Snyder, coach Mike Shanahan and quarterback Robert "SuperBob" Griffin III are the trinity of turmoil at Redskins Park, all seemingly staking out their corner in this political battle royal. But don't overlook GM Bruce Allen's role.
Griffin, who has completed 60.1 percent of his passes for 3,203 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this season, said after Sunday's loss that he thought starting Sunday against the Falcons is "not an issue." Kirk Cousins, meanwhile, said he would prepare as though if it were an option, though he did not plan to dwell on it.
Faced with the ever-increasing reality that he may not be back as the Redskins' coach next season, Shanahan insisted Monday afternoon that he would indeed like to remain with the team. "You always want to come back," he said. "I love these guys."
Why doesn't Mike Shanahan just quit? Go back to the $7 million he is owed for the final year of his contract. If he walks, he doesn't get the money. Dan Snyder, no fool, is no doubt aware of what's happening. If he can wait for Shanahan to get so fed up that he quits, Snyder doesn't have to pay out that load of cash.
Cousins completed 7 of 16 passes for 59 yards, with his longest pass a 15-yard completion to wide receiver Joshua Morgan on his second attempt. He fumbled two plays later when he was sacked by Chiefs outside linebacker Frank Zombo, losing 15 yards as the Redskins recovered.
The Chiefs improved to 10-3 by dominating an opponent that offered little resistance. They scored on their first four possessions, sacked Robert Griffin III five times and Kirk Cousins once, and returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns.
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan decided to sit starting quarterback Robert Griffin III and put in backup Kirk Cousins during a blowout to KC.

Five questions Redskins beat writer Zac Boyer has heading into Washington's Sunday afternoon game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Though the Redskins surpassed 100 rushing yards Sunday for the 11th consecutive game, 88 of those yards were gained by quarterback Robert Griffin III. Morris managed only 11 carries for 26 yards, and he gained 15 yards on two carries in the second half.
Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan and Robert Griffin III continue to field questions about their commitment and trust in each other. It has been a theme that has dogged the Redskins since late last season when Griffin first injured his right knee.
Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL.
