And apparently there are already rumors swirling that Shannahan could end up in Houston and he's auditioning Cousins for a trade to take the QB with him to Houston.
I'm paraphrasing but listening to him it made a lot of sense.
Actually the rumor here is Shanny thought RG3 was the 2nd best QB prospect in the 2012 draft, but he may not have been keen with the price required to trade up to draft him.
Dan Snyder has turned into the bogeyman here in D.C.
Anything that goes wrong with the Skins is somehow Snyder's fault.
Shanny chose Kirk Cousins because under no circumstances did he want Rex Grossman to see the field as the Skins primary backup.
Shanny keeps Rexy around because he knows the playbook and is cheap.
