Haslett feels Redskins can make another run
Robert Griffin III believes that the Redskins are “clicking” on offense now. He would just like to see it add up to a few more wins.
Since the bye, the Redskins dormant offense has come to life. In those five games, the Redskins have averaged 426 yards per game. Included in that average was a 499-yard output against the Bears and an even 500 in the win over the Chargers, the team’s highest offensive output in a game since December of 1999.
And the offense has had balance. In four of those games they had at least 190 yards rushing and 200 yards passing.
However, the Redskins are just 2-3 in those five games so Griffin’s satisfaction with the offense’s performance is tempered by that reality.
“I just feel like everything is clicking for us a little bit better,” he said. “We are putting up a lot of yards, we are putting up points but at the end of the day it comes down to winning football games so that's what we have to do.”
He expects the Eagles to play the Redskins differently than they did in the season opener, a game the Eagles won 33-27. The result was not nearly as close as the final score indicates. Philadelphia bolted to a 33-7 third-quarter lead and coasted from there.
Griffin was seeing his first live action since reconstructive surgery on his right knee last January. He did pass for 349 yards but he needed 49 pass attempts to get there and he suffered his first multi-interception game of his career.
He has been playing better as of late. In his last two games he has completed 47 of 69 passes for 572 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. That comes to a strong passer rating of 108.5.
“I think everybody sees it on the tape and it's not just me it's the whole offense,” he said when about comments out of Philadelphia saying that he is playing better. “We're much improved in every phase of the game right now. Hopefully they do see that and they come ready to play because we know we're going to get everybody's best shot.”
