He won't always be in the pocket. As I wrote, I have no problem with rolling him out with his having the option to run or running the occaisional QB draw. So, yes, use his speed and running talent judiciously.

But running option plays is an invitation to injury for RGIII. You should know why. It's because, to defense the option offense, one defensive player is assigned to tackle the QB. The QB is not an uncovered player when running the option. He's going to get hit when he runs the option - and hit hard.

The idea that the Redskins D quickly caught on to stopping the option in practice but other team's defenses won't because they don't see it as often is a bunch of baloney. Defenses are going to be looking for RGIII to run option plays and, when they see it, they are going to knock the crap out of the relatively small - not huge like Cam Newton or Tim Tebow - RGIII.

How many times does RGIII have to get hit to be injured? The correct answer is once. That being the case, I don't see the wisdom in exposing him to unecessary hits.

Fun read. Easy to get excited

3. Coach Mike Shanahan is going to incorporate plays that suit his new athletic quarterback.
During both practices, there was a strong emphasis on designed quarterback runs. Normally at an NFL practice, a designed quarterback run consists of either a QB draw or a QB sneak. That wasn't the case here. There were zone-read plays (where the QB reads the defensive end and elects to hand off the ball or keep it depending on the action of the defender), speed-option plays and quarterback sweeps throughout the day. They even spent some time lining up in the pistol formation. Several of these plays and formations were almost identical to the Baylor offense. Shanahan's offense has always incorporated a moving pocket in the passing game, but this is a new brand of football exclusively tailored to Griffin's strengths.

Re: Washington Post: Redskins Training Camp Observations

Just caught D.Hall on NFL network. Boy did he sound excited about the defense and brimming with confidence. I really sense a level a maturity with him this year. He was gushing with praise about RG3..and oddly, Jim Haslett. He made it a point to say two years ago the defense was ranked 31, last year they were 13, an he expects it get better.

He also gave big props to Rak and Kerrigan. He was going on and on about how awesome Kerrigan is.

Can't fcukign wait for this thing to start!!

Read they searched his room and only found a Redskins Sweatshirt. Either kidnapping or he simply picked up and left.

A linebacker, safety, or cornerback who has to worry about Gryphon keeping will be distracted from passing game responsibilities. So I think Gryphon should run in an intentional way more than most other QB's.

However, I agree with you about the specter of injury. So if Gryphon runs just enough to establish the threat and keep defenses honest, that will be good enough for me.
Agree 100%. He have to make sure DF's are aware of the threat that's the only way they will stay honest. He's FAST.

That's pretty crappy they wouldn't even notify the coaching staff.
