What time is a good time to run a trick play then?

As much as i love RG3 like the rest of the Skins fans here. He made a mistake. he had 2 options Run out of bounds or Throw the ball away. He choose neither and the end result is what it is. I wish him a good recovery but he has to start thinking about his safety just as much. Him taking punishment when he doens't have to will hurt this team. And i feel after all this he'll finally know that. Griff is a important key on this team and we need him on the field not off. Just my
I think we all saw Kyle eased off plays from recent weeks in which he got hit far too often. So minimizing risk for III is on his radar, at least to me. Gone is the option, for instance. Kyle could certainly add plays that further minimize QB injury risks. Realize our OL is... dangerous. And leads to him scrambling. I dont blame him for the injury, but there are plays we abstain from ever using, that may help him survive as a rookie. Used around the league for decades and shunned here, the end zone fade. We finally have the tall boys now, to do it. Try it!

We run the zone read, we run the single back pistol, we run the pistol with the fullback, we run I-formation with Darrel Young, we run the triple option.
It seems more like what you want us to do is what Gibbs did; run I-formation, pound it up the gut and play action off that. That's not the way our offense is designed to operate.
What good has Kyle done? Seriously, am I missing something? Is this the twilight zone? Is our combined record during his tenure as OC not 13-24? Have we finished anywhere other than last place in the division during Kyle's time here? Now obviously, this is not all his fault, and he's certainly not responsible for the players he inherited. We drafted our franchise QB; we drafted a stud RB; we signed some receivers who we think (hope) will be an upgrade. I'm perfectly willing to sit back and watch him work this season. But, I don't understand what he's done to deserve the benefit of the doubt. His time in Houston? That was Kubiak all the way. That's like saying Josh McDaniels was the key to the Patriots offensive attack. He hasn't shown me anything. We still have a losing record; he still abandons the run, and we still find ways to lose games instead of finding ways to win.
RG has probably got hit less than 3/4 of the QBS in the league the past two weeks. Kid just needs to learn when to give up on a play and get out of bounds.
And Kyle is doing a great job.

I do think this offense lacks identity. And it starts with the father son duo both having their styles, yet one or the other having to concede to the other. Its tough to single out Kyle for any of our offensive woes, when Mike seems to care less about pass protection, and cares more about zone run blocking abilities. Its a pass league now, but Iron Mike wants to run a little more than Kyle does. While I personally like a dynamic offense,I think the two Shanny's are ironing out their differences. We dont know who calls what.
Where were you when the defense was sucking it up the last couple weeks? I mean, they played a solid game on Sunday, but were you as hard as Jim Haslett as you're being on Kyle Shanahan right now?

If you can watch anyone in our division play and still say our offensive line sucks then I don't now what to tell you.
Kyle has been a little too conservative the last two weeks IMO. And NO it is not why RG3 got hurt. But yes too conservative on the play calling.
Nope. Not at all. RG3 needs to learn how to protect the football. Tie game, 3rd quarter. Those 3 points are important.
That bunch formation in the red zone, you could tell the play was boom or bust. I was watching the game at the SportsBook in Vegas and like 5 different people were screaming at RG3 to protect the ball and not take chances there. What resulted was an injury, but could've just as easily been a turnover.
