Shanahan filed police report in Pittsburgh for stolen items that were found not stolen

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan thought he was leaving Pittsburgh with far less than just the 27-12 loss the Redskins’ suffered at the hands of the Steelers in Week 8.

According to Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Shanahan filed a police report with local authorities after complaining that $3,700 and his passport had been taken from a briefcase left in the Redskins’ locker room. Per the report, Redskins’ security director Ed Burke met with officials as well over the claim.

The police report was later withdrawn after the missing items turned up having been packed in a different bag. Unfortunately for Shanahan and the Redskins, a win over the Steelers has still not been found.

    and unfortunately, your joke never came close to being funny. Most people will file a police report because they have to for insurance purposes. obviously, had he found the item, he wouldn’t have had to file a police report. glad he found the items later, but that doesn’t mean it was dumb for him to file the report when he thought they were gone.

    This is supposed to be Robert Griffin III’s Coach of the future? His ass should be fired just from making this phone call!!! He’s getting dumber as a coach and even dumber as a private citizen!!!

    Faux pas!

    Hey, I don’t blame Shanahan one bit.

    I know he makes a ton more than me but if I thought someone might have stolen $300 I’d file a report as well. If it were misplaced then found, so be it – slightly embarrassing but I’m not going to just write off that type of money to avoid embarrassment,

    Was he planning to leave the country after the game?

    I can understand coming to the immediate conclusion that the items were stolen if the game had been played in Philly, but not Pittsburgh.

    He rushed too fast to judgement in my opinion.

    “The police report was later withdrawn after the missing items turned up having been packed in a different bag.”

    Is he being tested for concussion like symptoms?

    Brain farts can occur on and off the field. No big deal, we’ve all been there.

    Whoa, slow down, killer. He never said he was dumb, and his joke wasn’t THAT bad.
