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 http://www.timtebowfoundation.org and LOOK at what this honorable man is doing ALL OVER THE WORLD. If you get humbled, make a donation.
