Redskins coach Jay Gruden wants Robert Griffin III to be a diverse and balanced quarterback

The Washington Redskins have a new head coach in Jay Gruden, and he is explaining what he is looking for in quarterback Robert Griffin III. Gruden said he wants to see a diversed and balanced Griffin to attack any defense they face.

“It’s fun to have a guy like Robert because I think there’s really not much that I can throw at him that he can’t do. I think he can do it all,” Gruden said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

“I think I’ve seen him do everything. I’ve seen him be successful in quick game. I’ve seen him be successful from time to time in drop-back game. I’ve seen him roll out and make throws. I’ve seen the play action. I’ve seen the read option. Not many quarterbacks are very good on third and nine or 12. That’s very difficult time to be in, so we probably need to work on that one – but everyone does. When you see the success he’s had in different parts of the game, as far as being a normal drop-back quarterback – he’s done that. Option quarterback – he’s done that. But it’s now just a matter of packaging them all together and try to find out the best ways to attack whatever defense we’re playing.”
