Huh? That seems like absurd revisionist history. He had his son build an offense around RG3 that took the league by storm for a season. He basically built the whole team around him. If he was wanted to play Cousins so badly, why did he leave RG3 in the Seahawks game? It's clear he was desperate to win and saw that as his only chance.
Oh and Shanahan made the RG3 trade in the first place....
The reports going into the next year were that Shanahan and Snyder were engaged in a power struggle over who was closer with RG3 (which is ridiculously toxic). Shanahan lost, and it's only after he got fired that these type of stories began to come out.
It's conveniently made people forget about the share of blame he deserves for what happened with RG3.
