Diggs believes Vikings could be 'really special' in future

Diggs believes Vikings could be 'really special' in future

The first year of the Kirk Cousins experiment didna€™t go well, with the Vikings regressing from a final four team to one of the 20 franchises that watch the playoffs from home. In a recent visit to the PFT Live set at the Super Bowl, Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs was asked to make the case for patience to Vikings fans.

a€œFirst year,a€ Diggs said. a€œNew system, new quarterback, new receivers. Everybodya€™s new. Still got to adjust, and you know therea€™s a lot of room for improvement. Wea€™ve had a lot of sparks. We had some good games. Some things that you saw that we could be really special. And doing it on a consistent basis is something thata€™s going to come with time. You cana€™t look forward to time. Ita€™s not working against us, ita€™s working with us.a€

Time is the key word, in multiple respects. The Vikings need to improve their offensive line, in order to give Cousins more time to find open receivers. While Case Keenum had the ability to scramble away from pressure, buying time until a receiver popped open, Cousins never got far from the pocket because he cana€™t.

Then therea€™s the issue of Cousinsa€™ performances in prime time and other big spots. The narrative has taken on a life of it own, and the best hope for the Vikings, frankly, will be to have as few night games as possible in 2019, something that is far more likely given the fact that the Vikings lost much of their luster in 2018.
