Terry Pluto expressed an idea on Sunday about the Browns and Heisman-trophy-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III that’s simple enough and makes plenty of sense, but doesn’t seem to have much traction in Cleveland based on what we we’re hearing on the radio and seeing on Twitter, and in the rest of the newspaper that Pluto works for, etc. Here’s what Pluto had to say:
Robert Griffin III is a playmaker, but exactly how does he fit into the passing offense? Everything he does is out of the shotgun, which is not the favorite formation of the Browns. He is most dangerous running around, rather than taking a quick drop back and zipping a short pass.
Maybe the Browns would be willing to turn their offense upside down for Griffin. If they do draft him, they must institute some major changes. If not, it’s a wasted pick.
If it’s true that the Browns would have to “turn their offense upside down for Griffin,” Mike Holmgren and Pat Shurmur would seem to be the last guys who’d use a top five...
