Kirk Cousins’ reserve Kellen Mond was terrible in the Minnesota Vikings’ last preseason game.

The Vikings fell to 2-0 in the preseason after losing 7-17 to the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday.
Moon collapsed under the pressure, throwing a terrible pick early in the game on a third and an 8.
Minnesota Vikings: Kirk Cousins’ drop to Kellen Mond is huge
For the Vikings fans who want the team to deviate from Cousins yesterday, be careful what you wish for. Though the franchise has had quarterback stability issues for most of its history, Moon doesn’t seem even remotely capable of starting regular-season games. Mannion called his number a couple of times, but the Results were anything but great.
As long as Cousins is playing and healthy, the Vikings have a top-12 quarterback under center. More importantly, he’s already acquainted with new offensive line head coach Kevin O’Connell want to run from their previous collaboration in Washington. The good news is that Cousins has remained healthy for the most part throughout his life NFL Career from the state of Michigan.
When it comes to Moon, it’s better that he throws that pick to the 49ers defense in a meaningless exhibition than in a game that actually matters. While he still has advantages as an NFL quarterback, consider that it wasn’t until his fourth year at Texas A&M during a COVID season that he really went under Jimbo Fischer. Moon is still worth investing time in, but it certainly has a long way to go.
Hopefully he can learn from this wiretapping, but boy did it look awful on the TV broadcast.
