RGIII, Shanahan are at loggerheads
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The opposing wills of a headstrong coach and an equally headstrong franchise player faced off again Monday, with Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan rebuffing Robert Griffin III’s latest lobbying effort to play in the preseason.
Shanahan also said he has no private deal with Griffin about playing in Week 1 of the regular season, as implied by the quarterback. As far as Griffin’s statements about neither liking nor fully understanding Shanahan’s practice plan for the QB, the coach reiterated that it’s not his job to do everything to Griffin’s liking.
