Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden has stressed the need for patience in the development of starting quarterback Robert Griffin III as a pocket passer. However, it seems that the lessons are starting sync in for RGIII as he showed a calm presence and went through his progressions on his pass attempts against Patriots. While there’s nothing definitive, it shows Griffin is improving in the pocket.
Pass Attempt 1
In his first pass attempt he does look down field at first but when begins to feel the pressure from his left side he spots fullback Darrel Young breaking open in the flat. Griffin tries to hit Young out there but tight end Logan Paulsen stepped in front and caught the pass himself gaining a few yards.
But had Young caught the ball it would have been a long gain as there was no one near him. However, Griffin made a good decision here.
