How Eagles fans can thank Kirk Cousins for getting the Eagles into the playoffs

New, comments

Thanks for the assist, Kurt

NFL: Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Last season the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17, which sent the Buffalo Bills to the playoffs. Andy Dalton threw three touchdowns, and Bills fans showed their gratitude by donating over $415,000 to his charity foundation. It was a very cool movement, and it spawned a spin-off: after the Jaguars knocked the Steelers out of the playoffs, Bengals fans donated to Blake Bortles’ charity.

This year, the Eagles found themselves in a similar situation, needing some help to get into the playoffs. I suggest we do something similar. We could donate to Mitchell Trubisky’s charity, but he had a pedestrian game and threw no touchdowns. Jordan Howard ran for 109 yards and 2 touchdowns, making him and his cause a worthy recipient. But there’s someone who is more deserving of this recognition, and he’s near and dear to Eagles fans’ hearts.

We should donate to Kirk Cousin’s charities.

Cousins threw for 132 yards, his fewest ever as a starter. It took him 33 attempts to do so, for a pathetic 4 yards an attempt. His highlights of the game were complaining to Adam Thielen and then nearly melting down on the sideline.

Thank you Kurt, the Eagles couldn’t have done it without you.

Cousins has several charities he supports, helping organizations fight sex trafficking, build affordable housing, and assist the disabled and their families.

Kirk Cousins helped the Eagles, now we can help him.
