Jon Gruden on RGIII
"I see an athletic quarterback that’s doing similar things that he did last year," Gruden said this week on ESPN Radio. "He may not have the true explosiveness that he showed as a rookie, but he’s still capable of ripping a game open with his legs. But he is out of rhythm, he is missing open targets, I do think the defenses have perhaps caught up with a few things. But they’re averaging almost 400 yards a game. What I see is a lot of frustration. In consecutive weeks, they’ve had opportunities to win the game in the fourth quarter, at Minnesota, at Philadelphia, and they haven’t gotten it done. And when you don’t win at crunch time, it falls on the quarterback’s plate. And I think there’s a lot of frustration right now, obviously, in Washington."

It probably wouldn’t have happened. It’s one of those situations where we ran it 10 times during the game and we just had a missed assignment that got him open."
