I’m here to help you choose the right path so you don’t end up like Donovan from Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. Before the season began, I was very anti-Cooper Kupp. I never root for a player to fail, but I thought he was being overhyped due to his bowl performance. I even went on to call him Cooper “Overrated” Kupp on a few podcasts.
Don’t be like me.
As the season went on, I began to realize that I had been wrong. Kupp continually led rookie wide receivers in receiving yards until JuJu Smith-Schuster came on strong in the second half of the season. One of the tweets I sent about the rookie leaders was even shared and liked by Cooper’s grandma.
The rest of this article is dedicated to Carla Kupp. While I’m on the subject, I should mention that both Cooper’s grandfather (Jake) and father (Craig) were good enough to play football professionally as well. Maybe I should have done more research before throwing out negative terms.
