One thing people should never doubt is Shanahan's work with young QB's

- He helped Elway develop as OC
- He helped turn Young's career around as OC (Young credits him with reviving his career)
- He turned a young Brian Griese into a pro bowler
- He turned around Plummer's career
- He drafted and developed Cutler

He was waiting for a chance to develop a QB in Washington. Thought he could pull a Plummer with Grossman and obviously that failed (Also tried to turn Beck into something despite how much Beck sucks)
