that has become synonymous with Kirk lately). Suddenly, shirtless dancers took the stage and “My Pony” came on, as Kirk and Cam looked at each other in “confusion”. You can guess what happened next. Let’s just say… Kirko’s achilles looks pretty good.

There are so many layers to what happened on that Las Vegas stage tonight. The most obvious, is how much of a king Kirk Cousins is. The Minnesota Vikings would be stupid to let this dude get away.

But as previously mentioned, Kirk got a chance to show off his healing achilles tendon in the best and most attention-grabbing way possible, with this performance. Most of the NFL executives he would want to prove his recovery to were in the Las Vegas audience tonight. Those who weren’t will soon be notified, if they weren’t watching on TV for themselves.

The least talked about storyline to Kirk’s choreographed on-stage dance routine tonight, though, was his partner. Let’s not forget that it was less than one year ago that Cam Jordan used a summer training program to talk shit about Cousins, saying that the best players think fast, even if the decisions they make aren’t always the best decisions. That those who make “slow right decisions, we love ’em. Call ’em Kirk Cousins”.
