As he continues to compose his team’s new playbook and decide how he will utilize quarterback Robert Griffin III, Redskins Coach Jay Gruden is striving for balance.
During his extensive review of video of Griffin’s games the past two years, Gruden has come to the conclusion that the young dual-threat quarterback has the capability to execute almost any type of scheme.
“It’s fun to have a guy like Robert because I think there’s really not much that I can throw at him that he can’t do. I think he can do it all,” Gruden said.
Gruden says Griffin will have a degree of involvement in the planning of the offense this offseason. He wants his quarterback to have the greatest comfort level possible, because comfort leads to confidence, which leads to better execution. That doesn’t mean the coaches will not challenge Griffin to expand his game and sharpen his skills, however. And that doesn’t mean Griffin will have a full say on the offense.
