Very true but if u watch Lamar, he doesn't really slide at all

It isn't just about sliding, some guys are just good at not getting blasted with a hard tackle because they move to lessen the blow right before they are hit. Kind of like a boxer who slips punches thrown at him. Barry Sanders was real good at that, it was rare when a tackler got a straight hard shot on him.

Gotta be weird to backup Lamar Jackson if you're RG3. He is watching everything he was supposed to be. Jackson is clearly more talented, but a huge part of RG3s downfall was his humongous ego. Came from the Big 12 and thought he could just walk into the NFL and automatically be an elite drop back passer.

Pretty sure Jackson will suffer the same fate as RGIII eventually. It's just a matter of time as often as he runs it. He'll get blasted at some point. He's awesome right now though...too bad they didn't convert him to receiver.lol

Totally. RG3 was just a sprinter. Jackson could literally play RB.

Running the ball in the NFL is very dangerous. No question.
But a qb throwing in the pocket with eyes down field looking for receivers, blind to DL/LBs is just as vulnerable or more.
When running the ball, at least your eyes are looking for defenders. You can be blindsided at any time, but when running, you can also stiff arm, dive, and angle yourself to try to lessen the blow. A QB throwing the ball cannot defend themselves at all, just like a Reciever catching the ball. Exposing yourself to a defenseless situation like this over and over again will eventually catch up to you
