Redskins make it clear, they’ll continue to run the zone-read with RG3

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has made it clear that they’ll continue to run the zone-read this coming season.  They don’t believe quarterback Robert Griffin III is at risk for injury.  Instead they believe it protects him.

Shanahan is right, but when a quarterback is running the zone-read option he’s still vulnerable to getting hit as a ball-carrier.

    Sincerely a positive.::: I’ve said it before: The fast-paced, no-huddle, spread offense, read/option, run and gun (‘chuck and duck’) is the FUTURE of the NFL. I look at Colin Kaeprenick S.F. 49ers, Russell (5’11 1/2″) Wilson, qb with Seahawks; Michael Vick & crew @ Philly Eagles under Chip Kelley (GO DUCKS), RGIII and his fullback under Shanahan and Shanahan’s read/option…..We just have to wait & see what Genius Bilichek does with my main man Tim Tebow.
    And you know you Tebow haters, go to and LOOK at what this honorable man is doing ALL OVER THE WORLD. If you get humbled, make a donation.
    Oh, I almost forgot b___

    urp !!
