You could hear a pin drop when Kirk Cousins made one admission no one saw coming

Falcons quarterback Kirk Cousins just can’t catch a break.

But this time at least it’s all his fault.

And now you could hear a pin drop when Kirk Cousins made one admission no one saw coming.

A career of bad breaks

Few NFL quarterbacks have faced more sheer bad luck in recent years than Atlanta Falcons quarterback Kirk Cousins.

He was drafted by one of the most inept franchises of the past two decades, the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins.

And after spending six years total in the nation’s capital – three and a half of which he was one of the only bright spots for a team run by one of the worst owners in the history of sports, Dan Snyder – the team chose to let him walk in free agency.

From there, things seemed to be trending up when the Minnesota Vikings swooped in and made Cousins their franchise quarterback, surrounding him with a team that only seemed to be a true starting quarterback away from potentially being a Super Bowl contender.

But nothing seemed to break the Vikings way throughout Cousins time in Minnesota, and last year, just as the team seemed close to putting it all together, the quarterback suffered a season-ending torn ACL in a week either matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Such an injury would cause any professional athlete to be down in the dumps.

But Cousins has stayed shockingly positive during the recovery process.

LEGOs saved Cousins

So when he recently appeared on Barstool Sports’ Bussin’ With the Boys podcast, he was asked what got him through those tough days.

His answer surprised many, as he accredited his positive mindset to keeping himself occupied with LEGOs.

Cousins told the podcast that it all started when he took his sons to the Mall of America to buy some LEGOs to build.

He explained, “I looked at the LEGO (employee) at the entrance welcoming me in and I said ‘You’re with me, get a cart, we’re goin… Whatever (Cousins’ sons) say they want, throw it in the cart.’ And we’re gonna start building.”

Cousins continued by detailing what they built.

The quarterback said he and his sons “built the LEGO Concord, we built the space shuttle, we built the Home Alone house. We built the James Bond car.”

One of the show’s co-hosts, former NFL offensive lineman Taylor Lawen, then claimed that he’d previously built a LEGO Titanic, and attempted to compare builds with Cousins.

The Falcons quarterback responded, “My ceiling’s probably 7,000 pieces. That’s like 10,000 pieces. You’re deep.”

Despite earning hundreds of millions of dollars thus far in his NFL career, Kirk Cousins found solace during his recovery from a gruesome injury in something as simple as LEGOs.
