I think there's something to be said with how a GM assembles a team with regard to character. Talent doesn't trump all. Antonio Brown is without a doubt one of the best WRs in the NFL. Would I want him on my team? Not in a million years. What he brings into the locker room (and, potentially, onto the field) could be poison. Same for OBJ. I think the Vikes got rid of Diggs for that same reason.

Now, I'm not saying Minny has bad apples, but who knows what tension simmers in that room? And you can't tell me it doesn't impact the results.

That’s why it needs to largely be gutted and started over. Keep some pieces but it needs an overhaul. Get that trash out and start fresh. It will take years but when overall it is this bad, it’s the only way.

There’s so much more wrong with this team than Cousins....
He's just the most expensive limitation on the team, but certainly not the only or even biggest one.

It's the same thing I say about ISU: we'll never rise to the next level without high-quality OL. Spielman has been unable to make that a reality during his entire tenure, by any means.

Kubiak's coaching and schemes have been unable to largely hide the issue, too.
