Kirk Cousins is fully aware that everyone struggles with his name

Kirk Cousins is fully aware that everyone struggles with his name

Kirk Cousins seems like a pretty easy name to spell or say, but apparently a portion of the population continues to struggle with it. Kirk took to social media to have some fun and provide yet another example.

My name is a real challenge for people!

They were going for "Kirk" and should get partial credit for having the correct four letters, I think, but this could say "Krik" or "Krite" and I'm not 100 percent sure which it is.

This is definitely not the first time, and certainly not the last time someone is going to screw this up. In fact, he got some fan mail last year for "Kirt."

If I'm going to rank the worst ways to attempt Kirk's name, I think "Krite" is probably the worst for all the obvious reasons. At least "Krik" you had all four of the correct letters, but you just didn't bother to put them in the right order. It happens.

If you have listened to the any sports radio caller in town, you know they also suffer from the Kirk/Curt/Kirt issue and Cousins can't escape it. I mean, the Kirk/Curt issue could strike anyone. No one is immune.

For Kirk's sake, hopefully a new contract will get that sorted out for everyone.

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Dwayne Haskins reflects on bond with Kobe Bryant from pre-draft workouts

Terrible news hit America on Sunday when word came out that basketball legend Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter and seven others. 

A tragic event for a man and a player that made an impact far beyond basketball. Bryant was known for many things, but more than any, it might have been his competitive spirit. A five-time NBA champion and an 18-time All-Star, Bryant's play was defined by a fluid game and an unstoppable spirit. 

For Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins, he got to see some of Bryant's spirit up close. Last year, before the NFL Draft, Haskins trained at Bryant's gym in Los Angeles, and their encounters made an impression on the signal-caller. 

"He's definitely a guy that brings a lot to the table as far as how he trains, how he prepares and what he expects out of his teammates. Very, very demanding," Haskins said of Bryant. "I want to be able to have that other tool, being able to have that edge that Kobe had. Of course, I play like that, but I'd be able to lead like that. That's why I studied Kobe."

Haskins is one of many young athletes that grew up watching Bryant, and for plenty, idolizing Bryant. 

After the news broke Sunday, Haskins reacted on Twitter.

Haskins said it well: RIP to a legend. Gone too soon.

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

The Pro Bowl may not count for anything other than an accolade on a player's resume, but it has delivered some memorable moments over the years. 

Maybe the best Pro Bowl play ever was when Sean Taylor leveled former Bills punter Brian Moorman when the AFC tried to run a fake in the 2006 Pro Bowl. 

Tress Way is representing the Redskins in the 2020 Pro Bowl and still has that play in the back of his mind. 

When asked whether he'd try to pull off a fake punt of his own on Sunday, Way said yes but under specific conditions. 

Minkah Fitzpatrick and Jamal Adams are the starting safeties for the AFC, so while both are great players and Adams is a hard-hitter in his own right, none of them are Taylor. 

So if you see the NFC pull off a fake punt and Tress Way quickly gets rid of the ball, you'll know why.
