Kirk Cousins had quite the brain fart on Saturday and his head coach was just as confused as everyone else.
Saturday night as the first half was coming to a close between the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins, Kirk Cousins gave us literally the best “WTF” moment from this season. With the clock winding down in the first half, instead of finding a way to stop it on the drive so they could get some more points on the board, Cousins took a knee instead.
This was a play that confused everyone watching this NFC East battle, and that included his head coach.
As the teams were going into halftime, Gruden was asked about the play and quite frankly, he had no idea what the hell just happened either.
Well, Coach, none of know really, so join the club, you’re not alone.
In reality, this was indeed just a simple brain fart; we all have them from time to time. The only difference is, when you’re an NFL quarterback playing on national television on a Saturday night for all to see, this is the worst possible time to have one of those moments.
