As soon as the Nats season ends(hopefully at the very end of October )the Skins should hire someone from the Nats to spend time with RG3 teaching him how to slide. It's really embarrassing a professional athlete doesn't know how to slide.
But I thought for the most part RG3 played well. He went through his progressions and made some nice throws. There were a couple instances where he backpedalled instead of stepping up in the pocket though, and the pick was really bad, but it's progress.
Maybe we can work out a deal. RG3 can go to spring training and learn how to slide, the Nats can go back to little league and learn how to run the bases. But that's a discussion for another board.
Was watching the baseball game so only skimmed through the 'Skins for now, will watch tomorrow so I'm commenting blind for now. Other than Robert scrambling like it was fourth down in the Super Bowl I liked what I saw. The INT was dumb, he should have chunked it out of bounds and taken the FG, you can't throw across the field without stepping into the throw. The Almo fumble is a once in a blue moon thing, getting stuffed at the goal line on 4 straight runs didn't even bother me too much because I think we run a different play or two if it is the regular season.
I believe when we start manipulating defenses this offense will be pretty good. I'm hoping Griffin has easier throws and decisions.
