Expect a very potent Redskins offense in 2014

By Mark Solway | April 9th, 2014


Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins offense, had a very tough 2013 season. RGIII was coming off knee surgery, which really hindered his development. He didn’t have the off-season workouts that most quarterbacks and receivers have. He had to spend all of last off-season rehabbing his surgically repaired right knee.

So what can we expect from Robert Griffin III in 2014? Hopefully a healthy and rejuvenated RGIII that will be vying for the comeback player of the year next season. New Redskins head coach Jay Gruden, who worked with Andy Dalton in Cincinnati, can definitely help RGIII become a much better quarterback.

In The Air

The acquisition of former Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, will be huge for RGIII and his growth. Jackson is that home run threat that pressures a defense. Few corners can cover him one-on-one. He’s very explosive.

Pierre Garcon, who is coming off a franchise record setting 113 catches last season, will rarely see double coverage with Jackson’s arrival. Andre Roberts will give the team a boost as a slot receiver. He has good hands.

Santana Moss can still help the offense. He may not be the receiver that he was three years ago, but he brings leadership to the receiving corps and is dependable on 3rd downs.

Jordan Reed is a guy that reminds some of former NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez. He has very good speed for the tight end position, has great size, and is a better route runner than people give him credit for.

On The Ground

Alfred Morris will have even more room to run this season, which will also help RGIII be more efficient. He faced a lot of eight defenders in a stacked box last season, because of the lack of deep threats at wide receiver.

With the new weapons that have been added on this offense, there’s no reason why the Redskins offense shouldn’t be a top 5 next season.

  1. Makes sense that the Skins offense will be better than last year, many though have been and still are concerned with their defense.
