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.
