The Washington Redskins season is a mess, Mike Shanahan is on his way out, and he made one major move at the end to show that he knows what the problem is. Mike Shanahan not only benched starting quarterback Robert Griffin III, but he shut him down for the rest of the season. According to the Washington Post on Dec. 13, owner Daniel Snyder viewed the move as a coaching decision, despite his strong feelings towards the talent of Griffin. Here is how fans can catch the Washington Redskins vs. Atlanta Falcons live stream.

The move to shut down Griffin might have been a move to teach the quarterback some humbleness, but it also might hurt a lot of others around him. There are thoughts that Kirk Cousins will come into a no-win situation, which is something that veteran wide receiver Santana Moss sees as happening. Regardless of the outcome, this will be Shanahan’s last year as coach, and one has to wonder if this move will make Griffin work harder next year to prove his worth to the Redskins.
On the other side of the field, the Atlanta Falcons’ season has been over with for a long time. They have been without Roddy White for most of the season to injury and then lost their other starter Julio Jones. Their big free agent acquisition of Steven Jackson has been no improvement over Michael Turner from last season, and they are just heading into the end of the season with the 2014 NFL Draft on their minds.
