Redskins email report: Bowen breaks down Shanahan’s game plan | WashingtonExaminer.com
The team is different and his playbook has evolved. But Mike Shanahan’s offense hasn’t changed that much over the past 10 to 15 years — at least not the stuff he believes in, from the stretch zone to the bootlegs. That’s why it was interesting when former Redskins safety Matt Bowen took a look at his notes before a game vs. Shanahan’s Broncos in 2005 for the National Football Post. Yes, Kyle Shanahan now calls the plays, but his father has a heavy say in what plays they decide to run — and with the game plan. And, yes, he’ll do different things with Robert Griffin III at quarterback. Keep in mind, though, that Jake Plummer was a mobile QB for Denver.
If Brian Orakpo goes from being good to great, the Redskins will benefit and he would be in line to get a big payday.

The Redskins Blog | Griffin III Eats Fresh, Talks Track
Griffin III — a 2007 Gatorade Texas boys track athlete of the year and All-American in track at Baylor — said he still thinks about pursuing his track dreams. "My dad was talking to me about it (Wednesday night) and he was saying that a lot of my peers, the guys that I beat growing up, are running at the trials," said Griffin, the former Baylor hurdler. "And … it does suck. I mean, that’s the only way to say it. It sucks. But I’m definitely fortunate to be in the situation that I am, being in the NFL, being a franchise quarterback for a team with the opportunity to go out and do an infinite amount of things."

The 53: The numbers game on offense - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
I had the positions break down like this—four running backs, three tight ends, six wide receivers, three quarterbacks, and nine offensive linemen for a total of 25 offensive players. Most of the time an NFL 53-man roster will have 25 of offense, 25 on defense and three specialists and those are the guidelines I used in putting this together.
