Statement From Kyle Shanahan


At the end of Sunday's loss to the Bengals, Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. Here is his statement on the matter:

"When I overheard the official tell the head coach that the game was over after the false start penalty, I tried to explain that the game was not over.  That is what resulted in the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.  I tried to get an explanation of how I could that penalty when half the other team was on the field as well.

"I was frustrated, and in the process of trying to get some answers from the officials, I conducted myself in the wrong way.

"I ask our players to hold themselves to a high standard and be accountable and I know that I'm accountable for my actions as well.

"I know that I need to handle those situations better in the future.  My emotions got the best of me and I know my responsibility. This will never happen again."
