Kirk Cousins dunked on by fans after asking what he should give away

February 13, 2019

An innocent and well-intentioned question from Kirk Cousins backfired in a big way.

The Minnesota Vikings and former Redskins quarterback wrote on Twitter he felt like doing a giveaway for Redskins fans. Heasked his followers “what do you want me to giveaway?” and included four options in a poll on Tuesday.

But, perhaps predictably, many replied with snarky answers that fell into the “other” category:

How about a playoff birth and not losing to the Bills and Bears 2nd string? I missed that option on your poll Maxwell (@Max_Butler_18) February 13, 2019

Cousins’ first season with the Vikings didn’t go as planned. After signing a three-year, $84 million deal last offseason, Cousins and the Vikings finished 8-7-1 and missed the playoffs.
