Pierre Garçon: Offense Will Rally With Gruden

Posted Feb 12, 2014

The numbers don't lie in regards to the Washington Redskins offense. In the last two seasons, the team has had success, but needs Jay Gruden's touch to finish the job.

Most of the pieces are in place for the Washington Redskins' offense to be a perennial contender in the NFL.

Head coach Jay Gruden is here to provide the missing pieces and take the personnel to the next level.

Receiver Pierre Garçon applauded the Gruden hire when he was on ESPN 980’s ‘Inside the Locker Room’ with Brian Mitchell and Rick ‘Doc’ Walker.

“It’s definitely a great hire for the offense," he said. "That offense in Cincinnati was very similar to our offense, so that’s definitely a great thing for us."

With Gruden as the offensive coordinator from 2011-13, Cincinnati averaged 21.5, 24.4, and 26.9 points per game, respectively.

The passing game specifically saw improvements from year-to-year in total yardage, as well as yards per pass.

Combine a new system with a healthy Robert Griffin III, along with proven playmakers at running back and receiver, and Garçon believes the group is primed for success.

“On offense, with Robert [Griffin III], Alfred [Morris], our offensive line and the rest of the receivers, we won’t have to learn a whole new playbook," he said. "We just have to add on to what we already know and we’ll definitely continue to grow as a young team, as a young offense.”
