Former Spartans QB Kirk Cousins on COVID-19: “If I die, I die”

The former Michigan State Spartan clearly isn't worried about COVID-19.

Well, that's one way to let people know that you're not worried about the COVID-19 pandemic that's practically turned the world upside down in 2020.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, a former Michigan State Spartan, was very nonchalant with the thought of contracting the illness. During an appearance on Spotify’s “10 Questions” podcast hosted by NFL Network’s Kyle Brandt, Cousins had this to say:

“If I die, I die.”

Brandt asked, “If one is the person who says, ‘Masks are stupid, you’re all a bunch of lemmings’ and 10 is, ‘I’m not leaving my master bathroom for the next 10 years,’ where do you land?”

Cousins responded, “I’m not gonna call anybody stupid, for the trouble it would get me in. But I’m about a .000001.”

When asked why, Cousins had this to say:

“I want to respect what other people’s concerns are. For me personally, just talking no one else can get the virus, what is your concern if you could get it, I would say I’m gonna go about my daily life. If I get it, I’m gonna ride it out. I’m gonna let nature do its course. Survival-of-the-fittest kind of approach. And just say, if it knocks me out, it knocks me out. I’m going to be OK. You know, even if I die. If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that.

“So that’s really where I fall on it, so my opinion on wearing a mask is really about being respectful to other people. It really has nothing to do with my own personal thoughts.”

According to the latest numbers from the NFL from yesterday, 10 players and team personnel tested positive for COVID-19 during the League's latest round of testing.

After attending Holland Christian High School in Holland, MI, Cousins went on to star with the Spartans. He was drafted by the Washington Redskins, where he spent six seasons before signing a free-agent deal with the Vikings in 2018, which was the highest paying in the NFL at the time.
