Redskins | Mike Shanahan disagrees with Robert Griffin III

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 07:08:38 -0800

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan disagreed with QB Robert Griffin III's comments that indicated the Philadelphia Eagles knew the Redskins' plays in Week 11. "Our first year everyone played us with eight-man fronts, sometimes almost nine-man fronts," Shanahan said. "When you do that you have guys wide open like we did last year. That's one reason the play-action was so good. This year (teams are saying), 'We're playing you more passing and you have to earn the right in that run game.' Which we've been able to do. You're not always going to get that deep ball so you have to dump it off and be patient. That's part of the NFL. No matter what quarterback you're going against, no matter what system you go against, you have to relate or adjust your game plan accordingly. That's one of the reasons we ran the ball so much against a team that was very good at stopping the run."

Continue to check in though just to make sure there are no setbacks.

Redskins | Kyle Shanahan defends zone-read plays

Wed, 12 Jun 2013 16:29:47 -0700

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said the club doesn't have to eliminate the option running elements in order to protect QB Robert Griffin III (knee). Echoing his father, head coach Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan contended that the read-option plays safeguard Griffin by taking steam out of opposing pass-rushers. Griffin was hurt on improvisational runs and merely needs to work on picking his spots to slide or throw the ball away when facing QB pressure. The younger Shanahan said that they might have to adapt more as defenses plan better for the system.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is a borderline QB1 on draft day with well-known upside. If you take him, just make sure to draft a capable backup in case he can't start the season on time.

So it's good to have him back and a chance to compete."
