Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan began what he thought was a normal press conference on Wednesday when he was caught off guard by a familiar, yet unfamiliar, voice. The voice was familiar in that it is one the coach hears every day. It was unfamiliar in that it was the first time Shanahan had fielded a question from that voice while standing at the podium.
As you can see, Robert Griffin III snuck into Shanahan’s scheduled press conference and asked him what he did to ring in the New Year. Shanahan came up with a pretty clever response.
“I tried to put a good game plan together, but I wasn’t sure how healthy you were, so it was hard without you calling me,” the coach said.
Shanahan then admitted that the rookie “got me good.” It’s nice to see the Redskins keeping things loose heading into their match-up with the Seattle Seahawks. It’s also possible that RG3 is simply trying to prepare for a game against Pete Carroll, who just so happens to be an expert in the pranking arts.
