“He’s got to be himself. Robert is Robert,” said Shanahan, 61. “We don’t ask quarterbacks to do anything in particular. We have a game plan going in. Whatever that game plan may be, we are hoping they execute it.”
Griffin’s displayed horrific footwork, looked slow as a runner and been tentative in the pocket following January’s reconstructive surgery to repair the ACL and LCL ligaments in his right knee.
Reportedly again able to finish the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds, Griffin’s also rushed 27 times for 149 yards.
RG3 hasn’t resembled the 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year since quickly returning from a severe wound to compete in a collision sport.
Employing hideous mechanics as a quasi gimp, Griffin is directing the league’s 20th ranked attack and only completing 59.8% of his 209 attempts.
However, “Robert is Robert” scrambled for 77 yards in Sunday night’s loss to Dallas and Washington seems poised to soon breakout offensively.
Anything but a “cornball brother,” Griffin will eventually mend and guide the Redskins to their first championship since the 1991 campaign.
In the interim, expect Robert Griffin III and Washington to have a livelier attack on Sunday versus the Bears at FedExField.by
