but no, hell no. Shanny ego destroys Shanny coach, again.
I dunno if it is as much about Shanny pushing RG3 hard, as much as RG3 wanting to be the starter even if he wasn't 100%. Shanahan could have taken a hard line with him, but probably alienates his top player further.
Washington also has the worst passing defense in the NFL, so not sure they'd win the division, even as weak as it is.
