Vikings’ Kirk Cousins Takes Bold Approach with Coronavirus



Kirk Cousins

Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback Kirk Cousins has a unique approach to the concerns regarding coronavirus and talked about his “survival of the fittest” approach during an appearance on “10 Questions with Kyle Brandt” podcast on Spotify.

“If I die, I die” Cousins said during the appearance. “I kind of have a peace about that.”

Cousins made some interesting comments during the interview, such as his belief that masks don’t help to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but added that he respects the “concerns” of others regarding the virus.

When Cousins was asked to rate his level of concern over contracting the coronavirus on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being “the person who says, ‘Masks are stupid, you’re all a bunch of lemmings,’ and 10 being ‘I’m not leaving my master bathroom for the next 10 years”, Cousins gave another interesting answer.

“I’m not gonna call anybody stupid, for the trouble it would get me in, but, I’m about a .000001” he said.

“I want to respect what other people’s concerns are. For me, personally, just talking no one else can get the virus, what is your concern if you could get it, I would say I’m gonna go about my daily life” he continued.

“If I get it, I’m gonna ride it out” Cousins stated. “I’m gonna let nature do its course. Survival-of-the-fittest kind of approach. And just say, if it knocks me out, it knocks me out. I’m going to be OK. You know, even if I die. If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that.”

In case you’re concerned about Cousins not wearing a mask, Cousins says wearing a mask “is really about being respectful to other people.

“It really has nothing do with my own personal thoughts,” Cousins said.
