McNabb takes shots at Redskins coach Shanahan

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -- Former Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb wonders whether Washington coach Mike Shanahan will be able to get the most out of Robert Griffin III if, as expected, the team drafts the Heisman Trophy winner.

During an appearance Thursday on ESPN2's "First Take," McNabb was asked whether Shanahan is a good fit for the Baylor quarterback known as RG3.

McNabb replied: "No. I say that because a lot of times ego gets too involved when it comes to being in Washington."

McNabb played for Shanahan in Washington in 2010, when the Redskins went 6-10, the QB was benched twice, and there were testy exchanges involving his agent and the team.

McNabb says he was "misused. Absolutely."

He also suggests Shanahan could get fired if things don't go well next season.
