The Washington Redskins haven't gotten off to a very good start, going 0-2 and falling behind by big deficits to start their games.

That's not enough for Redskins coach Mike Shanahan to consider benching quarterback Robert Griffin III for backup Kirk Cousins. He was asked if he would make a change a quarterback.

"No, no," said Shanahan during his press conference, according to ESPN Radio. "We've got a lot of confidence in Robert."
So far, the second-year signal caller has completed 63 percent of his passes for 649 yards, with five touchdowns and three interceptions. He threw just five interceptions over all of last season.
