Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan flatly denied an NFL Network report that quarterback Robert Griffin III requested that his coaches not show his negative plays during film review.
Reached Sunday morning in his office at Redskins Park, Shanahan said “that’s completely false. Robert would never do that.”
The report was an element in a story in which an NFL network columnist speculated about turmoil within the Redskins organization and between Shanahan and Griffin.
Shanahan told The Post that it’s normally his policy to never reveal the nature of private conversations between himself and players. But he said he felt it necessary to address the matter and set the record straight.
Griffin last week caused a stir when he said that the Philadelphia Eagles defense seemed to know what was coming, and those comments were perceived by some as a shot taken at offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
When he learned of the perception, Griffin approached Kyle Shanahan unprompted and attempted to clarify his statement. Kyle Shanahan said that he understood Griffin’s perspective and that he took no offense to the comments.
