Command , in response to your observation re: RG 3, I have posted elsewhere that I don't expect shanny to expose him on run/option plays. I think the medical history has already been written on RG3, and shanny is betting his job on RG3 staying healthy. Watch and see RG3 become a very adequate pocket passer, who escapes out of the pocket at times, but not often. To turn RG3 loose to me is just plain nuts. Much as I love to watch the guy, an incredible talent, dance and dodge much bigger defenders, the repeat knee injuries, this time a double dose, does not bode well for his long term stay in the nfl. You know the saying NFL...not for long. Well that is going to be RG3 if shanny puts him in run/option most of the time. I just don't see him doing that, because without RG, the skins got nuthin'. And if RG is injured, shanny won't last after this yr in Washington.
To be honest, I likewise think Coach H has taken notes on RG3, his injuries, and subsequent team outcome. Without RG, Skins are nothing. Without Kap....well, we could compete, but NFCC and SB? Highly unlikely, and don't think for a minute that Coach H hasn't noticed. That is one reason why I can't wait for season to start...to see how JH handles Kap and the running issue. At least last yr, Coach got Kap to quit trying to run over LBs and slide instead. Same goes for going out of bounds vs staying in, getting a few more yards and some nasty licks. I don't like saying this but I look for Kap to be moving more toward a pocket passer with escape ability , but not running as a steady diet. That 600 yds running in 7 games? I don't think so this yr. Kap is just too valuable to put him out there running over LBs. Let frank, kyle, LMJ, Dixon, due that. Now, the THREAT of Kap taking off...many times that alone will freeze the OLBs , or DBs if playing up close. So the threat alone is good enough in many cases. Then when kap does take off, well, it is sure exciting, but I always cross my fingers and pray he slides.
