Vikings fans plead Tom Brady to make NFL comeback following season-ending injury to QB Kirk Cousins

The Minnesota Vikings currently hold the second position in the NFC North with a 4-4 record. After opening the season with a victory, they suffered losses in the next two games. Nevertheless, the team delivered outstanding performances in subsequent matches, including a noteworthy upset victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Vikings stretched their winning streak by clinching a victory over the Green Bay Packers. However, in week 8, their momentum was halted as quarterback Kirk Cousins suffered a season-ending injury. With uncertainty surrounding the quarterback position, fans even called for NFL legend Tom Brady, often referred to as the GOAT (Greatest of All Time), to come out of retirement and lead the team in the upcoming matches.

Vikings supporters request Tom Brady to make NFL return

The Minnesota Vikings made an interesting move in the 2023 NFL Draft when they selected Jaren Hall in the fifth round. Hall now finds himself on the roster, serving as a backup to Cousins. Additionally, Nick Mullens is also part of the quarterback room, but he remains on injured reserve for at least one more week. Given this situation, the team faces a decision that requires careful consideration regarding their starting quarterback for the upcoming match.

Seizing this opportunity, Vikings fans reached out to Brady, hoping he might make another appearance on the field following his second retirement.

A fan wrote, “Vikings should send a serious phone call to Tom Brady, otherwise they’re sticking with the rookie rest of the way no reason to trade for a QB.”

The Vikings have faced recent struggles, but their roster is brimming with talented players who can wreak havoc on opposing teams. Some fans even humorously suggested a comeback by Tom Terrific, highlighting the team’s elite players.

A netizen wrote,” Dear @TomBrady: The @Vikings have:
-a solid offensive line
-Jordan Addison, KJ Osborne, and TJ Hockenson, and
-we get Justin Jefferson back in 2 weeks.
Please unretire and come play QB for the #Vikings.”

Just a few days ago, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said his quarterback Patrick Mahomes can touch TB12 in terms of accolades but reaching his seven Super Bowl titles is a big challenge. The California Cool’s seven rings and ten Super Bowl appearances are the dreams of every quarterback, as said by Pat earlier.

Some fans lured the ex-Bucs star to make a U-turn and stretch the number to 8 Super Bowl rings.

A fan wrote, “Oh, hey @TomBrady. Um, there’s a team up in Minnesota that could use a fill-in for the rest of the season. Maybe come back for another shot at a 💍?”

It marks the second time Brady has been urged to resume play. The New York Jets fans also requested that he play for the team following the potential season-ending injury of their veteran signal-caller Aaron Rodgers. Though TB12 sometimes teases fans with his potential comeback rumors, he is very unlikely to appear on the football field once again.

Kirk Cousins NFL season ends with a brutal injury

In the Vikings’ impressive 14-point victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Cousins suffered an injury midway through the fourth quarter when his right leg buckled while he was dropping back to pass. This unfortunate incident occurred as he was sacked on the play by the Packers’ defensive tackle, Kenny Clark.

The quarterback managed to hop to the sideline on his left leg for an evaluation in the medical tent. However, he was subsequently carted to the locker room and couldn’t return to the game. The four-time Pro Bowler will undergo an MRI to assess the extent of his injury, but head coach Kevin O’Connell expressed concern that it may be an Achilles tendon injury.

“We will figure out the severity of it and let you guys know what my fear of is right now of the injury. When we confirm that as an organization we will try to move forward in the short term knowing that I’m not sure anybody in this league overall was playing as well as Kirk at the position this year,” via AP News.

If the 35-year-old tore his tendon that is most likely to happen, his season would be over. He completed 23 of 31 passes for 274 yards while scoring two touchdown passes before suffering the blow.
