Mike Shanahan Reveals He Never Wanted To Draft RG3 And It’s Ok, Mike, We Get It

by 4 years ago

I always through RG3 was a DOA: Dud On Arrival (you can write that one down and use it, bros). The guy was good for one year but I saw the writing on the wall once his knee kept giving out on him.

The guy’s bones are made of glass and his skin is made of paper. Plus he sucks at football. And he’s a crybaby. You know who leaves thinly veiled letter on their lockers when cut from the team? Bitches.

Well, apparently I’m not the only one who always thought RG3 was a waste of fucking cash. Apparently his coach, Mike Shanahan, didn’t want him either.

Via Fox Sports:

“”[Redskins owner Dan Snyder] knew I wasn’t very happy about what we did, but he wanted everybody to celebrate how smart we were, so we jumped on his plane and met the other owners on his yacht,” Shanahan said. “Everyone was celebrating. I just didn’t think it was very smart to give up that much for a guy who we didn’t even know if he could drop back and throw.

“When I finally sat down with Dan, I said, ‘Hey, you own the team. We can work with him and do some things. But we haven’t seen anything on tape that warrants giving [up] this type of compensation.’ To me, it was absolutely crazy. But I told Dan that if that’s what he wanted to do, I’d make it work.””

Well, hot take Mikey, you didn’t make it work. You guys sucked. Thank God for Kirk Cousins aka KC1 (you can use that one too, bros), otherwise you guys would be the laughing stock of the NFC East. Which is the laughing stock of the NFL, so in turn, it would have made you the laughing stock of the NFL. RG3 is currently shopping around his “skills” to other teams but no one seems to care. Until he gets picked up, though, we have things like this to look forward to.

Here’s my #FoodForThought, Robert: Go the fuck away.
