"I think that you'll see a mobile, pro-style quarterback rather than a run-first type of quarterback," ElAttrache said. "I don't know that the longevity that he would have would be what you'd want to center your franchise around."


Another doctor who says rg3 will come back and be a mobile qb who's not run first, which is exactly what he is now. So I'm not concerned. He might lose a 10th or 2 10ths off his 40, big deal.i


Your missing the bigger picture Turtle. Your offense by it's definition makes RGIII more of a run first option then the typical pocket passer. Whether RGIII loses speed or not if they continue having your QB on average intentionally run/scramble 8x a game, he will be injured again at some point.


Except we don't have him intentional run or scramble 8x a game. He does it on his own, and those are the plays he's been hurt on.


So your offense doesn't ask your QB to run the option? Your not going to make the excuse that RGIII chooses to run the 8 times because he has the "option" are you? That's a cop out if true. This is not a typical pocket passing offense where a QB scrambles only when plays break down or in certain down and distances ala Aaron Rodgers. Shannahan intentionally game plans for RGIII to exploit teams with his legs. Let's not pretend otherwise now that it has resulted in injury in it's first year.


If you consider every one of our play action plays a zone read, sure. But he may run the ball off a design run 5 times a game, almost always making it out of bounds taking no actual hits. All his injuries have come from scrambles trying to make big plays to win the game at the end, he than re-tweaked an injury by falling out of bounds.

At the beginning of the year, he was taking off in the zone read all the time but that was toned way down after the break.

Seems that Andrews is in agreement that RG3 should be able to start the season! Just thought I'd post this for all the doubters Laughing

He still will have to receive some hits, it one thing to make it there but wait till he plants an throws and gets leveled at the same time. His frame and build always worried me, i said back in the raft forum last year before he got hurt that his legs an upper body were just to thin and lean, and he looked more like a Olympic Hurderler then a NFL QB. You look at Russell Wilson and hes just so solid from head toe, compact and stout, you look at RGIII and he just doesnt look built for the game. Wait till he breaks a fww ribs like Vick and they never heal right again. If he return early , he needs to be a strict pocket passer and adding another 15-20 pounds would prolong his career.

I would hope RGIII already has those Kevlar vests in his locker already, seemed to help Vick take hits to the mid-section after he started wearing it.

he already weighs 225, you want him to weigh 245?
