So 2-3 times a game. It gets your QB killed. We do the option now way, Way, WAY too much.

I'd much rather have RG3 in the pocket, bombing passes down the field like he was doing today, than optioning him 10+ times a game, or like what we did in the bengals game, getting him killed.
He had to learn how to keep himself safe, and he's doing better. You can't blame the scheme when he's the one running the plays.

I said we don't plan to run it as our base offense, not that we weren't going to run some read option plays at all. There is a huge difference in what I said. How do I know? Because we aren't running it as a base right now. The first few games we ran a lot of the read option and have been tapering off as the weeks have gone by.

edit: As noted by people that do know, RGIII doesn't like the read option.
