In the wake of a blowout loss to the Chiefs on Sunday and reports that Mike Shanahan was ready to quit the Redskins at the end of the 2012 season, the daily press conferences with the Redskins head coach have been outstanding television this week, especially on Tuesday after it was announced that Kirk Cousins would be starting Sunday’s game in Atlanta.
