Matthew Stafford: New offense will be just as aggressive
“We were a pretty aggressive offense last year,” Stafford said. “And I am sure with some of the guys we have on the outside to make plays and in the backfield, whether it’s throwing the ball 50 yards in the air or throwing it 5 yards and letting guys run with it, we’re always about trying to make big plays.

Robert Griffin III embracing Jay Gruden's approach
"I just know that Jay sees things from a quarterback’s perspective, having been a quarterback, and being a younger coach," Griffin told the Washington Post. "He knows quarterbacks need weapons, so we’ve added weapons. He knows quarterbacks need protection, so we’ve added protection. Really, in this league and this game, it’s about making the quarterback comfortable, and that’s what he’s in the process of doing, and at the end of the day, it’s on me to make everything work, and that’s what I’m going to do.
"Coach is giving me all the proper tools, and he’s putting the tools in the shed," Griffin added. "I’m ready to go to work. I’ve got my hard hat on, and I think everybody else [does] too."
Griffin told the paper his top offseason priorities are to re-establish sound fundamentals and regain confidence after a year he described as “a whole journey of second-guessing and wondering."
