The Redskins' first-team offense has produced a mixed bag of results in its first two games under new head coach Jay Gruden. The most notable statistic is 0, as in the number of touchdowns Robert Griffin III and the starters have produced in four drives. But in terms of getting in and out of the huddle quickly, being in sync with the snap count and showing command of the verbiage of Gruden's offense, they seem to be in decent shape.
