Robert Griffin III the Redskins let it be known would only talk to the media once a week. So it was quite a surprise when he altered his press schedule and popped into the media room in Richmond on Tuesday to issue a statement on his comments just 24 hours earlier.

Griffin pointed out Monday that he didn't like -- or really understand -- the "predetermined" plan Mike Shanahan had for his rehab. That led to all kinds of speculation with Griffin clarifying Tuesday that "there is no conflict" between himself and Shanahan.

"I just needed to address something was said or something that's been going along in the media since I had my press conference [Monday]. I just want everybody to know if there's any questions about if there's a rift between me and Coach [Mike Shanahan] or if there's a conflict there is no conflict" Griffin said. "Coach is Coach. I'm the player. Coach has a plan and I'm abiding by that plan. I'm doing everything the coaches are asking me to do. I trust those guys. They want me to have a long career and that's what part of this plan is about.

"[Monday] I voiced my opinion about it because I was asked about it. That's been twisted and turned and tried to put against this team and that's not what we want. Like I said Coach is Coach. Kirk [Cousins] Rex [Grossman] and Pat [White] have done a great job all offseason with the team getting in and out of the huddle and making plays and it's an honor for me to be in the quarterback room with those guys.

"That being said I'm excited about tomorrow."

You won't believe this but Shanahan apparently didn't know Griffin was going to pop into the media room and issue a statement.

"I was just told that Robert just spoke to you" Shanahan said. "I had no idea that that was going to happen."

I'm kidding. Of course you'll believe that -- the two haven't been on the same page when it comes to communicating with the media. But Shanahan knows what he's doing when it comes to quarterbacks. He cited the way he and John Elway battled constantly when he was coaching the Denver Broncos as an example of how the quarterback-coach relationship works.
