Max Kellerman, an ESPN analyst, and sports celebrity is trending online due to his remarks on Kirk Cousins’ physique, according to The Spun.
This week when appearing on the Keyshawn, JWill & Max Show, Max was asked what he thought of Kirk’s trending video.
In the live section, Max observed, “Cousins is not giving himself the best shot to be as good as he could be if that’s the kind of form he’s in.”
Kirk should “go lift some weights,” Max continued, before adding, “You could at least be in shape. I’m 50 years old, and I look better than that.
The video of Kirk dancing in an airplane on the way home from a game went viral on Twitter on Sunday (November 6).
Kirk enjoyed a lavish celebration after the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Washington Commanders, his former team. The Vikings quarterback and his colleagues can be seen in the video singing and dancing inside the aircraft, and Kirk is wearing no shirt and many enormous chains around his neck.
Many fans found the viral videos of the mid-air celebration amusing, while others were just happy the Vikings won.

In response to the widely shared video, Kirk gave the Manning Cast on ESPN an explanation of the origins of the custom of wearing enormous chains while celebrating.
After our game against the [New Orleans] Saints a few weeks ago, it really began to recover. They essentially converted first class on that aircraft home from London, which was an eight-hour flight, into a party,” he stated, according to The New York Post.
Before I knew it, I was wearing Christian Darrisaw’s chain, and everyone was snapping pictures to share on social media.
