Who's "R 3 G"?
C'mon, somebody had to have heard that last segment on Mike & Mike regarding RG3. I swear, even from all the way over here in Delaware, I could hear the collective heads in DC just exploding after that segment. To recap, they both agreed (based on tk's comments on PTI last night), "Let the kid play". Let him run, don't change who he is. I think the most shocking part was when they compared him to vick coming out of college, just pouring adoration over the kid (was a bit awkward). Overall a good soundbite if someone can find it, immediately made me think of all these threads concerning him running the ball. "Let the kid play!"
RG3's injury has NOTHING to do with the playcalling. The concussion he received on that hit has NOTHING to do with any kind of compounding from other hits he's had this year. The play itself was not even a designed running play. It was RG3 trying to make something out of nothing, which the coaches have repeatedly tried to teach him he needs to let some plays go and throw it away or slide. In fact, Kyle exposed RG3 the least out of any of our 5 games so far this year against Atlanta. How on Earth can any of you say this is on play calling/Kyle? He basically had RG3 playing pure pocket passer on Sunday.
We gave it to Morris on 18 of our 48 plays. That isnt abandoning the run. This aint the 80s when you can Riggo Drill every play.

I think RGIII trying to get extra yards instead of running out of bounds or not throwing the ball away when he should've is what got him hurt...my opinion...learning experience for him...can't be upset that he wanted the extra yardage...but defenses are just as fast as he is on this level...they're coming after him just like they do all QB's at this level....
Like i've said he's got to play and learn and that hit was most definitely a learning experience aka kid touching the hot stove moment.
It has been said of RG3 that he rarely makes the same mistake twice. Let's hope for his sake and the team's that he learns to throw the ball away and live for another play.
You cannot just look at the box score and determine "the Redskins abandoned the run" without examining the totality of the game. Abandoning the run is not what happened.
Griffin not throwing the ball in the 10th row behind the endzone was the result of his injury. Close thread.
