When this board get finished with Robert...He will be the bestest Q.B ...Ever.
There are two things RGIII lacks in, this is one of them. The other is knowing how to slide and protect himself while doing it. RGIII held the ball way too long on many plays, in fact he seemed to lock into a receiver during those plays. He will need to learn to look at other parts of the field first and then the main receiver, and if its not there either scramble if possible or throw the ball away. Right now playing smart like that is as important as creating big plays, hell its even more important. He can't afford to get hurt again.
After watching games during the season and the playoffs recently - Both Wilson and Kaepernick are a little better at protecting themselves and/or "living to run another play" than RG3 at this point in their career. Robert's was a little more reckless, although he did do a good job protecting the ball, just not himself at times.
But I strongly believe that will change moving forward -- it has to.

In addition to him being an outstanding QB, this is probably part of the reason why RG's completion percentage was so high. He didn't readily do "throw aways."
Russel Wilson doesn't slide but doesn't take hits????? I know why though,it's because of the hype forced on RGIII by the media. Players are taking hits on RGIII every chance they get. How come when RG runs the option he has to run with his hand up in the air letting the defense know that he doesn't have the ball, but RW on the other hand can just play out the fake without taking any hits. Also I noticed that RW never chooses to slide,but doesn't seem to get hit at all? My take on it is the hype factor maybe the difference

So the turnover prone-ness was true early in the year, where most of Russell Wilson's turnovers were. He didn't start out as strong as RG3, but he got it together and is a different QB. In the last 8 games, he and RG3 both had the same number, and RG3 missed a game.
I just meant that every rookie has flaws. Griffin's flaws are understandable, admirable to an extent, and (hopefully) easily corrected.
Also, a starting level RT and a possession WR would likely drastically reduce the need for him to scramble.
Basically, all rookies have to overcome flaws. I just think Griffin's are more correctable than most.
