Griffin sustained a serious knee injury in the 2012 playoffs. He then struggled in 2013 in an offense designed to transform him into a drop-back quarterback rather than one that took advantage of his mobility. He suffered another knee injury last year and did not perform well in the offense of new coach Jay Gruden.
"I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it," Shanahan told 106.7 The Fan. "In college he didn't have a route tree, didn't have a playbook. That does take some time. ... If you take a quarterback like that you must run the kind of system that allows him to be successful. ... I really believe Robert thought he was more of a drop-back quarterback. He hasn't done things the NFL asks you to do. It does take some growing pains. You better really work on it inside and out."
Some have wondered why the Redskins went so hard after Griffin if they weren't willing to create an offense that maximizes his skill set.

Jay Gruden has expressed nothing that would contradict that view, though he is hoping to see more explosiveness.
"I think he's doing a good job," Gruden said. "I talked to him today about trying to get a little bit more suddenness to him, and he's just saying, 'I'm getting my bearings straight. I'm getting my plays down.' You'll see it once camp continues to hit and he gets more comfortable with the terminology, but I've been impressed with him."

"[It] wasn't what I wanted it to be," he told the Washington Post.
Jones led the Gators in rushing yards and touchdowns, but it wasn't enough. He sought to do more, including catching passes out of the backfield. He hopes he will prove to be more versatile with Washington.
"I want to just jump into that and get that role because I didn't really catch the ball a lot at Florida," he said.
That might be his best opportunity to play with Alfred Morris seemingly entrenched as the team's featured back.
Coach Jay Gruden said on Saturday that he awoke to a voicemail from Halliday, and the two haven't yet talked. "He chose to jump on a plane and head to the house," Gruden said, per The Washington Post.
Halladay set a school record at Washington State, with 11,304 yards. He also threw 90 touchdown passes. He went undrafted after a broken leg ended his season in November.
