Former Redskins CB Darrell Green takes shot at Mike and Kyle Shanahan

There is a lot of turmoil in the Washington Redskins organization following a disappointing season. There is seemingly a rift between head coach Mike Shanahan and owner Daniel Snyder as well as quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Former Redskins cornerback and Hall of Famer Darrell Green told SiriusXM NFL Radio’s Dan Koppen and Zig Fracassi that Shanahan was the problem.

These guys are coming in here with their kids, hiring them, everybody’s making millions and having fun, but nobody’s really winning,” Green said, via theWashington Post. “And so, it is frustrating for us. We’ve been losing 20 years here, and we were a team used to winning. And it’s not the owner, because the owner’s not playing and the owner’s not coaching. It’s very frustrating. And I put the onus right where it belongs. [Shanahan] said last week, ‘I take the blame, I didn’t have them ready to play.’ Well you know what, you’re supposed to have them ready to play, and that goes for anybody.”

Green also predicted a change.

“I’m very optimistic about the potential for this team to be changed,” he said. “People can only go down so far, particularly when you have a guy who was a self-made millionaire, billionaire in Dan Snyder. This guy is not about losing. He’s about winning, and it’s a matter of time. He’s going to get the formula in place with the right people, and this thing is going to come around.”

    Praying for NFL… In a league with over 80% player diversity this reveals another troubling dirty secret in the NFL. Compared to what RG3 received K.Cousins didn’t even get his Jersey soiled. Coach &son sent a clear message to potential buyers. After setting up the shutdown with vicious media leaks from Incognito style locker room, coach called O line protections and plays that resulted in record sacks for RG3. Just as McNabb warned with media speak about QB being unable to Read because of his College! Coach doubled players practice after shutdown. Coach &son sent a clear message to potential owners for this coaching service in the league. This was not a players audition but a Coach & Son audition. All Cousins had to do was drop back with time to read a book read the open man & throw. It was shameful. The O line even blocked behind him at times, no chance of him being kicked in the groin. With more Afri.Amer. QB’s coming out of college, perhaps another Heisman,into a system with less than 3% QB diversity, times are desperate to maintain shameful status quo.
