Because Elway won all of those Super Bowls without Shanahan.......
Jake Plummer was awesome without Shanahan too.........
Jay Cutler had his best seasons under.......
And the Shanahan's called a brilliant game against the Browns with Cousins as the starter. Beyond that, Washington's entire offense this year has been terrifically designed.
People don't appreciate how important coaches are. Remember before the season, when people were saying the Saints were going to be fine because Brees was going to coach the offense? What happened to that? Sean Payton was suspended for a year and got a fat raise out of it.
Coaching is important. It's just that some are very overrated. Shanahan is in that category. You can say his schemes all you like. All I know is he was on the verge of being shown the door, along with Jr , if not for RGIII.

I said he was a fraud and coattail rider.

What choice did he have?? One foot was out -the-door so he is in position to draft a top QB prospect and does so? If it failed he was going to be fired anyway.
Shanny is way overrated. He got RGIII this year because he was FORCED to take him. Showed so much faith in the pick he selected Cousins in the 3rd round, when most teams are looking for another possible starter
