Former Michigan State and current Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is as straight-laced a kid as they come.  If you know anything him, you know that a mohawk wouldn’t suit him…at all.  But Wednesday, that’s exactly what he got after a little mix-up in the barber’s chair.  And while the ‘hawk is gone, he’s still apologizing to his family for how he looks. Per Cousins’ account: “The lady who cut my hair wasn’t speaking English all that clearly, there was a communication breakdown, and she basically gave me a Mohawk. I had my glasses on. She took them off to cut my hair. I couldn’t stop her, obviously because I couldn’t see. She wheels me back around, I look in the mirror — realize I have a Mohawk — and I tell her, ‘Just shave it off.’ I don’t know what to tell you. So she just buzzed it off and I gotta live with this for the next couple of weeks until it grows back, but I do want to apologize to my family and friends back home. I try to represent them well, but this haircut isn’t doing it.” The worst part for Cousins isn’t the out-of-the-ordinary haircut.  ”The tough thing was, until that moment, I didn’t realize I have a receding hairline,” he said.
