Game 920 | September 24, 2019 | Kirk Cousins, Mark Rosen
Early in is second season as the Vikings quarterback, Cousins spoke at the first ever meeting of the Dunkers at Minikahda Country Club. He recalled meeting Viking communications director and former Dunkers Head Coach Bob Hagan on his first visit to Minnesota. “How was your dinner at Murray’s last night,” Hagan asked. “The food was great, but it was a little pricey,” said the man who had just signed a three-year guaranteed $84 million contract. He extolled the virtues of many teammates by name…with high praise for his receiving corps. “One thing you quickly learn about Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph is that they are all wide open on every play.”
