Robert Griffin Believes Ravens Offense Will Surprise

Is Robert Griffin speaking facts about the Ravens Super Bowl 2020 chances? The Baltimore Ravens made the playoffs last season thanks in part to a late season change at the quarterback position, when head coach John Harbaugh made rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson the starter after Joe Flacco went down with an injury.

While Jackson impressed his coaches with his running ability, the offense wasn’t very successful throwing the ball, which h came back to haunt them in their playoff loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Despite Jackson’s struggles throwing the ball consistently last season, backup quarterback Robert Griffin III believes the team’s offense will be much improves this season, which he belie3ves will surprise a lot of people.

“I’ve got to make sure I understand the offense, forward and backward,” Griffin said, via the team’s official site. “The offense will look different. I think we’ll shock some people with what we’re going to do. If we need to run it 60 times, we can do it. But if we need to throw it 30 to 40 times, we can also do it. I think that’s what we’re working on, to make sure we have those capabilities.”

After running the ball on 65.6 percent of its plays from scrimmage after Jackson took over as the starter, the Ravens brought in Greg Roman as their new offensive coordinator. The team also added wide receivers Marquis Brown and Miles Boykin, and also signed former New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram to provide them with some depth at key positions.

“This game is about mismatches and that’s what we’re trying to create,” Griffin said. “You get a guy like Hollywood, it’s a speed mismatch. When you get a guy like Boykin, it’s a height and reach mismatch. Get them in situations where they can be successful.”

Robert Griffin, who signed with the Ravens in 2018 after sitting out the 2017 season, is happy with the opportunity he was given by the Ravens but also hopes it will eventually lead to becoming a starting quarterback in the league once again.

“I’m happy to be here, I’m excited to be here, I love this place, I love this organization. They’ve treated me well. I have bigger goals in mind, and those goals start with the Baltimore Ravens. So I have to make sure I do everything I can to be the best for the Baltimore Ravens.”
