On Twitter yesterday, I noted that I thought the Redskins’ offensive line has been by far the best in the NFC East so far this season. It’s partly because they’re playing well, but it’s also due in part because the Shanahans are putting them in position to succeed. The Redskins’ read option offense has been wildly effective in the run game, and because the run game has been so successful, defenses haven’t been able to pin their ears back and attack the QB in the passing game. It’s a ripple effect.
My buddy Mark Bullock of Hogs Haven broke down the Skins running game, and showed how it has progressed since Week 1. Throwing together a few film observations of one game is easy. It’s a higher degree of difficulty showing the progression of concepts over several games. Mark does a great job of that here. Great read.
