Hankerson: 'Everyone Has To Improve'

FENNO: RG3 returns to Redskins, but has a long way to go - Washington Times
Glimpses of the old quarterback returned in the second half, those moments when he makes escaping trouble in the backfield to fling the ball downfield look simple. In the fourth quarter alone, Griffin rolled up 169 of his career-best 329 passing yards to go along with two touchdowns. The erratic start faded.

Shanahan defends withholding Griffin from preseason
"I’m glad Robert is going to be with us," Shanahan said. "I’m hoping he’s going to be with us for a while. Our priority was getting him ready for the season and not put him in there too quick.

He looked like he was in pretty good shape. So hopefully we can keep on getting better as an offense and we’ll see if we do."
