Redskins | Opponents playing Robert Griffin differently
Tue, 19 Nov 2013 09:30:23 -0800
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said opposing teams are trying to stop the pass first against them this year, with more seven-man boxes to help with downfield coverage. QB Robert Griffin III complained after their Week 11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that it seemed as though they always knew what was coming in the passing game. "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.'"
