Quarterback Kirk Cousins served capably as Robert Griffin III's backup for the Redskins last season. That, along with, you know, starring at Michigan State, should be reason enough for his hometown paper to know: a) his name, and b) what position he plays.
Nope on both counts.

For a kicker, Kurt sure was proficient at throwing the ball last season. (The Holland Sentinel has since corrected the mistake.)
Good news, though: Cousins isn't alone. Teammate Ryan Kerrigan has been there, too.
Could've been worse for Cousins. Somebody could've mistaken him for Rex Grossman.
