“I feel real comfortable,” Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said last week. “I’ve had a chance to have my hands and my eyes in the playbook, on the playbook. I’ve been watching film and everything for a long time now. So I feel very comfortable with it. Like I said, it’s very multiple. We have a lot of weapons out there. It’s just about us getting to the right plays and getting the guys the ball and let them go make plays.”
Griffin and others say they’re pleased with the progress so far but they realize there’s much still to be done.
“We’re continuing to throw a lot of things in there,” Griffin said last week. “Like Coach likes to say, we’re gonna huddle up and try to play smash-mouth football, and then we’re gonna no-huddle and still play smash-mouth football. So we’re doing a lot. We did a little no-huddle today, working that stuff in.
It's interesting that Griffin used the term "smash-mouth" when describing the offense as Gruden was criticized for abandoning the run too often in 2013 while he was the OC in Cincinnati.
