5 Questions You Wish You Could Ask Washington Redskins HC Jay Gruden
5 Questions You Wish You Could Ask Jay Gruden
The Washington Redskins are a team filled with questions. That’s what happens when you’re supposed franchise quarterback loses the magic touch he seemed to have, and your head coach that was supposed to be one of the best in the NFL, completely loses the respect and trust of his team. Not to mention, when you throw in the fact that the team has one of the worst owners in the entire league, that also raises some questions about the team’s future success.
With that said, it’s not all bad in Washington. Jay Gruden, the new head coach, is seemingly one of the better young offensive minds in the league, and with Mike Shanahan out of the picture, it’s not impossible to think that perhaps the Redskins can again recapture the magic that made them one of the most exciting teams in the league during the 2012-13 season. And when you also consider that Robert Griffin III is going to be over a full season removed from the ACL injury that limited his effectiveness, and the fact that Alfred Morris is one of the best running backs in the league, and all of a sudden, the Redskins do have at least some promise on the current roster.
The 2014-15 season is going to be all about how the Redskins will answer all the questions circulating around them. Gruden has a tough job ahead of him as head coach, but he seems to be prepared to handle the speculation and questions. With that said, ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, five questions you wish you could ask Washington Redskins’ head coach Jay Gruden.
5. What Is the Quarterbacking Situation?
From what we saw in the 2013-14 season, Robert Griffin III wasn't himself. I'm not saying that Griffin won't regain his all star form, but you do have to wonder about the quarterbacking situation, especially with the team deciding to retain Kirk Cousins.
4. What Changes Can We Expect To See From the Offense?
During the 2013-14 NFL season, Mike Shanahan oftentimes seemed confused on how to run the offense. With Gruden now in place, it's only fair to wonder what kind of schematic changes we will see.
3. How Much Can We Expect the Secondary To Improve?
The Redskins' secondary was one of the team's weakest links last year, and with a lot of turnover expected in that area, how much, if any, improvement should we expect to see?
2. What Are the Team's Top Draft Needs?
Who is the team looking at? There is no shortage of holes to fill on the roster, and it would be nice to know just where the team wants to improve first.
