It’s sometimes hard to believe that Cousins‘ time in Minnesota is real, but here we are. It’s been very disappointing on the field and he now tried to take snaps from the wrong player.
Lining up behind the center is literally rule number one of playing quarterback. It’s what you expect kids in the fourth grade to know.
Yet, on fourth down, Cousins forgot it!

Everyone makes mistakes, but this is just unbelievably bad. Most of the time, I don’t like to bury people for screwing up.
However, if you line up behind the right guard on fourth and goal as an NFL QB, you deserve to get roasted for the foreseeable future.

The NFL is truly the content machine that never stops giving! Cousins is just the latest example of that fact.
