When somebody writes the book about Mike Shanahan's post-Elway career, it should either be called "How Did We Not Win That Game?" or "Do You Realize We Could Be 10-3 right now?" -Bill Simmons
I'm not surprised at all that Mike Shanahan risked RGIII's career in an attempt to win a Wild Card Round game.
Mike Shanahan does not care about his players, they are a means to an end, and that end is Mike Shanahan's further employment.
