Just one season removed from making the playoffs, the Washington Redskins fired head coach Mike Shanahan this past Monday after the team completed a 3-13 campaign. Throughout the season, there was a lot of talk about a possible rift between Shanahan and star QB Robert Griffin III. This leads many to believe that RG3 may have a say in who the next head coach of the Redskins is, and you can add experienced backup QB Kirk Cousins to that list.

In what was some interesting wording when speaking about the coaching vacancy, Cousins–who has played some significant snaps over the past two seasons while Griffin dealt with injuries–threw his teammates name into the fold when discussing the subject of who the right hire should be.


Now we’re not going to ignore the fact that the face of the franchise will have some input as to who leads the team, but it is still interesting to hear it come directly from the mouth of a teammate–especially from a teammate whom some believe should actually be the one starting under center over that face of the franchise.
