Mike Shanahan may have put his stamp on the zone, one-cut run scheme that he championed during his time in Denver.  But for the Washington Redskins in 2012, it's all about scoring points through the air. 

Robert Griffin III's throwing prowess has been well-documented up to this point and, though it may not be the most star-studded host of roster additions to arrive in Ashburn this summer (which could turn out to be a good thing), there's no arguing the Redskins have improved their offensive personnel.
