OPEN THREAD: How good can Redskins offense be?

In 2012, the Redskins offense gained yards at an accelerated clip. Robert Griffin III flashed bright, blending speed and accuracy, and Washington popularized the spread option look that would soon grow throughout the NFL.

In 2013, the results sagged. RG3 dealt with a less than 100 percent knee, the offensive line could not get the same push. Eventually coaching relationships deteriorated and the Skins offense committed far more turnovers.

For 2014, with new coach Jay Gruden in place to run the offense, how do the Skins get back to their 2012 production? Healthy quarterback play is the obvious answer, but a renewed commitment to Alfred Morris will make an impact as well. Morris' numbers in 2013 were still impressive, but for many stretches, it seemed he was a forgotten man in the Washington backfield.

Last season, the Redskins ranked 9th most in yards per game, but just 23rd in points scored. In 2012, Washington ranked 5th in yards and 4th in points scored. 

What's the key to more points on offense? RG3? How big of a difference will DeSean Jackson make? Will Jackson create more openings for Pierre Garçon? Will Jordan Reed emerge?

Let us know what you think in the comments.
