Mike Shanahan Tackled The First Day of OTAs, Literally.
The Redskins held their first day of OTA sessions yesterday at the practice bubble. During this time, Defensive Back Brayndyn Thompson decided to see if the old man could still take a hit. So, he hit him.
Shanahan was laid out, as is wont to happen when old men get crushed by athletes in their prime, and he stayed down for a while as the medics checked him out.
One can only presume that Thompson may have to be concerned about his future from this point on, I mean, you don't just tackle your Head Coach the first day of practice. You work your way up to it. Hit an assistant or something first. Earn your way to the boss level.
Anyhow, Shanahan didn't speak with reporters because he wasn't in condition to talk at the podium. So that means he was out finding a Voodoo priestess to place a curse on Brandyn Thompson for what he did.
I don't know about you, but I think he should get an immediate roster spot. Anyone stupid/crazy enough to slam their 59 year-old head coach to the ground the FIRST DAY is someone you don't want to mess with during a game. I mean, if he's willing to deliver the spear to an old man, there's no telling what he'll do to opposing receivers in a game.
Just keep the "fine fund" stocked, and he'll be an allstar.
