Santana Moss thinks he knows what can cure the Redskins’ sputtering passing attack.
He believes that the root of the problem is the injury to the right knee of Robert Griffin III. It’s not so much the injury itself but what it cost him in terms of offseason preparation.
“I told y'all Week 1 when you were like, Robert's coming back, what do you expect? I expected Robert to be him but I didn't expect us to go out and kill people in the air because we hadn't had that time together for him to get the grip on everything that was going to be going on around him, to get that comfortable feeling of him throwing the ball a lot,” he said.
Griffin spent time during OTAs and minicamp throwing off to the side with other rehabbing players. He got very limited full-team reps in training camp and did not take a snap in the preseason.
Seven games into the season, are the Redskins any closer? “You never know. Honestly, all we can do is continue to just practice,” he said. “Week in and week out you'll see us improve and we'll make more plays.”
“I can't sit here and tell you what's going to happen or what's going on, I really don't know. All I can say is that as long as we go out there and put the work in we should improve and we should be better. That's the only thing I can give you. If that's not accurate, I don't know.”
While Moss doesn’t have a timetable, he does believe that the passing game will click eventually. “Robert's just getting the feel of things, I can see him improving every week,” he said. “He's running better, he's throwing better. We're going to get on. When we get on, man, we can just sit back and talk about it.”
