Mike Shanahan said the decision to bench RGIII was made after consulting team owner Daniel Snyder and general manager Bruce Allen.
It seems certain Mike Shanahan is out as head coach of the Redskins at the end of the season. Everyone knows it. But what if that theory has been misguided from the beginning, and the Shanahan can and should survive another year in Washington?
Just because it didn’t happen after yesterday’s 45-10 humiliation by visiting Kansas City or today as the walking Deadskins began their preparations for Sunday’s next defeat at Atlanta, we all know Mike Shanahan is a goner in Ashburn.
This was the worst effort in Mike Shanahan’s tenure with the Redskins, and if this was grade school the whole organization would receive a red “F.”
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan did not deny a report that he was ready to quit after the 2012 season.
Mike Shanahan had cleaned out his office and was ready to leave the Washington Redskins at the conclusion of the 2012 season according to an ESPN report.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder maintained he still has no plans to change the team’s name in a meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday, according to the Washington Post.
Comcast SportsNet’s Chick Hernandez, who along with Tarik El-Bashir first reported Roger Goodell would be meeting with Dan Snyder over the Redskins team name, reported live from outside that meeting on Tuesday, saying, “I gotta feel that this is gonna change at some point.”
