Dude is tough but all it takes is 1 hit to get seriously hurt. Go down RG3 -- there is not a single yard out there that is worth getting seriously hurt over.
Its football and he had to sacrifice his body to help the team win. QBs who stay in the pocket like Big Ben take the worse hits.

As for the poll I have a hard time as for who to go for, there's definitely a joint game ball going to Forbath, Cousins, RG3 and Crawford. All 4 played major roles in earning the W today.

I wouldn't say he exactly HAD to. I mean the guy was completely throwing his body around out there this game. But there's no questioning his passion and dedication. Dude wants to win, even if he's destroying his body in the process.

Exactly!! nobody is playing like an all-star in the backfield. Let's look at possibly the best cornerback in the game -- Champ Bailey. Win or lose, the guy is a class act. Never throws his teammates under the bus or mouths off when he gives up a big play. DHall has been statistically show to be the worst, or very near the worst starting cornerback in this league.

Lead by example DHall whether you play well or not.

Does sacrificing your body so that it is a 3rd and 4 when you could have slid to make it a 3rd and 6 help the team win?

And where in my post did I say he should stay in the pocket? I said he needs to slide and avoid hits completely because, let's be honest, his 218 lb frame can't take hits from guys like Ngata who outweigh him by more than a 100 lbs.

Its hard telling a competitor to slide. Look at Vick everyone has been telling him to slide but he fights for every inch. I think it comes down to him learning how to go through progressions and realizing running is his absolutely last option and when he does sprint for the sideline. But teaching someone to slide that plays like him is almost impossible. He has that Elway factor to him that will fight for every inch when he scrambles.

he was running....less severe injuries happen when running and diving than in the pocker absorbing hits. Ask Cutler

RG3 could avoid those injuries by sliding feet first

I love self-defeating arguments -- LOOK AT VICK!!! all that talent which is in a sense wasted because he doesn't play smart. If you're really a competitor, and not an imbecile, you realize that you would rather sacrifice some meaningless yards now for 5 more years of playing rather than get those yards and be out of the game much sooner than you would like. Is Tom Brady not competitive because he doesn't sacrifice his body in the same way?

Dude, read my post, I am saying he should slide. That hit he took was completely unnecessary and he accomplished nothing by taking it.

This stuff just makes me face-palm. If he's just going to sit back there and take a sack, we might as well have started Grossman and kept the picks. If you insist RG3 stops all of his "RG3-ness', we're right back to square one and possibly wouldn't have won a game all year.

Brady sacrifices his body by hanging in their till the last minute until so he can throw to his receiver. Why does Big Ben get injured? Because he waits until the last minute and then throws the ball. They might not be scrambling because they know they can't but they are competitive for every yard in their own way. Remember when Brady tore his ACL? its because he was waiting until the last minute to throw it downfield. So Brady, Big Ben, Manning all sacrifice their bodies they just do it in a different way buy hanging in the pocket in order to make the proper throw. Griffin does it by scrambling and hanging in the pocket until the last minute. Manning needed neck surgeries because he took hits in order to get the ball downfield. Great quarterbacks are competitive for every yard in their own ways.

It happens all the time. I mean (and I HATE cliches) but hindsight is 20/20. There are a number of instances this year where he COULD have slid and the game might have had a different outcome.
