Apparently the “Hennything Is Possible” motto applies to the NFL as well. Clinton Portis and Santana Moss used to take shots the cognac before games.
In a recent interview with NBC Washington, the two former Redskins reminisced about their times in DC on the 10 year anniversary Sean Taylor’s death. Portis and Moss detailed how they would take shots Hennessy with Taylor as a pre-grame ritual.
According to Portis the Henny toasting apparently came to an abrupt stop when Jim Zorn became the new coach in 2008. “All a sudden Coach Zorn comes in, and says] ‘Oh, yeah, guys are taking sips for Sean.’ What?”
Moss validated the timeline as well. “It was something that we just did. We didn’t want it to be magnified. We didn’t want it to be about us, because we did and went out and played the game football the way we know how to play. He just kind lost a lot us, you know. He said that and that kind lost us together” he explained.
Zorn would go on to have a shaky run as the Redskins coach with only 12 wins in his two year tenure.
