If he chooses not to for whatever reason perhaps someone who knows him can get his sources. I'm interested in reading the actual person's(s) take who saw Cousins out-playing RG3 in 7 on 7.

I agree. If you're going to put information like that out there, the least you can do is back it up, or if it's just your personal opinion, put that out there. My unnamed source tells me that putting unsubstantiated claims out there is not well received in the journalism business.

Just to clarify. I'm not saying we should use the option as our primary package, or alter the system completely, but instead offer more option looks to disturb defensives predictive abilities. I don't believe the option will be used (if it is at all), as a systemic staple. Moreover what I was eluding to in saying it's a hopeful prospect applies more to the coaching staffs willingness to adopt a less popular package in order to facilitate, and reinforce the strengths of the personel. The hopefulness spawns from the logic that this microcosm could eventually permeate the overall mentality.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Where did Mike Shanahan hint at the option (3 times)?

Had a busy weekend and hadn't heard this.....

Re: RGIII Named Starter

I thought RG3 said he is a pocket passer, that is his strength. Not a run a scrambling QB running the option. Let him learn the offense first. Once he gets injuried running the ball, I dont want to hear the complaining. U know why the option isnt run in the NFL?

If it can be used in a way that 1.) Our QB is not taking too many hits and 2.) defenses fear it enough to adjust to it (like you said) then I think it could be used effectively and really screw up pass coverages.

I agree, if coach Shanahan is sincere (I believe he is) it is exciting to hear his willingness to tweak the offense to use all of RG3's weapons.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Kinda didn't plan on listening to 30 minute interview on a rookie mini-camp just to hear a couple of sentences.
Could someone just tell me what he said or tell me where he spoke about running the option?

RGIII is a pocket passer primarily. I'm not a big fan of running the option in the NFL - because defenses are much too quick for an option offense to be very successful. Maybe in a very limited, occasional option play. I'm assuming when Shanahan talks about tweaking the offense to fit it with what Griffin does the best, then he's talking about putting in more shotgun, spread type of plays rather than option runs.

I agree -He is a quarterback with "olympic speed". If you watch him run he runs more like a track guy IMO than a RB -- more straight up speed and less "shake n bake". He is going to need to master the "slide" and getting out of bounds when he runs to avoid unnecessary hits.

Here is one instance, u lazy fan lol

Coach Shanahan at 23:55 - "...the fun part about Robert, the reason why we gave up what we gave up, is that he can do some things I believe no one has done. The dropping back, play action, quarterback keeps, option, and we'll see what he is comfortable with as time goes on..."

Re: RGIII Named Starter

you know what would scare defenses more from the Skins? Basic, competent decision making from the QB position.

Mentions it around the 9 minute mark. Talks about he can run the option and how he believes only Cam and Tebow can run it well in the NFL

He does stress though that RGIII is a passer first, but with other skills
