This guy just loves to blame everyone but himself. He's really trying to cover his ass now....gotta get into that HOF.

You say Oh My God. Because my gut was — I saw Kirk [Cousins] — my gut was hey, he’s hurting doc. Don’t tell me he’s alright. You’ve got to tell me for sure. And so when you go through those things and people constantly ask you about it, I’m going, from a coaching standpoint

“And I told Robert after the season, I’m not gonna trust you next time,” Shanahan finished. “You tell me you can go, and then all of the sudden you can’t go. Now, next time, it’s shame on me. And that’s my mindset with those type of things. So I don’t really worry about what people say, but that’s my mindset.”

Diesel, those are direct quotes from Shanahan on the radio. Not some unidentified source.

So now he's trying to lay it off on the doc, and then Griffin.

You want to believe them. Your mind was made up months ago so nobody can change it.

DP44 nailed it.
No, he didn't nail it. He couldn't have been more incorrect. Those are quotes from Shanahan himself.

What is there to spin? Those are his exact words. He's desperately trying to come out of here clean.

Done in three weeks? I've never said that. I did say if Shanahan was here past year five, that I'd be done.

Fortunately, that's not happening.

What about the edited quote, about the Doc?

"You say Oh My God. Because my gut was — I saw Kirk [Cousins] — my gut was hey, he’s hurting doc. Don’t tell me he’s alright. You’ve got to tell me for sure."

You don't think he"s playing the victim there?

Fair enough. The game's on. That doesn't sound like someone who's taking responsibility to me. You may feel otherwise.
