On the all-22 there have been more than a couple of plays where it looks like there was more yardage vertically than horizontally but his aiming point has always been to the sideline rather than looking to cut upfield.
Yeah. The athleticism is back, but Griffin is pretty clearly lost in a dead space right now between understanding how to protect himself and executing a play when it's there for him.

The assumption that the coaches, myself, and everyone else was a bit off on was that when the read-option could be used as an efficient, ball-moving playcall again, the whole offense would return to previous levels. But it's clear that the league wide defensive adjustment has been the same as it has been to any other type of run: we'll let you have it, but we're going to keep our safeties and linebackers back and force you to nickel and dime us down the field.

Teams have done a good job of making the Redskins a between-the-tackles offense this season. They've been pretty good between the tackles, but there are no big plays that can be generated by the current personnel if you keep everything inside the box.

I think those concepts are most lethal to the defense when they're worried about getting beaten by conventional stuff.
