I think Dan Snyder will permanently bench Mike Shanahan in about 3 weeks.

Washington gave up more picks for their back-up QB than we did!

I'd bench RG3, too... even though it requires me to pick up another fantasy football QB. He's been off & on awful this year; sailing/diving passes, unnecessarily rushed reads, even inconsistent drops. His fundamentals are freelanced.

As far as Snyder, I'd throw gobs of money at Kubiak to come fix RG3. I don't think Gary would be dumb enough to go to work for Snyder, but...

So Shanny trying to get fired. Must have seen how well it worked for Kubiak.

Shanahan is intentionally trying to get fired but he wants that $7 million next year. I think he's acting like a baby. However, this is all Dan Snyder's fault. The second he empowered his QB over the head coach this team was doomed.

Shanahan destroyed RG3's career with rushing him back last year with a BARELY RECONSTRUCTED KNEE. The kid should have been allowed to recover, but that damned ShanaKubiak...

I believe this too. IMO Snyder is beyond furious over this, and Shanahan is coming across as a guy that knows he is being constructively dismissed, and making sure he gets his severance.

In the process, they may have destroyed a very promising career.

Couldn't be more different. Griffin never did to his coaches what VY did to his. And Shanahan trusted and liked his QB a ton more than fish like VY.

That organization's a mess. I kinda feel for the rest of the players. Sitting your best player for "safety" reasons, yet the rest of the team has to play on like all is hunky dory.

I know McNair ain't perfect, but I'm dang sure happy to have him running this organization over a lot of the other asshats for owners

So, if Cousins plays great, they are probably gonna trade one QB - would you be willing to trade for one? (our first pick for RG3 - or two 2nds for Cousins)?

No way I'd trade either one of those QBs if I'm Washington. Not yet. Need to see if RG3 can recover through offseason and getting OTAs/minicamp/training camp.

Plus looking like you'll have a new coach coming in -- let him decide.

Dan Snyder loves RG3. Snyder wants RG3 to start, but Shanahan still insists on starting Cousins, which would probably cost Shanahan his job. Don't see something similar? Stubborn to a fault, just like Kubiak.

Shanahan got fired from Denver because the Owner told him to fire & replace his DC and Shanahan refused.

Stubborn? A bit.

I saw the PC at lunch and must say I'm pretty impressed with Cousins. I'm not sure he'll ever be an NFL starter, but he answered every question the heads shot at him like a champ.

Shanahan is trying his best to get fired he finally realized what a circus the organization is, but he is the cause of some of that too.

To all those wanting him to be our next coach I hope this shows you he is just an older version of Kubiak.
