Morgan: Much Easier to Operate An Offense With No Changes
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Redskins receiver Josh Morgan admitted the offense has been a lot easier to pick up this offseason because nothing about it has changed, as he told Lavar and Dukes on Wednesday.
“No changes at all,” Morgan said on 106.7 The Fan.
“When we broke down practice [Shanahan] was just saying how much more polished we looked, and how he could really notice the difference of everybody working on their craft this year, instead of trying to get everything right, and trying to understand the plays and trying to understand the system.”
Robert Griffin III surprised everyone last week, by participating so actively in the team’s first OTA, but it would be equally as shocking to think Mike Shanahan’s done nothing to tweak the offense since his franchise quarterback’s devastating knee injury.
Although, Morgan’s point of emphasis may have been how much cleaner the offense operates in year two, with a fully replenished roster, and not so much any apparent leniency towards the rushing attack.
“Everybody’s back healthy this year,” Morgan said.
“You know, a healthy RGIII, Orakpo’s back healthy, I mean all the guys that were injured, even the guys like myself that were playing through injuries,” Morgan said. “You know, Pierre Garçon, he’s getting better every day. All of us healthy, it’s going to be a great season, especially based off last year with what we did with so many injuries and so many setbacks.”
There’s no way to speak about RGIII right now without mentioning the infamous wedding gift fiasco, in which fans fulfilled every item on his wedding registry in a wild display of admiration for the quarterback.
“If people want to send him gifts and things like that, I mean, more power to him,” Morgan said. “I feel like that’s some of the fans’ way of feeling like they’re closer to him, you know, because I know he sits there and he reads the cards and reads the letters. That’s they’re way of getting to him.”
