Redskins’ interceptions are way down with RG3 at the helm
Question of the Day
The offensive scheme helps, too, according to Reed, whose 61 career interceptions are 10th-most in the NFL all-time. Reed has been watching film of Griffin in preparation for the Redskins‘ game against the Ravens on Sunday at FedEx Field.
Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan’s scheme is designed to put defenders in conflict, making them choose between covering two receivers. Simply described, the quarterback is supposed to read who that defender covers and then throw to the other receiver.
“It’s all predicated to what the defense is giving them,” Reed said. “He’s making great decisions. He still has a lot to learn, obviously. The offensive scheme that they’re running helps him out a lot.”
That’s a delicate line that he is learning to balance this season, and he believes he has found it.
“I try to make sure I’m conservative when I have to [be],” Griffin said. “But for the most part, I stay really aggressive and try to play fearless all the time without being dumb at the same time. So I know when I can try to make a play.”
