Shanahan: Struggles of Robert Griffin III unrelated to injury
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan does not believe injuries have prevented quarterback Robert Griffin III from maximizing his potential in the NFL. Rather, he feels it was the team not creating an offensive system that best fits his talents and his own belief that he could play a traditional role at that position.
Griffin sustained a serious knee injury in the 2012 playoffs. He then struggled in 2013 in an offense designed to transform him into a drop-back quarterback rather than one that took advantage of his mobility. He suffered another knee injury last year and did not perform well in the offense of new coach Jay Gruden.
"I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it," Shanahan told 106.7 The Fan. "In college he didn't have a route tree, didn't have a playbook. That does take some time. ... If you take a quarterback like that you must run the kind of system that allows him to be successful. ... I really believe Robert thought he was more of a drop-back quarterback. He hasn't done things the NFL asks you to do. It does take some growing pains. You better really work on it inside and out."
Some have wondered why the Redskins went so hard after Griffin if they weren't willing to create an offense that maximizes his skill set.
Redskins' Robert Griffin III only focused on this season, not contracts
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III knows he will have to prove to those in the front office he should be their quarterback of the future this season. Because of that, Griffin is only worried about the upcoming season, according to CSN Washington.
"I'm not worried about next year. I'm worried about this year."
Griffin has played 37 of a possible 48 games so far in his career, throwing for 8,097 yards with 40 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. Griffin noted he's feeling better heading into Year 2 in Jay Gruden's offense.
"Yeah, you definitely feel a difference," Griffin said. "The day you stop changing and adapting yourself and growing as a player is the day that you shouldn't be playing anymore. Every year you step on that field, you find those things you want to work on. You listen to your coaches and work on the things they want you to work on. You become a better and better player."
Redskins pick up QB Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/27/15) Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan announced Monday that the team will pick up quarterback Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option for the 2016 season, a move worth $16.155 million, per The Washington Post.
The Redskins have already announced that Griffin will be the starter this season, and locking him up would not affect the team's plans, if they have any, to draft a quarterback. NFL Media insider Albert Breer said the team views the option as a franchise tag of sorts.
The risk comes in that if Griffin is hurt during this season, the Redskins would be on the hook to pay the full $16 million. If Griffin does not perform well in 2015, the Redskins could release the quarterback without taking a salary-cap hit.
Griffin threw for 1,694 yards and four touchdowns with six interceptions last season.
Redskins' Jay Gruden: RG3 'still in the developmental stages'
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Redskins coach Jay Gruden is entering the offseason with hopes that Robert Griffin III will develop into the quarterback he needs for his system.
A year ago, Griffin struggled offensively when healthy, which helped contribute to a 4-12 overall record.
“Robert has a good understanding of our system and what we want and I think I have a good understanding of what he is as a quarterback,” Gruden said, via ESPN.com. “He’s a quarterback still in the developmental stages. I have a good understanding of what he needs and he has a good understanding of what we’re looking for, and hopefully, moving forward, he’ll be a more confident and decisive quarterback, and I’ll have a better understanding of what he’s comfortable with and give him opportunities to succeed.”
Redskins' Gruden wants confidence, improvement for RG3
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that he wants to see improvement from quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to the Washington Post. He also added that he would like to see Griffin's confidence level raised after being named the starter going into the 2015 season.
“I don’t know how much of his confidence has wavered up and down. You’ll have to ask him,” Gruden said during the NFC coaches breakfast at the NFL annual meetings in Phoenix. “But I think Robert has always been a very confident guy, a very confident quarterback, and I don’t think he’s ever lacked in that department. But if he has wavered a little bit because of the last couple years, then it’s good for him to come into this year, knowing that he’s the starter and that the guys are behind him, and the coaches and we’ll see what he can do. He’ll have every opportunity to succeed.”
The team recently said that they would consider the possibility of taking a quarterback with the fifth pick of the draft this year.
Griffin III, 25, has thrown for 8,097 yards with 40 touchdowns and 23 interceptions in three seasons. He has also rushed for 1,480 yards and eight touchdowns.
|You should know what to expect from Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III by now. He was great as a rookie in 2012, but he has been a colossal disappointment each of the past two seasons. Injuries have been part of the problem, but he has also struggled to repeat his rookie success when he was the No. 6 Fantasy quarterback in standard leagues. Coach Jay Gruden plans to keep Griffin as his starter, but Fantasy owners have little faith in him as a starting option. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 quarterback on Draft Day worth a late-round pick in the majority of leagues. If he is able to rebound -- his rushing totals will be crucial since he had 815 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012 and 665 yards and one touchdown the past two years -- then you could be looking at a steal based on what he showed in 2012. But that season seems like a long time ago based on his performance the past two years, and we're not optimistic he can ever regain that form.
