Former Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins turned "You Like That!” into a rallying cry when he was in Washington.
Now, as the quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, he is making the phrase special for his new team.
Cousins filed an official trademark on the phrase "You Vike That!" with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on Thursday.
That means the phrase could be used on hats, shirts… You name it.
Washington fans will remember where the popular catch phrase came from.
Cousins threw three second half touchdown passes to bring the Redskins back from 24-0 deficit to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-30, in 2015.
It was the largest comeback in franchise history, and Cousins threw for 317 yards during it. He completed the game-winning touchdown pass to Jordan Reed with 28 seconds left — and then stormed into the locker room.
“YOU LIKE THAT,” Cousins shouted in the FedEx Field tunnel. “YOU. LIKE. THAT.”
Turns out he was yelling at our own Tarik El-Bashir at the time.
And the rest is history.

NEW YORK -- Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid have settled collusion lawsuits against the NFL.
In a three-sentence statement released Friday, the NFL said:
"For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL. As a result of those discussions, the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances. The resolution of this matter is subject to a confidentiality agreement so there will be no further comment by any party."
Kaepernick's lawyer tweeted an identical statement.
Kaepernick and Reid filed collusion grievances against the league, saying they were blacklisted because of protests during the national anthem at games. Kaepernick has not played in the league since 2016, while Reid missed three games last season before signing with Carolina.

Every summer, football fans get entertained by Hard Knocks. The specific team doesn't matter; the access brings fans inside an NFL training camp in a way that only players and coaches get to experience.
For the teams, most bristle at the possibility of going on the show. There are plenty of reasons. Coaches are more secretive than CIA employees, but even more than, going on Hard Knocks means the team missed the playoffs the year before but did not have a coaching change.
Well, the Redskins fit that criteria. So could the Burgundy and Gold land on the HBO show this August? The oddsmakers have weighed in.
It makes sense that the Raiders would be the favorite for Hard Knocks. Their coach, Jon Gruden, is probably one of the most recognizable faces and names in the NFL. They'll have plenty of drama, both on the field as Gruden looks to rebuild the organization, and off, as the team is in turmoil about where to play games in 2019 before a planned move to Las Vegas in 2020. They even have Mike Mayock, the former NFL Network star turned Oakland GM.
Nobody wants to watch the Lions. Be honest.
Then come the Redskins. Word is the front office wants to avoid the show, and the team lacks the star power of other organizations. But it could be fun. Jim Tomsula mic'd up. Jay Gruden has a great sense of humor. Josh Norman and Derrius Guice would be fan favorites, and the HBO producers excel at creating characters out of rookies and undrafted types. There could be a rookie QB.
The Giants and Niners also present compelling stories. New York has major star power in Odell Beckham and Saquon Barkley. San Francisco has Jimmy Garoppolo working back from an injury and a staff that might be soon feeling the heat after two years missing the playoffs.
Looking at the options, the Raiders make sense being the favorite, but don't count the Redskins out either. Hard Knocks will be here soon, and a Gruden seems likely to be on it.
