After being given the Redskins' starting quarterback job back in August, Kirk Cousins decided to just go out and break a ton of records.
Most passing yards in a single season in franchise history? It's now his. Most total touchdowns by a Washington signal caller in a season? His too. And most times having a fairly innocuous yet impassioned three-word phrase impersonated by other people? It's not officially his, but it's probably his.
Yet Cousins is showing that he doesn't just want to limit his record-breaking to 2015. 2016 is a year that needs to feel the wrath of a the motivated 27-year-old as well, apparently.
So far, he's off to a good start.
Recently, a video of the Burgundy and Gold's passer playing catch with the ever-talented Antonio Brown was released, but it was just a small snippet of footage that left people wondering: Why was the Burgundy and Gold's passer playing catch with the ever-talented Antonio Brown? Thankfully, the reason for their getting together has finally become clear: They were trying to break the world record, a distinction held by Drew Brees and Odell Beckham Jr., for the most one-handed catches in a minute. Those two had set the bar at 33.
33? That's it? Seriously? For this duo of young stars? Don't you see the determination in their eyes? Did they really think 33 would be safe from this cold-blooded man?
And this intensely focused man?
It turns out that 33 was in fact child's play for the Washington passer and Pittsburgh receiver, who ended up reaching 40. That's a whole touchdown and extra point better than Breesus and OBJ. You like that?
Afterward, Kirk and AB embraced, reveling in the moment in which they took down one of the NFL's most decorated QBs and the guy who has practically turned the one-handed catch into an art form. Bro hug alert:
