With the amount of success the 49ers had using it last night, it's not going ANYWHERE.
Not with our scrawny ass QB, RG3 is just not thickly built like Kapernick, or Russel Wilson, the guy is really thin legged. He is basically built like a track star. Freaking waste of 3 1st round picks.......sigh. This franchise is just cursed, now I believe it
I think it would be a mistake to get rid of the read option. Especially if RG3 does a better job of protecting himself and not try to get those extra couple of meaningless yards.
Its fun watching other teams copy the Redskins. I know that the Redskins didn't invent the read option, but they showed the NFL, if ran properly, it is a ***** to stop.

How many times does it have to be mentioned that Griffin didn't get hurt on any read option plays? To deal with the Bengals strategy of hitting Griffin on every play, Griffin started putting his hands up whenever he handled the ball off, which was recommended from the refs. The read option should stay cause when they pass out of it, it's deadly!
Don't scrap it, but limit the times to use it. I agree with some of the recent posts that suggest griffin didn't get hurt on the read option, I think that kyle will have to pick and choose the times when it will benefit the redskins to run it or not.
We adjusted, and defense's couldn't do a thing after that. It's here and it's here to stay. And it's awesome. The only thing defense's can do is if they change their entire personnel on the Dline to include two massive, All-Pro, DTs (more in the mold of NTs) in the middle and two very fast, All-Pro, DEs on the edges in an attempt to take both the QB hitting the edges and RB up the middle out. That's going to be very hard to do, though.

Watching these divisional games, seeing Kaep and Wilson run around like chickens in the middle of the field, just doesn't seem fair.
If RG3 can be a super-bowl winning QB sitting back like Peyton, then fine, let him be that and ditch the option read. But I doubt that's fully utilizing him. I say you run it, and you run it as effectively as you can. If RG3 gets hurt again, he gets hurt, and you move on. But you don't gimp your offense because of a worry of another injury. Then you're sitting at the end of the year wondering "what could have been" if we ran our offense at 100% capability.

The Hungry Mann.
His Heisman Year in 2011... Griffin passed for 4,293 yds , 37 Tds, 6 ints and rushed for 699yds and 10 Tds...... And this was after his ACL injury.
When Griffin comes back I'd expect the Baylor Griffin.. The one who stood tall in the pocket and zipped passes to Kendall Wright. 37 TDs passes!!
The pistol will be there, but there is no need to run Griffin like we did. He ran for more yards in the NFL than any year in college. That's really unheard of.
