We’re counting down to the start of training camp here by looking at some numbers that will be keys to the Redskins’ 2014 season.
30—The target number of touchdown passes for Robert Griffin III
This may seem to be a shade ambitious since a total of 36 in his two years in the NFL. But Andy Dalton, Jay Gruden’s quarterback in Cincinnati, averaged 30 TD passes per season the last two years (27 in 2012, 33 last year). Few would question the fact that Griffin has more natural ability than Dalton and with his receiver corps upgraded with the additions of DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts he should have the tools to get it done.
Last year 30 touchdown passes would have been good for sixth in the league, just behind Tony Romo (31) and ahead of Philip Rivers (29).
