WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – While holding a press conference Wednesday to address the state of the Redskins and field questions on the upcoming draft, Mike Shanahan may have dropped a “Dumb & Dumber” movie reference, and botched it.

As everyone knows by now, Washington does not have a first round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft. When asked if it’s possible the team trades into tonight’s primetime showcase, Shanny delivered a response that warrants a second listen.
Reporter: Is there any realistic scenario whatsoever that would have you trading into the first round?

But he did. And they both came in the same breath.
