Episode one is pretty entertaining.
Publish date:

If you want something done right you have to do it yourself, and that seems to be the approach Kirk Cousins has taken with every part of his life. 

The Vikings quarterback picked the team he wanted to play for, got the first fully guaranteed contract for a quarterback in NFL history, and now he's speaking for himself with the debut of his podcast, "The Officialize Experience Featuring Kirk Cousins." 

Cousins is the feature every week, but his buddy Kyle Schonewill pretty much leads the direction of the show by interviewing him. 

The first episode was pretty much Cousins recapping what happened in Green Bay and then buzzing through a fun segment they call "lightning round," of which here are some of his answers.

Cousins also talked about his incredible touchdown pass to Adam Thielen late in the fourth quarter. 

"Probably not a recommended throw. The safety was probably a little too far over to try to fit that in," he said. 

Well, it worked and it has unnamed coaches in the NFL telling Bleacher Report things like this: "You see what happens when you put him in a real organization with all-around good players. He could tear our league apart."
