Itís hard for numbers to capture the sheer excitement that Robert Griffin III brings to Washington football. Although it seems that his performance already has been sliced and diced in every possible way, thereís one more dimension of Griffinís play that has gone overlooked in the Redskinsí recent three-game run: He is drastically outperforming his offensive line.
Iíve written before about measuring production using Expected Points Added (EPA). Itís a measure of net point productivity that accounts for down, distance and field position. It captures almost everything about a play, including runs, passes, turnovers and even penalties. Offensive line production can be measured with EPA too, but only indirectly.
