The relationship between Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and star quarterback Robert Griffin III has been under the microscope in recent weeks, but it is garnering more and more attention as the season nears an end.
In Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Griffin was pulled from the game as the Chiefs were en route to a blowout, which led to speculation about whether Griffin or Kirk Cousins would start in the team’s Week 15 match up against the Atlanta Falcons.
When Shanahan was asked who his starter would be, he had no commitment.
“We’ll talk about that later,” Shanahan said at the post-game press conference, via ESPN.com. “That’s with anybody in any position. We’ll look at injuries, we’ll look at where we are and what direction we’re going.”
Perhaps Shanahan is not ready to make his decision because he is not even sure if he will have a job next week.
During today’s game, it looked like the team completely gave up on Shanahan. FedEx Field also drew an all-time low crowd, which could be a good thing because of the severity of the loss.
No matter who the team rolls with next week, the biggest question will be surrounding the future of Mike Shanahan with the team.
