Donovan McNabb’s feud with Mike Shanahan continues.
McNabb, who played for Shanahan in Washington and parted with Shanahan on bad terms, said on FOX Sports Live that he thinks Shanahan is setting Robert Griffin III up to get the blame for this disappointing season.
“There’s a scapegoat in every situation, and who’s the scapegoat? Robert Griffin,” McNabb said, via CSNWashington.com.
McNabb said that was the way Shanahan treated him, too.
“This is something that I’ve seen, obviously, when I was in Washington and I’ve been seeing it since I left, at what point as a head coach will you say, ‘I need to get the guys prepared. It’s my fault. We didn’t play well, I’ll make sure that we’re ready tomorrow,’” McNabb said. “This is something that’s been a problem, even since when I was there, when things go wrong.”
After winning the division last year, Washington is now 3-8 and in last place. Both Shanahan and Griffin deserve some of the criticism for the disappointment that is the 2013 season in Washington. There’s plenty of blame to go around.
