It very well could be Shannahan silliness, but it has to come from somewhere. A coach wouldn't just say something like that about a guy who has never performed. Underperformed lately, maybe, but I don't see the value of a coach basically berating a young receiver who's never done anything to the media. I think Mike's looking for a replacement. Besides, Lelie sucks.
