Sean McVay appeared on “Redskins Nation” with Larry Michael on Thursday and assured viewers Washington’s offense wouldn’t ignore the elements that made it a top-10 unit during the past two years.
The 27-year old offensive coordinator said he and Jay Gruden would collaborate to meld facets of the foundation the Redskins built on offense since Robert Griffin III arrived in 2012 with components of Gruden’s scheme from Cincinnati.
“What makes Jay great as a coach is, he’s never going to be the type of guy that’s going to say, ‘Hey this is my offense, and you’re going to fit into it.’ He’s going to find what our players do best,” McVay told Michael.
“With the things we were able to do the last two years offensively, there will be a lot of that stuff.”
Part of that plan includes setting up the quarterback to succeed. McVay was impressed with RG3’s resiliency during a 3-13 season. He has no doubt Griffin III will return to form.
“We didn’t do the things we wanted to do as a team last year,” McVay said. “But I think for him having handled the adversity the way that he did, where he was unfazed and remained even-keeled through it… I think it speaks volumes to who he is as a character.
“And looking forward, I think everybody believes in him and has extremely high expectations for what he’s going to achieve.”
Michael interviewed McVay about the coordinator’s family ties to football, what he needs to do in the coming months and how he plans to work and improve as a coach.
