Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times recently talked to ABC’s Jon Gruden about the rookie quarterbacks in the NFL. When the subject of Robert Griffin III came up, the former NFL head coach and current Monday night football analyst talked about the design of the offense combined with Griffin’s speed.
The offense they're running in Washington is one that no one had seen before this season. It's an offense that you have to see and really take some time to prepare for. It's hard to emulate the speed that Robert Griffin plays with. So that's the double-edged sword: You're dealing with an offense that you've never seen before, and a quarterback that can really run.
