Former Redskins Super Bowl MVP and ex Grambling coach, Doug Williams, knows a little bit about Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan.

Williams was the opposing quarterback when he faced off against Shanahan and John Elway in Super Bowl XXII.  Williams was a guest on NFL Network, and says he sees one big similarity in those old Broncos teams and the current version of the Redskins: the quarterbacks.

“I see a common link the way he coaches, but back then I think he had that guy, they had John Elway,” Williams said on NFL Network’s “NFL GameDay First.” “I think now he has that guy, he has Robert Griffin, if he can get up and play with the health and everything.”

Williams views RGIII’s mobility as the key to what makes Shanahan’s offense click.

“I think the last couple weeks he is playing the way Mike wants him to play,” Williams said. “Mainly, move around, mobile quarterback and make plays. I don’t think John ran nearly as much as Robert Griffin has done, but he does move around and Shanahan likes that.”
