Garcon: Redskins offense can be 'best ever'

Pierre Garcon is confident the Washington Redskins will reach new heights offensively.

Pierre Garcon is confident the Washington Redskins offense will reach a level never seen before.

"We have the potential to be the best offense ever, really," Garcon told reporters Thursday. "We can be the top offense in the league. We have a lot of great players at every position. We have a great offensive line, great tight ends, great receivers, running backs and quarterback."

The Redskins have a ways to go if they hope to reach the wide receiver's lofty goals.

Washington scored 436 points last season, ranking fourth in the league. The 2007 New England Patriots, who went 16-0 in the regular season, own the NFL record for points in a season with 589.

The Redskins also enter this season with questions as dynamic second-year quarterback Robert Griffin III is coming back after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery. He is not expected to play during the preseason.

In addition to Griffin, Garcon and tight end Fred Davis are returning from injuries. Garcon was limited to 10 games last season with a nagging toe injury while Davis is making his way back after suffering a torn Achilles tendon in Week 7 that ended his campaign.

"It definitely helps having a lot of weapons out there on offense," Garcon said. "With Fred back, he's like another receiver and he does a great job blocking -- does a great job of whenever he gets the ball, being able to score from anywhere on the field."

Garcon believes another year with Griffin will enhance things.

"He throws the ball, and I just go get it wherever he puts it," Garcon said. "We continue to be on the same page. We understand the playbook a little better now.

"Our chemistry will be better than ever. Whenever Robert gets back out there, whenever he can throw with the team, we're going to continue to grow."
