Redskins GM Says No Controversy Between RG3 and Shanahan

Washington Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen says he doesn't see a controversy between quarterback Robert Griffin III and coach Mike Shanahan.

Allen said Friday that the views expressed by Griffin and Shanahan reflect "a very competitive player who's dying to play football" and "a very experienced coach who's doing the right thing."

Griffin has expressed a desire to practice more and to play in preseason games as he returns from knee surgery. Shanahan has taken a more cautious approach.

The Redskins have a vivid history of quarterback controversies. Allen's father, George Allen, had perhaps the most famous: Sonny Jurgensen vs. Billy Kilmer in the 1970s.

Allen says, "I know somehow Billy and Sonny are laughing that we created a quarterback controversy with Robert Griffin."
