We’ve seen this movie before. Back when Kirk Cousins was still a member of the Washington Redskins, he was about to get crushed, and instead of taking the hit he pitched to his running back, Rob Kelley.
On Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks, this exact same scenario played out once more. This time, it was Latavius Murray who had to endure abuse for his quarterback.

Cousins is nothing if not consistent. Twitter had some rather funny reactions.
Kirk Cousins needs multiple snickers.

A classic Russel Wilson play is to 360 a defender and make a crazy play down the field. A classic Kirk Cousins play is to get scared by the pass rush, faced the wrong way and throw the ball to his running back 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage
