Do you think Shanahan let a teenaged Kyle drive a sports car to high school keggers? Because I now feel like he might have been cool with that plan.
So easy to say that now that the game is over. As I said, hindsight is so 20/20.
It is amazing how many "brillant" head coaches and GMs come out of the woodwork on this board after a game, win or lose.
To listen to them, you would think these types of decisions are easy.
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!!
I don't get the fairly weak excuse that if RG3 had been taken out earlier, people would be upset about it if Cousins sucked.
Why would we blame Mike for not wanting to risk RG3's career and trying to give us more of a chance with Cousins, even if he failed?
One of the worst coaching decisions EVER on so many levels.
Besides the first that he was risking the health of RG III and the future of the entire franchise.
But otherwise it makes even less sense ---
Shanahan drafted Cousins because he said he loved him as a QB and could play in the NFL. That move was vindicated when Cousins led the Skins to a comeback win over Baltimore and a win over Cleveland the following week.
How can Shanahan not even put Cousins in for a series or two? The offense was awful after the first quarter and wasn't moving the ball. RG III was barely able to move in the pocket, couldn't run and was missing open receivers. ONE score in the 3rd or 4th quarter quite possibly could have been enough to win the game.
At worst case Cousins struggles and Shanahan could put RG III back in even though injury wise that wasn't the right move. Leaving a hobbled RG III in and not even giving Cousins ONE CHANCE to get something going is inexplicable.
Shanahan deserves all the heat and then some that he will get in the coming days...

Jesus. You guys complaining about putting RG3's career at risk need to get a ****ing grip.
The man hurt himself on a typical football play. If you can't ****ing handle that then watch another ducking sport. We drafted RG3 because of his speed in part. Now you are ready to chastise the coach for exploiting this? Beyond dumb. Don't know a thing about football. This will be a problem for RG3's entire career. I hope your cajones hang a lot further than this because you're in for one hell of a ball bashing if you can't even handle this.
