Wow! I'll be the first to admit that I did not watch many Redskin games this year... pretty much just caught the highlights. I had no idea how many designed run plays RGIII had this past season, and it's so obvious now why he was hurting by the end of the season. This guy just cannot last carrying such a load!
Also noticed it seems he hangs onto the ball way too frequently in the read option compared to Kap. It's like RGIII is not as sharp at "reading" the defense compared to Kap and thus gets himself into a lot of trouble resulting in big hits. Opinions?
That's why I laugh when I see people who hate on Kaepernick because they think his game is the same as RG3s. and they say that he won't last season. I Can't think of any hits he took this season on design runs that were anywhere close to As violent as the hits that RG3 took.
Yea....looks like the Shanni's were willing to do anything to get an offense. No sense whatsoever. RGIII running right up the middle for 2 yds? It's one thing to deploy this intelligently, but, watching this, you get a real feel for how absolutely RECKLESS they were with him.
Why don't you make something similar for Kap, but instead of designed runs, it could be scrambles, read-options, etc.
