A report came out a couple of days ago that claims that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III hasn’t been coachable this season.

During Thursday’s press conference,  Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan was asked if RG3 is coachable.

“I think part of the growth of any football player is to be a pro player. And like I said about London [Fletcher], what’s the best thing for a young guy to go through? And that’s to be coached, learn how to practice as a pro, because it’s so totally different than it is in college. I coached in college for 10 years. It was a great learning experience for me, but the difference between college and pro level with these players is night and day, so all of it is a learning experience. Some guys are more in tune than other guys, but it’s not a negative. It’s just, ‘Hey, this is a learning experience guys go through.’ To be next to a guy like London Fletcher is the ultimate experience for a young football player,” said Shanahan via John Keim of ESPN.com.

So after Shanahan didn’t answer the question,  reporters continued to attempt to pry an answer out of him without any success.

“Yeah, that’s what I think learning is, is taking every situation and learning from it and knowing in the back of your mind that, ‘Hey, I might have made a mistake here or there, it may be on the field or off, but this is the way that I can become a better pro. I’ve learned [from] my experiences.’ Some will be positive, some will be negative, but the great ones learn from their mistakes.”
