That's the point, look at his stats, up and down as far as yardage goes.  The team built around him is built for success, Kirk is better than Case, look what he did with us, after losing his top two 1000 yard receivers and basically Reed for most of the season, along with CT.  Look at the Vikings weapons and defense.     They also got lucky on that TD in the divisional round in the last seconds that got them to the NFCC anyhow.  Kirk gives them an even better chance to take it to the next level, imo and in the Vikings opinion (obviously).   At least it wasn't about the money........you know, cause I'm sure the Jets probably are offering 90 million fully guaranteed over 3 years, so he would be giving up 6 million dollars    #AlexSmithMVP
