Lots of NFL QB's have taken beatings their first few years. Troy Aikman being but one famous example.
The point is that people pay to see competitive football played at a high level. You rob those people when you don't play a player who 1. Can play and 2. Is better than the guy behind him.
And don't forget all those teams who in the playoff hunt who will be impacted by rg3 sitting, you are screwing them as well. This is the equivalent of picking up your ball and going home. Shanahan & Snyder = no class.
There's no way to look at this that is at all favorable for Shanny and friends.
