  • Mike Shanahan Says He's Leaning Towards Benching Robert Griffin III

    By Mike Jones Dec. 9 (Washington Post) -- Embattled Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that he is considering benching quarterback Robert Griffin III for the remainder of the season to ensure that the second-year pro avoids injury and goes into the offseason program completely healthy.

Some fans threw snowballs toward the Redskins' bench, and one was removed by stadium security personnel for screaming at Shanahan late in the game. Most of the fans who did show up were long gone before the game ended, with the Redskins' record dropping to 3-10 one year after they won the NFC East title.
