Kirk Cousins and Cole Beasley, a.k.a., The Big Head Machine, Run C-19, Cheech and Wrong, Bonnie and Sigh, The Toys Of Summer, Shawshank Attention, The Trash Brothers, The Legion of Loon, Breaking Sad, or simply, Dumb and Dumber. You can decide which is which.

Just over half of the United States is fully vaccinated, but we have all the data needed to show how effective the jabs are, and by contrast, how stupid people like Cousins and Beasley are. Pfizer and Moderna have had outstanding efficacy this entire run, and the former was most recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Moderna should be next to follow suit.

Still, these fake-ass martyrs are doing all they can (in an NFL that has made it close to impossible to function without being vaccinated) to tell us all the ways they’re not getting that jab while being stupid. This month, Cousins said his decision is personal, mentioned he might use plexiglass, and ultimately says he’ll do everything he could to remain on the field (except get the shot!). The Vikings had the league’s worst vaccination rate just three weeks ago, and they’re still among the lowest in the NFL, so much so that the organization brought in Dr. Michael Osterholm, whose an epidemiologist and Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Osterholm spoke to the team earlier this week about getting that jab, per Fox 9 in Minnesota.

Of the meeting, Cousins said, “It was a great meeting, it was informative. And it was what it was.”

And this dude Beasley. He released an album back in 2018, and it was about what you’d expect. Last month, he dropped an anti-vaccination song. He’s been extremely loud about his anti-vaccine views. Now, he’s one of four players out because of COVID protocol. Of course, it isn’t his fault, though.

Washington Football Team head coach and cancer survivor (!!) Ron Rivera spoke about vaccine misinformation last week, so we’ll end here:

“Gen Z is relying on [their cell phones],” Rivera said. “And you got some, quite frankly, f——— a———-, that are putting a bunch of misinformation out there, leading people to die. That’s frustrating to me, that these people are allowed to have a platform. And then, one specific news agency, every time they have someone on, I’m not a doctor, but the vaccines don’t work. Or, I’m not an epidemiologist, but vaccines are going to give you a third nipple and make you sterile. Come on. That, to me? That should not be allowed.”
