1. Protect Yourself - This is easier said than done, but RGIII still needs to get better at sliding and getting out-of-bounds to avoid contact. And now that Mike Shanahan is gone, I doubt we’ll see the read-option as much. So the amount of hits RGIII takes should go down. He also needs to get the ball out quicker, as holding out to make a play too often can result in defensive linemen getting clear shots on him.
