Shanahan Sends RG3 ‘Cool Hand Luke’

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan unknowingly dated himself after Thursday’s 38-31 win over the Cowboys after comparing quarterback Robert Griffin III’s performances in key games to “Cool Hand Luke.”

“Cool Hand Luke,” of course, is a 1967 flick starring Paul Newman in which the main character, Luke, is a cool customer Southern prisoner who is repeatedly able to escape from the custody of authorities and won’t take “No” for an answer.

The movie was released about 23 years before Griffin III was born, so when he was asked about the comparison in the postgame press conference, Griffin III wasn’t too sure how to respond.

The Galloping Gobbler — or the Thanksgiving Day game MVP award handed out each year by Fox, CBS, NBC and the NFL Network — on Thursday was rightfully awarded to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Griffin III torched the Cowboys’ defense to the tune of 311 yards passing and four touchdowns in the Redskins’ 38-31 win, and in doing so, became the first Redskins player to ever take home the Galloping Gobbler.

Why was it so important for Griffin III to take this title? In the three Thanksgiving Day games played by the Redskins since the Galloping Gobbler era began in 1989, the award has gone to members of the Dallas Cowboys — and all three times, it went to a player very familiar to Washington fans.
