Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs made an appearance on Good Morning Football to talk about team expectations, Kirk Cousins, fashion and the Minneapolis Miracle.
Coming off such a great season, there are high expectations for this year. People want to know if it is going to be a Super Bowl or bust for the Vikings, but Diggs doesn’t feed into the hype.
“As a team we look forward to each and every day,” said Diggs. “We are just a great-coached team, and we try not to jump the gun.”
New additions to the team allow the Vikings to continue improving. Diggs said he’s built strong chemistry with quarterback Kirk Cousins in a short period of time.
“He’s a likable guy,” said Diggs when speaking about Cousins. “Everybody loves being around him. I love catching passes from him. I love playing for the guy. As far as his approach for the game, he’s teaching me some stuff.”
Off the field, Diggs has a passion for fashion. He is a trendsetter and definitely has his own style.
When asked where he gets his inspiration, Diggs said, “I really dress according to mood. It all depends on my mood and how I feel.”
Vikings fans were in a great mood after the Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints. Diggs gave a play-by-play of the Minneapolis Miracle through his eyes.
“We had just came back from an incomplete pass,” Diggs recalled. “And I was like, ‘We have one more chance, we can do it.’ While I am running, I see Marcus Williams, Saints safety. I take a snapshot of him, then I jump up and I try to high point the ball. In a split second, he didn’t touch me. Nobody touched me. Just like that, I figured out he missed. When I turned around, I tried to keep my feet, I was like, ‘I have to keep my feet because I’m running. We are going for it all.’ ”
The Minneapolis Miracle catch from Diggs will go down as one of the best in history.
“It was moment that I couldn’t even describe,” said Diggs. “For the people that were there, everybody felt it.”Stefon Diggs Wakes Up with ‘Good Morning Football’
