RG III Won’t Force Zone Read Option

Redskins_RG3_2013 [1]The Washington Redskins say they haven’t abandoned their offense, and is there is no play they won’t call for quarterback Robert Griffin III. The problem isn’t whether he will run or whether teams have figured out the zone read option. It’s simpler than that.

According to coach Mike Shanahan, the Redskins haven’t attempted more zone read option plays because they keep falling behind by too many points. Not because of any issues with Griffin — or his surgically repaired right knee.

Through two games, the Redskins have used the zone read option five times, according to ESPN Stats & Information, with running back Alfred Morris carrying it each time. Of Griffin’s nine runs in two games, he has scrambled six times, run after a botched handoff, taken a knee and been credited with a run and a fumble.
