During today’s show on ESPN’s First Take, analyst Skip Bayless mentioned that a Redskins insider claims that Robert Griffin III told the coaching staff that he wants to get away from read-option this season because he believes he can be as good of a pass as Peyton Manning.
It certainly looks like the Skins have abandoned the read-option for the most part. If Griffin did tell the coaching staff that he no longer wants to run it, then he’s very smart man. He’s thinking about his future as an NFL player. RG3 clearly knows that the more he runs, the greater the chance of him tearing his ACL again.
